Jose Padilha‘s remake of RoboCop has an incredibly difficult line to walk.  Whereas Paul Verhoeven‘s original gleefully fired off satire and explosive action, Padilha seems to be trying to keep the satire (Samuel L. Jackson‘s Bill O’Reilly-esque pundit) while maintaining a slightly serious tact by commenting on drone warfare and exploring questions of free will.  I don’t know if he’ll be able to pull it off, but I’m curious what we’ll see from a new trailer when it’s released on Thursday.  In the meantime, there are new images showing off Jackson’s character, Pat Novak, as well as Liz Kline (Jennifer Ehle), Maddox (Jackie Earle Haley), and Dr. Dennett Norton (Gary Oldman).

Hit the jump to check out the images, and be sure to come back Thursday when the new trailer is released.  The film also stars Joel Kinnaman, Abbie Cornish, Jay Baruchel, and Michael KeatonRoboCop opens on February 12, 2014.

Here’s the official synopsis for RoboCop:

In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years – and it’s meant billions for OmniCorp’s bottom line. Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it. When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) – a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit – is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the machine pursuing justice.
