An international trailer has been released for Jose Padilha‘s remake of RoboCop along with some new images.  The film takes place in 2028 and finds the sleazy OminiCorp putting its drone technology to use on domestic grounds by way of taking blown-apart cop Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) and turning him into a cyborg police officer.  The experiment on Murphy is meant to be the first of many RoboCops the company hopes to put in every U.S. city, but obviously things don’t go as planned.  The new trailer finally highlights an interesting difference between the original and the remake; in the original, Murphy has almost no self-awareness and he struggles to find his humanity, but in the remake it looks like Murphy already has that awareness and it could make for an interesting dynamic, especially in terms of the relationship with his wife (Abbie Cornish).

Hit the jump to check out the international trailer and new images.  The film also stars Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jennifer Ehle, Jay Baruchel, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, and Samuel L. JacksonRoboCop opens February 12, 2014.

Via The Playlist.

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.

    I’m going to go give it a shot. I’m going to watch it, but everything I see makes me think the creators of this are completely ignoring what made the original unique.

    • King Bumi

      People complain about shot-for-shot remakes.
      People complain about re-imaginings that take the base concept only.
      People complain about remakes that add homages to the original but fail to live up to it.

      Guess no one can every be pleased……

        What has been a successful reboot? I can’t think of any at the moment. I really liked Tron.

      • Ben Wigler

        durrr… the Nolan Dark Knight trilogy? I’m personally not a huge fan of them, but in terms of ‘successful reboot,’ they wrote the book. Now, unfortunately, everyone is trying to replicate what they did.

        “What has been a successful reboot?”….
        Batman Begins,
        Casino Royale (yes, it’s a reboot, Bond films wrote the book on reboots obviously),
        Dredd,
        Rise of the Planet of the Apes
        and Star Trek ’09 (minority opinions not withstanding) to name a few.

        That being said I am not optimistic about this Robocop whatsoever. Re-imaginings of ultra-violent sci-fi/action franchises that are 80′s classics as PG-13 soulless cash grabs are not my cup of tea.

        Furthermore, what I’ve never understood is, how are such decisions supposed to APPEAL to the core fan base of said properties (i.e. the generation that grew up watching the original Terminator, Predator, Aliens, Robocop etc…)??
        I understand that a PG-13 rating nets more profit in theory, but in this case it certainly seems not only an aesthetic blunder but an economic one as well.

      • ClarenceBoddicker

        and this movie looks moronic at worst, or forgettable at best.

      • JBug

        Great comment. I personally feel the “ultra-violent sci-fi/action” (well-put) aspect of the 80′s films is dated and can you a face lift. I appreciate the novelty that is Terminator 1, but the wider appeal lighter Terminator 2 is IMO a much better movie. I don’t care about the PG-13 rating as much as I care what genre the film will fit it, and I believe the popcorn action blockbuster suits Robocop much better that the dark “ultra-violent sci-fi/action”. I don’t think people want to be disturbed when they go to a movie where the protagonist is wearing a suit of some sort (not to dish on the Kick-Ass type of disturbing).

      • ClarenceBoddicker

        Thanks, and most definitely I agree a lot of the 80′s films in question could benefit from a makeover, and have the potential to be lastingly relevant and appealing in their themes and visceral delights as well.

        It’s just that when I see something like Robocop, which besides being unbelievably bleak and violent, was also cathartic, technically astounding , a triumph of production design and atmosphere, tightly plotted, featured some of the most vile villains you’ll find on screen, AND a brilliantly subversive satire…I really doubt the new creative team has the inclination, vision, nerve, or aptitude to make good of it’s premise. And I think the PG-13 is indicative of that.

        But I HOPE I’m wrong, of course i do. It would love to be surprised. Hell, even if it turned out merely efficient and not totally braindead, I’d be very happy that a new generation had been exposed to it, and perhaps prompted to eventually see the original.

        Star trek from 2009, the jj shitfest, that is a REMAKE, and so is its’ equally shitfested sequel. There are only 10 Star Trek movies, JJ’s shitty remakes do not count.

      • ClarenceBoddicker

        Semantics. My favorite. Apfffft….
        Besides that though, you didn’t like Star Trek ’09, good for you. I generally didn’t like Star Trek: The Motion Picture, The Final Frontier, Generations, Insurrection or Nemesis for the most part. So by my count there’s only 7 Star Trek movies: parts II, III, IV, VI, First Contact and JJ’s two “shitfests”. There, is that arbitrary and off topic enough for you?
        Technically speaking, I believe you would concur that this new Robocop is also a remake. But who cares.

        Very true.

        I don’t view myself as a random squeaky wheel. In this case, you have a film with a concept and a specific tone and satire. The remake (based on the trailers) abandons the tone and satire and runs with the concept. Which in this case, I think the plot and tone need to go hand and hand to work properly. The original has a specific concept and a specific tone, and they fed off each other.

        With 25 years passed there was an opportunity to tell the same story with the same satire in a new and different way in the post internet/personal computer/smart phone explosion world. The trailers aren’t showing me that.

        I’m going to give it a fair shot, but at this point, it seems they’re running with the plot and not the tone/satire.

      • Diego Fernando Salazar Proaño

        You said exactly what I was going to say. Look, I love the original movie, but this one actually takes something that always bothered me: what the hell happened to Murphy’s family? As Goldberg said: this could make an interesting dynamic for the character.

        People also complain about crappy looking action movies, regardless if they’re remakes or not.

        I can’t say there’s a single compelling thing about what I’m seeing other than there are some very talented actors being wasted on what looks like a terrible, terrible film. I may watch it on video. I may also watch a car crash on YouTube, doesn’t make it good. Just a curiousity…

      If they copied what made the original unique, then neither the new film nor the original would be unique, thus rendering your point moot. You can’t have a completely faithful remake or people bitch. You can’t change direction or people bitch. Either way, you’re bitching.

    Great actors in goldman Keaton et al but I’m highly cautious about remakes…at this point I won’t see it unless people I know in real life tell ke it’s good and I trust their opinions.

    I will make an obvious prediction. The original will be remembered this not. It is incredible but the original seems to be more contemporary than this movie. An i dont like his human hand. Doesnt fit. I know why is there but somehow it doesnt work.

    Minor gripe, but I don’t like the human voice he has post-transformation. In the earlier trailers he had the machine/vocoder voice, why not now? I’m not digging it.

    This trailer actually makes it look better than the previous footage we’ve seen. I think it will be a decent watch, entertaining but forgettable. Its always hard doing a remake, especially when the original had such a specific tone, if you try and rehash that then its seen as a carbon copy, if you try and add little easter eggs and homages it doesn’t live up to the original, and if you try and step away from it too much it’s just seen as a failure. But to be fair, there has been movies with terrible trailers that ended up being pretty good, and movies with great trailers that the end product wasn’t so good. So will need to wait and see it to reserve judgement.

    Samuel L Jackson sure is one productive actor haha. That dude is in everything lately!

  • MicoY

    Most of the comments are so predictable! It’s seems to be a new fashion, quite vile though: you watch a pair of trailers, few pics, and then you feel great by giving bad and mean comments… No consideration for the people working in the movie, not only the actors or the director, but ALL the people who works and lives because of the movie industry… No consideration for the whole work which isn’t just a trailer, but a long and hard process… For people loving the movies, it’s so disrespectful to act like that, and to be such a negative Cassandra just to satisfy your own ego… It’s really too childish… My opinion is that Collider has to do something in order to educate its viewers who apparently are mostly average teens, and therefore still know very little about everything…

    • BigJimSlade

      Pathetic rant, bro.
      The movie looks terrible, chill with the hyperbole.

    still looks terrible. you know what the original robocop needed more of? more ‘you have to talk to your son’ scenes.

    really not sure why everyone thinks this looks so terrible.. i’m pretty sure if the total recall remake hadn’t been so awful, people wouldn’t be bashing this nearly as much. of course, the rumors about production troubles didn’t help with the hype. i love the verhoeven original but who’s to say that a modern update is completely unwarranted? if a man was really enhanced with cutting edge robotics for the purpose of serving the police, you would think he would have to be a little bit more agile then peter weller was in that film. i was already excited for this movie, but this trailer is FANTASTIC. I will definitely have to wait for some reviews and such, but i have a strong feeling I will be checking this one out in theatres

    They should retitle to: CopRobo instead of RoboCop.
    The vibe I get is a Cop in a Robo suit and not a Robo who is a Cop.

    There’s no way it’s ever going to be half as good as Verhoven’s classic RoboCop, but that doesn’t mean it will suck, either. the trailer was pretty decent to say the least, and the philosophical side of things with the man-trying-to-take-back-his-body-from-the-machine is kinda obvious.

  • mr sinister

    This ‘Robocop’ looks so much better than the overrated original (and the second and 3rd ones). The original would have been better without the lame humor and cheesy moments, and acid/chemical guy at the end (made the whole movie a B movie), stupid.

    Looking forward to this ‘Robocop’, especially looking forward to Michael Keaton, the best Batman and best Bruce Wayne.
