New ROBOCOP Viral Promotes Omnicorp’s RC-2000: “The Next Generation of Defensive Products”

     July 8, 2012


There is a new viral site for the Robocop remake devoted to the diverse product line of Omnicorp, the corporation in the business of making your city safe again.  In the video that greets you when you enter the site, Omnicorp is especially proud of the RC-2000: “Where human resources meets robotic engineering.  The RC-2000: the next generation in defensive products.”  The clip gives you the briefest glimpse of the new design for the RoboCop suit Joel Kinnaman will sport in the new movie.

Hugh Laurie was tapped to play the CEO of Omnicorp, the villain of the film, so Omnicorp is set up to become one of the better evil movie corporations in recent years.  Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, and Abbie Cornish also star in the remake, directed by José Padilha.  Unfortunately, I get an “Access Denied” message when I try to click on too many links at the official site, but I imagine more content will be added in the months leading up to the August 9, 2013 release of Robocop.  Hit the jump to watch the introduction video.

If your security clearance is higher, please explore the Omnicorp site and report back with the details.

Here is a not-terribly-clear snapshot of the RC-2000:

The synopsis for the 1987 original:

Set in Detroit sometime in the near future, the film is about a policeman killed in the line of duty whom the department decides to resurrect as a half-human, half-robot supercop. The RoboCop is indestructible, and within a matter of weeks he has removed crime from the streets of Detroit. However, his human side is tortured by his past, and he wants revenge on the thugs who killed him. [Fandango]

    Looking good, but hopefully the CGI used in the actual film is a little better.

  • BitchesLeave

    ED-209 malfunctions and kills corporate tool causing production to halt and the necessity of the Robocop program. This viral video is all kinds of wrong. But, I dig the slogan. Good grasp of the original’s theme- minus the humor.

    • Grimcicle

      Remember that this is a reimagining, so things are going to be different. Hell, OCP is now “OmniCorp.”

  • mattinacan

    this and total recall really seem to be missing the point of the originals they are ripping off

    • Bob

      You might want to remember that, at least in respect to Total Recall, the original film was in almost no way related to the original source material, a short story by Philip K Dick called “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale”.

      • mattinacan

        agreed, but this new Total Recall movie is a remake of the arnold movie not the book.. and it looks like garbage

  • dogg

    Remaking movies that were pitch perfect to begin with and still hold up well is F@#KING STUPID.

  • ben

    I sure hope they remake Super Troopers next so that hollywood can destroy *all* of the great subversive sci-fi :) Whoopee!!!!!

  • ben

    and wow I totally meant Starship Troopers. No more beer before posting, Ben. I’m pretty sure Super Troopers is safe from a reboot…….. or is it?

  • HumanityHater

    Nope, they are remaking Starship Troopers. Neil Moritz is producing just as he did with Total Recall.

  • tgritz

    While I’m not a massive fan of this constant recycling – there are some truly great films that have come as remakes. Movies that I’m sure many don’t realize are in the same vane as this current trend of reboot/remaking.

    Not to mention, maybe you guys don’t know this, but Total Recall and Starship Troopers were a short story and book before they were films, AND those films weren’t really that close to their subject material – particularly Starship Troopers. I was a fan of the film and chose to read the book after, and really the only comparisons are the war itself and a few character names and locations. So much of that film is different from the book that it almost shouldn’t be called Starship Troopers. So there is definitely room to tweak if you are a fan of either source material.

    I disagree with your opinion about RoboCop. LOL U MAD? Ha, I bet you’re so mad. I can’t imagine any other reaction to someone disagreeing with me, so you MUST be mad. Where’s your precious Hitchcock now, stupidheads? LOL oh I’m so sorry.

    I watched Robocop again on friday, still incredible! usually 80′s movie that have action in them are super cheesy now, but Robocop actually took itself seriously for the most part and had real heart. Also, Peter Weller was incredible, showing so many emotions with only his mouth, and Clarence was a great villain. While this will certainly be better than Robocop 3, there’s something about remakes that just tarnishes the name of the originals, no one gives a f_ck about sequels that are lame, this remake has a big task ahead of it.

    The irony is that Hollywood is the type of careless, corporate OmniCorp that the original Robocop was making fun of. Except, perhaps they didn’t realize it at the time.

    There’s a reason Hollywood cannot willingly make good art. It only happens when the suits are looking in the wrong direction.

    Not this time.

  • Joe

    The thing I love most about the original is the over-the-top violence which is in step with a dystopian future that Paul Verhoeven is so good at depicting – back-to-back with RoboCop and Total Recall.

    What it lacks in spit and polish compared to the advanced cgi these days, 1987′s Robo made up for in heart and soul.

    I doubt it’s gonna be good but ok, let’s give this a chance.
