First Trailer for ROBOCOP Remake Starring Joel Kinnaman, Abbie Cornish, and Gary Oldman

Sony Pictures has released the first trailer for director Jose Padilha’s remake of RoboCop.  While it’s already getting plenty of snark from internet grumps, I rather enjoyed this first look at the new film.  Sure, it’s got a bit of a Total Recall or [insert recent sci-fi movie] vibe going on, but there’s plenty here to suggest that the filmmakers will give nods to fans of Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 original while putting their own stamp on the new iteration.  Star Joel Kinnaman looks to be charismatic as Alex Murphy, a trait that he’ll struggle to regain once making his transformation.  There’s plenty of screentime to go around as we also get looks at Samuel L. Jackson’s media mogul, Michael Keaton’s string-pulling CEO and Gary Oldman’s conflicted scientist.  There’s plenty to look forward to, so let’s not lose our collective shit just yet.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer and, while you’re at it, check out these newly-released official images from the film.  The film also stars Abbie Cornish, Jay Baruchel, and Jackie Earle Haley.   RoboCop opens February 7, 2014.

Click over to Apple to watch in HD.  While the trailer does a nice job at setting up the story, it almost gives too much away (ie what happens to Murphy to set him up as RoboCop and where the plot goes from there to what is, presumably, the third act).  As is the case with many trailers these days, a bit of spoilery caution is advised.

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 am the law! No wait..

      surely this movie can’t be as bad as the horrendous DREDD….

      • Kevin

        To be as bad as Dredd, it would have to be really really good.

      • Bob

        Dredd was not horrendous at all. Hate when people say an opinion as fact when your opinion is mostly thought to be wrong in mostly everyone else’s eyes.

      • The_Smirking_Revenge

        No, Dredd was really bad. The plot was so thin, it was transparent. The only part of that movie I actually like was when…SPOILERS…that Lena Headey bitch got tossed out the window. I dug Karl Urban as Dredd, just thought they could’ve made a bitter movie.

      • tertiaryintervention

        What? What the hell? Are you high? The plot was simple not thin. It’s laid out clearly from the beginning. Dredd is a judge. That’s all he is that is all he does. He sees crime he applies justice. MaMa is based on the top floor, he’s on a lower floor and has to make his way up. That is the drive of the story. The characterizations are what filled out the movie.

        I don’t know what broke you that you studied film or that you didn’t study it.

      • Gray

        Thank you for getting here before me – I don’t think this guy quite gets it.. Dredd was excellent. Karl Urban was fantastic and the action was paced and thrilling, not to mention the amount of times people got thrown to the bottom in an increasingly satisfying way. I’m glad the makers of the tower blocks didn’t bother putting safety netting down that chute!

      • Guest

        I haven’t read anywhere here that someone said Karl Urban wasn’t great. Correct me if I am wrong there. I thought he was spot on.
        The movie though, was like putting He-Man on earth…save money.. Stick Dredd in a tower block…save money. Reminded me of an old 80′s arcade platform game.. Up a level, kill someone and work ya way up to the big boss which was the miscast Lena Heady.
        $35 million for a Judge Dredd film?? When studios are churning out Transformer movies like it’s going out of fashion it’s an insult not to give Dredd a proper budget. It was on the back foot before it was even finished!!
        It’ll be harder to get a decent budget now as Dredd did so poorly at the cinema.

      • tertiaryintervention

        There is no one more typical and clueless as you. You should be held up as an example of why Lucas and Spielberg where right. Why hollywood is failing as hard as it has.

        For ONCE we get a plot straight forward enough that it’s NOT full of holes, and you’re so used to Hollywood’s convoluted crap, you don’t even recognize it. SAD.

      • Kevin Carter

        You mean like saying it isn’t horrendous at all….you know, like it’s a fact lol.

      • tertiaryintervention

        It is a fact that Dredd was not horrendous. It is known.

        You know what is horrendous? A man who uses “LOL”

      • Kevin Carter

        In my defense, it was lower case. Don’t exaggerate!!

        Nope – Dredd was awesome!

      • DavidisALLright

        The new Dredd was great!

      • Kevin Carter

        Lol…Ok.Well Dredd was a financial flop… At least hey had the good sense to invest some serious money in this film. $100 million compared to $35m for Dredd.. If Dredd had 2/3 of Robocop’s budget they might have not have had to put most of the movie in a bloody tower block.
        Let’s hope Robocop as a better return.

      Also, does anybody know if there is a Chris Nolan impersonator that i can hire to come to my house, gather my family in the living room, drop his pants and start pissing in my open mouth while yelling “ACTION”? I’d really like that, in fact, i’m pretty sure that it’ll be the best birthday ever! I’m willing to pay $300 cash. $350 if he can make it taste like CORN. ;-) Lulz!

      • jack

        Nolan charges way more than that to pee in mouths

      • Lulz 2 B Had

        It’s amazing that people are so affected by my work they feel the need to imitate me. It means I’ve entered their psyche. It means I’m a part of them now.

      • Lulz 2 Much ;)

        Hahahaahahahaha. You guys suck so badly. This might be the easy site on the entire web to troll. I’ve explained this before: the Nolan piss joke is a lame attempt to stop me from posting. I don’t write it. Another guy does. He pastes it under every comment I make, hoping that the astounding wit will stop me dead in my tracks. It’s hilarious I got to him so badly that he’s devoted a good portion of his life to following me, seeking out my comments and pasting his one note joke beneath them (doing it for nearly a year now– jesus). See what I mean? I own him so completely he practically worships me, hanging off my every word. Christ, why are you all so stupid?

      Dredd was pretty sweet actually! This MUST mean that you have terrible taste therefore rendering your opinion both unnecessary and meaningless. Thank you for trying …… citizen.

        Yes Dredd was pretty entertaining. Just picked up the Blu-ray to show support for it and maybe one day we’ll get another. I’ll wait to pass judgement on the RoboCop remake after I see it. Trailer shows some potential…….

    • calebrcrawford

      It was just a preview, but considering everything I have heard about the production woes of the film, that was a well cut trailer in my opinion. If it’s not for you guys, then it’s not for you… The movie may still suck though, no doubt about it.

      i actually liked the Total recall remake.. of course it wasn’t as good as the original. actually far from it. but it still was a good movie which is unnecessarily hated on. there i said it.

  • Clay

    Putting aside the observation that yet another movie is being remade that didn’t need to be remade, this doesn’t seem half bad.

    • osarumen erhunmwunsee

      how is it stupid? explain

      • Murdoch

        The visuals look like they were trying to copy Elysium, but then ran out of money and said “FUCK IT!”.

      • AlexTheKaiser

        “looks like they were trying to copy Elysium” right, because this movie that began production since 2012 knew how this was going to look like in 3 years.

      • Murdoch

        Crime ridden, crappy, run down future slums with flying cars? I never said they were inspired by Elysium, but they sure as hell were trying to go for the same world that Elysium showed, regardless if they were aware of it or not. And now? their detroit looks like a SciFi channel rip off of Earth from “Elysium”.

      • The_Smirking_Revenge

        Yes. That’s how movies work… That’s why there’s a little thing called “PRE-PRODUCTION.” You think filmmakers don’t spend months trying to get the right look for their films?

      • osarumen erhunmwunsee

        by the time the movies comes out, you will change your mind lool

      • Murdoch

        How much do you want to bet?

      • osarumen erhunmwunsee

        $100 lool

  • http://thenonessentials.blogspot.com/ Sean Chandler

    This would look more interesting to me if it wasn’t called Robocop. …of course in that case I would also be criticizing it for ripping off Robocop. It can’t win.

  • LEM

    It looks pretty bad-ass and I like that they explained the suit change for all the whining fan boys that pre-bashed the movie.

    • Kpaqu1

      The all black armor doesn’t pop on screen as much the silver-y one. But the trailer made it look like it went back and forth with the color scheme.

      • LEM

        I like it but I think the color shift is only because the trailer is out of sequence. I thought there were rumors that the armor would be able to change or be chameleon like but I guess not.

  • Raptor Jesus

    Looks great but they HAVE GOT TO STOP PUTTING ALL THE STORY BEATS IN THE TRAILER.

    Jesus, what are these people, brain-dead? STOP GIVING AWAY THE WHOLE MOVIE.

    • seriously people

      Yeah, stop giving away the most obvious parts of a movie that’s been out since 1987!

      • http://zoelogie.tumblr.com/ Baby Jean

        You know what he meant (e_e)

      • Raptor Jesus

        As the trailer shows it is obviously quite a bit different from the original.

        And that is a very good thing.

  • Far

    Wow that was pretty bad. Looks like an expensive flop for Sony.

  • http://zoelogie.tumblr.com/ Baby Jean

    I’ m liking this, surprisingly. Question though: will he be going back and fourth between silver and black ? Cuz that would be strange…

    • Kpaqu1

      Maybe the black paint gets burned off in battle or something?

      • Kevin Carter

        The silver will be at the start me thinks . You’ll see the original suit as one of the prototypes. Black will be the final colour..

  • Oolie zool

    It doesn’t look bad and I don’t know the story behind Robocop beyond the original movie, but the original’s way of handling his “death” before becoming robocop had far more impact, IMO. Still though, this doesn’t look bad. Like Raptor Jesus said below though, I feel like I’ve pretty much seen the movie now.

  • MoviesAreForever88

    This looks…like complete shit.

    • Jason Richards

      What looks bad about it? Everything looked good to me. The CGI looked decent, the suit looks ok, and the story seems to be more original rather than being a rip off. It might not be as good as the original, but this trailer wasn’t terrible.

      • MoviesAreForever88

        “More original than a ripoff”???

        It’s a remake….what the hell is original about a remake? Have you even seen the original Robo-cop?

      • Kpaqu1

        I think he means that it’s not a carbon copy of the original movie. It has been changed enough to give you multiple unexpected turns.

      • http://thenonessentials.blogspot.com/ Sean Chandler

        My problem with the trailer is that it feels like the film makers don’t understand the themes of the original OR they don’t think audiences are smart enough to pick up on subtly.

        It feels like a heavily neutered and dumbed down version of Robocop. Save a few plot points it removes all of the distinctives of the original.

    • Kevin Carter

      Wow, what bits exactly of the 2mins 20 secs that you watched has ruined the whole movie for ya?

      • MoviesAreForever88

        You mean other than the part where it looks like a made for tv movie?

      • Kevin Carter

        Ooh good comeback. Not really an explanation though…

    This doesn’t look too bad. I was actually entertained all throughout the trailer.

  • adrian

    oh come on guys. it looks fucking awesome and badass

  • dobby

    Well, Dredd did it better. and sadly, it’s as bland as expected. The original Robocop was slow, but a menacing badass with a distinctive movement style because it was real -he had weight he moved like he wieghed a TON!! The CGI jump looks bad and cheap. As for the face? it screams man in a helmet, – Peter Weller unmasked was disturbing and creepy and the stuff of nightmares. Keaton looks like he’s just having a laugh, and it’s odd that Jackson and Oldman have the same quiffy hairstyles. no sense of irony or satire (except to poke fun at the old suit). And he’s burned? Weller was SHOT TO PEICES. I take it back, it’s not bland, it’s crap. ugh!

    • Northern Star

      Man, it would have been so AWESOME if they’d given Jose Padhilla about 70 million bucks and told him to make the best damn Judge Dredd film he could muster… instead of remaking a sacred cow that needed neither sequel nor remake to begin with!

      Don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t look like a BAD film per se (pardon my French as the great Fred Ward quipped in ‘Tremors’), and I’ll give it a watch when it hit television in about five years, but it’s very existence is just so questionable that it really can’t win in the end… the 1987 original is too old for young viewers and the likes of us who grew up with Verhoeven’s masterpiece original are automatically resentful they’re even remaking it!

      I think I’ll give the $13m original a watch again… it’s sure better than this pointless $120m remake! Verhoeven’s was raw and gritty and visceral whereas this one appears so polished and clean and sterile… no freeflow bloodletting, no decapitations or melting villains, no Kurtwood Smith or Ronny Cox or even Paul McCrane… hmm, I think I’ll sit this one out if it’s all the same to you…

      • Kevin Carter

        ok, bye

    • AlexTheKaiser

      The original Robocop isn’t menacing nowadays, it looks like something that came out of a dollar store. Peter Weller also looked like a man in a mask in the original film, just use your brain for once and don’t let nostalgia blind you.

      • http://thenonessentials.blogspot.com/ Sean Chandler

        No it looks like a film that’s 25 years old. That’s not the same thing as looking cheap, and Weller looks WAY creepier in his mask.

  • ZladSupersonik

    Average. But then again, average in a world where RoboCop 3 exists is a step up.

  • jk

    Not bad… I’ll wait and see.

  • Kevin Carter

    I’ve been following the since it was announced. I was even happier to hear that Michael Keaton had a role in it thanks to Hugh Laurie pulling out. And with Sam Jackson and Gary Oldman just adds weight to the movie.
    I know lot’s of people wanted the original suit back up there (there is a nod to it) and I am a huge fan or the original movie, but don’t let that make you shit all over the film before it’s been released.
    I for one will see it on day one!!

    It’s a remake to a classic film, people were going to shit on it regardless. I don’t see any flaws in this trailer. There’s no way you can judge the tone or Kinnaman’s performance from the footage here.

    I’m a huge fan of the original (esp. the Criterion DVD Special Edition), and I thought the movie looked fine. It’s a trailer, so the remake could go either way. Have patience and wait to judge until it comes out.

    Is it just me or do movies look too New these days? You can’t really say this movie has a look.

    • Kpaqu1

      Yeah, all the new action movies have a “slick” look to them. I blame the CGI. Practical effects and props look more real.

  • Nick

    Wow, looked good to me. The trailer sucked… The movie can spend time explaining how it works but the trailer doing it was a poor choice. It looks like a solid, no comedy action thriller. I haven’t seen a good action movie that wasn’t at least 30% comedy in a little while, though with Sammy J in it, it may be accidentally funny. I’m in.

    • junierizzle

      Check out Elysium. I know people didn’t like it because it wasn’t this amazing, social commentary/action/sci-fi flick but it works as a straight up,action movie.

    It looks like a modern telling of the Robocop story and it looks fun … and lets face it so many of the movies we thought were great back in the day are awful by today’s standards … Robocop, terminator, and lots of others were just bad productions all around. They make you cringe when you watch them 20 years later.

    Yay, another ‘grim and gritty’ remake of a good movie. I guess these guys didn’t notice that the original ‘Robocop’ was a satirical comedy, which is what made it good.

    Oh shit! I’m all in bitches!!!!!!
    And I bet it will be better than TDKR!

    I think they should have waited till atleast the end of the movie before giving him the black ranger Fucks Kit and has a baby look

    It’s the black suit that’s putting people off. What I don’t get is why it’s made less robotic than the silver one. It requires no CG to make the black one because his joints are covered. I wish the black suit was just a small part of the movie.

    This movie would really work if Omni corp decides he needs to be less human after testing the black suit and slowly make him more and more robotic and the movie shows him fighting for his humanity every time. So in the end it’s the silver suit with all it’s cool movable parts (and then he goes ‘what did you do to me’) but he’s still Alex Murphy fighting for his life.

    This looks like a disaster… and in a world where people can’t appreciate a good old fashion action movie like Dredd 3D , it’s probably what we deserve.

    I hereby refuse to read any internet hate & will judge for myself. Judging from what Padilla said about his intended updates w/ the current climate of drones & emerging issues of “unmanned” accountability , I’m gonna say this cast looks like they alone could carry an EFX driven vehicle. I’ll assume Sam Jackson is a knowing nod to the media climate satirized in the original , & the addition of Gary Oldman as a doctor character seems solid. As with Peter Weller’s eponymous interview, where he discussed the original in context of recieving a PHD in Art History (w/ it’s elements of social critique, satire, biting commentary woven into a legitimate tongue-in-cheek action vehicle) I’ll say this looks decent. But – “GOOD LUCK TRYING”.

    My love of the original considered, I don’t think this is as bad as everyone was expecting it to be. The human hand also adds to it. It may well be a decent reboot, if not anything else. And for everyone whining about the suit, remember that in the 80′s, people had a different, more mechanical vision of what Detroit of 2028 would be than we do. We have come to the point of being able to expect near-organic machines when it comes to movement.
    Also, please don’t compare it to Dredd. Dredd is just too epic for a reboot.
