Sony Pictures has released a new viral video for director Jose Padilha’s upcoming RoboCop remake by way of a CES Keynote Presentation from OminCorp in the year 2027.  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 things don’t go as planned.  This viral video teases OmniCorp’s development of the RoboCop, but it’s done in a haphazard manner that just feels like a cheap ripoff of the excellent Prometheus TED Talk viral that featured Guy Pearce.

Hit the jump to watch the new viral video as well as a batch of new high-resolution images.  The film also stars Gary OldmanMichael KeatonJackie Earle HaleyMichael K. WilliamsJennifer EhleJay BaruchelMarianne Jean-Baptiste, and Samuel L. Jackson.  RoboCop opens 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.

    Thank God the teleprompter didn’t malfunction.

    wow, now that´s bad acting!

    Wait, is that the dude from Modern Family? The gay brother? This just makes the film look even worse and more unappealing than it was before. I appreciate the effort but the execution was just bad. They should have stuck to hammy w intentional bad acting (like the original 80′s flick did w their fake promos) and not actual bad acting and it would have worked better.

      Nope that’s not Jesse rattler ferguson. Just someone who looks like him

    If the point of this video was make me fall asleep by endless speech and miss the horrendous looking footage of a remake that was made to sell the toys, it worked!

    Fucking Prometheus made it right with Guy Pearce. This…. Just a fucking Bullshit and movie is bullshit because script that I’ve read is Bullshit. Producers are fucking Bullshit.

    People who made a suit that needs CGi improvement to look good and still looks much worse than No-CGI suit from 80′s – are also Bullshit.

    P.S. Fucking Bullshit.

    Anyone who thinks this movie is going to be an “intelligent” and “many-layered examination of the human spirit ought to think again. That un-gloved hand tells you right there this movie’s message is going to be as subtle as a brick to the face.

    I think viral videos are about as useful as Michael Bay on the set of 12 Years A Slave.

  • The Flobbit

    ROBOCOP because: Jackie Earle Haley.

  • Al Conyado

    I take it from the “was” when reffering to Michael Keaton’s character that he dies as well? The acting ain’t bad it’s about on par with most actual presentations I’ve seen except for the giant holographic projection and fancy beard

  • Jonboy

    What was the point of that? It’s like someone saw the Ted promo for Prometheus and thought it has to be done for Robocop. It makes the trailer look much better.

    My fantasy is where the scene in the fourth image comes after the fifth image cuz he looks badass in the fourth one.
