Sony Pictures and MGM Studios have released a new international trailer for Jose Padilha‘s remake of RoboCop that takes a more somber tone, one that puts the emotional arc of the story first and the explosions second.
The upcoming reboot of Paul Verhoeven‘s 1987 original stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jay Baruchel, Jennifer Ehle and Marianne Jean-Baptiste.
An all-new remake brings home the bad guys on February 12th, 2014.
Take a look at Kinnaman’s RoboCop on the edge of life, with his wife Cornish signing over the rights to his body to Oldman, who only has the best intentions of turning her husband into a half-man/half-robot.
