What do you expect from the upcoming RoboCop
? A lot of action from the iconic cyborg police officer – hope that’s the right answer? Well, one thing is for sure, until that action (read: trailer) arrives, folks from OmniCorp.com
will (obviously) continue with their products videos and promo images, because, hey – they want you to know that the future is under control
! Head inside to see what we’re talking about…
For example, their XT-908
, delivers clear skies range of 45 continuous hours and 4,256 miles, with an operational altitude of over 55,000 ft. It can be armed with a variety of weaponry, including tactical micro-missiles and 50-lb laser-guided surgical bomb units for pre-emptive “restraint” strikes.
, on the other hand, operates as evidence recorder, analyzer and transmitter. Armed with full media capability – 360 infrasonic cameras and audio targeting – and real time backup ensures operational security.
Let’s not forget EM-208
, which offers operational flexibility across ecosystems, with auto temperature regulation and self-“healing” functionality. It also offers the full media suite: 360 infrasonic cameras, audio targeting, and real-time backup.
Then, they also have C-1
which maxes out at 248 mph (397 km/hr.) but recommends sub-200 mph for optimal handling. Its liquid-hydrogen cooled 16-valve engine and 6-speed transmission system generates 197 horsepower with fluid mesh.
Last, but not least – NI-408
, the Hyper-touch trigger restricts and releases per the intentionality level applied by the triggerman. Finger “scales” measure and confirm ID prior to unlocking the charge.
Now, when it comes to Jose Padilha
‘s upcoming reboot, you already had a chance to check out some pretty cool set pics
with Joel Kinnaman
aka Alex Murphy, a fatally wounded cop who returns to the force as a powerful cyborg with submerged memories haunting him.
Kinnaman previously revealed that Padilha has a completely different take on this than Verhoeven had, and added:
…with all respect, everybody that’s involved in this movie loved the original and we have a lot of respect for it. We’re going to have a lot of throwbacks and there’s going to be a lot of fun stuff for the fans of the first movie. It’s a new story within the old one.
Now, in a fresh interview with Metro
, Kinnaman explaines:
It was a great experience. Half of my scenes were with Gary Oldman, which was a dream come true. The director didn’t want to make a superhero movie – we made an action tragedy. It’s going to be a sad and exciting story with quite a bit of drama….The movie will surprise people.
Are we ready for that surprise? (we definitely are!)
Anyway, let us once again remind you that, beside Kinnaman, the rest of RoboCop
cast includes Gary Oldman
, Michael Keaton
, Samuel L. Jackson
, Abbie Cornish
, Jackie Earle Haley
, Michael K. Williams
, Jay Baruchel
, Jennifer Ehle
, Marianne Jean-Baptiste
, and the movie is set to hit theaters on February 7th, 2014.
Stay tuned for more updates!
