It feels good to be a Robocop fan this week. Not only did the viral start up, giving us the first look at OmniCorp’s line of military robots, but the lords at MGM have blessed us with a plot synopsis. And boy does it sound familiar!
In RoboCop, the year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilizes their remarkable science of robotics to save Alex’s life. He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities, but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.
So essentially, it’s the first movie all over again. While I was hoping for something just a little bit different, I’m still on board with this remake.[via Collider]
