Slated for 2014, and 27 years after the original was released, the world is getting a new action packed treat with the re-imagined story of RoboCop by Brazilian director José Padilha. RoboCop will open in IMAX® theatres worldwide beginning February 7.
The stage for this revitalization is Detroit, and the year is 2028. The fiendish international weapons manufacturing conglomerate OmniCorp finds Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) – a hard-working, run-of-the-mill police officer – critically injured. They seize the opportunity to create a prototype for their futuristic, weaponized cyborg RoboCop. OmniCorp envisions fattening their wallets by putting a RoboCop in every major city in the world, but will their justice-seeking, man/machine hybrid, fulfill their expectations, and will he play along?
The star-studded cast includes Joel Kinnaman (The Killing), Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton and THE ONE, THE ONLY Samuel L. Jackson. Check back on the Blog @ IMAX for more RoboCop news.
