RoboCop, the crime-fighting cyborg that sci-fi fans first grew to love on the big screen in the 1980s, is back in the long-delayed RoboCop reboot’s first movie trailer.
After a car explosion gruesomely injures police officer Alex Murphy (played by Joel Kinnaman), scientist Dr. Dennett Norton (Gary Oldman) and the villainous OmniCorp CEO Raymond Sellars (Michael Keaton) transform the wounded Murphy into RoboCop.
“This is the future of American justice,” Samuel L. Jackson, who assumes the role of media mogul Pat Novak, says in the trailer. The film also stars Abbie Cornish as Murphy’s wife.
Although the cyborg suit was created to control the human occupant, Murphy’s human emotions begin to override Sellars’ questionable demands.
RoboCop is set in the year 2028, but the flick will hit theaters Feb. 7, 2014.
