Film Trailers: ROBOCOP (2014)

     The new trailer for the remake of RoboCop has dropped and, minus a decent supporting cast, the film looks like another unnecessary remake coming out of an over bloated Hollywood studio. The film stars Joel Kinnaman as the cop who becomes half-machine, half-man, after suffering a near death catastrophe. His delivery, at least in the trailer, seems very flat and dull. I am not expecting much from him or this film, even though the director, Jose Padilha, who directed the well-made Elite Squad and Elite Squad: The Enemy Within, has got the talent to hopefully pull it off. The cast includes Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, Jay Baruchel, Jackie Earle Haley and Michael K. Williams. There is no way this film will live up to the original RoboCop (1987) starring Peter Weller and directed by Peter Verhoeven. We will see what happens to the crime-ridden, futuristic Detroit on February 7, 2014.
