If you’re one of the many who’ve been dreading the Robocop remake, you may want to take a step back from the robo-bashing for just a couple of minutes.
The first trailer for Jose Padilha’s movie has been released and it’s a pretty promising glimpse of what’s yet to come. Yes the reboot is completely unnecessary and yes, it won’t have Peter Weller as our favourite part-man, part-robot, but with Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton and Gary Oldman as backup, it looks like an action filled ride worth watching. It doesn’t appear to be a straight copy of the original either, which could be what makes the film succeed when it’s released in 2014.
It’s safe to say that this won’t please hardcore fans of the 80s classic but this is one reboot we can’t wait to see on the big screen.
