New 'Robocop' trailer: When Samuel L. Jackson speaks, you listen

Posted on

Robocop Trailer

What should a highly-advanced society fear more — a zombie that once was human, or a robot that’s part man?

A reboot of the 1987 original starring Peter Weller, the newest trailer for RoboCop begins with director José Padilha comparing the “automated violence” of the earlier film to our current use of  drones and bots in warfare. The OmniCorp CEO, played by Michael Keaton, wants to bring robot-law enforcers to the streets. But they’ll need someone to wear the robotic armor. That’s where good cop, Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) comes in as the RoboCop. Some highlights? The commanding presence of Samuel L. Jackson (sporting some serious Al Sharpton hair), who’s booming voice delivers the pro-robot sermon. The cast also boasts Gary Oldman, Abbie Cornish, and Jackie Earle Haley.

What do you guys think of the new RoboCop? Watch the new trailer below.

RoboCop charges into theaters on Feb. 12, 2014.
