After two rather more uptempo trailers selling the familiar tale of “RoboCop” in a slick new package, a fresh international spot takes a more mournful tone, one that puts the emotional arc of the story first and the explosions second. And oh yeah, it features lots of new footage too.
But before you get to see Joel Kinnaman‘s RoboCop delivering RoboJustice, we first see him on the edge of life, with his wife Abbie Cornish signing over the rights to his body to Gary Oldman, who of course only has the best intentions of turning her husband into a half-man/half-robot. “What kind of suit of this?” Alex Murphy asks, while the unasked question seems to be, “What kind of life if this?” Heavy stuff, right? Well don’t worry because is plenty of action along the way too.
“RoboCop” brings home the bad guys on February 12, 2014.
