Today is the day! Sony has finally released the first full-length trailer for the upcoming RoboCop remake. The new trailer gives us a better idea about the film’s story, which is definitely different from Paul Verhoeven’s original 1987 film.
The trailer starts off with the character Pat Novak (Samuel L. Jackson), host of The Novak Element and a big supporter of mechanized crime control. Novak tells his audiences that robots and drones are used in every city around the world, and the result is a very low crime rate. That same technology could be brought to the United States, but for some reason, Americans are “robophobic.” It’s clear that the tone is not as gritty or dark as Paul Verhoeven’s original, but it looks like there’s enough action to make for a fun movie.
