The first trailer for MGM’s Robocop reboot makes it clear that there is one big change at the most basic level of the story – from the moment he wakes up in his new form, Detective Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) knows exactly who he is. So the movie isn’t just a gussied up retread, it’s exploring some serious metaphysical ideas – under the cool new Robocop armor and explosions and stuff. I guess we won’t know if it’s as much a lacerating satire as the original until it opens. Robocop also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, and Abbie Cornish.
Check out the trailer after the jump. Robocop opens February 7, 2014.
