This feature tells the behind the scenes story of the design of the suit for the re-booted RoboCop (2014).
The story is much the same… When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) a good cop is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer… but the special effects are something else.
RoboCop (2014) – Official Information
In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years – and it’s meant billions for OmniCorp’s bottom line.
Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it. When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) – a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit – is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer.
OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the machine pursuing justice.
Cast includes Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish and Samuel L Jackson.
Directed by José Padilha with a screenplay by Joshua Zetumer based on the 1987 screenplay by Edward Neumeier and Michael Miner.
