"Your move, creep."

Have your First Look at the Future of Law Enforcement with the release of the first trailer of RoboCop, the upcoming reboot of the 1987 sci-fi classic of the same name

Earlier last year, we first took an all-too-brief first look at Brazilian film-maker José Padilha's take on the 1987 Paul Verhoeven sci-fi classic, RoboCop with the unveiling of the official synopsis as well as some viral campaign promotional art from the film. Later on, we had a close-up look at the armors of Joel Kinaman's take on the iconic character with the leaked images of the film directed by the Brazilian film-maker who earlier on brought us The Elite Squad, the critically acclaimed Brazilian film and its even more acclaimed sequel The Elite Squad 2 - The Enemy Within. So here we are now as MGM and Columbia Pictures release the first trailer and poster for the film.

Without further ado, hit the jump to check out the new and (hopefully) improved Future of Law Enforcement.

For an in-depth look into the film, check out the interview with director José Padilha over at Hero Complex where the Brazilian film-maker gave an intriguing account behind the making of the film. Among many of the questions answered, here's one behind the origin of the reboot.

Question: What drew you to this project? Are you a “RoboCop” fan?

Answer: Oh, totally. I actually went to MGM to have a meeting about something else, and I saw the “RoboCop” poster. And they said, “You know what? Let’s do this.” … They asked me, “So what’s your take on it?” And I actually had a take (which is the premise of the current movie), which is we’re in the future, and drones have been replaced by robots and are being used all over the world for foreign policy and war. Kind of like instead of sending soldiers to Iraq, you send robots to Tehran. This is how we open the movie, with American robots in Tehran, because Iran has been invaded. The idea is, now soldiers don’t die in wars, so there’s no political pressure at home toend wars. Because the reason why the Vietnam War ended is because soldiers were dying. When you take the soldiers away and you have robots, that opens a can of worms. The premise of the movie is everywhere in the world, robots are allowed, except in America, because Americans won’t accept that a robot can pull the trigger, that the robot can decide to take or not to take a person’s life in law enforcement. So this company is losing lots of money because it can’t sell robots in North America, so the solution is, “Let’s put a man in the machine and sell that.” That was the premise of the movie that I said to them in the very first day, and because they wanted to do it, that’s why I’m here.

And here are some of the recently-unveiled official set images.

Concept art for the film released some time back.

Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

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.

Starring Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, Jay Brauchel, Jackie Earle Haley, and Samuel L. Jackson, RoboCop is scheduled to open on February 7, 2014.
