Following word earlier this week of the George Clooney film’s delay, Sony Pictures and Fox’s The Monuments Men has officially been moved to a February 7, 2014 release. As a result, Sony and MGM’s RoboCop reboot has been pushed back five days and will now see release on February 12, 2014.
In the film, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy (Kinnaman) is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilizes their remarkable science of robotics to save Alex’s life. He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities, but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.
Featuring an ensemble cast that includes Joel Kinnaman, Abbie Cornish, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jay Baruchel, Jennifer Ehle, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste, RoboCop is directed by Jose Padilha.
