The first official RoboCop trailer has hit the internet.
The movie, which was mostly filmed in Toronto, is a reboot of the classic 1987 cult film with Peter Weller about a human-robot policeman patrolling a futuristic Detroit.
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 opens in theaters on February 7, 2014.
The Motor City knows RoboCop all too well. In 2011, a firestorm erupted after a social networking campaign exploded in support of erecting a statue of the fictional crime-fighting cyborg in the city, quickly raising $50,000 to make it happen.
