(LOS ANGELES) -- RoboCop is back on duty. A remake of the 1987 original is in theaters Wednesday.
Set in the year 2028, RoboCop stars The Killing actor Joel Kinnaman as Detroit cop Alex Murphy. When Murphy is critically injured, a conglomerate transforms him into a new kind of officer: one that is part-man, part-robot. It’s OmniCorp’s goal to install a RoboCop in every city, and make lots of money in the process.
Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish and Jay Baruchel also star in RoboCop, which is screening in IMAX theaters. Rated PG-13.
