Robocop (30-Jan-2014)

Director: Josť Padilha

Writer: Joshua Zetumer

Keywords: Sci-Fi, Robots

Remake of the 1987 film of the same name tells the tale of a near-future Detroit cop's transformation into a crime-exterminating cyborg.

ABSTRACT
Remake of Robocop (1987). It's 2028 in Detroit, Michigan. Once a proud notch in the belt of industrial America, crime and poverty besieged the Motor City and left it a ruinous hellscape fit only for the hardiest of souls. Enter OmniCorp, a private defense contractor worth billions thanks to their drone technology and determined to strike once more with their half-human, half-robot "lawman of the future" concept, known as "Robocop". Transforming critically-injured police officer Alex Murphy into the first of a planned long line of big-city crime-stopping heroes, OmniCorp's plans run into violent trouble when they fail to account for the human element still active inside their quasi-humanoid machine.
