MGM and Sony have given us a glimpse of 2014’s first tentpole, unveiling the first trailer for the remake of “RoboCop.”

Pic stars Joel Kinnaman, Abbie Cornish, Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Keaton with Jose Padilha directing.

The reboot is set in 2028 Detroit where multinational conglomerate OMNICORP turns Alex Murphy, a critically injured cop, into a part man, part machine crime-fighting figure.

The trailer already hints to the original, including a new suit and the fact that Murphy is still alive when he undergoes the transformation. In the 1987 original, he is revived after the procedure.
