Ok, so it's not the most dynamic of one-sheets, but we thought it was worthy of your attention regardless. (Unless it turns out to be a fake and we've wasted your time of course.) Here's the poster that's currently doing the rumour rounds on the internets...


Here's the newly released Official Synopsis that fills us in on what to expect...

In RoboCop, the year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the centre 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 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 utilises 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.

Director José Padilha (Elite Squad) reimagines the tale of part man, part machine, all cop starring Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) as the title character, Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises) as the scientist who creates RoboCop, and Samuel L. Jackson (The Avengers) as media mogul Pat Novak.

RoboCop is being produced by Strike Entertainment's Marc Abraham and Eric Newman, with Eric Carraro as Executive Producer. The film is in pre-production and slated for a summer 2013 release.

And for those that missed it last week, here's that excellent first viral vid again, featuring our first look at the new ED-209. We're quickly coming around to the idea of this the more we see...
