‘Robocop’ marketing kicks off

Jose Padilha’s remake of the 1987 sci-fi classic Robocop won’t hit theatres until August 2013, but Sony (perhaps taking a page from Prometheus) is already teasing audiences with a promo spot for the fictional Omnicorp.

In case you really want to geek out, Omni (or OCP) was the name of the company in the original that created Robocop.

Since the movie hasn’t begun filming yet, we don’t get to see any actual film footage. But viewers are treated to a glimpse of what Robocop’s suit might look like. We also get to see Robocop’s nemesis from the first movie – the ED-209.

The clip closes with Omni touting their upcoming mechanical revolution “where human resources meets robotic engineering.”

Robocop stars Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) in the title role and also features Gary Oldman and Samuel L. Jackson. Check out the ad and let us know your comments below.

    Sure Peter Weller is still sobbing over the fact they wouldn’t recast him.
