News: RoboCop Remake Has New Viral Site

The first viral site for the RoboCop remake has hit the glorious worldwide web courtesy of  OmniCorp. OmniCorp seems to be a rebranded version of Omni Consumer Products (OCP), the giant global mega-corporation from the original film that took Officer Murphy and created RoboCop. The site gives a sneak peek of OmniCorp’s shiny new products – including the familiar looking ED-209 above.

Paul Verhoeven’s RoboCop was a vicious satire of eighties culture and our obsessions and fears at the time. It appears director Jose Padhila’s version will take jabs at similar themes in whatever we’re calling this decade. There are great concerns about Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, or drones, being used in combat now. The XT-908 above is one such vehicle. They watch over cities, and coupled with facial recognition software, they have the capability to take out targets (criminals, citizens, or people you just don’t like) at zero risk. Will Padhila touch upon this potential threat to our civil liberties?

Best of all, though, is this video showing OmniCorp’s ED-209 and XT-908 in action. Why? Because it teases our first look at RoboCop himself. Can they possibly out do the original? We’ll have to wait and see. Let me know what you think down below.

RoboCop, starring Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson and Hugh Laurie, is due to be released on the 9th August 2013.
