The first clip from Jose Padilha’s RoboCop reboot has arrived, and it finds the new-and-improved Alex Murphy showing off his skills against an entire building full of robo-drones.
The “Field Test” footage builds on a positively awesome scene we’ve already peeked at in the trailer, but shows off more of RoboCop’s prowess as he takes out dozens of robot drones in a positively epic show of force. If nothing else, this one looks to be loaded with some nice set pieces.
Where the recent trailers have tried to focus on the mix of wit and story, this clip goes a long way in showing that the flick (hopefully) won't skimp on the action chops. It seems Padilha might’ve figured out a way to strike that perfect '80s-ish balance between camp and seriousness, although it'll be hard to top Verhoeven in that regard. Fingers crossed.
