On the big screen: Robocop

Starring: Abbie Cornish, Douglas Urbanski and Joel Kinnaman Directed by: José Padilha

In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the centre of robot technology.

Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years – and it’s meant billions for OmniCorp’s bottom line.

Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it.

When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) – a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit – is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer.

OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the machine pursuing justice.

Robocop opens in cinemas today.
