Following yesterday's poster reveal, today we have the first plot synopsis for RoboCop, directed by José Padilha. We know that Joel Kinnaman stars as Detroit cop Alex Murphy, although we haven't had a thorough rundown of the story until now. Check it out.

"In RoboCop, the year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center 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 utilizes 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. RELATED: Labyrinth Mini Epics Figures Unveiled by Weta Workshop

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 (Marvel's The Avengers) as media mogul Pat Novak."
