Sony Pictures originally scheduled the new RoboCop for release on August 9 2013, but it will now open on February 7 2014 – some six months later than originally planned. Its place on the release slates has been taken by Elysium, a new sci-fi thriller from director Neill Blomkamp, which stars Matt Damon and Jodie Foster.

The new RoboCop has an estimated budget of $100 million (£61 million) – more than seven times the $13 million (£8 million) cost of the original film. The script has been written by Josh Zetumer and Nick Schenk based on the original 1987 film starring Peter Weller (pictured right).

The remake is set in 2028 and takes place in a world where a multinational called OmniCorp is dominating robot technology. The official plot summary synopsis runs as follows: “Alex Murphy (Kinnaman) 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 utilises 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.”
