Where did you watch this movie?

In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center 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.

Trivia:
Top 10 'Robocop' quotes: 1. "Dead or alive, you're coming with me!" 2. "I'd buy that for a dollar!" 3. "Your move, creep." 4. "Come quietly or there will be… trouble." 5. "Your client's a scumbag, you're a scumbag, and scumbags see the judge on Monday morning. Now get out of my office, and take laughing boy with you!" 6. "My friends call me Murphy. You call me... Robocop." 7. "Excuse me, I have to go. Somewhere there is a crime happening." 8. "Old Detroit has a cancer. That cancer is crime." 9. "Bad language makes for bad feelings." 10. "These days, neighborhoods just seem to be the sort of places where bad things happen. Don't be nostalgic."

Jackie Earle Haley as Rick Maddox at one point says 'I wouldn't buy that for a dollar'. This is a reworking of a line in the original 1987 film during a fake advertisement with the catchphrase 'I'd buy that for a dollar'.

Nick Schenk and James Vanderbilt are among the few uncredited writers who have entirely rewritten Joshua Zetumer's screenplay.

During production of the film, director José Padilha phoned friend and fellow Brazilian director Fernando Meirelles to confide in him his frustration in the lack of creative control he was allowed by the studio for the project. Padilha estimated that for every ten ideas he brought to the project, the studio refused nine, and went on to the describe the making of the film as "The worst experience of [his] life". When word of this conversation became public, in an effort to appease the studio Padilha released counter statements expressing satisfaction with the film.

Michael Keaton and Gary Oldman both starred in the "Batman" film franchise. Michael Keaton played Bruce Wayne/Batman in Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992) and Gary Oldman played Commissioner Jim Gordon in Christopher Nolan's "Batman" trilogy.

According to Brazilian director Fernando Meirelles, José Padilha called to him during production to admit he was having "the worst experience of his life" and "for every ten ideas he has, nine are cut. The film will be good, but I have never suffered so much and I do not want to do it again."

When Sellars (Michael Keaton) is reviewing the draft design for the robosuit, the design displayed is the suit from RoboCop (1987). Sellars then requests that the design be "more tactical" and "black", resulting in the updated design for this film.

RoboCop's first directive was inspired by a fortune cookie: Serve the public interest.

Michael Fassbender, Matthias Schoenaerts and Russell Crowe were considered to play RoboCop.

Darren Aronofsky was rumoured to direct at one point.

Hugh Laurie was in talks to play the role of Raymond Sellars, but contract negotiations broke down between him and the film producers. Clive Owen was seriously considered as a replacement, before Michael Keaton was cast.

Edward Norton turned down the role of Norton.

Sean Penn turned down the role of Novak.

Gael García Bernal, Alexander Skarsgard and Logan Marshall-Green were considered for the role that went to Michael K Williams.

Rebecca Hall turned down the role of Ellen Murphy, while Jessica Alba, Keri Russell and Kate Mara auditioned.

Miguel Ferrer, Vallon in this reboot, was also in the original RoboCop as OCP Executive Robert Morton. He gave the order to remove Murphy's other arm.
