Preorder Now While It's in Theaters. In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and OmniCorp - the world's leader in robot technology - sees a golden opportunity to reap billions for their company. 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, OmniCorp grabs their chance to build a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and will stop at nothing - no matter the cost to Alex - to make sure the program succeeds. But OmniCorp never counted on one thing: there is still a man fighting inside the machine.
