The upcoming remake of Robocop just released its first bit of teaser footage in the form of a viral video spotlighting the robotic military hardware of OmniCorp.
The video introduces us to a futuristic world where corporate-owned flying drones patrol cities, and the iconic walking tank-killer, ED-209 walks the streets. However, we are given some brief glimpses of a new streamlined (and CGI) Robocop, introduced as the RC-2000, "where human resources meets robotic engineering."

Similar to the way recent viral videos for Prometheus served to establish a broader context to the film itself before its release, Brazilian director José Padilha's big-budget North American debut, while full of the cybernetic bells and whistles of conventional sci-fi/action films, also seems to be establishing its own bit of futuristic dystopianism into which new Robocop, Joel Kinnaman will be thrust.
Robocop is set to hit theaters on August 9, 2013.
