In 2028, multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the centre of robotic technology. Its drones have been used overseas by the military for years, generating billions for OmniCorp’s bottom line. Now OmniCorp wants to bring its controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it when loving husband, father and good cop Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) is critically injured in the line of duty. Turning him into part-man, part-robot police officer Robocop, Omnicorp sees big plans ahead for its creation. But they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the machine pursuing justice. Alongside the high-definition version of the movie, Robocop on Blu-ray also includes several deleted scenes and three making-of featurettes.

So this week, we want to talk remakes or sequels to classic 80s movies. Which films or characters would you like to see return to the big screen, and why? Could anyone ever step into Michael J.
