Ready to serve and protect like never before, the future of law enforcement blasts his way back onto our screens in a definitive 4K restoration – uncut and approved by Paul Verhoeven.

RoboCop marked director Paul Verhoeven’s Hollywood debut and instantly became an enduring sci-fi/action classic when it landed in cinemas in the summer of 1987.

The film takes place in Detroit in the not-too-distant future. Heroic cop Alex Murphy (Peter Weller) is gunned down in the line of duty, only to be resurrected as RoboCop – a cybernetic mix of spare human parts and Motor City steel, and the latest defense against crime designed by the all-powerful OCP Corporation.

As RoboCop’s memories of his former life as Murphy resurface, only his ex-partner (Nancy Allen) stands beside him to fight against the vicious thugs responsible for his death, as well as a nefarious top-level OCP executive orchestrating the chaos from above.

Unsurpassably thrilling, unexpectedly moving and unforgettably hilarious in equal measure, the future of law enforcement is back in a definitive 4K restoration.
