Synopsis: 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.

And we're on

in four, three,

two, one.

What if I told you that even the

worst neighborhood in America

could be made

completely safe.

And what if I told you that

this could be accomplished

without risking the life

of one single

law enforcement officer.

How do I know this?

Because it's happening

right now

in every country

in the world

but this one.

I'm Pat Novak, and welcome

to The Novak Element.

In tonight's

State of the Union segment

we'll be joined

by General Curtis Monroe

live from the War Room

in the Pentagon.

General Monroe,

welcome back.

Good to see you, Pat.

Thank you for this unprecedented

access to your operations.

Could you walk us through

what we're seeing here?

Well, this is

a routine operation.

We found that

random patrols

helped the local population to

feel safer and to trust us.

It's amazing.

And what are

these colored dots

that we're seeing here,


These are our assets

on the ground.

In green,

we got the ED-209s.

They're the big boys.

They secure the perimeter.

Purple are

the smaller EM-208s.

They sweep and mop up.

And the red dots, Pat,

that's your film crew.

It is great to see

American machines

helping to promote

peace and freedom abroad.

All right, you guys, this is

a standard op, all right?

There's no

opposition expected.

I'm gonna set your markers

to code red.

All our drones are gonna give

top priority to your safety.

No red assets

have ever been lost.



Does that

make you feel better?

But, listen,

keep those bracelets on,

you're completely safe.


Good. Enjoy the show.

All right. Let's go.

May peace

be upon you.

Please exit your homes

with your arms raised

for a noninvasive

scanning procedure.

No one will be harmed.

Please exit your homes

with your arms raised

for a noninvasive

scanning procedure.

No one will be harmed.

Scott, get me

a shot of this.

Your cooperation

is appreciated.

We apologize

for any inconvenience.

May peace be upon you.



Not long ago, that would have

been American men and women

risking their lives

to pacify these people.

General, you care

to comment on this?

Well, Pat,

we had Vietnam,

we had Iraq,

we had Afghanistan.

Never again.

From a military perspective,

this has been invaluable.

We can accomplish

our objectives

without any loss

to American lives

and I think the honest people

over there really appreciate it.

And why wouldn't they?

For the first time

in their lives

they get to watch

their children grow up

in an environment

of safety and security.


Get away from the window!

Mom! They're here! They're coming!

Come here! Come here right now!


Navid! You stay with your mom and sisters!

But he's just a kid.


Stay here with your mom and the kids!

What do you think you're doing?

You heard me!

Arash, please don't go! Don't do this!

Navid! My dear! Come back here!


Shut the door!

We're not here to kill any of them.

Got it?

The goal is to die on television.

Let's go!


Can you hear me out there?

Loud and clear, Pat.

I'm here in sunny Tehran

where locals have clearly

embraced these routine scans.

As you can see behind me,

they're working

in collaboration

with the robots

and obviously their safety

is everyone's top priority.

Don't make a move before I say...

I wanna make sure they're recording.


Yes! Yes!

We're ready.

You'll notice children

in the streets as well.

This is everyday life

happening in perfect harmony.

Oh, great.

Here, come here.

Stay put,

stay put, stay put.
