A trailer for the remake of the 1987 sci-fi classic "RoboCop" has hit the web, offering a look at Joel Kinnaman (AMC's "The Killing") replacing Peter Weller as Murphy, a badly injured cop who wakes up from surgery transformed into a peace-keeping cyborg.

You'll notice an eclectic cast of supporting actors, including Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman and Michael Keaton, plus Abby Cornish as Murphy's wife. Brazilian filmmaker José Padilha (the gripping documentary "Bus 174") replaces Dutch director Paul Verhoeven.

"RoboCop" is scheduled for release through MGM and Columbia on Feb. 7, 2014.
