In the midst of an impressive if gruelling Oscar Contender Season – The Butler (sobering!), Philomena (upsetting!), Mandela (intense!) – an early taste of next year's Blockbuster Season is most welcome.
We're referring to the new RoBocop trailer, an impending remake of the 80s classic that is, in all but name, RoBocop: Reboot.
Starring Joel Kinnaman as the cop critically injured then turned into man-machine, it also stars Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton and, of course, Samuel L. Jackson.
Judging by this clip it'll be heavy on action (not to mention, for those of us of a certain age, nostalgia) and light on story, character and poignant social commentary.
Which – just like a few hours of July sunshine – sounds pretty much perfect right about now.
