Coming to U.S theaters on September 21st (and UK theaters on September 7th) is Dredd 3D, directed by Pete Travis and starring Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby, Wood Harris and Lena Headey. This promises to be darker than the 1995 Sylvester Stallone flick, which I recall was enjoyable, despite having Rob Schneider in it.
Here’s the synopsis…
The future America is an irradiated waste land. On its East Coast, running from Boston to Washington DC, lies Mega City One- a vast, violent metropolis where criminals rule the chaotic streets. The only force of order lies with the urban cops called “Judges” who possess the combined powers of judge, jury and instant executioner. Known and feared throughout the city, Dredd is the ultimate Judge, challenged with ridding the city of its latest scourge – a dangerous drug epidemic that has users of “Slo-Mo” experiencing reality at a fraction of its normal speed.
Here are some trailers and — because the world needs more of these — a motion poster!
