Check out this great new graffiti-style billboard design for Pete Travis and Karl Urban‘s ultra violent film Dredd 3D, based on the Judge Dredd comic book. Thanks to Collider.
I was able to catch the screening for the film up at Comic-Con this year, and I think you’re going to like what you see. It was bloody hardcore, and I’m looking forward to seeing it again. There’s just a ridiculous amount of blood and violence. I think I might actually like it more the second time around.
The movie hits theaters on September 21st, and if you want, you can watch Ben and I talk about the movie in our video review here. Hopefully it does well at the box office so we get to see a sequel! I would love to see Urban back in the helmet as Dredd!
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 (Karl Urban) 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.
During a routine day on the job, Dredd is assigned to train and evaluate Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), a rookie with powerful psychic abilities thanks to a genetic mutation. A heinous crime calls them to a neighborhood where fellow Judges rarely dare to venture- a 200 story vertical slum controlled by prostitute turned drug lord Ma-Ma (Lena Headey) and her ruthless clan. When they capture one of the clan’s inner circle, Ma-Ma overtakes the compound’s control center and wages a dirty, vicious war against the Judges that proves she will stop at nothing to protect her empire. With the body count climbing and no way out, Dredd and Anderson must confront the odds and engage in the relentless battle for their survival.
