The first full trailer for Dredd is online. Karl Urban (Star Trek) plays the lead character in this movie set in a brutal, futuristic city where the police have the right to act as judge, jury, and executioner. The Sylvester Stallone version was very animated, but this looks a lot better. Some of the action sequences look like they will have a related vibe to The Raid, with action taking place in the restricted space of a high-rise tower.
Are you looking forward to seeing this movie in theaters? Dredd is set for release on September 21st.
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.
