Dredd: First Trailer & Poster

Posted by Grey Thursday, June 21, 2012

Set to open in 3D on September 21st, we take a look at Dredd, the upcoming live-action adaptation of the beloved 2000 AD character.

We have earlier took a good look at Dredd, Hollywood's second attempt in adapting Judge Dredd, the iconic UK's comic hero who happened to be quite likely the most beloved too, coming from the pages of 2000 AD.

With British film-maker Pete Travis (director of 2008's Vantage Point) at helm and a script from Alex Garland, the renowned writer who brought us gems like 28 Days Later and Sunshine, Dredd is shaping up to be a good distance away from the 1995 take on Judge Dredd that was directed by Danny Cannon and starring Sylvester Stallone as the eponymous character (the less we talk about that farce the better).

With the release of the first trailer of the film, this notion is further enhanced with no indication of farcical camp in the intense clip. With no further ado, hit the jump to check out the top lawman in Mega-City One in action.

And here some new recently-released official images from the film.

Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

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.

The endlessly inventive mind of writer Alex Garland and director Pete Travis bring DREDD to life as a futuristic neo-noir action film. Filmed in 3D with stunning slow motion photography sequences, the film returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra’s revered comic strip.

Dredd is currently scheduled to be released on 21 September, 2012, in 3-D.
