First Trailer for DREDD

Here is the first trailer for Dredd starring Karl Urban in the title role.  There is a lot of speed-ramping and slow motion here that might be the ingredients needed to save this movie.  I’m sorry I just don’t know why this is getting a reboot.

The 1995 Sylvester Stallone version was terrible sure, but even that it wasn’t really something people were begging for.  So yes, this version looks a lot better, so there’s that.

Dredd opens in 3D on September 21st.

Dredd takes place on a fictional Earth created as a result of the Atomic Wars. Survivors are living in Mega-Cities, which protects its citizens from the Cursed Earth, a radioactive desert environment populated by mutants. The main story takes place in Mega-City One, where the police who are now called judges have the power to use police brutality to some extent to fight extreme murders. One man, Judge Dredd (Karl Urban), a senior law enforcement officer, teams up with a cadet called Judge Anderson (Olivia Thirlby) to track down a terrorist organization lead by Ma-Ma (Lena Headey), who is responsible for selling a reality-altering drug called Slo-Mo.
