With the release of Dredd 3D
creeping up on us, Lionsgate has released a new poster to get people in the mood for the gritty, apocalyptic comic adaptation. The poster features Karl Urban
set against a backdrop of a burnt-out Mega-City One. We doubt tourist boards are going to be running this one any time soon.
Dredd 3D takes place in a violent, futuristic city where police have the authority to take down criminals by any means necessary. Enter Judge Dredd. He is tasked with the unenviable goal of ridding the city of a dangerous drug epidemic known as Slo-Mo, a drug which causes users to experience reality at a fraction of its normal speed. Dredd teams up with rookie Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby
) to enter drug lord Ma-Ma’s (Lena Headey
) territory and put an end to the supply.
Dredd 3D will be released on September 7th in Europe and on September 21st in North America. If you missed Jack and Daniel dissecting the trailer, it is available below. Be warned: there is plenty of blood shed over the course of the trailer.
