Judgement time! Lionsgate has finally unveiled the first kick ass trailer for Dredd, the new 2012 take on 2000 AD comic book character Judge Dredd, played by Kiwi actor Karl Urban in this one. He takes on the hardened criminals of Mega City with guns, guns and more guns, and it looks totally badass. The cast includes Olivia Thirlby as Judge Cassandra Anderson, and Lena Headey as Madeline 'Ma-Ma' Madrigal. This is a spectacular trailer, showing us how fantastic this sci-fi actioner might be.

Plot: Dredd takes us to the wild streets of Mega City One, the lone oasis of quasi-civilization on Cursed Earth. Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) is the most feared of elite Street Judges, with the power to enforce the law, sentence offenders and execute them on the spot – if necessary. The endlessly inventive mind of writer Alex Garland and the frenetic vision of director Peter Travis bring Dredd to life as a futuristic neo-noir action film that returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra's revered comic strip. Dredd is set for release in the US on September 21st this fall.

Thanks to raa2001 for the submission.
