Dredd Trailer Arrives

Judgement Time

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.

3D? Really?

C'mon Hollywod aren't we past that phase yet?

Anyway, this looks decent but not movie theater decent. I shall wait till it is on Netflix.

'nuff said!

This was not on my radar at all, so this trailer has made me aware of it.  I'm not sure if it will be a trip to the theater or a rental for me, but will definitely see now.

 It definitely looks like a step up from the Stallone version.

 Nice...Helmet still looks too big for his head.  So, please tell me the end of the trailer wasn't the end of the bad guy...that would suck

I don't know why but it gives me a low budget vibe. Reminds me of the sci-fi movie Priest from a year or so ago that starred Paul Bettany. Another futuristic tale with a minimum of cast on a mostly CG world to save expense. I'm not saying its bad-or good. The new Total Recall, which has scenes that look very similar seems to have a higher production feel than this. Can't really tell. It gives me the vibe that I would wait until it is on disc, bootleg or cable before I see it.

Drok!! This will surpass my expectations. Like the shadow of the back of his head while putting helmet on, no face shots to be seen and lots of violence to be had. The run down mega city one is very Mike Mcmahon like, just like the oversized helmet and small shoulder pads. I'm very pleased indeed.

He's totally doing  Stallone which is hilarious. The one liners the voice - i mean yeah hilarious.

The helmet way to big maybe if he had the top chest piece it would be alot eaiser on the eyes. O well.

Yeah, it looks like a very simple movie and plot. What was great about the Stallone version is that I thought it dove into so many parts of the Dredd world, despite Stallone, I thought it was a lot of fun.

Karl Urban's voice sounds a lot like the Dark Knight... ugh.

Not sold on it. Sorry.

I'm intrigued.  It definitely has potential.  Plus... no Rob Schneider.
