Judgement has arrived! The Lawman cometh DREDD First Trailer has now finally arrived! After years of suffering of suffering from the hands from the dreadful 1995 Sly Stallone version 17 years on the iconic helmet has been passed onto Karl Urban (Star Trek) and will stay on as promised like how eponymous lawman is in the comicbook. For those not familiar with the legendary fictional character, Dredd is set in a Dystopian future where the lands, cities or Mega Cities laws are governed by the judges who are the law, Judge and Jury dishing out punishment on the spot.They are the embodiment of Justice and in Mega City one Judge (Joe) Dredd is the LAW!
A great opening for the trailer as we see a shot of Mega City One and Drugs are still a problem or Slo-Mo a substance that effectively slows time by 90%. Ma-Ma the criminal drug lynchpin controls as well as produces the drug giving her total control over Mega City One however there’s one Lawman knows Ma-Ma is not the law but Dredd who is determined to infiltrate her block and let her know ‘I Am The Law’
Dredd is a long time coming not for the fact of correcting the injustice of the 1995 film but actually getting this film made as its had its fair share of problems (with the actual film been release date,production, etc…), you can see a few things that look a little out of place however Karl Urban does look like he’s pulled it off. Dredd is a gravelled faced man with his mouth the key to his emotions as his helmet covers his anonymity as for Olivia Thirlby she does a little out of place but we’ll give her credit for her determination . Dare I say it and I’m anyone else who watches this trailer there film’s plot is reminiscent to a certain Gareth Evans The Raid? That’s not a bad thing to be connected with however if this film doesn’t work out it could be a sign of what the Raid remake might be like.
Judgement has arrived, its time to be Judge,jury and executioner on the trailer. The law man DREDD cometh on September 7th in UK&Ireland, starring Lena Headey, Jason Cope, Langley Kirkwood, Kevon Kane, Joe Vaz, Warrick Grier, Scott Sparrow and Luke Tyler.
(update – 22 june Trailer now updated with a HD version Of Trailer)
In DREDD, 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 neighbourhood 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.
