Debut Trailer of Karl Urban as ‘Dredd’

Written by Alexander Tucker   // 06/21/2012




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.


This trailer is very cool. I say cool, because that is what it is, it looks like a fun action packed shoot ‘em up picture where tons of bad guys get shoot. You know, Kind of like the comic?


I thought indiewire’s Kevin Jagernauth had a funny line in his piece this mourning, ‘In the future, drugs are still a problem, everything looks like “Blade Runner,” and dudes in helmets with consta-growl voices are the only measure of justice. Welcome to the world of “Dredd,” the remake of the “The Raid” you didn’t know you wanted.’


The film was Directed by Pete Travis and penned by Alex Garland. Karl Urban will be our Dredd, an interesting choice, but he did play a very good hard ass in Priest. Lets just hope it doesn’t turn out like Priest did. The film looked good, but it was a piece of shit.


Dredd could easily be the same thing, but I have learned never to judge  (get it) a trailer by its cover. The film also stars Olivia Thirlby and Lena Heady. Deobia Operei aslo shows up on screen as judge.


Here’s the synopsis: 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.
