New Clip From ‘Dredd,’ Starring Karl Urban

DreddLionsgate has released a new clip from Pete Travis’ ‘Dredd.’ The film stars Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby and Lena Headey.

 

In the clip, we get to see Dredd and what a “Street block” of the future might look like. A menacing woman’s voice tells all the plebs in the now locked down block that there are two Judges amongst them and until she gets them — and by this, I think she means kills them — The block will remanded locked down and everyone in it will be stuck.

 

As I said before, The neo-noir action film is directed by Pete Travis (Vantage Point) from a script by Alex Garland (28 Days Later, Never Let Me Go, Sunshine). This new adaptation of Judge Dredd is said to be more faithful to the comic which is really exciting, because the comics rock.

 

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.
