New Dredd Clip



Dredd and Lionsgate have released a new clip. In the clip we learn Olivia Thirbly’s character Judge Cassandra Anderson is an idealist who believes that good people can be found in bad places. Karl Urdan’s Judge Dredd doesn’t share Anderson’s optimism.


Dredd is really turning out to feel like an English film. The UK film sites are getting all the good promos. This one comes from Total Film. Also, the film opens in the UK on September 7th, two weeks before it opens in the States on September 21st.


Filming for Dredd took place in South Africa, at Cape Town Film Studios. The interesting note here? Dredd began filming in November of 2010. So its been a long time coming. I’m guessing the 3D work took some time. Also, director Pete Travis spent a long time editing this film with Mark Eckersley. They are proud of there work too, and there have been a couple editing featurettes released online for the film.  


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.
