The official trailer for the much hyped 2012 silver screen adaptation of 2000 AD‘s gritty comic book character Judge Dredd has just hit the interwebs.
Dredd which is set to be released on September 21st stars Karl Urban as Judge Dredd and is directed by Pete Travis with the script written by Alex Garland. Hopefully this won’t suck as much as the Sylvester Stallone helmed 1995-released version. Watch the trailer below.
Synopsis: The story of Dredd takes place on a fictional Earth created as a result of the Atomic Wars. Survivors of this period are living in megacities, which protects its citizens from the Cursed Earth, a radioactive desert environment populated by mutants. The main story takes place in Mega-City One, where the police who are now called judges have the power to use police brutality to some extent to fight extreme murders. One man, Judge Dredd (Karl Urban), a senior law enforcement officer, teams up with a cadet called Judge Anderson (Olivia Thirlby) to track down a terrorist organization lead by Ma-Ma (Lena Headey), who is responsible for selling a reality-altering drug called Slo-Mo.
