Today, several new photos from the film have been released featuring Karl Urban as the titular Dredd, as well as Lena Heady and Olivia Thirlby. They range from action-packed to characters standing around doing nothing. Most of all though, they show that the filmmakers have really got the look down for the film.
There was a similar look to the original film that starred Sylvester Stallone, which was an incredibly cheesy movie, though there was some fun to be had with it. A remake could improve upon it, but hopefully it’s not going for a duplication of the overrated The Raid: Redemption, as the trailer seems to be implying.
In case you’re not familiar with the film, here’s the official synopsis:
Dredd takes place on a fictional Earth created as a result of the Atomic Wars. Survivors of this period are living in Mega-Cities, 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.
Dredd 3D hits theaters on September 21, 2012.
