As the release date for Dredd (September 21st) creeps slowly closer we can expect more and more teasers, trailers, and stills from the production. Today NerdBastards has 13 new Dredd production stills courtesy of JoBlo.com.
Dredd, directed by Pete Travis, stars Karl Urban, Lena Headey, and Olivia Thirlby is a world where:
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.
Check out the new stills below and then watch the trailer released at SDCC2012.
The first full trailer for the upcoming Judge Dredd reboot “Dredd” has hit the Internet and now the tables have turned and “Dredd” will be the one judged, jury-ed, and sentenced.
This NerdBastard has been pretty excited about Karl Urban donning the helmet, the badge, and the shoulder pads of Judge Dredd. Urban is a great casting choice with that chin and voice.
The story seems almost tailored to make a video game out of it. Judge Dredd must enter a 200 level building controlled by one woman at the top who wants him dead.
This NerdBastard is still really excited about this movie, but after watching the trailer, is feeling a little concerned. The trailer falls just short of grabbing hold of me and taking me into the world of Dredd, maybe it’s just my high expectations.

“Dredd” is written by Alex Garland, directed by Pete Travis, starring Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby, and Lena Headey. “Dredd” opens in theaters across the U.S. on September 21.
