Lionsgate has begun the onslaught of Dredd 3D marketing and promotion this week with new clips and this new television spot for the upcoming release. There’s tons more on the way from the look of things. The movie stars Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby, and Lena Headey.
This movie looks to be all action and violence in true Judge Dredd style. This NerdBastard is truly hopeful for this version of the Dredd character. After watching everything available on the Internet there hasn’t been one clip of a witty quip, no banter, no Stallone type mugging to the camera. This could just be the Dredd movie fanboys . . . and girls have been waiting for.
The movie will be released in theaters on September 21st. If your there opening night in Atlanta Ga, look around you, this NerdBastard might just be in a seat next to you!
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.
Empire magazine has gotten their hands on some pictures from the upcoming Judge Dredd movie. Everyone has seen the Karl Urban as Dredd pics but this is the first real look at the Olivia Thirby‘s Judge Anderson.
Judge Anderson is the physic judge recruit that Dredd reluctantly takes under his wing. Not to say that he gives her any more slack than he gives anyone. He is the law after all. I do like the grittier look this film has shown us so far. Mega City One is not the paradise everyone hopes for. Pick up a couple of Judge Dredd books and you’ll quickly see a harsh world.
