Dredd TV spot is ‘legendary’

Here’s the latest Dredd 3D TV spot that’s not afraid to show its comic book roots with lines like “Based on the legendary comic book.” We get bits of new footage including scenes of the city streets and freeways! Yay!





I am looking forward to this movie, but should I try to be hip and watch The Raid: Redemption first? Everyone and their mom have been saying that Dredd is copying that movie. Then again, Dredd was in production in 2010, while The Raid in 2011.

Synopsis – 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 neighborhood 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.

Dredd 3D hits theaters September 21, 2012.
