Gotta admit, Karl Urban as Judge Dredd is looking better and better with every clip I’ve seen from the movie. He’s certainly got the whole growling thing down pat. Check out a new, quickie clip from “Dredd”, which finds the titular lawman laying down the law to Lena Headey’s big bad. Yes, Lena Headey is the villain in this one. That’s not very convincing, but the building full of bad guys probably help.
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.
Also starring Olivia Thirlby, Jason Cope, Langley Kirkwood, Kevon Kane, Joe Vaz, Warrick Grier, Scott Sparrow, and Luke Tyler.
Pete Travis directs the film, due out September 21, 2012.
