Watch this if 720p or higher and stick it on full screen. You will not regret it!
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.
I know I can’t be the only one that’s excited about the new Judge Dredd movie starring Karl Urban. Sure, the Stallone Dredd was awful and he took off his helmet (Dredd fans will know why this is a sin) but I actually enjoyed the movie, but that’s probably because I’ve been a die-hard fan since I was first introduced to 2000 AD as a nipper by my cousin Noel.
Anyhow, here’s the latest poster for Dredd, and from what I hear the movie is shaping up to be pretty cool, although the ridiculous tiny eagles on the shoulder pad do have me gritting my teeth in anger.
