Judgment is coming for this teaser footage from the trailer for Dredd
The "dredded" teaser for a trailer continues to baffle and annoy, but thankfully this little snippet of footage from the trailer for the upcoming comic adaptation DREDD features some very promising stuff. We've seen images, animatics, and a poster, but now we have some genuine footage to sink our eyes into.
Blink and you'll miss it:
Pretty cool 10 seconds, eh? I really feel like the filmmakers have their eye on the prize here, based on what we've seen so far. The proof is in the pudding, but I'm thinking DREDD has a great possibility of being a sleeper hit. The pic stars Karl Urban as the titular Judge Dredd, along with Lena Headey and Olivia Thirlby, with director Pete Travis (VANTAGE POINT) at the helm.
Here's the synopsis:
Dredd takes place on a fictional Earth created as a result of the Atomic Wars. Survivors of this period are living in Mega-Cities, which protects its citizens from the Cursed Earth, a radioactive desert environment populated by mutants. The main story takes place in Mega-City One, where the police who are now called judges have the power to use police brutality to some extent to fight extreme murders. One man, Judge Dredd (Karl Urban), a senior law enforcement officer, teams up with a cadet called Judge Anderson (Olivia Thirlby) to track down a terrorist organization lead by Ma-Ma (Lena Headey), who is responsible for selling a reality-altering drug called Slo-Mo.
Check back tomorrow for the full trailer and start polishing your badge for DREDD when it opens on September 21, 2012.
