We proudly premiered the first poster for DREDD 3D, and I couldn't ask for more than to be here for the final poster.

The moment I looked at this artwork, fireworks exploded in my brain and spelled out the words "Hell yeah."  I'd frame this sucker and put it up on my wall in a heartbeat.

I can't even quite articulate why everything about this movie seems to so strike me so, but that doesn't change the fact that it does.  I'm helpless to resist its gruff charm, and I've given up all attempts at fighting off my feelings.

Time will tell if I have irrationally overhyped myself when DREDD 3D invades cinemas everywhere in less than two months on September 21st.

Dredd 3D final poster

Plot recap: 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 (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 (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 (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.

Extra Tidbit: I wish it wasn't being pushed as "DREDD 3D," but you do what you have to in order to give ticket sales that boost I guess...

over the moon isn't up to current events...

The general consensus after the early Comic-Con screening from people who saw it was: IT WAS DAMN GOOD.
So uh, yeah.

It looks a bit like Daredevil poster but this poster looks more badass.

It has a great, washed-over feel that is grungy and retro without looking too hard like it's trying to be, and doesn't feel like shiny, sloppy Photoshop work. It truly paints Dredd as the darkly heroic figure among the squalor, as he should be.

Sorry

But this film looks like just another ho-hum September release. I will admit that this poster isn't bad. But it isn't mind blowing or anything. The whole "hero standing in front of a city in ruins" thing isn't exactly a fresh and interesting poster concept.

I'm excited to see it especially after seeing the horrible Stallone version back in the day. Unfortunately it probably won't do very well as violent, R-rated action movies tend to not play well with a general audience. Fortunately in this case they kept the budget fairly low so it doesn't need to make a fortune to justify it's release.

this looks familiar

Isn't that the same spot were Dare Devil stood in his poster? I guess 'blind-justice' made way for 'blind-fury', eh? eh..?
