The trailer for Dredd with Karl Urban and Lena Headey comes out guns blazing

Jun. 21, 2012by: Paul Shirey

We've all been eager for a look at the new trailer for DREDD, if for no other reason than to see if it's something worthwhile or, as many have suspected, a low-budget mess.  Well, prepare to pass judgment as the trailer is ready for its day in court. 

Court's in session:

For me, this looks pretty awesome.  It has a very early 90's flavor to it with some grit and style to match.  The story seems to follow a structure much like the break-out hit THE RAID, which is kind of cool as well.

In short, they just don't make 'em like this enough.  Some will probably chalk this up to something akin to LOCKOUT, which was a cheesy low-budget film that didn't seem to know it (in terms of budget, anyway).  DREDD seems to have realized its strengths and played them justly, mostly focusing on  simple muzzle flash and ass kicking.  It looks like a less glitzy DEMOLITION MAN with low profile actors who won't get in the way of themselves. 

I'm breathing easy.  This looks pretty sweet.

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.

Starring Karl Urban as Dredd, Olivia Thirlby as Cassandra Anderson, and Lena Headey as the villainous Madeline "Ma-Ma" Madrigal, DREDD is directed by Pete Travis (VANTAGE POINT) and its theaters in 2D and 3D on September 21, 2012.

Extra Tidbit: I think it's pretty bold that they're using a female as the lead villain and who the hell is better than Lena Headey? She is the most vindictive, conniving, awesomely perfect bitch on Game of Thrones. Great casting.

I like what I see, mostly because I can't see Karl Urban making the stupid awkward looks he calls acting. Keeping the helmet on was probably for the best

Looks great! Wouldnt mind seeing it on opening weekend. Only thing I'm not diggin is Dredd's deep voiced one liners. Hope his character has more substance.

The trailer is definitely cool, but I just don't know if the world is willing to accept a Judge Dredd movie without Rob Schneider...

Niiiiiiiiiiiice!

Definitely checking this one out. The Stallone Dredd was something of a disappointment, as it suffered from 90s-itis, with its tongue-in-cheek sensibilities. This one looks a bit more down-to-earth, in a gritty, cyberpunk sorta way. Can't wait!

Ok

Not sure about this yet. Plot seems very simple and with the problems this film has had during production, I'll have to wait and see if this is worth the theaters or bluray. I think Karl Urban is fantastic and needs a break out role, I just need to see more coherent footage.

Holy shit!!!... I've got to see this! That looks pretty damn good. And I got a 90's movie violence vibe from it.. like Robocop 2 for instance. I definitely will be checking it out. Bring on the hard R.

Yes, the helmet is hilariously large, but that makes the big lug more endearing. And this is gonna be hard HARD R - rated 18 in the UK.
Oh, and the script for Dredd predates The Raid.

I'm not overly familiar with the character, only read a couple of the graphic novels a long time ago, so I have no particular hang ups over helmet size etc. Think this looks like a fun throw away action flick, will wait for the word on the street before deciding whether to invest in a ticket though.

He's not Judge Judy and Executioner!

WOW THATS GREAT!!

although the Dredd cycle was more faithful in the stallone movie... at least THIS time he'll keep the friggin helmet on the entire movie... WHERE ARE THE SHOUDER PADS from the comic? WHERE is the EAGLE shoulder PAD?
helmet looks spot on perfect... love it... Hope it does well and we get a sequel with Judge Death

It looks okay. Almost rips The Raid off completely though. Theres a whole lot of look at this cool unique looking gun shots so im not completely sold. well see how this turns out. The director doesnt give me a whole bunch of hope for this though.

Read the script for this back in december. It was a hard R, and I'm glad they stuck to that rating with the film. We should be getting some tasty treats. Haven't seen The Raid, but when I first read it, I'd describe it as Die Hard meets Robocop 2

I like it. So what if it's being sol as The Raid set in the future. I think this movie's (just like The Raid's) reason for being is just over the top action shenanigans, and that's what it looks like.

I have a feeling everyone involved is going to be having fun. Karl Urban looking mean 100% of the time, Lena Heady chewing it up as a villain, Olivia Thirlby, as the plucky green cadet - seriously this has a lot going for it.

This looks very underwhelming, and is it just me, or does Karl Urban just seem so wrong here? That voice is rather ridiculous coming from him. I'll still see it anyway, I'm just hoping it's better than the trailer makes it look.

For the people saying it looks cheap, that's because it doesn't have as big a budget as your run-of-the-mill PG 13 pussy action crapfest. What we get in return is an R-rating, which sounds like a pretty good deal to me!

Oh yes, I like this! Karl Urban, Lena Heady, a lot of bullets and an R-rating... This could deliver all the violence and hardcore shootouts The Expendables 2 won't with that inevitable PG 13 rating. Looking forward to this!

Hoping it's just a duff trailer, 'cos that did very little for me. As others have mentioned it's got a cheap, sci-fi version of The Raid feel about it. Hopefully the movie won't be as much of a turkey as that trailer made it look.

Ford describes Dredd as an "edgy, cool film with a rocking soundtrack", arguing that it "appears very fresh and distinctive. It's Dirty Harry meets District 9".

That was one of the review bits from Cannes.

Its still early, being the first trailer and all, but I'm not sold. It looks really cheap thus far, however its getting good reviews, so I'm not going to judge it this soon.

Also Dredd's voice is really bothering me

doesnt look like a masterpiece but a fun flick nonetheless, plus it seems very faithful and my biggest complaint (the big helmet) looked fine to me.

You Schmoes and your vibes.... You've only seen about a minute of Total Recall.

The Raid was not the first movie to feature a battle to the top of a building to fight a villain. Bruce Lee did it in the Game of Death, just to name one.

The Lockout comparison jumped out at me, you hit the nail on the head. However, I loved Lockout. It was a throwback in the best sense of the word, and maybe Dredd will be too. The stylization seems a little self-indulgent but the slo-mo drug is a halfway-clever/decent excuse for that. Full "judgement" is of course reserved for when the movie comes out, but so far eh it's alright.

Wow, this looks SO BAD. I know it's a low-budget film, but that looks like a fan-made trailer. (And I've seen better ones, too -- someone made a fake trailer for Die Hard 5 and the editing was better.) There were tons of rumours about the production of this film being plagued by difficulties and the original director getting fired because the studio wasn't happy with the dailies, and...well...this certainly adds credence to those rumours. Looks like one of the worst films of the year.

Well, it took a couple of viewings to know what I was even looking at. I'm a little bothered by the super-stylized music-video aesthetic, though I guess it's gonna play into the plot somehow, with the drug connection. Lena Heady looks great but I was hoping for more scenery chewing, Karl Urban's doing a decent Clint Eastwood (and the helmet doesn't look as bad in motion), and yes, I am getting a Total Recall remake vibe, too. At least Urban's going the complete opposite direction Stallone went

I've only watched this on a small screen at work, with no sound, so hard to be 'Judge'mental. Some of the vehciles look like normal cars, appreciate this is on a budget but Mega City 1 is supposed to be very futuristic, not have VW campers milling about.
I love Karl Urban (not literally) and as an Englishman have a soft spot for Dredd. I think this is a Filmflex or DVD job for me.

Looks cheap. Like "we didn't have a budget so 95% of the movie is filmed in a parking garage" cheap. Lena Headey looks like she'll be the best part of the movie if she plays her villain more subdued like in GoT. I still don't think Urban is much of an imposing Dredd, but at least they were smart enough to keep his helmet on the whole movie.

Mixed feelings for sure!

On the one hand, it looks visually rich, violent and gritty. Getting a bad-ass female villain is hell of a great move (specially since it's Heady).

On the other hand, I cannot help to see Urban as a miscast (don't get me wrong.. he's awesome, but in this one..? hmm..), plus the plot makes it sound too close to The Raid. And the Helmet... seriously?! He's supposed to look threatening with that? And why the "rookie" doesn't wear one? Oh she's hot.. ok, I get it

She doesn't wear a helmet because she's got some psychic abilities which I KNOW sounds stupid, but turned out to kick ass in the screenplay.

Sure.. ok.. I don't mind that or any other reason to see her cute face on the big screen.

BTW.. albeit mixed feelings I'm definitely there on opening night. Passing on an R-rate Sci-Fi actioner? No way Jose

And surely enough, the trailer was taken down! Seriously, WTF Lionsgate? You put this trailer out only to pull it back??? I really don't get why the studios need to be so anal-retentive. Sure the trailer got leaked earlier than you anticipated, but in the end all you got was a bit more advertisement. Just fuckin' roll with it!

Speaking from working the YouTube channel for JoBlo, the studios are finally beginning to see the error of their ways but it will take time.
