Learn all about the impenetrable gear of Dredd 3D in this new featurette

DREDD swings his long arm of the law into theaters this Friday, September 21st, and in case you're still waffling over whether to see it or not, perhaps this new "Gear" featurette for the flick we have below will sway your thinking.

In the new stint, you'll hear from various production and costume designers, as well as stars Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby (below) about the integral nature of Dredd's form-fitting uniform and bullet-proof helmet. All about function, not fashion!

With Lena Headey, Kevin Kane, Jason Cope, Joe Vaz, Langley Kirkwood and Warrick Grier lending support:

The future America as 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 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, 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 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.

DREDD rules this Friday.
