New Dredd poster assures us that judgment is coming

I guess if you're going to go with a tagline, you might as go with the most obvious one. Here we learn from the new DREDD 3D poster that, indeed, judgment is coming. Perfect, of course, but I can't help but wish they had come up with something a little different. Maybe, "HE'LL be the judge of that!" No? Okay then...

The poster itself is about as good as one could hope for: Judge Dredd stands tall amid the wreckage and ruin, judging everyone to hell and back. Dude is really judgmental.

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.

DREDD 3D opens on SEPTEMBER 21st.
