[San Diego Comic-Con ’12] First ‘Dredd’ Clip With Blow Your Fraggin’ Face Off!!

The endlessly inventive mind of writer Alex Garland and director Pete Travis bring Dredd back to life as a futuristic neo-noir action film. Filmed in 3D with stunning slow motion photography sequences, the film returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra’s revered comic strip.

Previewed at the San Diego Comic-Con, the buzz is strong with the attendees. Word on the street was the film is gushing with blood, so much so that we should be ashamed to have NOT been covering it. Proof is in the first ever clip that puts the slow motion madness on display. Get ready for some extreme gore. I can only imagine how much blood will flow when Lionsgate release on September 21.

Watch the clip and get the full plot details inside. You can also share the clip over at for a chance to win a trip to see the flick in London!

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.

    Looked more like paintball than gore due to the brightly colored heavy on the cgi blood. Still it might be fun.

    Fucking excellent. This could be a game changer for R rated superhero films. Maybe we could finally get a badass Daredevil or Punsiher.
