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 JudgementIsComing.com for a chance to win a trip to see the flick in London! READ MORE
Lionsgate’s reboot Dredd premiered at the San Diego Comic-Con last night. It stars Karl Urban (Star Trek, The Bourne Supremacy), and was directed by Pete Travis (Endgame) and written by Alex Garland (28 Days Later, Sunshine). For those of you unfamiliar with Judge Dredd, it follows a team of futuristic police officers who act as judge, jury, and executioner, taking down crime in the meanest way possible.
While many people thought the the trailer looked a bit like The Raid, well apparently they were right. The protags have to battle their way out of a giant building. But it’s not like Dredd ripped that movie off – it started production 2 years ago.
More to the point – apparently this thing is insanely hardcore and gory. Head inside for some online reactions. Dredd hits theaters on September, 21st. READ MORE
