Here's a 10-second tease of the first trailer for Dredd, which is set to hit the net later today. This is the first footage we've seen of the film, and it goes by incredibly fast. But from what I see, it looks like it's going to be as badass as the people who worked on the film said it would be. The movie looks visually great, and I'm looking forward to seeing the story play out and Dredd brutally kick some ass! I can't wait to see the full trailer! Stay tuned, and we'll get it posted for you as soon as it goes live!
Here's the Synopsis:
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.
The movie will be released on September 21st, check out the preview and let us know what you think of this first footage!
