The new Judge Dredd movie, simply called Dredd, is slowly but surely making it's way to the big screen, and from everything we've seen and heard it looks like it's going to be pretty baddass. Even the creator of the comic seems happy with the outcome, so that's a big plus for hardcore fans of the comic.
Today we bring you a new photo and a more detailed plot synopsis for the movie. The movie was directed by Pete Travis and stars Karl Urban as The Law, with Olivia Thirlby and Lena Headey.
Here's the new Plot 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.
