Lionsgate has released a new behind the scenes featurette for Dredd 3D that focuses on the crazy slow motion special effects that are used in the film. The movie contains several slow motion scenes, because the story centers around a drug called "Slo Mo" that slows time down in the brain for anyone that gets high on it. I thought it was a bit over used in the movie, but there was one scene in slow motion that was insane. It was unlike anything I've ever scene before, incredibly detailed bloody violence in ultra slo mo is a pretty crazy sight to behold.
The movie will be released in theaters on September 21st, are you planning on seeing it?
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.
