JoBlo has revealed the teaser poster for Dredd, the latest film to adapt the 2000 AD comic book character Judge Dredd. It is the definition of minimalist, if you ignore the guy in the red and cold suit in the middle. It’s black on black on black, and it couldn’t seem more cool if it tried. There’s also four new new hi-res photos of Karl Urban and Lena Heady from Movies.ie.
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.
Dredd is released in Australia on 25 October 2012 from Icon.
