Total Film has released the first full trailer for Dredd, the latest adaptation of the 2000 AD comic featuring the badass to beat all badasses, Judge Dredd. It looks damn cool too, with Karl Urban capturing everyone’s favourite gravelly Judge, albeit slightly reminiscent of The Raid.
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. It comes to UK screens on 7 September.
