Sylvester who? That’s what fans will be saying after seeing the new trailer for the Pete Travis reboot ‘Dredd.’ G4’s ‘Attack of the Show’ was able to air the trailer on their show yesterday and we now have that for you!
The trailer confirms what has been said in the last few months about this movie. It’s darker and grittier and even has the ability to make you forget this is a reboot. This is the Dredd that fans have been waiting for.
And speaking of waiting, I won’t make you wait any longer. Check out the new trailer for Dredd below!
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.
‘Dredd’ will hit theaters on September 21 , 2012 and is directed by Pete Travis and stars Karl Urban, Lena Headey, and Olivia Thirlby.
