It looks like if Ma-Ma’s not happy, nobody is as Lionsgate reveals in the latest clip released for ‘Dredd 3D’.
It’s the calm before the storm as ‘Ma-Ma’ Madrigal (Lena Headey) has learned that Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) and Judge Anderson (Olivia Thrilby) have been lurking around her Peach Tree compound. She orders her minions that it’s now open season time and anyone else better get out of their way. What can be presumed that follows is a bout of non-stop relentless action and blazing shoot outs worthy of a Dredd remake (as the “Slo-Mo” red band trailer also shows).
Watch the trailer below but fair warning! This is a rated ‘R’ movie and the clip does have some explicit language.
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.
