The trailer for DREDD has landed. It’s going to be compared to a futuristic version of THE RAID, Karl Urban’s voice is going to be compared to Christian Bale’s throaty Batman voice, and the film as a whole is going to be compared to the dog shit my pooch dropped on my neighbor’s lawn, and they would all be right. This thing looks just about as boring as I thought it would. Nothing in this trailer works for me, nobody shines, it’s a bleak, ugly trailer with little imagination. Have a look for yourself and tell me I’m wrong…
Here’s the official synopsis:
Dredd takes place on a fictional Earth created as a result of the Atomic Wars. Survivors of this period are living in Mega-Cities, which protects its citizens from the Cursed Earth, a radioactive desert environment populated by mutants. The main story takes place in Mega-City One, where the police who are now called judges have the power to use police brutality to some extent to fight extreme murders. One man, Judge Dredd (Karl Urban), a senior law enforcement officer, teams up with a cadet called Judge Anderson (Olivia Thirlby) to track down a terrorist organization lead by Ma-Ma (Lena Headey), who is responsible for selling a reality-altering drug called Slo-Mo.
