Director Pete Travis appears to have made a new Dredd film which has really caught the eye of movie fans. The film played to an enthusiastic audience at Comic-Con last week, and early reports are that the film is incredibly violent.
A new gallery of images from the film was released earlier today, and we can show you that gallery at the bottom of this post. While it doesn’t exactly give much away, it further shows off the coll style of the film and the grittiness of what we can expect. Check out the images at the bottom of this post.
Pete Travis directs from a script written by Carlos Ezquerra and Alex Garland. Karl Urban will be playing Dredd, and he will be supported by Olivia Thirlby, Lena Headey, Domhnall Gleeson, Santi Scinelli and Jason Cope.
Dredd arrives in UK cinemas 7th September.

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.
