Those who were lucky enough to see the world premiere of director Pete Travis’ Dredd 3D have said nothing but praise about the film. Gritty, stylish and insanely violent, it would appear that Dredd 3D is a terrific achievement, and more than buries the memories of that awful Stallone starring film from 1995.
The US release of Dredd is getting closer, with the 7th September just over a month away. As the release date gets nearer a new poster has been revealed for the film, and we have it right here for you. Naturally the poster features Dredd front and centre and looking lean, mean and ready for action. The chaos around him and the word “judgement is coming” only hint at the good things in store for us.
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.
