Four New Dredd Images Debut

by  in Comic News, Movie News Comment

Courtesy of 2000AD, there arrive four new stills from Dredd, director Pete Travis’ take on the magazine’s futuristic law enforcer created John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra.

DREDD takes us to the wild streets of Mega City One, the lone oasis of quasi-civilization on Cursed Earth. Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) is the most feared of elite Street Judges, with the power to enforce the law, sentence offenders and execute them on the spot – if necessary. The endlessly inventive mind of writer Alex Garland and the frenetic vision of director Peter Travis bring DREDD to life as a futuristic neo-noir action film that returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra’s revered comic strip.

Dredd, which opens in 3D on Sept. 21, stars Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby, Lena Headey and Jason Cope.
