Synopsis: "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."

Speaking with HeroComplex the actress stated:

Lena Headey“The world [in the film] feels really British, and I don’t know if that’s because it’s so dirty and dark.  And it’s … violent. Just in terms of gunplay, they’re not afraid to show blood and gunshot wounds. And it’s set up in this concrete sort of shanty town — it’s shanty but they’re blocks — concrete favelas.”

On her character.

Lena Headey: “She’s a prostitute who then kills her pimp and takes over his drug-running business…  I think of her like an old great white shark who is just waiting for someone bigger and stronger to show up and kill her.  She’s ready for it. In fact, she can’t wait for it to happen. And yet no one can get the job done.  She’s an addict, so she’s dead in that way, but that last knock just hasn’t come. This big, fat, scarred shark moving through the sea and everyone flees and she’s like, ‘Will someone just have the balls to do it? Please?‘”
 Dredd will be released in 2D & 3D on September 21st.
