The movie stars Karl Urban as Judge Dredd, Olivia Thirlby, Lena Headey, Deobia Oparei, Jason Cope & Domhnall Gleeson. This new adaptation of Judge Dredd is said to be more faithful to the comic than the 1995 version that starred Sylvester Stallone. Dredd hits theaters this September 21st. Hit the jump for the details.
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."
