A motion comic which provides some backstory to Ma-Ma, Lena Headey's villainous role in the Dredd has been released. The future set neo-noir action thriller is directed by Pete Travis from a script by Alex Garland. Karl Urban stars as Judge Dredd & is joined by Olivia Thirlby, Deobia Oparei, Jason Cope & Domhnall Gleeson. This new adaptation of Judge Dredd is said to be more faithful to the popular 2000ad comic strip than the 1995 version which starred Sylvester Stallone. Dredd takes us to the wild streets of Mega City One, the lone oasis of quasi-civilization on Cursed Earth. Dredd is the most feared of elite Street Judges, with the power to enforce the law, sentence offenders & execute them on the spot if necessary. Dredd hits theaters in 3D this September 21st.  Hit the jump for the details.

Synopsis: "The future America is an irradiated waste land. On its East Coast, running from Boston to Washington DC, lies Mega City One- a vast, violent metropolis where criminals rule the chaotic streets. The only force of order lies with the urban cops called “Judges” who possess the combined powers of judge, jury and instant executioner. Known and feared throughout the city, Dredd (Karl Urban) is the ultimate Judge, challenged with ridding the city of its latest scourge – a dangerous drug epidemic that has users of “Slo-Mo” experiencing reality at a fraction of its normal speed. During a routine day on the job, Dredd is assigned to train and evaluate Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), a rookie with powerful psychic abilities thanks to a genetic mutation. A heinous crime calls them to a neighborhood where fellow Judges rarely dare to venture- a 200 story vertical slum controlled by prostitute turned drug lord Ma-Ma (Lena Headey) and her ruthless clan. When they capture one of the clan’s inner circle, Ma-Ma overtakes the compound’s control center and wages a dirty, vicious war against the Judges that proves she will stop at nothing to protect her empire. With the body count climbing and no way out, Dredd and Anderson must confront the odds and engage in the relentless battle for their survival.
