Dredd – The First Poster!

With just a few short months until the new Judge Dredd (simply titled: Dredd) movie hits the cinemas, we finally have the first poster for this Karl Urban starring comic book adaptation.

Directed by Pete Travis (Vantage Point, Endgame) the story is as follows (Care of IMDB): In a violent, futuristic city where the police have the authority to act as judge, jury and executioner, a cop teams with a trainee to take down a gang that deals the reality-altering drug, SLO-MO.

There are concerns about Dredd.  Little is known about it and considering the hype for The Dark Knight Rises, Avengers Assemble & The Amazing Spiderman the film generating almost zero buzz whilst sales screenings at Cannes took place behind closed doors (normally a bad sign in itself) .

That said with a screenplay from Alex Garland, this moody but dark teaser poster, a R Rating (UK 15/18 tbc), Game Of Thrones Lena Headley co-starring  and the fact it isn’t the Sly Stallone version from the 90’s at least it has a few things in it’s favour.

Maybe they are just waiting for the big boys to get off the stage before wow us with a killer trailer and an even better film?

Find out for yourself when Dredd is released on 21st September 2012.
