‘Dredd’ (2012) Trailer Released

The character of Judge Dredd was created in 1977 for 2000 AD, a British science fiction anthology. Creators John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra placed him in a futuristic world where ‘judges’ were given all the powers to judge, sentence and execute law breakers.

In 1995 the extremely popular comics were turned into a movie directed by Danny Cannon. With a story by screenwriters William Wisher Jr and Steven E. de Souza, the film’s critical reception was lacking in enthusiasm, despite a cast that included Sylvester Stallone as Judd Dredd accompanied by Armand Assante, Diane Lane and Rob Schneider.

This year, director Pete Travis is giving Dredd new life. Earlier this week, the trailer for the upcoming film debuted:

Starring Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby and Lena Headey and written by Alex Garland, Dredd will release September 7 in the UK and September 21 in the US.
