DREDD

The full trailer is now online for Lionsgate’s highly-anticipated rebooted Dredd, staring Karl Urban as the titular judge, and Olivia Thirlby as Judge Anderson, and we’ve embedded it for you to watch.

Additional cast include Lena Headey, Jason Cope, Langley Kirkwood, Kevon Kane, Joe Vaz, Warrick Grier, Scott Sparrow, and Luke Tyler.

The film is based on the popular British comic book character created by writer John Wagner and artist Carlos Ezquerra that first appeared in 2000 A.D. #2 (March 1977).

The Pete Travis (Vantage Point) directed, Alex Garland (Sunshine, 28 Days Later) penned adaptation of the cult comic is set for a September 21st, 2012 release.

Here’s the 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 (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 Heady) 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.
