Dredd takes place in a futuristic, dystopian America, where the “vast, violent metropolis” Mega City One is patrolled by cops known as “Judges,” serving as a judge, jury, and executioner all in one. The most effective (and feared) of these Judges is Dredd (Urban); hence, he’s tasked to train and evaluate rookie Judge Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby). Things get real dangerous real quick when Dredd and Anderson investigate a crime that leads them to the “dangerous” side of town – and, eventually, the 200-story compound occupied by drug lord Madeline ‘Ma-Ma’ Madrigal (Headey) and her forces. This culminates in all-out warfare between Ma-Ma’s clan and the Judges, who must stay alive within the criminal-infested confines of that massive infrastructure
Dredd comes to 3D and 2D theaters September 21st, 2012.
