Karl Urban, Lena Headey and Olivia Thirlby star in the first Dredd trailer
I’ve never read one of the comics and I can’t say I was a fan of the Sylvester Stallone JUDGE DREDD film, so it’s hard for me to get too excited for another round of DREDD. But I do know some serious fans of the comic that weren’t pleased with Stallone’s take, so I’m anxious to see if they like Karl Urban‘s interpretation any better. The first trailer for the film has arrived and I’m not really sure what to make of it. On one hand, it looks like it could be fun watching Dredd kill a hundred bad guys and say some cheesy one-liners. On the other hand, it feels very familiar and Karl Urban’s “Batman voice” seemed a bit much.
DREDD is directed by Pete Travis (VANTAGE POINT) from a script by Alex Garland (SUNSHINE), so it has some talent behind the camera. DREDD stars Karl Urban, Lena Headey, Olivia Thirby and Langley Kirkwood. The film will hit theaters in 3D on September 21st, 2012. Oh, and we’ll be updating with an HD version as soon as one’s available.
