Earlier this summer, Lionsgate exhibited extreme confident in Pete Travis‘ comic book film Dredd 3D when they screened it for fans at San Diego Comic-Con. The gamble paid off. Buzz was solid for the film, which is an incredibly tight, focused, hard R-rated, violent throwback to the simple, bad ass action movies of the Eighties. Watch our review here.
Karl Urban plays Dredd, a no-nonsense Judge in a futuristic city called Mega City One. He and other Judges serve as judge, jury and executioner when dealing with the criminal element. Dredd is asked to help break in a new recruit (Olivia Thirlby) and the pair get stuck in a massive apartment complex run by a drug czar named Ma-Ma (Lena Headey). She decides to shut the entire building down and tell everyone to bring her the two Judges dead or alive. And that’s where the fun begins.
Yes, Dredd 3D sounds like the plot of The Raid: Redemption and Karl Urban is well aware of that fact. We spoke to the star while at Comic-Con and he discussed the similarities between the two films, acting without ever showing your face, the seemingly simple scope of the film and the mind games he was then playing with fans when being asked about Star Trek 2. Read our interview after the jump then see Dredd 3D on September 21.
