Dredd Motion Poster Shoots Up The Web

The sentence is death

The promotional campaign for Dredd finally appears to be approaching something close to high gear, what with the trailer arriving in the last couple of weeks. With Comic-Con just around the corner, Lionsgate has revealed a motion poster, which features the iconic lawman doing what he does best: administering gunishment.

With Karl Urban under the helmet as the man himself, Dredd finds the Judge busy doling out tough justice in the harsh cityscape of Mega-City One. While training a new recruit, the psi-powered Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), Dredd endeavours to track down and destroy a terrorism / drug operation run by the devious, powerful Ma-Ma (Lena Headey).

But putting an end to her plans won’t be as easy as snapping cuffs on her (or putting a bullet on her noggin). First they’ll have to fight their way through the huge tower block that Ma-Ma rules, one swarming with heavily-armed thugs.

Peter Travis directed the movie, working from a script by Alex Garland. The official site has also now launched, which features a chance for Con attendees to register for a screening scheduled for the preview night of Wednesday, July 11.

Dredd rides into cinemas on September 7.
