New Dredd Poster Online

Prepare for Urban warfare

If ever a jawline said "Do. Not. Mess." it is surely this one. In this latest poster for Dredd, Karl Urban is clenching his teeth so hard we can only assume he's chewing rocks. It's just the thing to give you a last injection of determination to make it to the weekend.

The film, of course, sees Urban play 2000AD's hardest lawman, the man who neatly marries the roles of judge, jury and executioner in one unstoppable package. Here, he takes new recruit Judge Anderson (Olivia Thirlby) into a vast tower block in pursuit of a drug dealer called Ma Ma (Lena Headey) who has a few tricks up her sleeve.

Directed by Pete Travis and written by Alex Garland, the film hits cinemas on September 7 in the UK - and you can read much more about it in the latest issue of Empire, also on iPad in the UK and in the US App store. Just one thing: doesn't Dredd's choice of location remind you of another crime-fighter, just a touch?
