Bloody New Dredd Clip Crashes In

There are positive vibes coming out of Comic-Con about Dredd, which opened the event. Riding that wave of approval, here's a short new Dredd clip from the official website. It's not a trailer, but if it were, you might call it "red band", given the slo-mo blood-splattering that fills its minute of run-time. 

"Bare, rippling flesh gets pierced in loving slo-mo," says Empire's Chris Hewitt in his Dredd review. This is exactly what he was talking about, as veteran Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) and rookie Anderson (Olivia Thirlby) make an impromptu entrance into a den of druggies. Slo-Mo, you'll have read by now, is both the name of Mega City One's new illegal drug of choice, and its effect. So there's a plot reason for the bullet-time; it's doesn't just look cool.

"We're fighting the Stallone film to some extent," Dredd creator John Wagner told us this week in an exclusive interview. This clip seems a reasonable salvo in that battle, demonstrating that bloody violence and a down-and-dirty aesthetic are the order of the day rather than big-budget  fantasy FX, catchphrases and comedy sidekicks.

"Zarjazz!" we say,* and we'll probably keep saying it until Dredd's released on September 7. 

*It's a 2000 AD thing.
