Lionsgate is rebooting the Judge Dredd franchise this upcoming September 21, 2012. No more Sylvester Stallone as popular comic book hero Judge Dredd, instead Karl Urban is taking that role. Similar to Raid, Judge Dredd must take down a drug kingpin who is on the top floor of a huge building. The Judge must go floor by floor killing everyone in his path. Drug kingpin played by Lena Headey and Judge Dredd partner in training or something like that played by Olivia Thirlby. Karl Urban delivers a captivating performance from the trailer and pulses with intimidation. Check out the trailer below to watch Judge Dredd so far done right.
Synopsis: In a violent, futuristic city where the police have the authority to act as judge, jury and executioner, a cop teams with a trainee to take down a gang that deals the reality-altering drug, SLO-MO.
