Me, I'm just bummed that the aesthetic of the future is so similar to that of the 80's. "Dystopia" indeed! Check out the new TV Spot for Dredd, and tell me it isn't a super 80's throwback:
Dredd is an adaptation of the "legendary" comic--the very same comic used as the source material for the 1995 film Judge Dredd, starring Sylvester Stallone (Expendables 2). It is set in a future where one position, called a Judge, has the abilities of judge, jury, and executioner.
Karl Urban (Star Trek) stars as Judge Dredd, who is charge with destroying a dangerous drug ring. Dredd is joined by the rookie Judge Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), who possesses powerful psychic abilities.
Dredd is directed by Pete Travis and hits theaters September 21. For more, check out this red band Dredd clip.
