Opening this weekend is Dredd 3D.  As most of you know, Dredd is an adaption of the 2000AD comics character Judge Dredd, and it stars Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby, and Lena Headey.  The film follows Dredd (Urban) and rookie Judge Cassandra Anderson (Thirlby) fighting through a tower that’s crawling with thugs in their attempt to bring down drug overlord Ma-ma (Headey).  Unlike the Stallone version from the 90’s, this version of Dredd is gritty, ultra-violent, and really worth your time.  For more on the film, here’s Matt’s review, a featurette, a TV spot, and all our previous coverage.

At this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, I was able to speak with Urban before the premiere.  We talked about how the last few months have been since we spoke at Comic-Con (watch that interview here), what does it mean to premiere at TIFF, has he thought about Dredd sequels, his involvement in the post production, what props he’s taken home from set, and more.  In addition, we also talked about the Riddick sequel, the Star Trek video game, The Loft, what kind of projects is he looking to do in the future, and will he be going to the premiere of The Hobbit in New Zealand.  Hit the jump to watch.
