Fourteen new images from Dredd have gone online. The hard-R adaptation of the comic book series has Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) and rookie Judge Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby) fighting through a tower crawling with thugs in their attempt to bring down drug overlord Ma-ma (Lena Headey). I thought the film was a passable action-thriller, but some of my trusted peers enjoyed it more than I did. Among these new images, one could be considered a spoiler, but it’s nothing too major. If you’re eager to get a better sense of the film’s visual style and see the lead characters in action, then these images are worth your time.
Hit the jump to check out the images. Dredd opens in 3D on September 21st.
Here’s the official synopsis for Dredd:
The future America is an irradiated waste land. On its East Coast, running from Boston to Washington DC, lies Mega City One–a vast, violent metropolis where criminals rule the chaotic streets. The only force of order lies with the urban cops called “Judges” who possess the combined powers of judge, jury and instant executioner. Known and feared throughout the city, Dredd (Karl Urban) is the ultimate Judge, challenged with ridding the city of its latest scourge–a dangerous drug epidemic that has users of “Slo-Mo” experiencing reality at a fraction of its normal speed.
