Lionsgate has released a new 60-second TV spot for Dredd 3D, a new adaptation of the Judge Dredd comics.  The TV-spot basically plays like an abbreviated trailer, and since it’s not red-band, it can’t show one of the film’s distinctive features, which is the hard-R gore.  There are some brutal kills in Dredd, and I suppose it’s a good thing that they haven’t been spoiled.  The studio has also released a new featurette high-lighting the drug “Slo-Mo” which is taking over Mega City One.  The drug makes the user feel like everything is moving at 1% its normal speed, and it’s neat to see the visuals play at 4000-frames per second.  I’m particularly grateful that director Pete Travis didn’t overuse the effect.

Hit the jump to check out the TV spot and the featurette.  The film will play at the Toronto International Film Festival and Fantastic Fest before opening nationwide on September 21st.  You can click here to read my review.

Slow Mo Featurette:





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.
