The first trailer for Pete Travis‘ Dredd has gone online. I know filming was already well underway (if not wrapped) by the time The Raid came out, but thems the breaks. The trailer does a good job of setting up the conflict, and while there’s the inevitable speed-ramping, at least there’s a plot point to explain it (the drug called Slo-Mo, which is what I think Zack Snyder takes every morning). I’m not sure if this trailer is enough to get naysayers past the 1995 Sylvester Stallone flop, I’m still excited to see Karl Urban as the eponymous judge/jury/executioner.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also stars Olivia Thirlby and Lena Headey. Dredd opens in 3D on September 21st.
