Karl Urban Plays It Serious In First Trailer For Dredd

Dredd is coming, whether you liked the 1995 Sylvester Stallone starred Judge Dredd or not. This reboot, directed by Pete Travis, looks like a combination of the upcoming Total Recall reboot, plus a little bit of The Raid: Redemption.

I’m not convinced that a straight-faced Karl Urban can lead the entire film, but I’m willing to set aside the cheesy one-liners and passable action sequences on display in hopes for an entertaining R-rated action picture. Olivia Thirlby is also in the film and she’s not nearly as believable as Urban, but we’ll save that complaint for another day.

Dredd opens on September 21st, 2012
