The full trailer for Dredd has finally been released online, and we have to say we are pretty convinced by some aspects of this promo.



First thing's first - Karl Urban looks great as Dredd, with the gravelly voice, menacingly set jaw and frank delivery a far better fit than that notorious Sylvester Stallone effort. Olivia Thirlby seems to be giving it her all as Judge Anderson, and Lena Headey is a good fit for the crime lord Ma-Ma.

The plot concerns Ma-Ma's distribution of dangerous drug, slow-mo, and features Dredd and Anderson being trapped in a tower block run by the villain. This seems worryingly like it could be blown out of the water by the Raid, but there are enough sci-fi stylings here for us to give it the benefit of the doubt. A cool cast and authentic design work mean we look forward to seeing more of this incarnation of Dredd when it is released on September the 7th.
