AMC Theatres had the opportunity to co-host a screening of “Dredd 3D” at Comic-Con this year and, as many know, the film was very well received at the convention.
AMC moviegoers will have their chance to see “Dredd” beginning on September 21st.
In the interim, take a look at the new “Dredd 3D” featurette below which explores the history of the character and the world he lives in.
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.
During a routine day on the job, Dredd is assigned to train and evaluate Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), a rookie with powerful psychic abilities thanks to a genetic mutation. A heinous crime calls them to a neighborhood where fellow Judges rarely dare to venture- a 200 story vertical slum controlled by prostitute turned drug lord Ma-Ma (Lena Headey) and her ruthless clan. When they capture one of the clan's inner circle, Ma-Ma overtakes the compound's control center and wages a dirty, vicious war against the Judges that proves she will stop at nothing to protect her empire. With the body count climbing and no way out, Dredd and Anderson must confront the odds and engage in the relentless battle for their survival.
Pete Travis directs a cast that includes Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby and Lena Headey.
"Dredd 3D" opens in AMC 3D and 2D Theatres on September 21st, 2012.
