Backed by the Skream remix of La Roux's "In For the Kill," the trailer quickly lays out the premise of director Peter Travis' futuristic neo-noir action film: The sprawling, violent futuristic metropolis of Mega-City One is in thrall to Slo-Mo, a new drug that allows users to experience reality at a fraction of its normal speed. One woman, played by "Game of Thrones" star Lena Headey, controls the supply from within a 200-story towering slum in which even the Judges hesitate to enter. And only one man can stop her from taking control of the city: Judge Dredd. Well, Judge Dredd and a rookie assigned to him (Olivia Thirlby).
Based on the "2000AD" character created by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra, "Dredd" opens Sept. 21.
