Get Judgmental With This ‘Dredd 3D’ Clip

September 21st won’t be just the autumnal equinox (which is totally awesome on its own merits), but also the release date for a film featuring an old friend of ours, Legendary Comics’ Judge Dredd. Dredd 3D premieres that same day, offering up a darker take on the judge, jury, and executioner.

Lest you think this is a tacked-on sequel rushed to meet 3D demand, the script is written by Alex Garland, who made a name for himself with 28 Days Later. In case you couldn’t tell from the clip, the producers decided to take Judge Dredd in a younger, less mumbly direction with Karl Urban. His nemesis will be played by a prostitute-turned-drug kingpin. And while it would be funnier if that character was a former gigolo, it’s a girl, played by Juno‘s Olivia Thirlby.

So open your eyes, get your tickets, and realize that Judge Dredd isn’t living in 1994 anymore.
