Check out this new clip from the Judge Dredd reboot coming out next month. It gives us a really close look at Ma-Ma who is the film’s central antagonist played by an artificially scarred Lena Headey. Most of you may remember the actress from her role as the ruthless Cersei on HBO’s Game of Thrones. She’s legitimately creepy in this, so her appearance alone is definitely worth the view.
Aside from Ma-Ma’s introduction, the following also manages to reinforce the plot of the Peter Travis-directed feature. Essentially, Karl Urban’s Judge Dredd and a rookie judge (Olivia Thirlby) are tasked with bringing down a gang that deals with a reality-altering drug called SLO-MO. Continue Reading
There is a Dredd reboot coming our way in case you have not heard.

In terms of setting, this is very much your classic R-rated Judge Dredd. The backdrop is a fictional earth where police are now called judges and brutality is in their nature. This Pete Travis-directed film casts Olivia Thirlby and Lena Headey in supporting roles with the former playing a partner-like cadet named Judge Anderson. Headey is the villainous lead Ma-Ma who is responsible for selling a reality-altering drug called Slo-Mo. Continue Reading
There is a heap of violence in what you are about to watch, so be advised if you have children around or consider yourself squeamish because Dredd is an R-rated feature and it shows. That said, here is the debut clip of the Pete Travis-directed film starring Karl Urban which has Judge Dredd and his rookie partner (Olivia Thirlby) busting down a door and ruining the day of a handful of druggies. The narcotic in question is a fictional one called slo-mo which slows everything down for the user, thus the way this particular scene was shot. Continue Reading
