Lionsgate released a trailer for Judge Dredd, but don't expect to view it here. *Updated Now You Can*
Lionsgate has decided that embedding of the Judge Dredd trailer is not permitted, so you will have to go directly to YouTube to view it. We're not sure what this accomplishes, as YouTube videos get the same number of plays whether they are embedded or viewed directly on YouTube, but, well, this is the industry that wants to censor the entire internet to stop people from downloading movies. Check out the trailer here. Now, we will steal the keyword rich text from their video description:
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.
Now here's the Trailer in delicious You Tube glory:
