New “Dredd 3D” clip busts perps, ripples flesh…

You’ve watched the trailer and can now see a brief clip from the new Dredd 3D” on the film’s official site.

Any fears we may have had that the makers of the film were watering down the content to appeal to a mainstream, PG-13 audience has just been well and truly slammed int0 an ISO-Cube for seven years, I think we can conclusively say.  The Cannon/Stallone “Dredd” this most certainly isn’t – Empire’s review from the 2012 Comic-Con screening indicates that “Dredd 3D” is very much its own take on the source comics material, for good or ill (Karl Urban‘s great, the low-budget is noticeable, it’s all quite similar to “The Raid”) but the tone is generally complementary.

So much gore!  It’s like director Pete Travis and writer Alex Garland have mainlined a bunch of Paul Verhoeven‘s eighties films, drawn from “2000AD” as though it were the sacred text that some would say it is and then gone to town to deliver the kind of old-school sci-fi actioner that many a fan will yearn for from this film.

I’m almost aggrieved that I have to wait until September to see this – it looks so good!
