Although we're currently in the movie doldrums, there are two big action movies looking to make a splash this September. On one hand, you've got 'Dredd,' a reboot of a comic book franchise that was dead on arrival in its original 1995 incarnation, and you've got 'Resident Evil: Retribution,' the fifth entry in a series that, like its zombie villains, refuses to die. Now, the former has a new featurette and the latter has a handful of new TV spots.

'Dredd' is not based on a particularly well known comic nor does it star a household name (although we here at Screencrush do love us some Karl Urban). Therefore, the marketing campaign has had to concentrate on the film's style, particularly its extensive use of extreme slow motion photography. Lionsgate has released a very cool featurette that explores this aspect of the film and it just confirms what we've always known: slow motion is really, really cool.
'Dredd 3D,' the big screen reboot of the semi-iconic British comic book character, opens a month from now and the marketing maching is kicking into high gear with the movie's first TV spot and a new viral site.
It's the end of summer, so celebrate by heading to the theater to check out this month's new releases. We've got the latest from Rian Johnson, a new raunchy female-centric comedy, an animated trip to a spooky hotel, and the highly-anticipated new film from Paul Thomas Anderson.
The official poster for 'Dredd' has been released with the tagline "Judgment is Coming." Get it? Because he's a Judge! Take a look at the official poster, which feels a little familiar...
When we were at Comic-Con 2012 in San Diego, we got to see a screening of the upcoming action flick 'Dredd.' While we didn't get a close look at our guy Karl Urban, (duh, 'cause he kept his helmet on for the entire film) we did get a close-up snapshot of Lena Headey as Madeline “Ma-Ma” Madrigal. Let's just say, we were a little more than frightened.
'Dredd' screened for fans at Comic-Con 2012 and it "borders on being a blast" says our review. The audience loved it and now to get fans that didn't make it to Comic-Con (or couldn't get in the screening), Lionsgate has released a bunch of new 'Dredd' pics for you to enjoy.
A few days ago, Karl Urban told the internet that the first footage from the upcoming 'Star Trek 2' would premiere this weekend. To be specific, he promised that a video called "Star Trek Comic Con Sneak Peek" would arrive on YouTube. It turns out that the new "Bones" McCoy and star of 'Dredd' was pulling our leg: the video (which actually is titled "Star Trek Comic Con Sneak Peek") contains about give seconds of behind-the-scenes 'Trek' footage and about four minutes of Urban surfing, amongst other nonsense.
Fresh from Comic-Con 2012, we've got a fantastic new 3D clip from 'Dredd,' the latest adaptation of the classic graphic novel character, starring Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby and Lena Headey.
Karl Urban (at least I think it's Karl Urban -- he never takes off his helmet) hits his one note well, hard and often. As Judge Dredd, he's a stern one-man justice machine in a dystopian megapolis, part of a woefully understaffed police force that zips among enormous city-state, 200 story apartment blocks, threatening a term in an "iso-cube," but mostly bullet-blasting perps in ever resourceful ways. Just when you thought you'd seen every way for brains to splatter across the screen in 3D, 'Dredd' comes up with something new.
