Get shot in the face with this Dredd red-band clip

I think the mad minds behind the upcoming Dredd (I refuse to call it Dredd 3D) came up with the drug SLO-MO strictly so they could show cool violence in the third dimension.

And you know what? After watching the below red-band clip from Lionsgate, I'm OK with that . . . CGI blood and all.

Some of our British friends, including Jon Cross over at the glorious After Movie Diner, aren't sold on the new Dredd. I am, strictly because I've liked what I've seen so far -- this red-band clip included -- and nothing can be worse than Stallone's mid-90s Judge Dredd movie. Plus this version was written by Alex Garland, who penned 28 Days Later and Sunshine, two of my favourite Danny Boyle movies.

And guess what? Dredd was written and went into production before The Raid, which many have compared the film's plot too.

As for said storyline: In a violent, futuristic city where the police have the authority to act as judge, jury and executioner, a cop (Judge Dredd bitches!) teams with a trainee to take down a gang that deals the reality-altering drug, SLO-MO.

Dredd is unleashed in theatre Sept. 21. You can watch the red-band clip right now. So do it!
