With roots in the popular comic strip, “Dredd 3D” takes place in the future, when America lies in ruins and most of the population is addicted to the drug Slo-Mo, a substance with the power to make you feel as though time is going by at 1% its normal speed. With a monopoly on Slo-Mo and some ruthless business policies, Ma-Ma (Lena Headey) maintains full control over her tower, Peach Trees. When Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) is called to investigate a murder in the block, both he and his rookie sidekick, Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), must fight their way up the tower to hand down judgment.
“Dredd 3D” certainly stormed its way into the Regal Union Square theater last night. Despite torrential downpours and gusty winds, Urban and Thirlby as well as producer Allon Reich and writer Alex Garland hit the red carpet to chat about the adaptation process, shooting it in 3D and, the most important of all, what Judge Dredd does in his free time.
