Watch: Guns, Drugs, Belly Fat and Blood in New ‘Dredd’ Red Band Clip

Dredd screened for fanboys down at the San Diego Comic Con recently and they all responded with glowing reviews, and now a red band clip from the film has arrived online featuring plenty of blood, bullets and belly fat.

Skimming through the clip the one thing I will give it credit for is its use of the negative space below the frame in order to present a greater 3-D impact. Granted, this is happening in the midst of a slow-mo scene of CG blood splatter that seems as uninspired as anything we’ve seen in Zack Snyder’s Watchmen and Sucker Punch and anyone else that has tried to mimic Snyder’s time-bending technique in preference for style over substance.

Dredd is a new adaptation centered on the character Judge Joe Dredd created by writer John Wagner and artist Carlos Ezquerra from the British science fiction anthology “2000 AD”. The story centers on Dredd (Karl Urban), an American law enforcement officer in a violent city of the future where uniformed Judges combine the powers of police, judge, jury and executioner. Dredd and his fellow Judges are empowered to arrest, sentence and even execute criminals on the spot.
