DREDD is hitting theaters in about a month and as we near the film's release date, more information is beginning to leak -- and it doesn't look half bad. A new clip for DREDD has been released and it focuses pretty squarely on Ma-Ma's character, played by actress Lena Headey. Don't be fooled by Ma-Ma's timid voice over the intercom -- this woman means business. The former prostitute and leader of "the block" locks down the entire neighborhood until the two Judges have been eradicated.
With all the doors on the block locked and all civilians hiding behind doors, the Judges don't have a whole heck of a lot of places to run to. You can probably guess what happens next. The scene seems pretty critical to the plot itself, and might remind you of a little known Indonesian film titled The Raid: Redemption, from 2011. Those that saw the film about a 20-man SWAT team who raids a run down apartment block might see the similarities between the two films. Having seen this scene, do you think there will be enough differences between the two movies that will merit giving DREDD its own look? Do they seem at all similar to you? Do you think Ma-Ma is a threatening character?
Let us know what you think of the recently released DREDD clip and whether or not you will be heading to the theater to check out the movie on September 21st, 2012.
