has been busy rebooting, rewinding,  and reinventing boyhood comics anti-hero Judge Dredd

for its second outing across the big screen.

It stars

‘Our Karl Urban’ as the ‘unfuckable-with’ protagonist,

porcelain effigy thespian Olivia Thirlby,

as well as that chick from ‘300’.

– which by the way is currently being widely viewed as one of the best action movies to emerge in recent years –

the film ‘Dredd’ follows our helmeted heroes as they make their way

– floor by floor –

up a run-down tower of drug addled perps hell bent on their destruction.

The film

due for release in the coming months

was made outside of the hollywood studio system

relying instead

on funding sourced through the internet.
