It’s not due in theaters until September 21st, but Lionsgate has already released the first trailer from their new flick “Dredd.”

Starring Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby and Lena Headey, the action thriller was written by Alex Garland and will be shown in 2D and 3D as well.

The futuristic “Dredd” centers on a newly-formed violent metropolis called Mega City One, situated between New York City and Washington DC, where Judges can arrest, convict, and execute lawbreakers.

Per the synopsis, “During a routine day on the job, Dredd is assigned to train and evaluate Cassandra Anderson, a rookie with powerful psychic abilities thanks to a genetic mutation. A heinous crime calls them to a neighborhood where fellow Judges rarely dare to venture- a 200 story vertical slum controlled by prostitute turned drug lord Ma-Ma and her ruthless clan. When they capture one of the clan's inner circle, Ma-Ma overtakes the compound's control center and wages a dirty, vicious war against the Judges that proves she will stop at nothing to protect her empire. With the body count climbing and no way out, Dredd and Anderson must confront the odds and engage in the relentless battle for their survival.”
