Investigating an heinous crime, the pair are called to a fortresslike tenement that most cops won’t dare enter, eventually apprehending a member of the inner circle of prostitute-turned-druglord Ma-Ma’s (Lena Headey) operation. Ma-Ma soon forces them to fight for their lives as she takes over the command center of the building and sets loose its inhabitants on the two officers.
Take a look at the poster above, and a pair of images below. Dredd opens nationwide September 21, 2012.
