Comics creators to introduce Dredd 3D screening
24 September 2012
DCA is delighted to be welcoming Alan Grant, Al Ewing, Colin Macneil and Cam Kennedy, all of whom worked on the Judge Dredd comic series, to a special screening of Dredd 3D on Fri 28 September. The writers will be available for a book signing at 20:00 before introducing the 20:45 screening of the film and taking part in a Q&A afterwards.
Pete Travis' adaptation, with a script by Alex Garland, returns Dredd to the dark, visceral incarnation of the original source material. Karl Urban takes the title role as one of a fearsome group of 'Judges' tasked with keeping order in the violent metropolis of Mega City One. When he and rookie Cassandra Anderson are trapped in a 200 storey slum controlled by vicious drug lord Ma-Ma (Lena Headey), they must confront the odds and battle for their survival.
