A new image of Dredd has just been released - and's got an exclusive look at the still.

The film, which is due in October this year and is based on a long running British satirical comic, is the latest film to star Kiwi Karl Urban.

Urban takes the lead role of Dredd and will be hoping to banish the ghost of the Stallone film from the mid 90s.

Along with the new image, details of the story have been released too:

Dredd, a futuristic cop combines the power of judge, jury and executioner in Mega City One, a massive city that stretches down the entire East coast of America.  The endlessly inventive minds of writer Alex Garland and director Pete Travis bring DREDD (played by Karl Urban) to life in a futuristic neo-noir action film that returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner's and Carlos Ezquerra's revered comic strip.

Dredd hits Kiwi cinemas on October 4th.
