Yahoo! Movies has posted the final poster for "DREDD," the upcoming film based on the popular 2000 AD character, starring Karl Urban as Judge Dredd and Olivia Thirlby as Judge Anderson. The poster shows Urban as Judge Dredd standing over MegaCity-One as buildings burn in the background.

Urban spoke with CBR News at Comic-Con International 2012 about the portrayal of his character in the upcoming film and Dredd's relationship with Thirlby's Judge Anderson.

"There's also shades of compassion and humanity when [Dredd] chooses the stun setting over the kill setting. He's doing it for a particular reason," Urban told CBR. "When he becomes unhinged and he lets the rage and the violence within him finally come out after the massacre sequence of the film. His feelings about Judge Anderson. He's a constant throughout the film. Everybody else is changing and moving but he's just sort of driving through this. He's just solid."

Check out the poster below and stay tuned for more on "DREDD."
