Today was the big debut of the Dredd remake's trailer. It's beautifully shot and designed like that other 90s remake Total Recall. They both have tough guy leads and hot girls as heroes and villains. But this post is not about comparing those two future blockbuster hits. It's about a specific scene in the trailer that appears to be a sneak peek of the second half of the film, where futuristic law enforcement agent Judge Dredd infiltrates a tenement building filled with murders, thieves, and drug addicts who follow the orders of a drug king pin who refers to herself as Ma-Ma (pronounced maw-maw). In the scene, she says, "This is Ma-Ma. Somewhere in this block are two judges. I want 'em dead." Then we're shown a shot of the hollowed-out center of the building and the seemingly endless floors peppered with armed sociopaths.
The Raid: Redemption. In it, a SWAT team infiltrates a tenement building (sounding familiar?) and gets trapped inside as an army of thugs and killers, who live there, follow the orders of a ruthless mobster to attack them. He says, "Good morning. We have some guests trawling the halls today. Now go to work! And please, enjoy yourself." Super close right?
