We’ve not heard too much from the Dredd production team for a while, and with only four months separating us from being welcomed to Mega-City One with a punch in the face and long stretch in an iso-cube here is the first push of what is expected to be a ton of promotion for Pete Travis’s film.

What we have for you today is the first look at Lena Headey as the wonderfully named Madeline ‘Ma-Ma’ Madrigal whose drug gang propels the film’s narrative as they infuse the chaotic ramble with a new drug called SLO-MO. Also up for the eyeballs in the gallery below are a few more pics of the chinned wonde himself.

The Playlist gathered up the images from Kinopoisk and an interview from Hero Complex in which Headey talks about her character and the tone of the film,

She’s a prostitute who then kills her pimp and takes over his drug-running business. And Ma-Ma is a bit of a man-hater.

The world [in the film] feels really British, and I don’t know if that’s because it’s so dirty and dark…And it’s…violent. Just in terms of gunplay, they’re not afraid to show blood and gunshot wounds. And it’s set up in this concrete sort of shanty town — it’s shanty but they’re blocks — concrete favelas.

Headey also did a Facebook chat with fans,

MaMa is American. It was the darkest character I have played to date…”
