The upcoming Dredd reboot looks to be one of the darkest, bloodiest comic book-based films we've seen in ages—and some new footage shows just how violent it will be.

A featurette released by Yahoo! UK shows off quite a bit of new footage, and director Pete Travis pulls no punches with a motorcycle chase and violent shootout that looks bone-crunchingly good. Some interviews with folks who worked on the film, and the comics, also shed some light on the man behind the mask (err, helmet).

This flick definitely looks to earn its hard-R rating, and stars Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby and Lena Headey look the part in this gritty adaptation of Mega-City One.

Check out the footage below.
