Lionsgate’s highly anticipated comic book adaptation Dredd – in theaters September 21 (U.S., the U.K. will have it September 7) – will attempt to wash away any lingering aftertaste from Sylvester Stallone’s poor received 1995 Judge Dredd (which, incidentally, debuts on Blu-ray September 18). Here’s the final poster design:

Hopefully this is far better than British director Pete Travis’ previous theatrical film, 2008’s ensemble thriller Vantage Point. Travis has been primarily a television director so far in his career, so he obviously has a lot riding on the modestly-budgeted (reportedly only $45 million) Dredd.

Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games, X-Men: First Class) stars in the upcoming horror-thriller House at the End of the Street. Relativity Media has released a new trailer for the film, which also stars Elisabeth Shue and Max Thieriot.

Ex-disc jockey-turned-film director Mark Tonderai directed House at the End of the Street, his second film following his 2008 feature-length debut Hush.

It’s been 28 years since the original Red Dawn goosed audiences who were fearful of a Soviet Union invasion. The remake – in theaters November 21 – updates the concept, making North Korea the bad guys (originally it was going to be China, but that deemed unwise and was changed mid-production – according to Bryan Alexander of USA Today, the North Korean enemies get an assist from China and Russia). Open Road Films and FilmDistrict have released the first images from the film, which stars Chris Hemsworth.

 Red Dawn will hit theaters November 21, 2012.
