It feels as if Judge Dredd has been in production forever now. The tale of an uncompromising lawman and a city on the verge of anarchy wrapped up shooting a while back, dealt with some controversy in the editing and titles booth, but general impressions reveal that the film, while not a contender for the Oscars, is going to be a decent action ride that remains faithful to the source material.The first trailer will also arrive on Thursday for the film, and I’ve got R50 down that Karl Urban can shout “I AD DE LOOOOAAHHH!” better than a certain other, expendable actor can.
Ah 1995, what a year you were for films back then.
While we await those pictures in eager anticipation, enjoy these new set pics of Dredd and Judge Anderson, portrayed by Olivia Thirlby.
DREDD takes us to the wild streets of Mega City One, the lone oasis of quasi-civilization on Cursed Earth. Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) is the most feared of elite Street Judges, with the power to enforce the law, sentence offenders and execute them on the spot – if necessary.
