New Poster and Stills from Dredd
06.08.12 by Chris
Thanks to the bomb that was Sylvestar Stallone's 1995 Judge Dredd, the bar is set pretty low for the reboot Dredd. But given what we've seen so far, we think the bar should be raised. Still awaiting a trailer, today we got a look at the movie's first poster, courtesy of Joblo.com, showing Karl Urban as the title character draped in darkness, teasingly revealing his Dredd uniform with the tagline: "Judgement is Coming." The site also posted two new stills from the movie.
The latest adaptation follows a "day in the life" of Judge Dredd as he patrols the futuristic Mega City One with his telepathic rookie partner, Judge Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), tracking down a gang that deals with the reality-altering drug, SLO-MO.
Looks like this gritty adaptation should wash away that awful taste that Stallone's Dredd left in everyone's mouth.
Dredd was written by Alex Garland (28 Days Later, Sunshine) and directed by Pete Travis (Vantage Point, Endgame).
