New Set Photos from Director Pete Travis' Dredd Adaptation

There's been no word on when the first trailer for director Pete Travis' (Vantage Point, Endgame) Dredd will be released, but we're starting to get a pretty good idea of what the movie will look like thanks to the still images that have been trickling out over the past several months and the poster that was released last week.
Now, we have our first look behind the scenes of the production, courtesy of 2000 AD Online, the 'net presence for the British comic book that first introduced the world to Joseph Dredd way back in March 1977. The site posted three set photos that offer the best look yet at Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby in costume as Dredd and Anderson, respectively, two of the bad-ass law-dogs known as "Judges" who patrol the mean streets of Mega City One with the power to act as police, judge, jury and executioner.
Dredd was produced by Academy Award-winning director Danny Boyle's (Slumdog Millionaire) DNA Films. The script, described by Judge Dredd co-creator John Wagner as a "high-octane slay ride through the dark underbelly of the vast future city," was written by Alex Garland (28 Days Later). The cast includes Lena Heady as the villainous Ma-Ma, Langley Kirkwood as Judge Lex and Deobia Oparei as Judge T.J. Alvarez.
