Another Image of Karl Urban Suited Up to Deliver Justice as 'Dredd'

July 18, 2011

We've already gotten a bit of a fuzzy look at Karl Urban decked out in full wardrobe for Dredd, and an even less official look at his lawmaster bike that will definitely see some action in the flick. Now another image of Urban suited up to deliver justice, and while it's still not a perfect shot of our hero, it's still another look at what should be an interesting adaptation of the comic. With these photos surfacing, I'm wondering why we're not getting a glimpse at the film at Comic-Con this year. That'd be a nice surprise for fans. But for now, this is as good as it gets, and we're stuck waiting for the first footage of Urban kicking ass as Dredd.

Here's another look at Karl Urban in Dredd courtesy of Bleeding Cool:

Judge Dredd

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. The endlessly inventive mind of writer Alex Garland and the frenetic vision of director Peter Travis bring Dredd to life as a futuristic neo-noir action film that returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra’s revered comic strip. No release date is set, but we'll definitely keep you updated. Thoughts?

    Not exactly the best picture to promote this film...looks like he's about to cry under that enormous helmet of his.

      Looks like he is wearing his daddy's helmet!

    It does look too big there, like a modified lid for a motorbike.  Not as disquieting as the bike, but still, not good.

    That helmet is too big for his head.
  • Sammickey
    I hope this will be a good remake. I think he can pull it off if the director dont screw it up.

    the helmet is fine and looks good. 
  • redguy
    oh cmon, finish it up already i want to see it. if it has the script i read 1 year ago, it will be solid.
  • Well at least it WILL be better than the other one.
  • Lagoya
    His helmet looks shit. Stallone looked better as dredd.
  • Jpeters1138
    Its so hard to have hope for this movie. There are some comics and films that are just really hard to pull off. Dredd in real life will look silly no matter what. Just like Green Lantern, its nobodies fault that it doesn't transfer from page to film well, it just doesn't. I'm a fan of Urban and I'm sure he'll give it his all, I just don't think it'll do any better with itself than the Stallone version.
    • Candle_Wick
      Totally agree with this. Dredd's on-page image is often so wild that he's always going to look daft in 'real life'.  However, the treatment of Bane (another impossible 'real life' character) has a promising precedent, and this looks pretty gritty and appealing overall.
  • Stallone is God
    is it just me or does judge dredd look a lot more like captain falcon in these photos. I'm waiting for kirby to pop out somewhere.
  • Tyler Bush
    Are they going to remake every movie ever made? It sure seems like they are....
    •  It's based on a long-running comic series, so it's not really a movie remake. It's just a different adaptation of the source material.
