I am the law! Ooh this is finally starting to look awesome, at least I think it might turn out pretty good. The latest "Heroes of 2012" issue of Empire magazine is packed with a whole bunch of new photos from the upcoming Dredd movie, starring Karl Urban as the new Judge Dredd. We just got a first look last week, but now we have multiple shots of Dredd kickin' ass, and a few other Judge's, including Olivia Thirlby as the young Judge Cassandra Anderson. The scans come from 2000AD/Bleeding Cool and are worth seeing, as this is looking better with more gritty shots like this. Though Dredd seems quite unhappy. Check ’em out!

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 ‚Äď 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 US release date is set, but we'll definitely keep you updated. Awesome?

    "Though Dredd seems quite unhappy"...The first picture on the upper left: Seriously, it look's as if he's about to burst into tears. Did he just finish watching E.T. or something ūüėÄ Ohh, poor little Dreed...
    • Steven
      I would think he's just finished watching Stallone's film...

      He's just waiting for the glue to dry in his helmet so it will stop falling forward

      ...and I was thinking how fucking fantastically Judge Dredd like that photo was
  • Loser
     Gone from very negative to mildly positive for every image and the movie i believe will be cool so I hope for that. It can not be worse than Stallones crap version and I am a big fan of Stallone

  • BinaryChaos
    Because they throw dirt, a few scratches and make him look grumpy doesn't promise a good movie. It looks more like a smoke screen to me but who am I to judge the Dredd himself, lol. Give me a trailer and I'll draw up a better conclusion since now a days comic book movies throw all the plot plus action scenes in one little trailer.

    Where's the eagle shoulder pads?
  • James England
    The uniform is not remotely faithful. In fact, if you're a Dredd purist, the new uniform is insulting. Dredd looks like a Judge, not some paramilitary soldier - which is the look they've gone for in the new film. The lack of reasonably sized shoulder pads is a huge admission. And yes, it's not that credible to think Judges have very scratched uniforms and helmets. I would imagine it's the opposite, they would try to keep them clean to set a good example. Dredd is a bit of a stickler when it comes to appearance so I can't see him wearing a scratched helmet. Grim and gritty may not be Dredd's world at all. In fact you get heavy cube time for littering in Mega-City 1 so I doubt there's much dirt and grime. I always imagined Dredd's world to be quite clean and shiny, well, apart from city bottom. Grim and gritty is less expensive to reproduce in a film. Shiny high tech stuff costs more to make. Just for the record, the leaked screenplay contains NO ROBOTS so it's a low tech version of Mega-City 1.

      McMahon was Dirty - Bolland was shiny.  Get over your self righteousness and enjoy the fact that they are making another go at it.  Until it becomes completely CGI - you will not be happy

        Bang on.
    • lando
      simon Beazly (?) did a pretty dirty dredd...
    • Rick B
      IIRC it actually reminds me of the uniform in the first ever Dredd story. The original uniform did have a smaller badge and shoulder pads as seen here. It was only later that those parts of the uniform became more bulky.
  • jah p
    Looks good, I hope the new Judge is sucessful so we could possibly get an ABC Warriors movie!
  • Hesik
    I find that quote so fucking funny and try-hard marketing to sell his fucking film when he says "Batman's worst day is Dredd's average day" FUCK YOU man, quit trying to better something average at best, to sell your fucking movie, Urban
  • Joesmice
    He's trying to make the Sly face. He's way too small too lol. Its Judge Dredd tho its not like im gonna really do an in depth review on this when i see it.
  • Cracky
    I am ready for this. 
  • Rock

  • edwaard
    I like Carl Urban, he has been in good movies ghost ship and doom. this judge dred film will be as good as the first dred film that was ace.
  • Chris
    They should have shown a photo of him smiling - given all the Dredd purists palpitations, just for lols.
  • hahaha the helmet! You make me think of the past.
  • Bubbab
    Why does Judge Dredd need to be remade?
  • Arcadiasfx
    he looks WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY too young.  Dredd is supposed to be around 70 years old, like if Harry Callahan had never turned in his spurs...
  • jah p
    I hope Hammerstein is in this!!
  • Moogmoo
    Dredd was in his 30s when he first appeared in 2000AD. Be a bit dumb to make a new Dredd film with a 70 year old Dredd. What a silly idea that would be!
  • Moogmoo
    What you lot are ignoring.... URBAN HAS NO DREDD CHIN. Nonewhatsoever. Totally miscast from a visual point of view. Hilariously wrong.
  • Dreddfan
    Proof he is totally miscast appearance-wise: Sorry but it's laughable to think Urban looks like Dredd. Totally wrong looking for the part. 
    • redguy
      the drawn dredd looks like a bar thug :)
  • Gh
    he has no muscles.....For his activity, he should
  • Sven
    No Judge Death . . . no care :)
  • Kiloskree
    the helmet STAYS on, right?
  • i'm a huge 2000ad fan and i think this looks ace, the uniform reminds me of the very early issues drawn by Carlos Ezquerra, the fact they also consulted with John Wagner should help also.
    • Fink
      Hear hear!
  • Johnny cage
    this dude looks like steven seagel !!
  • stansfilmposterz
    Anything has to be better than Danny Cannon's Dredd, I'm not anal but I waited years to see that film and went to the 1st showing and upon Dredd saying 'I am the Law'...well I almost walked out.  They tried to cram too much in, blame De Souza for that.  This new one is low budget but has to be better and will be I am sure.
  • Don
    @stansfilmposterz. Agree Danny Cannon back in the 90s made a complete hash of it. (Btw whatever happened to him) Stallone was the biz for the role  - although Dredd purists screamed that the majority of the film had Stallone without the helmet therefore unfaithful to the comic. I truly dread (pun intended) this remake and probably the knell of Karl Urban's career.
  • snsfilmposterz
    Still wont be as bad as Cannon's rather busy busy effort.  I've just read the screenplay that you can download 'Peachtrees' Judge Dredd screenplay' & I think it's the real deal?  The script is pretty close to how Dredd is if it's the real thing which I think it is.  The funny thing is with a Dredd movie you've got you've got a really difficult charachter to bring to life and get the audience to like.  People like me & perhaps yourself have grown up with Dredd (I'm 42) and have seen the changes in him over the years and respect the persona for what and who he is but if you were to put him in his entirety on to the screen any studio would have a problem..It's a difficult one thats for sure. I reckon if this is a success then the next Dredd movie in a franchise would be a killer. 
  • they look ridiculous, helmet to face proportion is off, looks like a guy going to comic-con in gear he knocked together in the garage.
  • mewhite you
    Not a judge movie Sylvester stallon did a horrible job on the first one
  • Pdickinson69
    I guess we'll be the Judge of it at the end of the day!
  • Alex
    So, Rob Schneider isn't in this? I guess fans of the comic were upset Stallone took off his helmet, despite the fact that Dredd never did in the comic. I don't know if that's a good idea. I hope they play that Anthrax song in this. That was a great album.
  • I Got Bupkis
    Hey, it's got to be a major improvement on the freakin'  Sly version of it.
  • terry wrist
    i for one would like to see the unseen JAWS pics. i hope they include "I am The Law" by anthrax for the soundtrack, that would kick ass.
