New Images of Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby in Adaptation of 'Dredd'
Despite the early first look photos and some more recent official pictures from the set of Dredd, the new adaptation of the comic book series, we've still yet to see one frame of real footage in the form of a trailer or even a behind-the-scenes sneak peek. That might be due to the drama that has been rumored to take place in the editing room (though the filmmakers debunked that shortly thereafter news broke), but we can't be sure. What we can be sure of is the film likely hitting harder than Sylvester Stallone's take as we see some new images from the film with Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby and one guy on the wrong end of justice.
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 US release date is set, but we'll definitely keep you updated. Awesome?
