New Images of Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby in Adaptation of 'Dredd'

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.

Here are the new photos from Pete Travis' Dredd from 2000 AD (via ComingSoon):

Dredd - Judge Dredd

Dredd - Urban and Thirlby Guns Drawn

Dredd - Judge Dredd Machine Gunning

Dredd - Olivia Thirlby Delivering 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?

For some reason it makes me think of Spaceballs....

It just does not look right. Looks like a Tefal head under that bonnet.

1000% agreed, the helmet just looks wrong, too big for his head and shoulders. I guess they want to keep close to the comic style but they've made Urban look weirdly proportioned :/

Olivia Thirlby, looks terrible. The gun seems so foreign in her hands. And I think she might be high in that second picture!?

Its funny how awkward she looks holding it. By her stance, I don't see how she just put a round through that dude's head.

I bet she gives great helmet

He does not look happy wearing that stupid helmet!

Wow...now we have a bunch of ballistic experts trying apply the theory of trajectory to determine the path of a bullet from a still photograph on a movie site. They may be your "opinions" but they suck regardless. And by the way, InfamousP8nt, did you happen to consider her awkwardness with the weapon is apart of the story?? Maybe her character is some wet nosed rookie, who is paired with Dredd unknowing of his violent nature and is forced to do shit she's never had to do before? These are just the first few batch of pics, let's try and keep a little optimism here. Just saying.

Hey Foxhound, don't be such a dick. Speaking for myself, it wasn't my "opinion" that she looks awkward, clearly she does. And it doesn't take a ballistics expert to tell that she didn't just fire into that guy's skull. Not like it matters, as I'm sure it's probably Dredd who shot him, or someone else not in view. I was merely commenting on the strangeness of that still. And you're probably right regarding her role as a wet-nosed rookie. Anyway, calm down and save your snobby bullshit for someone who cares.

Anderson looks that way because in the film she is a mere wet-behind-the-ears rookie who hasn't been made a Judge yet, and that still is taken from a scene early in the movie when she performs her first bust with Dredd in Mega-City One! The pics look great, the script (at least an early draft leaked online) is pretty darn good, and Karl Urban is going to own this role, don't make assumptions until you see the final product, or at least, the trailer(s), give it a chance you cynics...

The only fault I see is Olivia Thirlby standing next to Humpty Dumpty in that second pic.  I mean, the helmet looks so..so bulbous (that's what she said!)

Can we get an ABC Warriors movie please!

jah p on Feb 6, 2012

Haha ABC warriror movie would be awesome but I'm waiting for the trailer and tell you the truth the images look good, looks like they going to stick with the dark themes of the comic series.

Rick Moranis called; he wants his helmet back.

I actually really like this. It's got this sweet 80's vibe to it like Robocop or They Live.  Also the helmet is supposed to be a bit big. It's that off-kilter absurdity that is the world of Judge Dredd

It doesn't feel right, it should be much darker...

I can't believe it! I'm surrounded by assholes!

I hope and believe it will be a better film but they screwed the pooch in costume design. I reckon Dredd will need a neck brace for carrying all that weight on his head. It has its own gravitational field and he needs to get the brasso to his suit. No excuse for the dirtyness.....

Looks Like Dread is a Midget,, 5'5" is the new Tall in Hollywood. Heaven forbid being taller than the women..
