DREDD - Teaser Poster and New Photos
The first teaser poster for Karl Urban's Dredd has been unveiled, and it gives us a simple but dark look at an intimidating Judge Dredd engulfed in shadow. There are also a couple new photos from the movie for you to check out. The movie comes to us from Vantage Point director Pete Travis and 28 Days Later screenwriter Alex Garland. I'm really excited about seeing how this movie turns out, especially after what the comic's creator John Wagner had to say about it after he watched the movie,
I went up to London yesterday to see the completed Dredd film. I’ve had reservations about certain aspects of it, and made them plain to the team at DNA. All but one of them – a little quibble at the beginning – have been addressed. And what a lot they’ve added. Music is on the button. SFX are excellent. Filming is impressive. I’ve not seen a modern 3-D movie before but I like it. I found myself reaching out trying to touch things that were dancing before my eyes.
Karl is a great Dredd and Olivia gets Anderson completely. This is Dredd as it should be done – true to character, visceral, unrelentingly violent (but not off-puttingly so). It will open, I believe, sometime in September. No doubt you’ll let me know what you think when you’ve seen it, but this has my recommendation.
That's a pretty solid seal of approval if you ask me. I imagine we'll end up seeing a trailer sometime soon to give us a taste of what this movie is going to deliver to fans and audiences. Thanks to our friends at Joblo for the poster and images
Here's the new Plot Synopsis:
The future America is an irradiated waste land. On its East Coast, running from Boston to Washington DC, lies Mega City One- a vast, violent metropolis where criminals rule the chaotic streets. The only force of order lies with the urban cops called “Judges” who possess the combined powers of judge, jury and instant executioner. Known and feared throughout the city, Dredd (Karl Urban) is the ultimate Judge, challenged with ridding the city of its latest scourge – a dangerous drug epidemic that has users of “Slo-Mo” experiencing reality at a fraction of its normal speed.
