New Judge Dredd Photos Give Us Better Look At Anti-Hero In Action
So far, Dredd looks unhappy. Thatís to be expected, I guess. Dudeís name is Dredd, after all. Smiles would be abnormal. But Karl Urbanís taking the intensity of the Judge Dredd role to heart in the promotional materials weíve seen so far, including four new photos that recently surfaced online at 200AD.com. We have them below:
The blonde is Olivia Thirlby, best known for playing Ellen Pageís best friend in Juno. She has been cast as Cassandra Anderson, a rookie judge who, we assume, is training under Urbanís Dredd. Damn, that last image is graphic. Iím not sure what Dreddís firing at in the first photo, but it looks like he absolutely capped that dude whoís dead at the top of the stairs. And, not of encouragement to fans, he has his helmet on in every single shot weíve seen so far. So maybe Hollywood did learn from the mistakes of the Sylvester Stallone version.
Then again, thatís Judge Dredd creator John Wagner promised in a recent interview. He said he has confidence that this new take will work. And if we canít trust Wagnerís word on it, who can we believe?
As we reported, Pete Travis (Vantage Point) is tackling this new Dredd, with Urban (Star Trek) in the hulking lead. Lena Headley, Langley Kirkwood and Domhnall Gleeson co-star in a story that reportedly has Dredd and Anderson going after a gang that peddles a reality-altering drug known as SLO-MO. Dredd reaches theaters on Sept. 21.
