Judge Dredd

1

Dont know if there any fans on the board but a 10sec teaser just popped for the upcoming film in advance of the proper trailer hitting tomorrow liking the look they've went for gritty realism, liking the law giver, the voice, helmet I need to see more off and I hope we get a fuck off shot of Mega City1 in the full trailer

Always wondered why a proper Dredd game never got made, the characters & world lends itself perfectly to video games

double whammy

it never compare to the stallone classic :/

0 |

Agree, a game would be fantastic. Looking forward to the film myself!

0 |

I'd heard the director left the filming halfway through this, which is never good. Really looking forward to a darker adaptation.
An oul Cursed Earth game would be great right enough!

Looks badass!

Trailer here... m.youtube.com/watch?de...

Looks nothing like the comic infact the only similarities it shares is the Dredd name ffs, bit disappointed in Mega City 1, doesn't look like it houses a hundred thousand let alone 800million and is too dark & gritty but fuck it I'm a huge 2000AD Fan so I'll take what I can get and it does look pretty good

0 |

Hmmm looks ok I guess. At least stallone isn't in it

Needs judge death in it and the dark judges

0 |

cant see them going with the dark judges tbh if this by some miracle makes money, more likely we'll see the Angel gang and mean machine

which funnily enough Stallones dredd done rather well

0 |

I didn't like the original dredd film. Stallone is a terrible actor and far was too big for the role

By that I mean it becomes a Stallone movie rather than judge dredd if that makes sense

0 |

the original is a guilty pleasure of mine, it really nails some things like the look of megacity 1, the ABC warrior was brilliant as was the Angel gang/cursed earth depiction. Having Stallone on board meant it got a half decent budget for effects which at the time looked superb, even the costume was sorta like the comic in some respects but all in all it was a woeful film and yeah i agree it was a Stallone movie, not a dredd movie and whomever though adding rob schieder shoulda been cubed for like or executed

looks a bit like dredd meets the raid.

always like the dredd batman crossovers

the judgment day 20 part feature they did in 2000AD and the megazine 20 odd yrs ago should be the only story film makers should be trying to adapt. it was epic in scale and had a great story.

this looks a bit meh by the trailer but could be good. there have been rumours of writer, director and cast walk outs the whole way through the shoot. Plus the studio have called back production to do reshoots, never a good sign.

Karl Urban is a good choice imho.

An ABC warrior film would be great but this film needs to avoid as much affiliation with expanded characters from the 1st dredd film as possible and focus on new but familiar ones and make Dredd an absolute in every means possible.........and never EVER have him remove his helmet!

0 |

Removing his helmet in the first one was a joke. Stallone probably demanded it

0 |

Always intended to start reading the Casefiles collections, haven't got round to them yet.

0 |

Judgement day would unfortunately be unlikely :-( would need a helluva budget and cant see Dredd scoring that sorta money for a sequel

The trailer is a bit meh, if it was anything other than dredd id say it was pretty generic looking but worth a ganders, the slo-mo scenes look pretty cool though

And he doesnt take his helmet off btw

0 |

They should get Robbie keane to play the ABC warrior, looks identical

0 |

the studio would not green light the original if the major star was not going to remove his helmet. they couldnt see how it would do well if stallone had a helmet on for 2hrs. plus the story line they chose kinda meant he had to. huge mistake is right.

fingers crossed for this one, i really hope it is good. i went all the way to london for a special advanced screening of the original when i was 15. was heart broken coming out of the cinema!

0 |

I don't like the look of that at all.

0 |

The problem for me with that trailer is it provides me with no connection to the comic. I don't look at it and think wow it's as if the comic was brought to life. I watch it and think standard generic action flick with a character called judge dredd. Will hold off condemning it and prob check it in the cinema unless everyone says its shit

0 |

unless its a major crapfest ill be supporting it at the cinema in the hopes of a sequel but aye it doesnt scream 2000AD in the slightest

I liked the original dredd very much if stallone hadnt insisted on taking the helmet off and taking a lover

0 |

comedy sidekick schnieder was also a fucking no no

0 |

anthrax - i am the law

classic dredd themed metal :)

0 |

Joe Pesci was originally cast in the original but then pulled out.

0 |

HAs Dredd in comic form ever been rebooted or is there a good starting poiit for the comics? This film looks ok. I hope it turns out good though. I love post apocalyptic futures.

0 |

nah hes remained the same 1 dimensional facist judge jury and executioner ever since i started reading him back in high school tbh, i havent followed 2000AD in a few years so he may off but i doubt it

www.amazon.co.uk/Judge... as good a place as any to start

Thanks RJ.

Judge Dredd is essentially, judge dredd haha. Unwavering cunt. This looks awful............

I'd agree with liking the first bar the helmet, love interest and schneider debacle. Real pity. ABC warrior movie would rock so much........

One of the best Judge Dredd's you'll read is judgement in gotham where he's against batman.

0 |

fanastic artwork in that Gotham one from my fav 2000AD artisti Simon Bisley

0 |

Bisley is the man and from belfast. Always a plus. Have alot of his material. Him and alan grant are great together.

0 |

He did an amazing one shot constantine, not so long ago, and has been doing all the covers for deathstroke in the DC new 52. Top stuff.

0 |

Judgement on Gotham was one of the best graphic novels ever - good call! Judging (pardon the pun) by that trailer, the new dredd film looks awful! That bit when he goes "its judging time" is cringe! The Stallone film was awful but they did stay pretty faithful to a famous comic story, albeit making a complete hash of it! I've not seen this story in any comics so that would be another minus point already.

0 |

I think that trailer looks decent enough!
Block wars ftw

0 |

the tone of the trailer is spot on as is the slo-mo but if you took the helmet off you wouldnt think it was a judge dredd movie set in MC1

0 |

Who directs it? What else has he done?

0 |

he directed Vantage Point which was alright

0 |

It looks like a sci fi copy of the raid.

0 |

Vantage point is tripe, haha.

0 |

known facebook film critic vs michael bay fanboi,

know who opinion i'll be taking ha

0 |

do i need to bring up badboys again or do you really like Kevs arty farty black & white romanian films about potatoe growers

0 |

Some good romanian films out there!

Same director made omagh and end game which are ok. This still looks shit. Shit cast aswell .Karl fucking Urban as Dredd? Piss off.

0 |

Actually Karl Urban is the one decent thing about this movie

0 |

Karl Urban ftw yo

0 |

Why?

0 |

He has the build, the look and acting chops to
pull off a persona like Dredd, he seems to be playing the same part he played in Riddick albeit with helmet permanently on

0 |

He's done a few good films and a majority shit. His face kind of works, but i don't think he's mean enough looking at all.
