The year’s forgotten comic book adaption, Dredd, has dropped a few new pics. That’s all well and good, but when are we going to get a trailer or even an official poster? The fact that it’s all being kept so secretive makes me worry, especially with previous reports of unrest behind the scenes. Here’s hoping this is all silly talk and we get footage to enjoy and soon. Anyway, to the pics.
At the top of the page we have Karl Urban’s Dredd running from an explosion. Here we see him with (Psi) Judge Anderson (Olivia Thirlby) raiding an apartment.
Here’s a shot of some other judges – this is Judge Lex, played by Langley Kirkwood.
Lena Headley plays the villain of the piece, the scarred Ma-Ma. She says of her character – “She’s a prostitute who then kills her pimp and takes over his drug-running business… I think of her like an old great white shark who is just waiting for someone bigger and stronger to show up and kill her. She’s ready for it. In fact, she can’t waitfor it to happen. And yet no one can get the job done. She’s an addict, so she’s dead in that way, but that last knock just hasn’t come. This big, fat, scarred shark moving through the sea and everyone flees and she’s like, ‘Will someone just have the balls to do it? Please?”
She also goes onto explain how Dredd will differ from Stallone’s version from the nineties – “The world feels really British, and I don’t know if that’s because it’s so dirty and dark. And it’s … violent. Just in terms of gunplay, they’re not afraid to show blood and gunshot wounds. And it’s set up in this concrete sort of shanty town — it’s shanty but they’re blocks — concrete favelas.”
That last quote gives me hope. Dredd deserves a decent big screen adaption and appears they’re not afraid to go the violent, darker route of the comics.
Dredd is due to hit UK screens on the 21st September.
