I will happily admit to be rather excited about seeing director Pete Travis’ new take of the Judge Dredd character, and even though all the images seen so far don’t exactly give much away, the film is looking nice and gritty. Dredd himself looks a right moody old sod, and I doubt we will be seeing the silliness brought to the story by Stallone’s hellish version. With any luck, Dredd will do the character justice.
As is becoming the norm these days, a teaser trailer for the upcoming proper teaser trailer arrived online earlier today, and we have it right here for you, all eleven seconds of it!! There isn’t really much to talk about, but what you do get to see is quite cool, with Dredd muttering the words “negotiations over” at the end. The dark tone to the clip is impressive too, and hopefully this is a good indication of how the final film will look. You will get the chance to see the full length teaser trailer when it arrives tomorrow, and we will be bringing it to you as soon as we can!
Pete Travis directs from a script written by Carlos Ezquerra and Alex Garland. Karl Urban will be playing Dredd, and he will be supported by Olivia Thirlby, Lena Headey, Domhnall Gleeson, Santi Scinelli and Jason Cope.
Dredd arrives in UK cinemas 7th September.
