In a move which is calculated to cheer up/terminally depress the “2000AD”/Judge Dredd fan in your life, new stills have been emerging from the Pete Travis-directed “Dredd” movie, scheduled for a September 2012 release.
More images at 2000AD’s blog – slightly NSFW as one of them features Anderson shooting some dude’s brains out. Charming. And I thought she was the civilised one…
Whether the grittier images shown thus far will do much to convince the Dredd hardcore about the validity of this new film is anybody’s guess – I suspect that nothing, shy of the technology becoming available to allow us to each make our own pet projects on a computer, will please some folks.
I didn’t love “Dredd” director Pete Travis’ previous film, “Vantage Point”, but he did at least demonstrate with that conspiracy thriller that he was handy with on-screen action and pacing, if not with making that thriller’s ponderous, “Groundhog Day”-style, time and perspective schtick anything less than criminally annoying.
It’s in 3D – as is The Law, nowadays – and surely should be due a trailer any day now.
