That lovestruck citizen returned at least once and possibly twice.

It ended badly for her. Very badly.
I think that story was called Futile Attraction.

What doesn't end badly (but fairly) in Megacity? Even Christmas isn't sacred. Except I guess for that story where the humans show a Mutie the real meaning of Christmas. And then Dredd arrested them for having fake toiletries

Oooh I like that pic.

I thought Stallone looked great with the mask on. I wonder what accent Urban will use? 2000AD was a British invention but I don't know what continent it was all set in.

I think he looks really good as well. Can't wait until they show the first pic of Anderson, she was really my favorite character from the script.

America. Always found that fact interesting.

Mega City One occupies a large chunk of the US north east coast.

i believe it extends from Washington DC to north of New York...

Okay, I sound like the sort of nerd I usually bemoan - but an unshaven Dredd? Hmmm.

Other than that, looks pretty perfect, I hasten to add!

Dredd's razor nicked his neck last time he tried to shave, and he convicted it of attempted murder.

Re: The Law Returns. This Time With His Helmet On! Judge Dredd!

According to the blurb this is a shot from rehearsals, not footage from the film proper. I expect he'll be clean shaven when he's in full costume and make-up, fret not.

As for the image itself, I'm liking what I'm seeing so far. They've clearly toned down the colour pallet, which should work just fine on film and I love that the Lawgiver is almost identical to the current design in the comics. Plus the helmet is spot on...if a little too big. I'm sure it's just a prototype though. Not sure why exactly but I do miss the badge chain. I realise it's only decorative and would probably get in the way during action scenes but it looks odd without it.
They're clearly going for a more functional then decorative design for the uniform, similar in general principle to Nolan's Batman costume. They've really scaled back on the shoulder pads, but then that massive eagle was never going to be practical. Remember how Stallone repeatedly ditched that whole piece at the earliest opportunity? Bloody thing must have been very restrictive.

I think the initial intent was for Dredd to be something of a parody of the hard bitten American anti-heroes of the 70's (Dirty Harry leaps to mind) and post-apocalyptic fiction in general. Of course it's long since evolved FAR beyond that, but I think that was the starting point. Plus who the hell wants to read about post apocalyptic Milton Keynes?

I imagine he'd use something non-specific but broadly American. Not sure if they'll use it at all (the Stallone film only made a token effort) but the vernacular of Mega-City One is pretty unique. Mostly it's the usual trick of invented swear words so they don't get in trouble with the drokking censors...still it'd be nice to hear the odd "stomm" out of the creeps and for Jovis H Grud to get a mention.

Looks like a ten yr old wearing dad's helmet. Hope they fix that.

That looks way better than the Stallone uniform. That one was a bit too bright. The toned down colors are better.

Jovus Drokk, surely?

(for those unfamilair with it all, Grud, Drokk and Stomm were reputedly the first three Troglodyte workers to die in the construction of the city wall, and so were immortalised as the three main curse-words...)

Dredd also notoriously hates beards, so that fuzz on Urban's chin hopefully shouldn't be there on screen

^ Yes, I've also read on other sites that this is just a test shot, not actual footage, so he will be smooth-chinned in the movie.
