Oook, I was afraid of that. Karl just doesn't have the jawline to play Dredd.

And Judge Dredd (what I read of it, it's been years honestly) was definitely set in America.

Mega City One and Mega City Two are festering hellholes of depravity and criminality, while the interior is populated by inbred psycho hillbillies and mutant dinosaurs, providing an perfectly accurate picture of how Blue State America views Red State America and vice versa.

I liked Stallone's Dredd.

It's funny to think that Urban has played Dr 'Bones' McCoy and now Dredd. You can't imagine DeForest Kelley playing Dredd or Sylvester Stallone as Bones - or either of them as LORT's Eomer!

His chin and jawline look fine (minus the stubble), it's just that the test helmet itself is too big and clunky.

^As I said, given that it's a test shot the helmet was probably just a prototype, possibly made before he was even cast.

That's why I called it a test helmet.

Ah, missed the "test" part! That's what happens when you skim read.

I agree the helmet look clunky (it's only a test), but even if they went with it, I'd still go see this. Urban was the best actor in ST:XI and could be a great Dredd.

Me too. I liked that whole film, in fact. I hope it gets a decent DVD release someday.

I rather liked it too and as a film on it's own merits, it was OK. But that's all.
As an adaptation of Judge Dredd on the other hand, it was pretty damn poor and not because he took off the helmet or any nonsense like that (though it hardly helped) but as I've said before it was just a Stallone vehicle that bore only a paltry resemblance to the source material.

I would be interested in a decent DVD release though as I gather there was quite a lot left on the cutting room floor, some of it quite noticeably absent. The fight with the partially grown clones near the end for example; you see them hatch and then it just cuts away.

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

Stallone gave an interview recently...or maybe it was a few months ago where he talked about "Judge Dredd" and stated some of the things he regretted from the movie. It was pretty interesting and he seemed like he understood the criticisms the fans had from it.

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

Hmm, unsure. Like the oned down colour pallete, but I always envisaged MC1 as very bright and lurid, hopefully the film won't be too dark and gritty (that said getting Dredd's world as a curious mix of the ridiculous and the horrific would be a tricky balancing act--organ legger and Simps don't neccesarily go togeather.)

Glad to hear its a test shot, less worried about the stubble than the somewhat oversized helmet!

Lonemagpie, I always assumed Grud was futre slang for God. Drokk was Fuck and Stomm shit! I'm sure someone was once arrested for Drokking in public...

Can't wait to see Urban in character properly, and to hear his Dredd growl. Also can't wait to see Anderson in her outfit!!!!

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

Mega City One's colourfulness really depends on who's drawing, who's colouring it and what story they happen to be telling at the time. Still, the pallet on a comic book strip is often meant to convey more of a sense of mood rather than the literal colours of the world, especially if the artist has a limit to what he can work with.

With that in mind I've always seen MC1 as a contrast between the lower street and sub-level dilapidation/warzone/toxic waste dump and the much cleaner and more decidant upper levels. This movie from what I gather takes place almost entierly within a single dive of a bloc, so I fully expect it to be dark, dirty and defiantly gritty.
I'm hoping for a similar feel (in terms of production design) as Children of Men, which quite effectively showed an advanced society in a perpetual state of decay.
