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

I just don't see "squeeing fangirlies" caring about a gritty sci-fi actioner like this one. "OMG, he's like, totally, THE LAW, ya know?"

^ You're probably right. But maybe it'll have vampires...

Stallone was a better Dredd than a lot of people gave him credit for, but then I think it was a better Dredd film than a lot of people do
Same here. I'm even willing to say that Stallone has done some far acting in general. The first Rocky and the first Rambo films had some scenes in it where he really touches something.

But, then he goes off and makes sequels that are just to horrible......

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

The film has a composer now. I have no idea who this guy is so I can't profess to be excited or not about this choice. I was kind of hoping for John Murphy given his previous connection with Alex Garland on "Sunshine".

^ He could have taken it off, it's just that we the audience wouldn't have seen it. They could do it a bit tongue-in-cheek, like an Austin Powers movie, with a series of things covering Dredd's face (as oppose to Austin's genitalia) or simply pan the camera away and film him from behind when he takes it off.
Yep - there have been scenes in the comics when he's taken his helmet off, and we've only seen other characters' reactions, or him in disguise with a temporarily false face, or - in at least a couple of memorable occasions - with a "Censored" bar blocking out our view of his face!
But we've also see him in the bath with his helmet on, and even in a sleep machine still wearing it!

Of course for multiple issues of 200AD Dredd didn't wear his helmet and his face was on show the whole time

Well, with all the skin burnt off, so we still didn't see his actual features...

(and of course, there were ones where he's been undercover after a session in a face-change machine, and so they weren't his face...)

New pic of Urban as Dredd. Don't remember Joe being this stubbly in the comics (most of the time) but he still looks the part.

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

The helmet still seems wrong, it looks good, it's just the way it sits on the head, too high and perhaps too big. Pretty sure Dredd's probably a stickler for shaving given we've seen him be dismissive of Judges from other cities who have facial hair.

Damn can we have a trailer already!?

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

Film is still eight months out or something...I thought it might be a possibility that we would get our first teaser trailer at the Super Bowl but that doesn't seem to be the case.

Between the production issues, the reports of the director getting sacked from the editing suite and the complete lack of publicity thus far, it would have been highly unlikely for Lionsgate to fork out the $3 million for a Dredd spot during the Super Bowl.

I think Lionsgate would rather put a Expendables 2 spot up for the SuperBowl if anything.

Dredd was never going to be a big enough project to get that sort of advertising.
