    ^Why? He just sounds like an average 2000AD fan to me. Why should he give a shite what Sly thinks? Not that I expect him to really disagree with Urban, he's been pretty straight up about his own dissatisfaction with the '94 film.

    Well there's only two ways around that: either use prosthetics and have it look very silly, or hire Bruce Campbell and...well, there's not really a down side to that one, is there? :p

    It does look a little odd having Dredd stood atop a building as if he's some superhero. I mean it's well done an everything but it's rather lacking in imagination. I'd even go so far as to say it's almost a parody of modern action movie posters.

    It is! I mean, this is Carlos Ezquerra, who created the art for Dredd in 2000AD, which is famous for satirizing present trends...

    I saw the first TV spot last night, during (of all things) The Hairy Bikers Mississippi Adventure...

    That's cool, make Peach Trees look more like a MC City Block. Only downside is Hedley mumbling, anyone else have trouble hearing everything she said? Has she been taking lessons from Tom Hardy or am I just deaf!

    ^There were a few lines I didn't catch, but (for me at least) that was down to the echo on the PA, not her delivery.

    I wondered when they were going to start the viral campaign. Honestly though I expected them to start this much much earlier. Like *before* they'd already released the trailer.

    I saw the trailer in the cinema and it looks really good. The movie doesn't look to be low-budget by any means, the visuals were quite impressive.

    If I had one gripe, it's that it doesn't quite seem to have the requisite black humour but maybe the film itself will have more of that; perhaps they don't want audiences to think this is a piss-take.

    I'm sure someone could do better if they took more than 20 secs. :)
