More New Dredd Pictures Put The Focus On Ma-Ma And Anderson

fb share tweet share

This is probably going to happen a lot between now and September 21st when the film is finally released, but there are a bunch of new images from Pete Travis’ comic book adaptation Dredd. While some of these photos feature star Karl Urban’s Judge Dredd, there is definitely more focus placed on the other two main characters, the female leads Ma-Ma (Lena Heady) and Judge Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby).

Admittedly, such a shift in the spotlight is a welcome change. Let’s face it, you can only do so much when half a character’s face is obscured by a large helmet, and now you get a good look at other people in the film, not just Urban’s clenched jaw.

Karl Urban Scowls And Points A Gun In New Gallery Of Dredd Images

After garnering high praise from nearly everyone privy to the advanced screening at Comic Con, people seem to be taking Pete Travis’ Dredd more seriously. The adaptation of 2000AD’s comic book Judge Dredd still looks silly, but silly in a kick ass action kind of way (aka, the best possible way). No matter what happens, Dredd will certainly be a grittier, less cartoonish interpretation of the source material than the 1995 Sly Stallone version.

A new gallery of images from Dredd has been released, and they fit into what we’ve already seen. They’re a strange combination of grim and serious to the point of caricature.

Dredd Screenwriter Has Plans For The Judge’s Sequel

How soon is too soon to start talking about making the sequel? The sci-fi remake/reboot of the Judge Dredd comic book series, Dredd has not even opened in theaters or screened for critics but its screenwriter Alex Garland (Sunshine, Never Let Me Go) has the next film already mapped out.

At the Dredd panel at the London Film and Comic-Con festival, Garland encouraged the crowd to see the movie when it comes out so there can be a sequel. He continued to say the film has to gross at least $50 million in the US to become financially viable to make a sequel. So if you want to see future installments of Dredd, go to your local theater on September 21 and watch the movie. But what if the movie isn’t very good?

He later teased the crowd of Judge Dredd fans what the sequel movie will have in store for our police officer protagonist,

“In terms of Dark Judges, I wrote [Judge] Death into this script, but it didn’t feel right for the first film,” he said. “I needed to have set up the city and Dredd first before taking on what is essentially a riff on the Judges. You need to know what the Judges are before you can subvert them.” Garland continued, “If they want to make sequels, I’ve got a story that goes from this one into the origins of Dredd and the city. Then the third one has would have a strange, existential attack from the Dark Judges.”

First Dredd Trailer Sends Karl Urban To Execute Lena Headey

Judgement Is coming, or perhaps we should say, coming back. The first trailer for Dredd is here and teases a grittier look and feel to a familiar story. Director Pete Travis is taking a darker approach to the 1995 cult classic, Judge Dredd, starring Sylvester Stallone. Dredd grounds the original British source material by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra in a future reality without enclosed megacities, recycle food bots and cannibalistic scavengers or annoying Rob Schneider-type characters.
