Here’s the first poster for Dredd, the all new attempt to redo the Judge Dredd universe in a way that’s actually, you know, good. That’s Karl Urban there, under the helmet as Dredd…
I was kind of hoping they’d use “Here come the Judge!” as the movie’s tagline, but barring that I guess “Judgement is coming” works. The poster comes from JoBlo.
Word is that Karl Urban’s Judge Dredd character will, as it was in the comics, never actually take off his helmet. So you may not see a lot more of his face than you’re seeing there.
Dredd hits theaters September 21st of this year with a script from 28 Days Later and Sunshine writer Alex Garland. Lena Headey and Olivia Thirlby co-star with Urban and Rob Schneider was not allowed anywhere near the set.
