It would have been nice to see Dredd make a showing at this year’s Comic-Con, but we’re still getting a look at the new adaptation of the 2000 A.D. comic Judge Dredd. We recently got the first image of Karl Urban as the title character and now Empire Magazine has three more stills from the flick. One of the shots is the first look at Olivia Thirlby (Juno) as rookie Judge Cassandra Anderson. Not much is known about the plot other than it will be more faithful to the comic than the 1995 Sylvester Stallone film, and that Lena Headey (Game of Thrones) is playing the villain. [Update: We’ve now added the Empire cover which shows Karl Urban frowning like there’s no tomorrow.] [Update 2: We’ve added six more images including one of Headey as the villainous clan leader Ma-Ma]
Hit the jump to check out the images. Dredd opens in 3D on September 21, 2012.
Here’s the official synopsis for Dredd:
DREDD takes us to the wild streets of Mega City One, the lone oasis of quasi-civilization on Cursed Earth. Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) is the most feared of elite Street Judges, with the power to enforce the law, sentence offenders and execute them on the spot – if necessary. The endlessly inventive mind of writer Alex Garland and the frenetic vision of director Peter Travis bring DREDD to life as a futuristic neo-noir action film that returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra’s revered comic strip.
