A couple new images from the forthcoming Dredd have popped up online. We’ve seen very little from the Pete Travis-directed reboot thus far, but it’s certainly clear from these images that Dredd is a world filled with large helmets and disgruntled frowns. I have absolutely no idea what kind of film Travis has crafted, but I’m hoping we’re in for a good time. Comic creator John Wagner recently talked a bit about the film and said we’re going to get a “more rounded, more human” Dredd who’s “capable of introspection [and] questioning his own beliefs.” I’m guessing this means no Rob Schneider.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film stars Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby (Juno) and Lena Headey (Game of Thrones). The film opens in 3D September 21st.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
