So its Dredd meets The Raid?

Luke_Torbay -> Iron Fish (21/6/2012 6:18:54 PM)

Ruled with an 'Iron Fish'?

Is that a new character? I do hope so. And I hope that Iron Fish has his own spin off...

hallbags -> Haha! (21/6/2012 6:31:16 PM)

You beat me to the iron fish gag! Nothing more scary than an iron fish!

GALLYMOO -> Needed Jerry Goldsmith's score! (21/6/2012 6:36:39 PM)

Visually the film looks good and the tone looks right but the trailer lets it down....I remember the trailer for the Stallone interpretation...now that hit hard (although the film hit a dud) and was well executed...it needed an old style voice over with a anvil smashing teeth score with successive shots and less synopsis...Urban looks good tho...reminds of Robocop in many ways! That's always a good thing!

RobotDevil -> Iron fish (21/6/2012 6:40:20 PM)

Iron fish in a velvet...finger?

Iron fish in a velvet...finger?

Trailer looks OK, but hasn't got me dying to see the film.

MoBiUGeArSkIn -> RE: Dredd Trailer Rides In (21/6/2012 6:41:24 PM)

Everyone should remember that pre-production on this thing began in Summer 2010, filming began in November 2010 and it was originally supposed to be out last Winter. It may have a siege setting, like The Raid, but this was written and shot before that movie went before any cameras.

Tankleton28 -> RE: Dredd Trailer Rides In (21/6/2012 7:10:28 PM)

Fairly new around these parts. disappointed I am with the new Dredd 3d trailer.

Thanks guys. Wonderful place.

Robocop was based on Dredd anyways, but they couldn't get the rights to use ol' stoney face himself.

"Your move creep!"

haranjen -> Stuttering comments (21/6/2012 7:14:53 PM)

Thats the last time I keep pressing submit when I get an error warning message

Luke_Torbay -> Iron Fish... in a Velvet Finger (21/6/2012 7:57:33 PM)

I like all the Iron Fish suggestions. I reckon he could be a friend of Iron Man (hence cropping up in the Avengers). It would be a pretty epic movie... particularly because Iron Fish can't go in water otherwise he'd rust.

burtbondy -> Oh Drokk.. (21/6/2012 8:24:37 PM)

It hurts to say it but this does not look good at all.The stallone version looks better. There was impressive FX work and at times felt like a decent adaptation but fuck the rest of it. I think Dredd is unfilmable, the tone and images would be bestsuited to an animated feature.

haranjen -> Try Hard (21/6/2012 8:26:40 PM)

Just watched the trailer again, Very original concept, American Cop has to work way round skyscraper pursued by terrorists. Was Bruce Willis busy on Expendables 2, so they had to call in Dr McCoy?

sweetladybrick -> (21/6/2012 9:16:27 PM)

Looks okay. Stallone's Lawmaster bike looked better though- I hope that realism doesn't mean Anderson isn't part of the PSI division (because if she is, it sets up a lot of possibilities for a grander universe... a reworked Necropolis from the writer of 28 Days Later? I'd be into that).

Cool Breeze -> The Raid 2: Judgement Day. (21/6/2012 9:18:50 PM)

Looks very cool.Has to be better than the Stallone film anyway right? Did anyone think Urban sounded like Snake Plissken? And the plot does sound remarkably similar to The Raid.

MoBiUGeArSkIn -> RE: Dredd Trailer Rides In (21/6/2012 9:41:45 PM)

If you really dig into it, there's an accurate script review posted on AICN via Latino Reviews. It's accurate all the way down to the name of the Block in the finished film (Peach Trees). That review is dated July 2010, a whole eight months before the cameras rolled on The Raid in March 2011.

Marantau came out in Indonesia in the Summer of 2009. Gareth Evans and crew worked for just over a year on a project called "Barandal", which fell through because they couldn't get the budget. So, if you go with the rough time scale, Gareth Evans was looking for a script in order to make a movie around the time that DREDD's script became available to the public...

I'm just going to come out and say that Gareth Evans probably read it. The script was not hard to find! Not that I think it takes anything away from The Raid, which just needed an excuse to kick ass! Favourite film of the year so far, easy.

John Wagner, creator of Judge Dredd, has seen the film, posted the following on his Facebook page:

"I went up to London yesterday to see the completed Dredd film. I’ve had reservations about certain aspects of it, and made them plain to the team at DNA. All but one of them – a little quibble at the beginning – have been addressed. And what a lot they’ve added. Music is on the button. SFX are excellent. Filming is impressive. I’ve not seen a modern 3-D movie before but I like it. I found myself reaching out trying to touch things that were dancing before my eyes. Karl is a great Dredd and Olivia gets Anderson completely. This is Dredd as it should be done – true to character, visceral, unrelentingly violent (but not off-puttingly so). It will open, I believe, sometime in September. No doubt you’ll let me know what you think when you’ve seen it, but this has my recommendation."

So if he thinks it's good... I'd say it must be doing something right.

GALLYMOO -> 'Raid'ers of the lost Dredd (21/6/2012 9:48:23 PM)

Does it really matter about the similarities? Really? Dredd taking out the trash in a sci-fi actioner... just enjoy! Loved the Raid ...put the brains aside for a no-brainer!

Please be an 18, Please be an 18, Please be an 18, Please be an 18, Please be an 18, Please be an 18, Please be an 18, Please be an 18, Please be an 18, Please be an 18, Please be an 18, Please be an 18.

dron -> Hmmm.not a bad start (21/6/2012 10:56:28 PM)

But too reminiscent of the Raid - not a bad thing though and Raid was written afterwards.

Urban looks to have Dredd off to a tee though so I reserve judgment just yet.

Scruffybobby -> RE: (21/6/2012 10:56:28 PM)

It will be a 15.

fiercehairdo -> Outfit Wrong (22/6/2012 12:15:13 AM)

I realise that this issue was discussed some time ago when production pics were released but it still bothers me - Dredd's outfit really feels wrong. Where are the iconic shoulder pads/Eagle pad and chain? It may be impracticle and unreal but so is most of Batman's costume but they keep him in a cape. It can still be made to work cinematically. It isn't terrible but sloping soldiers do not say Dredd. Impossible armoured shoulder pads do. He doesn't seem bulky and square jawed enough either for Dredd. Almost seems swallowed up by the helmet. I like Urban as an actor a lot, so fingers crossed... But I'm not convinced from this. Hope I'm wrong.

Spaldron -> RE: Outfit Wrong (22/6/2012 1:53:15 AM)

How long until someone says it looks just like The Raid oh wait they already did. [>:]

I have very hight hopes for this, as a long time JD fan I'm eagerly anticipating a proper adaptation to excise that awful Stallone version.

xxsteveo71xx -> mmmm 18? im guessin 12a (22/6/2012 2:36:19 AM)

well trailer looks erm.... ok we all know this aint looking good, nothing original at all. why the drokk cant we have a dredd v death. what a villain judge death would have been and make it 18 cert. but we all know it will be a 12a cop out with a rubbish script and nothin we havent seen before. it will probably be far worse than sly`s film, which is a gulity pleasure of mine....I AM THE LAW lol

BenTramer -> "I Knew You'd Say That" (22/6/2012 3:46:39 AM)

Yes, Judge Death is the Darth Vader of the Dredd universe and after two movies, we still haven't seen him and it looks like we never will. The guy playing Dredd in this is nothing to write home about, don't know how he got the part. Stallone was promoting the 1995 Dredd on David Letterman & he asked Stallone who Judge Dredd was and Stallone couldn't answer, I think that's one reason why it flopped. It's nice to think of this new movie as the sequel to Stallone's one and it would have been out in 1997 or 98.

willy2fly -> WOW! IMMENSE! CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS! (22/6/2012 4:42:27 AM)

I have been a fan of Judge Dredd and 2000AD for over 20 years and this looks EVERY INCH like the big screen adaptation i've always wanted for the ultimate lawman. From the tone, design, music, vocal, etc I truly believe this will be one of the best movies of 2012. It looks so slick and grimey. I cant wait for it to be released. It's shaping up to be the movie us DREDD heads deserve. Roll on September. I

evilpickle4 -> What a relief... (22/6/2012 9:29:35 AM)

... I thought this was going to be a dud. Not the Stallone-dud of course (outfits by versace?) - but after seeing this trailer I'm confident that this is going to be in the Top 5 best movies of 2012 (Nothing is topping DKR. NOTHING!!). I like Urban as Dredd from what I've seen. He's got that Dredd downturned-mouth to a tee. Mega City One looks good. Not 2000AD good, but I found the attempt at the claustraphobic city in Stallone's version very shoddy. It looked like what it was - a poorly constructed stage-set. And Lena Headey in a bathtub? I'm buying my ticket now.

LSJShez -> (22/6/2012 9:56:39 AM)

The slow-mo has me worried.

Edgar Nollen -> (22/6/2012 9:59:15 AM)

"Ruled with an iron fish" Now that should scare our brave judge. I imagine him doing a fish slapping dance with this dude.

Youshouldberunning -> (22/6/2012 10:04:52 AM)
