I went to see the Stallone film when i was reading a bit of the 'Megazine'. i always enjoyed Judge Dredd as a character and like a lot of folks i was disappointed by the film. I've only just heard about a new film so i'm a wee bit excited to see it.

On a Dredd note, i'm thinking of getting some Dredd for me and the wife to chew on (i only bought the megazine for about a year, so i'm not clued in on the big stories or character development) . Any recommendations for graphic novels for us to get into

DNA Films have issued a statement...

As a result of online speculation regarding the release date of the trailer for 'Dredd', we can announce it will be released after the film's Blu-Ray and DVD launch next year. If fans wish to learn more about the film, including a comprehensive breakdown of the plot, cast, crew, as well as a blog video and new photographs taken from the set, please visit our website at http://www.dnafilms.com.

Well, this is great news! It's great to know the trailer will be out in 2013. At least we don't have long to wait.

That statement makes no sense. And where/who have they released it to - just yourself?

Cheers, Timon. This is why we ask questions. But do you think Dredd'll be getting the Black Hawk Down guys or might they only be able to afford the work experience team?

P.S What effects do you think were needed on Hilary and Jackie: cello enlargement?

I'm not averse to film-makers using real world locations for science fiction films- Clockwork Orange makes Seventies civic architecture look so foreboding I still get the heebies driving through Cumbernauld- but unless they're used imaginatively they look every bit as shite as the daytime shots of Judge Dredd (1995)'s purpose-built street set.

Shakycam, constant movement and rapid editing will be Dredd (2012)'s friends.

dreddhead123: 'The gore count in Dredd 2012 should be pretty high. It's going to be a tough action film so I'll be surprised if it gets a 15 rating, but you never know, stuff may be cut to lower the classification. May make sense to reduce the gore and appeal to a larger audience.'

Timon: 'I know someone who is working on the Dredd FX and they told me some of the stuff they've been working on... and it's pretty graphic.'



Interesting point, Scott. From what I understand, Judge Dredd (1995) was such a curiously bloodless affair because of Stallone's desire to turn it into a family film franchise (i). That's one of the reasons why that film has such an uneven tone: Maurice Roeves getting his throat shot out produces a feeble spritz of haemoglobin (ii), but when everyone else gets shot it's as exsanguinated as a game of Dead Man's Fall.

Now that DNA have committed to making a mature audience Action-Shooter, it'd be crazy to try and neuter their film to widen its potential audience. I'm sure Dredd (2012) will enjoy (modest) theatrical success; but it's DVD sales, to the much narrower band of splatter-happy Action film fans, that represent the best chance of putting smiles on the faces of Dredd's investors (iii).

(i) This kind of shite was in vogue in the early nineties. Schwarzenegger’s desire to pull in a kiddie audience for T2 was the reason behind his character swearing an oath not to kill anyone; and Sigourney Weaver's got to shoulder some of the blame for Alien 3, after insisting all the Marines' cool firepower be left in the wreckage of the Sulaco for ideological reasons.


(ii) Compare that to Colin MacNeil's depiction of Total War's execution of a Judge in the definitive Dredd story America. That guy's head explodes like a fucking melon, and I picked my copy of that comic up from the same shelf as The People's Friend.

(iii) Actually, my understanding is that the money from selling the distribution rights has covered production costs.

So do you think the similarities between the two films represents a problem for Dredd (2012) at the box office?

If western audiences are given a choice between two films with the same premise, they've historically gravitated towards the one that isn't in Foreign- even if that one's the better film.

No one can, I don't think even dreddhead knows. All we know is he has a penchant for photoshopping images of Dredd and claiming they're actual film stills. I think he's 12.

Spaldron, I think you should stop posting in this thread before your heart explodes.

It is obviously making you quite angry.

I like Judge Dredd as much as anyone and am really looking forward to the film. However the damn thread is being derailed and its very irritating. No ones going to stop me posting here, except the mods of course.

It could be argued that dreddhead's fanboying is the only thing that has kept this thread going though, especially since for the most part there's very little news about the film to discuss.

More of a Mega city story than a Dredd story,although it's ok(not enough Dredd for me),much preferred Total War...Midnight Surfer and Fink will always be my faves..... Apocalypse War or the Death ones too. Not up on to much of the new stuff as i stopped buying the mag years ago so i'm just trying too keep up with the 'case files',years behind though.

All of the above is true and all of the above are recommended. Although, the way Dredd is used in America makes the character all the more terrifying: one of the best Dredd universe stories is Chopper: Song of the Surfer, which features Dredd not one jot.

If deep and serious isn't your particular bag, then Necropolis and The Pit have dumb fun and great storytelling aplenty. Of the newer stuff, Tour of Duty's the perfect hop-on point and proof that John Wagner could keep doing this forever without skimping on the quality.

spiderdan's an acutely perceptive young man. This thread was notable only for the sound of tumbleweed before Scott showed up. Whatever you think about him, he's good for business; and, believe me, he's more than capable of withstanding the occasional 'Fuck Off!'. His Dredd trailer post had the unusual quality of making a valid point and the credulous reactions to it were hilarious.

Spaldron's fulminating ripostes to Scott's malarkey are just as entertaining and, however annoying others find me or them, as long as we keep (both) Dredd threads at the top of the forum and in people's thoughts that's a good thing for the film.

I value Scott and Spaldron's contributions as much as I disagree with them.
