Dredd soundtrack composer Paul Leonard-Morgan's OST is released for download and on CD on the third of September. Soundcloud has a preview of the score, which sounds to me like Lalo Shifrin getting a kicking from the Chemical Brothers- perfect for Dredd:

Oh cheers. Reminds me of Jack Wall and Amon Tobin which is nice, overall very suitable stuff.

The Q & A posted above is also quite informative, some good details there.

Even if Dredd "underperforms" at the box office, good word of mouth could still make it a hit on disc and that could spell sequels...

Lovin' the frickin' huge posters, BTW. And they are everywhere - you can hardly pass a billboard at the moment without Old Stoney Face scowling down at you. DNA have clearly been saving their promo-pennies for a mega-publicity blitzkrieg just weeks before release - ZARJAZ!

I'm guessing they're launching the film outside the US first as it's got better prospects making a decent dent internationally than if it launched in the US first. Good word of mouth and decent international box office will hopefully then help with the US release as it'll have built up a bit of steam.

I'm going to try and get a ticket to one of the two screenings happeing here in Toronto next week. It's having its worldwide premiere on Thursday 6th Sept at the film festival here (along with plenty of other great films, like Looper and Martin McDonagh's new film 'Seven Psychopaths'!) Last time I went to see a Judge Dredd film in the cinema, I was 12 years old and had my little boy heart broken

I don't think I was dreaming but I'm sure the BBFC rated Dredd with an 18 certificate about a week/2 week ago. I'm sure I saw it on their website but it now seems to have disappeared... Anyone else see it or is it me wishful thinking!? I'm wondering if it's being recut to get a lower certificate (if it was indeed certified and wasn't just me seeing things!)

You're probably talking the trailer rating (which, I think, is separate from the feature). It's rated 18A in North America anyway

As far as I know, any certification information has only been 18- TBC on cinema listings sites. The film has been finished and the edit locked for months now- and the film's a confirmed R in the states- so I don't think there's any last minute change of heart about the age rating. Apparently, it's not uncommon for films to be certified this close to release.

furrybastard; you are one lucky furry bastard. Can't wait to read your spoiler-free review to pass the long 24 hours till I see the film for myself. Wasn't Toronto where the word of mouth regarding The Raid took off last year? It would be great if Dredd could repeat that trick.

Yup it was the same Midnight Screening event that did The Raid. Hoping to see Martin McDonagh's new film Seven Psychopaths too: Tom Waits + rabbit = gold.

I don't have high hopes of scoring a ticket if I'm honest but there are two screenings of Dredd at the festival (on the 6th and the 8th) so I'll hopefully be able to get one of them. Otherwise I'll be waiting two weeks

Anyone find it odd there there has been a strong love-in for Tower block films recently?
Films like Attack The Block,Tower Block,The Raid,Dredd etc.Imagine if all these films were combined to make one big-epic-tower block blockbuster,that'll be cool.

Going by the consumer advice it seems like it'll be pretty much no holds barred in terms of violence.

As someone who hasn't read a Dredd comic in a dog's age, I'm curious if this is something that the hardcore fans were hoping for?
Or does it seem like a case of the director swamping a comic book film with needlessly gory violence, like what Zack Snyder did with Watchmen.

I think this DREDD film can get away with it due to the fact there have been Dredd comics that do go hell-for-leather in violence not to dissimilar to what this film looks to be heading.
And In some ways I feel this Film will feel similar to those quick 7 page Dredd strips that focus primarily on those violent circumstances over a more in-depth story/plot.

I,personally,cant wait if a sequel will be in the works if this Film does well financially.And if it does then I expect a more thought provoking story to this one, which looks like a great step-in into the manic violence in which MegaCityOne holds in a very simple yet effective manner.

This was my worry but the fact that John Wagner seems to like it is a pretty big seal of approval. He's not the kind of guy who minces his words and was more than vocal about the Stallone film when that came out. Garland not only changed a few things in the film after Wagner saw the first cut but apparently he also let him 'fix' the dialogue for Dredd throughout the film.

Personally, I prefer the satirical/topical side of Judge Dredd like in the post-America years of the comic (right up to today) as opposed to the more 80s/90s style ultraviolence. I also quite like the explanation Garland gives for the slo-mo drug and that it actually has a narrative and thematic justificaiton for its inclusion (as opposed to Snyder's Watchmen).

I'm pretty excited about seeing a Judge Dredd film, if I'm honest. If they get it right, it'll be pretty damn cool to see a real-life 2000AD character up on the big screen. And if it gets more comic fans reading the cynical, dry-humoured and subversive 2000AD over its lame US counterparts, that'd be good too

Yup, agree with all of this. This film really does feel like it's going to be one of those short, snappy self-contained stories they do in the comic every once in a while. But it should suggest enough so that in sequels they can build on the world of Mega-City One.

Garland has said that a general plan for sequels would be something like Dredd 2 having Chopper and/or The Angel Gang and Dredd 3 being something like Judge Cal (The Day the Law Died) and the Dark Judges.

Garland told EMPIRE that, in an ideal world, Dredd 2 would be The Cursed Earth and Dredd 3 would be The Dark Judges. He also said his first draft was Judge Death before he realised that was the end of a trilogy, not the start. That he has to introduce Dredd and his world before he can introduce what is basically a twisted parody of it. It's this kind of thinking I find most reassuring.

Dredd would make the best TV show ever; the narrative drive of The Wire and Boardwalk Empire, but with the production values of Star Wars. A new featurette, featuring some seriously fucked-up Lena Headey imagery and incredible footage of Dredd doing what he does best has popped up on Youtube.

It also features the first appearance of the hitherto silent director, Pete Travis. Be warned, you might want to cover the eyes of small children and lock pets behind closed doors before watching his scenes:
