New Official Judge Dredd Pic Online

Karl Urban is still the law...

We’ll say this about the new Judge Dredd – he clearly doesn’t like to spend a lot of money on lighting. Okay, we realise Lionsgate is going for moody and stylish, with the added bonus of hiding elements of the costume until they’re ready for the big reveal, but the official image of Karl Urban as Mega City One’s tough-as-nail’s lawman doesn’t exactly give you the clearest look at him.

Still, it’s good to see that Urban certainly seems to have the Dredd visual down – despite the helmet still appearing to be a little big for his noggin.

In case you weren’t aware, this new Dredd adapts the 2,000 AD comic into the tale of the judges who patrol the streets of the aforementioned city, one of the few remaining bastions of civilization on Cursed Earth. Well, we say civilization, but crime is rampant and terror is around every corner. In order to combat it properly, the judges have full authority to execute wrongdoers.

The film will see Dredd and new recruit Anderson (Olivia Thirlby) getting trapped in one of the city’s more scum and/or villainy-infested blocks as a siege takes place. Lena Headey, Domhnall Gleeson and Langley Kirkwood are also in the cast.

Dredd is set to hit our screens early next year.
