Dredd

After all the teasers and posters and preview screenings at Comic-Con, which I missed, I'm ready to see "Dredd" already. September 21 is still too far away for my liking, but luckily for me and my fellow fans of the upcoming big screen reinvention of the cult British comic, we have a new poster to ogle. See it below!

Dredd

Much has been made of Karl Urban's take on Judge Dredd already, but for me, the component I'm most looking forward to is Lena Headey as Ma-Ma Madrigal, the film's villain. Headey is fantastic in everything she touches — most especially HBO's "Game of Thrones" — and based on what Urban is saying about her work as the "Dredd" antagonist, she's about to deliver the goods once again.

"I think there is a scary, beautiful, violent, way off-beat, amazing performance that Lena has delivered in this film," the actor told Movie Fanatic in a new interview. "She’s enigmatic. You’re drawn to her when she’s on the screen. The choices that she made were so interesting."

Karl Urban has seen Sylvester Stallone's version of "Judge Dredd." He just thinks that his version is much better.

The star of "Dredd" stopped by the MTV News offices while he was promoting the movie at Comic-Con and didn't have any qualms about comparing his film's take on the cult British comic to the one that came before. We've heard good things from the "Dredd" screening that took place a couple nights ago, and Urban said his "Dredd" has got nothing to worry about.

"I saw [Stallone's] movie when it came out in '94. Tonally, these films couldn't be more different," he said. "I think it's a difference of if you like your characters wearing lycra and gold cod pieces, then his film's the one for you. But if you like badass movie where your heroes are real and wearing leather and motorbike suits and body armor and hardcore gritty punches, this is the one for you."

Dredd

"Dredd" doesn't hit theaters for another couple of months, but certain Comic-Con attendees are going to get an early look at the film at a special screening on Wednesday (July 11). Early word of mouth on the movie could prove very important to its sequel prospects — and yes, the folks behind "Dredd" are already thinking about the Judge's future.

During an appearance at the London Film and Comic Con last weekend, "Dredd" writer Alex Garland spoke about what it would take to make a sequel happen. As it turns out, he has a very specific number in mind.

"We’ll see a sequel if the gross is above $50 million in the US," said Garland, according to Bleeding Cool. "It’s a simple financial equation. We’re an independent movie."

The sentence... is death.

Or at least that's the sentence Lionsgate wants us to know about "Dredd" when we're headed into San Diego Comic-Con next week. The studio has released a new motion poster for the movie that features the above line and a Twitter hashtag promising that "judgment is coming." If you want to make friends, Judge Dredd, this probably isn't the best way to do it.

Judge, jury and executioner — that's all in Dredd's job description, and right now, it's in yours as well.

The first trailer for "Dredd," director Pete Travis' adaptation of the British 2000 AD icon, arrived online yesterday after months — heck, years — of seeing round after round of interviews and promo photos, but not a single eyefull of footage from the film. With two and a half minutes of "Dredd" now out there in all of its Slo-Mo glory, fans have a much better idea of what they can expect from the upcoming flick. Is this the "Dredd" you've always wanted to see? Or does it look like another Sylvester Stallone level disaster? Perhaps the answer is somewhere in between?

It's your turn: tell us what you thought of the "Dredd" trailer in the poll below!

UPDATE: The trailer's back! Keep reading to check it out!

The law is here, folks — and the sentence looks extremely cool.

"Dredd," the long awaited adaptation of 2000 AD's revered Judge Dredd franchise, has finally dropped its first full trailer … and boy, it does not disappoint. Karl Urban is in full badass mode as one of Mega City One's most thoroughly capable judge, jury and executioners, with Olivia Thirlby along for the ride as trainee Cassie Anderson. The two are going up against Ma Ma Madrigal, played by "Game of Thrones" baddie Lena Headey in a turn that's already looking to rival her infamously wicked Queen Cersei Lannister.

Judge Dredd does not have the most market-friendly reputation in America, in no short thanks to the 1995 Sylvester Stallone film, widely regarded as a disappointment. So it must mean something good that a reboot is set to come out in September — but we'll get to judge for ourselves in just a few short days.

On Thursday, the first trailer for “Dredd” will drop, possibly kickstarting the hype or disappointing fans still waiting for a righteous adaptation. In anticipation, we’ve listed five things we’re excited to see.
