First Image Released From Unnecessary Judge Dredd Remake

first image released from judge dredd remake

Check out the photo (above) to see the first image of Karl Urban as the new Judge Dredd.

For those of you out there who don't know Karl Urban, he does really great movies every once in a while, such as Star Trek and Lord of the Rings: The Return of The King, but SOMETIMES he does unwatchable movies, like Doom and Ghost Ship.

Take a guess which category we're thinking Dredd will fall into. And yes, it's just called Dredd!

We're REALLY not sure why they're remaking Judge Dredd, which was a low-point of Sylvester Stallone's career and the year 1995 as a whole.

For those of you who are innerested, back in May we heard the script described as a "high-octane slay ride through the dark underbelly of a vast futuristic city."

What do U think? Is this movie a bad idea? Or will it defy our expectations and NOT suck?

    I happen to like the original Judge Dredd. I think it was one of Stallone's best movies. "I am the Law!" Anyways - I think Keith Urban should stick to Country music. He needs to stop with the acting - just because you're married to an actor and in the entertainment business yourself doesn't automatically qualify you to be an actor. This movie will just prove how awful of an actor he is. Please stop already, Keith. PS - Perez, please learn to use spell check before posting - "innerested" isn't a word.

    This is a parody or a joke right? This movie is barely 15 years old…and it tanked back then. Why would ANYone think it was going to even make a dollar at the box office in 2011?!

    I LOVE Karl Urban, so whatever he does, I'm definitely going to watch :]

    As a self-described nerd, I feel compelled to inform you that Judge Dredd was a huge comic book icon in the UK for almost 20 years before Stalone starred in the first movie. The character is worthy of some respect if only for its longevity and presence in the UK's cultural consciousness. And I tend to enjoy Urban. He's one of the few cool Karls (/Carls) out there.

    So, wait, Spider-Man getting rebooted is "necessary", but Judge Dredd isn't? The first one was about as faithful to the source material as the American Godzilla movie from 1997 was. At least Spider-Man got a decent movie or two.

    What's wrong with you Perez? Do you even watch the movie's you rag on? Judge Dredd was great!!! You people that don't like Scifi, don't judge it if it'd not your thing. Stalone was a great JD.

    Okay, the word is INTERESTED not innerested there is a fucking t in there, always has been, Shortening words for net speak is one thing but changing the spelling when it does nothing is just dumb.



  12. 12

    Well this one actually is necessary as the one Stallone made didn't quite stay true to the comics and this one will which should mean it will be successful and a lot less cheesy.



  13. 13

    I honestly thought the original was alright, I liked how futuristic it was, kinda like Total Recall but with better special effects. I'll definitely watch the new one.

    i wanna see that

    Could everybody just please stop calling this a remake. As a film, if anything, you might call this a reboot of a franchise. This is not based on a the Stallone film. This is based on a comic book series that started way back in the seventies, still continuing to this day, of which the Stallone film was (loosely) based on. The film borrowed elements and characters from the entire run of the comic, mostly from the early 80's comics, although the film failed to present Dredd the way he is portrayed the comic, which was a major let down to the fans of the comic. In Britain, Dredd is a huge phenomenon, the Stallone movie… Well, not so much. You don't call Nolan's Batman Begins a remake of the Tim Burton's Batman film, or call Burton's film a remake of Batman the movie (the funny one with Adam West, based on the 60's TV series). The same thing applies here. Perez, please stop being so ignorant.

    Things that were different to the comic, well… In the comics, we never ever see Dredd's face (he has taken the helmet off on a couple of on a couple of occasions, but even then his face is in the shadows or under bandage). Dredd is way more unlikable, a fascist cop (actually, the whole justice department is fascist) who adheres strictly to the word of law, sometimes with darkly hilarious consequences. The humor in the comic is often quite absurd, always dark in tone. Some short stories are played for humor, while some stories contain social and political satire, pop culture commentary, media satire, action, mystery, horror, and in some cases, most often on the longer story arcs, boyish action adventure and scifi in the tradition of genre greats, like Edgar Rice Burroughs etc. The latter part was somewhat represented in the Stallone movie, while in other cases, the things that made Dredd who he is (in the comic) were only hinted at, and then soon discarded as the story progressed. The kiss at the end of the movie should have resulted Dredd (of the comic) suspending Judge Hershey and himself from duty, as sexual/romantic relationships between Judges are strictly verboten between judges, and Dredd does everything by the book, even by the letter.

    The thing with Dredd is that he is both the hero and the antihero, a ridiculous character, but at the same time totally unaware he might the object of ridicule (for the readers), but at the same time, he's also an icon, the face of the law, who just won't give up, even when facing insurmountable odds. He's saved millions of citizen, but sometimes, by his actions, also resulted in several unnecessary deaths (collateral damage), while pursuing someone who has done a petty crime. But still, he is always right, because, after all, he is the law. A complex character like that deserves a better movie. In case of Dredd, several stories could be told, some absurd, some adventurous, some darker, some more realistic, some more fantastical (Judge Death story arcs), all with very different overtones, while all of those could be true to the comic, if the character is done right.

    What lacked in the Stallone movie was that it didn't have the balls to go all the way. This version of the main character only hinted at what he was like in the comic, then softening his image by removing his helmet and going "emo", and in the latter half, transforming himself to a standard Hollywood action movie hero. If they could have just sticked to the character, it wouldn't have mattered that they had taken some liberties with the overall history of Mega City and it's characters, or that the helmet wasn't quite the way we see it in the comic book. They lost the actual soul of the comic. The movie RoboCop was also greatly influenced by the comic, and is considered a genre classic, while Judge Dredd (the movie) is not. I think Dredd definitely deserves a better movie.
