Are you ready for some Dredd? So far we haven't seen a whole lot of information about the upcoming Judge Dredd film titled simply Dredd save for a very basic synopsis and some tidbits of information here and there; until now. Recently some images of actors Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby were taken and leaked online -- and they look pretty cool.

The images of the actors in full costume give us our first look at the costume design, which is a more modern, grittier version than what we saw in the original Judge Dredd film starring Sylvester Stallone back in 1995. With a budget of 45 million, the film is currently in its post-production stage with a release date set for September 21st, 2012. Dredd is being developed by British film companies DNA Films, IM Global and Reliance and will be distributed in the United States by Lionsgate.

The film will star Karl Urban as Judge Dredd in a violent, Dystopian future where law enforcement acts as "judge, jury and executioner." Dredd's main goal? To infiltrate and eradicate a gang that deals a "reality-altering" drug called SLO-MO. JUDGE DREDD is currently published by 2000AD.

Check out images from the set of the film below! Be warned that some of the images may be considered graphic.

Helmet is horrible.

That helmet looks ridiculous, and if the original is anything to go by I doubt this iteration will be up to much.

#6 Posted by sinful (149 posts) - - Show Bio

ugh the helmet...

#7 Posted by BiteMe-Fanboy (8086 posts) - - Show Bio

I think it looks pretty awesome. Yes, it's a pretty big helmet. But overall it looks pretty badass

So can that helmet kill this movie? Yes I think it can.

That film will have no bareing on this what so ever. 
 
I can't wait for this. Since it's British made I hope they stay true to 2000AD

Just like how Bane's crappy mask in DKR could kill that movie?

That looks good. They are going for a modern and more realistic take on Dredd, and that is what it looks like.

For f**k sake! The helmet has too be bulky because Dread rides around in a flying motorcycle.

Yea, seriously if this film doesn't do well I will actually hunt down every one on this Vine that didn't go and see it and kick there ass. Dredd is the ONLY British character that is remotely successfully and he has to do well or there wont be another.

Well said, my friend.

I would love a film where Dredd never removes his helmet, or if he does they shoot it in a way that you never see his face properly. Sure, it's not glamourous, but hot damn I'd admire that kind of commitment to the comic and the project.

This definitely looks more promising than the first movie incarnation of Dredd, and I'm more keen to see it than I thought I'd be, but I'm not counting my Umpty before it's unwrapped.

Well, sorta. That's current-day thinking, but in the future I'd like to imagine there's some high tech material that's lighter, thinner and stronger than what we've got today.

@buzz_clik: They told Urban before he was cast that he would not be talking the helmet off on camera and he said he wouldn't have it any other way.

Looks pretty darn cool thus far. Dredd looks as close as a direct representation as I think they could get.

What troubles me is every other person commenting on how "huge" it is. First of all... it is a helmet. Not a hat. It's supposed to have some bulk to it or else, what's the point?

Secondly, has anyone SEEN what Dredd's helmet looks like in the comics? Seems fairly accurate to me. I'd be more concerned if Dredd wasn't wearing a helmet at all.

#25 Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus (6836 posts) - - Show Bio

Humina, humina, humina, humina! Amazing. I sooo am gonna see this movie.

Exactly take a look at last weeks issue of 2000AD:

My favorite part of the Dredd Mythos is the Judges' technology they use for law-enforcement. Particularly the spray-able rubber foam used to contain rioters en masse.

nobody gonna beat stallone. the new guy looks kinda short. maybe thats why they made the helmet so big, compensating.

#30 Posted by Herx (372 posts) - - Show Bio

The 1995 film was a stalone film. You watched it to see stalone.

This is a dredd Film. You watch it to see dredd.

cant wait.

#31 Posted by CaptainCockblock (3650 posts) - - Show Bio

What's hilarious is that Judge Dredd in the comics was, among other things, a parody of the kind of movie it was adapted into. If they can get it even an iota closer to the source material this time, it might actually be worth watching.

And NO taking off the helmet!

#32 Edited by buzz_clik (5 posts) - - Show Bio

@spiderbat87: You just made my goddamn day with this information. VERY COOL, MR URBAN.

To be totally honest, I didn't know they were making a Dredd movie until a few days ago; I've really fallen off the 2000 AD fanboy cart, haven't I? But all this has reminded me that I don't have an avatar on CV, so I'mma plug in my Super Deformed Strontium Dog and fly my 2000 AD flag!

Yeah, but Dread lives in a post-apocalyptic future were the police are literally judge, jury and executioners.

Yep, but it's also a future where sentient robots are trucking around, and dudes ride flying surfboards. I'm pretty sure their tech's up to snuff.

Thankfully Olivia Thirlby is not wearing the helmet. Yum.

The helmet is supposed to be bulky, its a helmet made to protect against possible injuries. I like how the second to first picture is a head shot lol. Can't wait for this movie to come out

I remember this movie he was like "i'm judge, jury & executioner" I hope it turns out good but I wouldn't mind a Robocop reboot.

I don't know what to say... I never read Judge Dredd comics before but I watched the so-bad-its-good-but-otherwise-forgettable Silvester Stallone's movie. This looks really good by the way.

#45 Posted by alphamale73 (69 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't have a problem with the helmet, as long as he keeps it on.

#46 Posted by pspin (894 posts) - - Show Bio

This looks cool plus it has Karl Urban, who is awesome, so this should be good

#47 Posted by Chibi-Iroh (381 posts) - - Show Bio

That helmet could seriously lose a few pounds.

All I needed to see was Dredd blowing a guys head off to know I need to see this. It might not have been Dredd, but my needs were delivered upon.

#49 Posted by sesquipedalophobe (4760 posts) - - Show Bio

Olivia Thirlby can be my judge, jury and executioner any day.

Who the hell thought that helmet looked good? (talking about the production and the director)
