Have we had this picture yet? A site reckons its new but I think I've seen it before. They really need to get a trailer sorted out for this.

It's too high up on his head. The visor needs to be at the bottom of his nose. They should have just designed around the 'prongs' at eye level.

I'm disappointed all the official photos so far have just been Dredd in a nondescript corridor. Seeing as there was some good concept art of Mega-City I was hoping we would have seen what the wider world looked like by now.

Maybe, just maybe, they're going in the opposite of Prometheus and Avengers and keeping as much hidden as possible. We're always pissing and moaning about studios showing too much.

Fine, but they've also got to sell the film to people unfamiliar/not bothered by Judge Dredd and I doubt most of the photos released so far will do that. I'm sure when the trailer appears much more will be revealed but it seems like they've been releasing photos for months now and most look strikingly similar (even Goose thought the newest photo had been released before). It is a balancing act to get right, how much do you show to pique an audience's interest without giving away the whole film. However, showing more than a solitary corridor is unlikely to ruin your enjoyment of the eventual film.

It has a similar set-up to The Raid if I'm not mistaken.

Good luck topping that...

I like the over-sized helmet in that new(?) picture...this is going to be 100% awesome!

I agree they could show more, but I have faith.

Is this still set in the near future, rather than the more distant setting of the comics? That was always my biggest reservation about the film – I’m not really arsed about the helmet or the lack of shoulderpads, it’s the fact that Mega City 1 was going to be some CGI-augmented South African suburb, rather than the literal embodiment of a MEGA CITY.

Tried putting his eyes where I always thought of Dredd's being.

Still looks like Dredd's little brother has nicked his uniform. Just isn't intimidating and therefore looks to fail on a fundamental level.

I heard that the reason they're keeping things low key is because they can't afford to spend too much on publicity (which kind of begs the question - if you can't afford to sell the picture, why make it and expect to make money?). But I agree with lordcookie, you've got to put something out there, especially if your release date is September. You need to start selling it to people who have no idea what the film is all about (or at least, to wash away the memory of the Stallone version, guilty pleasure or not).

Still concerned about the director walking off the picture/locked out of the editing suite, though I've heard little on that story since it emerged.

All a big fuss over nothing apparently:

Travis and Garland released a joint statement that read, "During all stages of the filmmaking, 'Dredd' has been a collaboration between a number of dedicated creative parties.  From the outset we decided on an unorthodox collaboration to make the film.  This situation has been misinterpreted.  To set the record straight, Pete was not fired and remains a central part of the collaboration, and Alex is not seeking a co-director credit.  We are all extremely proud of the film we have made, and respectfully suggest that it is judged on viewing when its released next year."

Dredd didnt suck at Cannes...

http://www.deadline.com/2012/05/cloud-atlas-dredd-looper-magic-mike-cannes-screenings/

Of today’s Dredd screening, IM Global’s Stuart Ford says, “The reaction was great. It was as packed as any screening I’ve seen in Cannes. There were people sitting on the floor in the front and the back of the room.” (And that was after the air-conditioning had gone on the blink just ahead of the movie; Ford says there were no walkouts, “even though it was about a hundred degrees.”) Dredd, directed by Pete Travis, stars Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby and Lena Headey. It’s a project that would also normally have been set up at a studio, but instead, Reliance Big Entertainment and IM Global financed DNA Films’ $40M adaptation of the UK comic created by John Wagner and illustrated by Carlos Ezquerra. Today’s screening allowed “people who bought it for a lot of money 18 months ago” to get a look at what Ford says is “an edgy, cool film with a rocking soundtrack.” Compared to other superhero pictures coming down the pike, Ford says it “appears very fresh and distinctive. It’s Dirty Harry meets District 9.” Lionsgate is releasing in the U.S. on September 21 and there are two territories remaining that Ford expects to close possibly “before the evening is out.”

I'd prefer to hear a reaction from someone other than the film distributer. I'm still unsure about this movie and it'd be nice to get more than "nobody walked out". Great poster quote, that.

I don't entirely dislike the way this looks to be shaping up, but I do have one big concern, which is that Karl Urban always looks as though he's trying to make the Dredd face, when it really ought to be the case that Dredd's face just naturally looks that pissed off and enormous-chinny all the time. That's why I'll always maintain that Ron Perlman should have been given the job.

John Wagners impressions of the new film from his Facebook page:

John Wagner

I went up to London yesterday to see the completed Dredd film. I've had reservations about certain aspects of it, and made them plain to the team at DNA. All but one of them - a little quibble at the beginning - have been addressed. And what a lot they've added. Music is on the button. SFX are excellent. Filming is impressive. I've not seen a modern 3-D movie before but I like it. I found myself reaching out trying to touch things that were dancing before my eyes. Karl is a great Dredd and Olivia gets Anderson completely. This is Dredd as it should be done - true to character, visceral, unrelentingly violent (but not off-puttingly so). It will open, I believe, sometime in September. No doubt you'll let me know what you think when you've seen it, but this has my recommendation.

Pffffft, I remember Tharg telling me the Stallone version was going to be awesome.

Well, John's been a fan of mushrooms for a very long time.
