More Judge Dredd Images – Including First Look At Judge Anderson

The latest issue of Empire Magazine has a big Dredd head on the cover, and inside, our first look at Olivia Thirlby in the guise of Psi Judge Anderson.

Or at least, that’s how the cover looks on the copies mailed to subscribers. Any non-sub covers have yet to appear, so there’s a chance that those will feature another Dredd picture too. Or there’s a rumour that there will be several variant covers, each featuring a hero of 2012 – so one of them would be Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man, etc.

I think Judge Anderson’s role is the best one in the screenplay and I hope Ms. Thirlby has done everything she can with it. The film could use the shades of character that her role brings, beyond all of the slamming and blamming.

Thanks to the 2000AD fan blog for the scans. The blog also notes that Empire also features a double page spread of:

Dredd kicking a door down which is AMAZING and would silence even the harshest critic so far.

The hard copy will be with subscribers now or soon, and on UK shelves from Thursday. Dredd will reach cinemas in late 2012, with a US release set for September.
