Big Joe gets his makeup done.
Chopper. Satanus. Dark Judges. But will any of this ever happen?
Oh... this was very interesting.
Between the talking head clips there’s quite a lot of new clips from Dredd in this featurette. And because you need it, there’s also a primer on the creation and development of the character. And there we had Jason Kingsley saying that “we need” a police force like the Judges and that Dredd does the […]
Quick, while the marketing people are still asleep!
This clip from Pete Travis’ Dredd shows off the look of the slow-motion drug use sequences well. And it also showcases just how bloody the film can be. Note that the production design in the clip is, to a very large extent, naturalistic stuff, barely augmented from what you might find in the world today. […]
Dredd screened at Comic-Con just a couple of hours back and I was there. It was certainly rather interesting.
Yesterday saw the Dredd panel at the London Film and Comic Con, the centrepiece of which was a full and meaty scene from the film. It was, according to one of our pairs of spying eyes, not a scene in the widely leaked screenplay, but something added in reshoots. The scene apparently took place on […]
He is the law, every last subsection and paragraph of it.
Prejudging time. This Comic-Con round-up video from Machinima includes the first officially released footage from Dredd. You’ll recognise one of the scenes from the pre-viz material we were looking at a couple of weeks back. The clips in question start at 2:50. UPDATE: And here’s just the ten seconds, to loop until your heart is […]
Three new images from the set of Dredd have popped up online. Mega-City One looks pretty dirty, as you’d expect, but there seems to be a polish grocery store.* Sounds a lot like my old neighbourhood in many ways. Thanks to the Paradise FX Facebook page for the pics. *Actually seems to be a bakery […]
When Judge Joe’s new movie Dredd finally comes along in September, we’ll be looking for it to wipe the bad taste of Danny Cannon out of our mouths. Chief among its weapons will be Karl Urban, in the title role, and Lena Headey as the film’s antagonist, Madeline “Ma Ma” Madrigal. Described in the script […]
I know how important this will be to some of you, so here you go: Dredd has been given an R rating by the MPAA. Those scallywags gave this rationale for the rating in their latest bulletin: Rated R for strong bloody violence, language, drug use and some sexual content. So, there you go. You […]
The new Judge Dredd film is using post production digital FX in a number of ways. See for yourself.
Storyboard artist Frederick Mpuuga has shared one page of his storyboard work from the upcoming Judge Dredd movie, Dredd. He’s called it a “car chase” but as you’ll see, Lawmaster bikes are involved. This comes from very early in the film, as the Judges head to Peach Trees Block where a good 85% of the […]
A number of behind-the-scenes pictures and videos from the shoot of Dredd, Pete Travis and Alex Garland‘s Judge Dredd movie, have been posted online. They come from the collection of Lone Wolf Grips, the company providing all of the camera rigs, tracks and grip services for the film. These two videos show the camera rigs […]
We reported at the weekend how director Pete Travis had, apparently, been removed from the head of Dredd, our new Judge Dredd movie, and that writer Alex Garland had stepped up to take the reigns. The story was sourced from The LA Times, who have now published an official statement, jointly signed by Travis and […]
To me, Pete Travis immediately seemed like an odd choice to direct Dredd, the new Judge Dredd film, but perhaps an interesting one. His work on TV once impressed Paul Greengrass enough that they teamed up for the film Omagh, a pretty powerful and certainly promising drama about the Real IRA bombing in the town […]
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 […]
