Dredd releases another batch of images

Karl Urban tries the helmet on for size

Dredd has released a new collection of stills, featuring Karl Urban looking very badass indeed as the titular law enforcer.

The new images look extremely gritty and dark of hue, supporting what Lena Headey was saying yesterday about the world of the film being, "so dirty and dark". Seems as though Mega-City One isn't exactly brimming with desirable housing…

As in the initial images released last year, Urban certainly looks the part as the granite-jawed Dredd, while his fellow Judges looks pretty mean as well. Indeed, Urban could have some competition in the jawline stakes, with Langly Kirkwood's Judge Lex looking similarly hard as nails.

The film will see Dredd going up against the fiendish Madeleine Madrigal (Headey), better known as Ma-Ma, as she and her terrorist organisation flood Mega-City One with the powerful reality-altering drug, Slo-Mo.

Directed by Pete Travis, Dredd will open in the UK on 7 September 2012. Now, how about that trailer, eh? Eh?


What do you think of the new images? Tell us, below...

      I'm pretty sure TF had them up before as well. I saw a few (really bad quality) clips online and it did look pretty good.. quietly looking forward to this.

      Yeah, I saw everyone of these images in Empire last summer, probably saw some of them in Total Film as well. I'm a bit disappointed you thought these were new.

      It amazes me that anyone could summon up enough emotion as to actually feel 'disappointed' about something like this. So the photos aren't new. Never mind. These may be trying times, but I'm sure we'll all get over it.

      What, so we can't release films on certain dates in history? Should we postpone Prometheus because June 1, 0193 Roman Emperor Didius Julianus was assassinated (Yes, I googled that).. Dave.. that did make me laugh

      I don't need to stick up for anybody.. Dave has proved time and again that he can look after himself. I thought his comment was funny and so I said so.

      Ha! Sometimes I think he's so stupid you could tell him it's chilly outside and he'd rush out with a spoon.

      not sure if im looking forward to this, i like karl urban & think he can do a good job, but i enjoyed the sly stallone film as well. and as a none judge dredd comic fan i feel they are taking it very seriously (understandably i suppose for the fans) either way i'll def be giving it a shot :)
