alltho it looks really beautiful cinematography wise, the trailer alone is so full of cheese, that you could fill a room with it. paired with the changed for changes sake costume, i am not confident that this will be good
It will inevitably be accused of ripping off "The Raid: Redemption".
WOW! That looks FANTASTIC! My opinion has completely changed.
Uh....no, wait, I'm wrong, no, actually it looks worse than I feared.
One of the huge appeals of MegaCity 1 has always been its glorious visuals, but this ugly, spread-out shanty-town megalopolis is bleak in the extreme. The story will have to rock extra hard to make up for that, but it looks like an incredibly straight, cheesy actioner. I guess time will tell.
Hmmmm...full trailer has left me feeling meh......
Robocop 2 drug storyline, looks like lots of the action will be inside the tower block, Leana Bleedin' Heady, (who gets right on my nipple ends....)Megacity 1 looks like a giant district 9......it all felt a bit fan-film to me.....
I dunno, i was hoping to be wowed by this....
Dredd Exclusive Trailer Debut [HD] - YouTube
Better quality upload (including HD) from Machinima
The production design and quality definitely should have been higher. The comparison to The Raid is inevitable but apparently script to Dredd was already written couple of years back.
trailer looks good but his voice is to light compairing to sly's
but at least he doesn't sound drunk
When did Dredd become Blade Runner?
I'm pretty disappointed with what I've seen. Mega-City One looks totally underwhelming, and desolate. The Lawmaster bikes look cheap and silly. Urban looks like he'll be a good Dredd, but that's the only promising thing I see in the trailer.
Might debut at Comic-Con. Just my Two-cents.
I'M IN FOR OPENING NIGHT!!
I never read the original comics or have been a big fan of Judge Dredd. After this trailer I am ready to become one. Story needs to start out small like this, which I hope leads to a second more EPIC movie. I understand people have there issues. The theme seems to be that of 'The Raid' and a splash of Robocop, but why is that a bad thing? The idea of Judge Dredd knocking off a Power Player establishes to those who don't know him why he is a bad ass and why you should give a crap about him as a character. If this movie can't deliver those two things then it has failed before it has even hit the screens in all of it's 'Real 3D' glory.
I haven't read through this whole thread, but that trailer for "The Raid: Redemption" was sweet!

I liked the trailer a lot! I just wish people would stop comparing it to the raid:redemption. As Vivek pointed out the script was written years ago and it started filming before the raid.
As a lifelong Dredd fan I can appreciate a real world approach to the property ( a la Nolan and Batman) but there seems nothing to make this jump out and shout DREDD to me other than the badly fitting helmets. I have to agree with other posters that this looks like Dreddstrict 9. Shame really.
Gareth Evans director of The Raid tweeted the following few days ago.
"‘Dredd’ looks great, not concerned at all about similarities. That film was in production around the same time we finished The Raid."
"Regardless, Urban looks kickass and I love the scale of it and the beauty of that muzzle flash burst. Can’t wait to see it!"
Then someone added the following which he retweeted.
this “@Greygor: @ghuwevans To be fair Dredd started filming 4 or 5 months before The Raid. Not, as you say, that it matters”
That's completely awesome that he did that.
Still excited about Dredd. The fact that the Stallone version had redeeming points despite being so awful makes me think that the source material might well work on the screen.
I'm having a hard time believing in the character as played by Urban. I like him, think he's a good actor, but when he says "I am the law" it just doesn't seem...intimidating. Not that Stallone was amazing or anything, but at least he had the stature to 'fill out' the role.
Here's to having low hopes so as to be impressed!!
It looks good,I'll go see it for sure.
And ANYTHING will be better then that mess that was the 95 version-I call the late 80's and 1990's "we can make anything cool with an action star!!!" ummm...no,no you can't.
A few shots from the trailer I thought were worth posting for prop stuff, or because they reminded me of the comic.
"What is he on about?", some of you are probably thinking. It's quite simple, really. What we have here is another example of one of my biggest film-making pet peeves, what I like to call the "George Lucas Flip™", due to the number of times it's used on the Original Star Wars Trilogy.
What I'm talking about is a scene that's been horizontally flipped to be a mirror image of the way it was filmed, because the Director wants to change which way the on-screen motion moves. Here, as in the SWOT, the technique is betrayed by an asymmetrical costume design.
This is the way the scene is SUPPOSED to look, the way it was filmed... notice that Dredd's badge is over his LEFT breast, as it should be:
And here's the scene as it appears in the trailer... you'll notice his badge is over his RIGHT breast because you're seeing a mirror image!
I hate this crap. It's lazy and sloppy. If you want the action to move from right-to-left, instead of left-to-right, FILM IT THAT WAY TO BEGIN WITH!
I am not sure on the whole idea of the main bad guy being a girl, just seems odd to me for some reason, regardless I loved the original so I will see this.
