Dredd images put our fears – and the spirit of Stallone – to rest…

February 8th, 2012 by Marc Comments

These pics were out a few days ago of Karl Urban as Judge Dredd. And we must say, we’re impressed. As a bunch of guys who grew up on a diet of Dredd and 2000AD, these images certainly look like they are aware of the feel of the source material and do seem to be making an effort to stary true, although co-creator Matt Wagner’s involvement in the movie should have been enough for us.

Urban certainly looks the part aas Joe Dredd and, providing he can keep the helmet on, this could well be a decent effort. It certainly hasn’t much to beat in Stallone’s ill judged – if often beautiful to look at – adaptation in 1995

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
