This trailer is the law

This is the moment that I’m sure you all have been waiting for.  I present to you the first trailer for the Judge Dredd movie.

Judge Dredd appears in the British comic 2000 A.D., and was created by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra.  Unfortunately, this isn’t the first Judge Dredd.  As I hope you don’t recall, back in 1995, Sylvester Stallone tried his hand at the character.  The movie was a convoluted mess, dealing with some genetic engineering and something about his brother.  Oh, and Rob Schneider was with him for most of the movie, because that makes sense.  But really, the movie tried to be overly emotional with not enough pointless violence.  Kind of like the Thomas Jane Punisher.  This movie looks to be the “Punisher:  War Zone” to the previous movie.  Lots of violence.

Of course, this movie still looks silly.  And if one of your selling points is “stunning slow motion photography sequences,” then you might be reaching a bit.  Besides, who do you think you are?  Zack Snyder?

Dredd opens on September 21st, and was directed by Pete Travis (Vantage Point), written by Alex Garland (28 Days Later), and stars Lena Headey, Karl Urban, and Oliva Thirlby.

Update:  I’ve changed the embedded video.  I found it on Comic Book Resources, who were apparently linking it from G4’s Attack of the Show, but apparently, they didn’t have permission to post.  So, I’ve changed it to the Machinima link posted in the comments.



  1. Part of me likes the fact Dredd has the proper Clint Eastwood voice and the fact its being shot like a police action movie just in the future. Another part of me wonders why they’ve gone with quite a pedestrian story for a Judge Dredd movie. Im really hoping this movie is good enough to give us a sequel with the Dark Judges or something along the lines of the Block Mania story so.
