In the era of so many remakes, there does come a time when you’re glad to see a movie remade and DREDD is one of them. After the dreadful Stallone version of the 1990′s this movie has been crying out for another chance to prove Dredd is a worthy addition to the ever increasing comic book sub genre. Being from Scotland as well as a massive reader of the comic when I was younger in the 1980′s, I believe that the world’s favourite anti-hero does deserve a chance. Fingers crossed Dredd will keep his helmet on. If read the comics you’ll know that Mega City’s lawman rarely revealed his face and with Karl Urban as the Judge (he has said himself he is a fan), he doesn’t plan to show face.
We’ve not seen much on this movie, no footage just yet and it seems it is still scheduled for a December UK. There’s no American release date so don’t be surprised if we have to wait until that has been sorted.
