Today we get a closer look at Judge Dredd's [Karl Urban] helmet design in sculpture form directly from the portfolio of film designer Edmund Woodward. The images come courtesy of Sculpt-ed. While it may seem like a fairly unimportant aspect in the greater schemes of things, it has been a major sore spot for the 2000ad & Dredd fan-base ever since Sly Stallone's dodgy 1995 version, which for a film that cost $100 million to make you would expect a little more attention to detail. The new version looks great.
Dredd takes us to the wild streets of Mega City One, the lone oasis of quasi-civilization on Cursed Earth. Judge Dredd [Urban] is the most feared of elite Street Judges, with the power to enforce the law, sentence offenders and execute them on the spot if necessary. The endlessly inventive mind of writer Alex Garland and the frenetic vision of director Peter Travis bring Dredd to life as a futuristic neo-noir action film that returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra’s revered comic strip.
