Dredd’s first big screen appearance, courtesy of Sylvester Stallone in 1995, may have had the big Hollywood budget but lacked all the elements that made Dredd unique. Seventeen years down the line, Mega City One’s greatest lawman returns to the screen in Dredd. Have the makers learned the lessons from the last time? Let’s find out. Continue reading

Dredd had one of its first showings at San Diego Comic Con this week and garnered mostly favourable reviews.

The year’s forgotten comic book adaption, Dredd, has dropped a few new pics. That’s all well and good, but when are we going to get a trailer or even an official poster? The fact that it’s all being kept so secretive makes me worry, especially with previous reports of unrest behind the scenes. Here’s hoping this is all silly talk and we get footage to enjoy and soon. Anyway, to the pics. Continue reading
