Pete Travis' 'Dredd' has been another very under the radar movie with no trailer yet, but slowly some new images of Karl Urban and 'Game Of Thrones' Lena Headly are eeking out. This version of the Sylvester Stallone movie is said to be vastly different which is a very good thing.
'Dredd' is that reboot that many are not paying a lot of attention to, and even the studio seems to be keeping it very under the radar since there's been no teaser trailer and it opens in September. Even the Rian Johnson/Joseph Gordon-Levitt 'Looper' has had three teaser trailers just for its teaser trailer hit! Pete Travis has assured everyone that his 'Dredd' will be 'a major departure' from the Sylvester Stallone 'Judge Dredd' from back in the day which should make people happier. Still it's been met with a pretty much collective sigh probably due to a summer chock full of 'The Avengers' (which will play into the summer months easily making Peter Berg's 'Battleship' have some rough seas over here), 'The Dark Knight Rises' and even 'The Amazing Spider-Man' plus there's another big reboot in August with Colin Farrel's 'Total Recall'. That's quite a load of competition, but at least from the images, it definitely looks like it'll be way more gritty and darker than the original.
