Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
Courtesy of the Russian website Stark Industries comes a new image of Karl Urban as Judge Dredd from the pages of Total Film magazine.
Dredd, director Pete Travis’ take on the futuristic law enforcer created for 2000 AD by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra, also stars Olivia Thirlby, Lena Headey and Jason Cope. The image of the scowling star only seems to reenforce Wagner’s recent assertion that, “Karl Urban will not remove his helmet and will not kiss his co-star.”
Dredd opens in 3D on Sept. 21.
DREDD takes us to the wild streets of Mega City One, the lone oasis of quasi-civilization on Cursed Earth. Judge Dredd (Karl 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.
