Official Dredd Trailer
There was a whole load of citizens chasing the unofficial Dredd trailer that was leaked yesterday, I was one of them. Really what we should’ve done is just wait a few hours for this official HD trailer, it does the film so much more justice…see what I did there? It seems to me that every choice they have made with this film is the exact opposite to the Stallone version, probably a good sign, even though I do have a special place in my heart for that movie. One of the things I was worried about was the scale, Mega City One, in my opinion needs to be massive, sprawling, multi-layered, I don’t get that feeling from this trailer, gritty realism, yes but no real idea of of scale. Enough of what I think, watch the trailer and let me know what you think in the comments below or on twitter @sidekickcast. The trailer was released through machinima but as always I got this particular embed from the arsom ECBT2000AD.
Dredd is written by Alex Garland, John Wagner & Carlos Ezquerra (yes the original creators get credit), directed by Pete Travis and stars Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby and Lena Headey. UK Release date 7th September 2012.
