The future America is an irradiated waste land. On its East Coast, running from Boston to Washington DC, lies Mega City One- a vast, violent metropolis where criminals rule the chaotic streets. The only force of order lies with the urban cops called “Judges” who possess the combined powers of judge, jury and instant executioner. Known and feared throughout the city, Dredd (Karl Urban) is the ultimate Judge, challenged with ridding the city of its latest scourge – a dangerous drug epidemic that has users of “Slo-Mo” experiencing reality at a fraction of its normal speed.

During a routine day on the job, Dredd is assigned to train and evaluate Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), a rookie with powerful psychic abilities thanks to a genetic mutation. A heinous crime calls them to a neighborhood where fellow Judges rarely dare to venture- a 200 story vertical slum controlled by prostitute turned drug lord Ma-Ma (Lena Headey) and her ruthless clan. When they capture one of the clan’s inner circle, Ma-Ma overtakes the compound’s control center and wages a dirty, vicious war against the Judges that proves she will stop at nothing to protect her empire. With the body count climbing and no way out, Dredd and Anderson must confront the odds and engage in the relentless battle for their survival. Dredd 3D stars Karl Urban as Judge Dredd, Olivia Thirlby as Judge Anderson, Lena Headey as Madeline Madrigal, Domhnall Gleeson as Travis Synders, Langley Kirkwood as Judge Lex, Francis Chouler as Judge Guthrie and Deobia Oparei as Judge T.J. Alvarez! The film hits cinemas September 21st, 2012!

I really hope this movie is kinda good at least!

For what it is, it's getting great reception so far from people who have seen it early.
SimyJo - 8/10/2012, 11:20 AM
For Heaven's sakes, they can't even spell 'Judgement' right. ^^

...(and don't say its U.S spelling because the comic is U.K born 'n' bred since '77).


:p

Can you imagine if Clint Eastwood and his chin were young enough to take on the role - thinking about some of the delivery of lines in Unforgiven and his presence in the role when he got drunk and lapsed into his vicious gun-for-hire former self (following the death of Morgan Freeman's character) - A middle-aged Clint would be a great Dredd.

The Law is coming for us all.

You're wrong, on both counts.

JUDGMENT without an E is the spelling used in LEGAL context as in a 'JUDGMENT passed by a JUDGE' and is used in both the US and the UK courts. It's not strictly a US spelling. So spelling it as JUDGMENT is more apt than not in this case considering who the character is supposed to represent.

JUDGEMENT with an E is used in all other contexts outside the courts.

Cant wait.

I still wish they would have used the Judge part in the title too thou.
Its just more cooler to me.
INSTANTJUSTICE - 8/10/2012, 1:27 PM
In Russia, it gets the full title JUDGE DREDD. The tagline at the top is I AM THE LAW.


AlexDeLarge87 - 8/10/2012, 1:34 PM
Go Russia!:)
SimyJo - 8/10/2012, 2:02 PM
The Russian poster owns so far...

@INSTANTJUSTICE:
"You're wrong, on both counts...."

Yeaaah, not buyin' it. Sorry. ^^
The 'T2:Judgment Day' poster had neither judges nor courtrooms in it in a legal context. Its just lazy U.S centric spelling from Hollywood studios going out to other English speaking audiences.

@Ignore facts if you so wish:


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judgment_(law)DlimJO


The fact is 'JUDGMENT' is far more apt for DREDD than the everyday 'JUDGEMENT'.
SimyJo - 8/10/2012, 2:34 PM
I'm not ignoring the facts, I'm merely saying I don't agree with you that that was the studio's motive for the spelling.
The fact that this new DREDD film is about a Judge is neither here nor there considering U.S centric spelling (the T2 poster case-in-point).
jimoakley666 - 8/10/2012, 2:54 PM
I have to agree with SimyJo on this one. The amount of people who say the English use the English language incorrectly is [frick]ing moronic. Death to them all and long live the OED!
Noble6 - 8/10/2012, 3:00 PM
I'm betting a flop like Total Recall.
KeithM - 8/10/2012, 3:17 PM
@SimJo: But isn't MC1 in America and Judge Dredd an American, even if it is a British comic? So even if you don't buy IJ's explanation, the American spelling would still be milieu-appropriate.

Are you Dreddhead in disguise btw? This seems like the petty kind of 'does it actually matter?' bollocks that he comes out with.
SimyJo - 8/10/2012, 6:51 PM
@KeithM:

No, Megacity 1 is set in what USED to be called America;

"Since the abolition of democratic government in America in 2070, Mega-City One has been a dictatorship run by the Justice Department. It subsequently became an independent city-state following the break-up of the United States ..."

And no I'm not Dreddhead, I have my own particular brand and *flavour (*note British spelling of flavour) of petty bollocks. ;-)

No, its just annoying to other English speakers, particularly those who speak the mother-tongue here in England, to have bastardised U.S spelling thrown around without respect by Hollywood studios who couldn't care less about other audiences.
No offence. :)
bhorwith22 - 8/10/2012, 8:20 PM
That is the most un-3D poster ever.
Jolt17 - 8/10/2012, 11:20 PM
Pretty cool. Interestingly enough, what I did back then has a similar concept to this.

Motive would only matter if the US poster was incorrect, it's not. The UK posters all have their own versions, stop crying.

Considering the amount of words the English language stole and bastardised like a magpie from French and other languages, it's rather hypocritical of those who speak the "mother-tongue" to criticise. Typical ignorant arrogance.

ermmm....daredevil much??
Jollem - 8/11/2012, 4:16 AM
hmmm....if the poster read; "joodgemente is coming" i wouldn't care. i might think it weird, but i wouldn't care. lionsgate has treated me pretty well for the most part. i'm looking forward to this
KeithM - 8/11/2012, 4:43 AM
@SimJo: But I'm British too and it doesn't annoy me, so by all means say "me/I" but less of the "we". You don't speak for the British, the English, or even for you and your mates down the pub/in school. Just yourself. And it is petty nitpicking. Pulling me up pedantically on the use of tense for example - is/was America - is very petty and doesn't answer nor invalidate my point. The American spelling is still milieu-appropriate.

If the spelling were actually incorrect then you might have a point, but it isn't. No more than color or flavor are if used in an American context or setting.

And yeah, all this nonsense about the 'mother tongue' sounds a bit xenophobic and a little like cultural snobbery to me. It's an American poster for the American market, that has NO BEARING WHATSOEVER on the quality of the film.

Seriously, listen to yourself. If you really are a Brit, you should have some capacity for self-reflection and self-mockery and should be able to take a step back and see how much of an arse this non-protest makes you seem.

SimyJo - 8/11/2012, 4:54 AM
Agree to disagree, and unlike both you KeithM and INSTANTJUSTICE - I am capable of doing that without resorting to insults.
You are both imagining anti-American xenophopia where there is none.
I'm just saying 'Hollywood studios' are bloody lazy when it comes to considering other cultural audiences when their product is distributed globally.
KeithM - 8/11/2012, 5:33 AM
Really? Your use of the phrase 'mother tongue' immediately places everything you said into 'anti-American xenophobia' territory with overtones of cultural snobbery. It was such an unnecessary thing to say.

So while your last sentence might have been what you had intended 'just saying', what you actually said didn't. It said "my culture is superior and I don't like it when Hollywood does it differently". Or something like that.

If that isn't what you meant, then fair enough, but perhaps choose less inflammatory language to make your point next time?

Please note The BRITISH use of the term.

Your dismissal over even the possibility that the filmmakers were well aware of this and used it deliberately and, let's not lose sight of this, CORRECTLY only leads to the impression that you are coming at this from an American-xenophobic stance rather than an objective one.

Really. That link should be the last word on this. The wording on the poster is CORRECT for an American OR a British audience.

This is the point where you concede gracefully.
INSTANTJUSTICE - 8/11/2012, 6:07 AM
SimyJo: "I'm just saying 'Hollywood studios' are bloody lazy when it comes to considering other cultural audiences when their product is distributed globally."


Hollywood makes films mostly for the US, starring Americans, that's their biggest market audience and it's also where US films get the largest cut of money from theatres so marketing campaigns are geared to appeal there first just like it happens for any other country.

The Lionsgate posters are only intended for a US audience since Lionsgate only have the rights to distribute the film in the US.

Entertainment FIlms are distributing the film in the UK & Ireland and they reformat the Lionsgate posters with the Anglo-centric JUDGEMENT spelling so your argument is really just nationalistic bullshyt.


By the way, I'm not American.
KeithM - 8/11/2012, 6:13 AM
IJ: If that's true, then the British version would then be, if one were to be pedantic, wrong. :)

INSTANTJUSTICE - 8/11/2012, 6:17 AM
These are the Lionsgate/Entertainment posters for Britain & Ireland:





KeithM - 8/11/2012, 6:28 AM
Man how dumb are they? They can't even spell Judgment correctly.

:)
KeithM - 8/11/2012, 6:30 AM
But is also does make SimyJo look a little foolish either way.

Talk about jumping the gun.
KeithM - 8/11/2012, 10:30 AM
In SimyJo's favour, the UK version changing the spelling actually backs up his point that it was just the Americanized (sic ;)) version than a play on the judicial aspect - or that Entertainment Films just didn't get that at all and just assumed it was the Americanised (sic) version.

Still jumped the gun on his 'lazy Hollywood' point, but the UK version using the non-judicial spelling doesn't help ours it has to be said. :)
INSTANTJUSTICE - 8/11/2012, 12:12 PM
Neither spellings are wrong. Both are legitimate.

His basic complaint was that the spelling was wrong when it wasn't.

To make it a complaint is for the sake of complaining.
SimyJo - 8/11/2012, 1:14 PM
@KeithM:

"Really? Your use of the phrase 'mother tongue' immediately places everything you said into 'anti-American xenophobia' territory with overtones of cultural snobbery. It was such an unnecessary thing to say".

What? - No is doesn't. It IS the mother tongue, fact.
If anyone takes that as xenophobia they are projecting their own insecurities and thats not my problem.

Here, try this book by my favourite American author, a brilliant writer with a great dry-wit.
(I have most of his books but prefer his ones based on foreign travel);

It'll be a good film, it's something I think we can all agree on.
SimyJo - 8/11/2012, 5:11 PM
I hope so!. The 90's film was ok and very much in the style of 90's big-budget blockbusters back then. A big elaborate set, vehicles and very much the comic made flesh.

The new one (i think) is taking a leaf out of the 'realism' school of film adaptation, a style thats very much "now", and it seems to have the support of 2000AD's creators with it being Über-violent.
INSTANTJUSTICE - 8/11/2012, 7:24 PM
Well in the comic-world Dredd was always closer to reality than something like Batman.


The Stallone film was as camp as a row of tents and looked fake and plastic rather than as a good translation of the comic.



I think with Nolan it's the opposite, he being British and being of the generation that grew up with Dredd & 2000AD meant he brought a good bit of 'Dredd' to his version of Batman, especially in the last film.
KeithM - 8/12/2012, 2:28 AM
@SimyJo: If anything, the British 'mother tongue' is Welsh. English came much, much later and was brought in by immigrants and invaders. But let's not quibble and I'm bored of arguing, so let's kiss and make up. :)
SimyJo - 8/12/2012, 6:22 AM
Ok, but you wear the heels this time. :D
