DREDD Storyboard Chase Scene Featuring JUDGE DREDD

DREDD Storyboard Chase Scene Featuring JUDGE DREDD

A member of the website 2000AD Online has posted a storyboard of a chase scene involving Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) on his vehicle, the Lawmaster.

When the best thing you can say about this movie so far is that Karl Urban won't take off his helmet in the movie, that is saying too much. Like all comic book movies I want this to do extremely well, but so far for a movie that began filming all the way back in 2010 we sure haven't seen much. How in the world are we now in 2012 and we don't have any footage from this movie? Add in the fact that this movie was filmed in 3D, but on a shoestring budget of $45 million and I'm not feeling very confident.

What little we know is that Judge Dredd's home of Megacity will be a much darker and grittier locale than what we saw in the 1995 Sylvester Stallone version. And the heart of the story is Dredd training a rookie, Judge Anderson (Olivia Thirlby) and seeing if she has what it takes to make it in their futuristic world.

Synopsis - 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.

Dredd will hit theaters September 21st, 2012

I can't wait to see how the city looks on film.

They filmed from November 2010 until March 2011. It's release date was rescheduled to September 2012 -from the original date of Spring 2012- to avoid clashing with the all ready blockbuster packed Summer.

The film ain't out until September -that's nearly 9 months away- how many films not out until then have trailers? Total Recall is out nearly 2 months before Dredd and we've seen no trailer either. There'll probably be a teaser round March.

The lower budget shouldn't really bother too much -it has the same production crew from District 9 but larger budget- and since it was shot in the new Cape Town Studios the price is half the budget of a normal 'Hollywood' FX film -due to relative lower South African costs of labour/economy- so you could say the budget is closer to $90 million. There are no 'stars' either to pay whereas Stallone's 'ego' fee soaked up $20 million of the '95 Dredd film's $90 million budget.

Some of these abuse reporters need to chill out. Yossarian's comment is whining? Seriously? Grow some skin people.

My concern about this film is that the few images we have seen don't look that futuristic and I still miss seeing the signature Dredd chin. Urban's chin just doesn't hack it and that is the dominant feature we should see for Dredd being he wears the helmet the whole time.

are u f**king serious, cause the budget is low the movie wont be good. what a silly thing to say to be honest. the old classic sci-fi movies like Aliens, The Terminator, Predator, etc was lower budget movies and they become cult classic.

also sci-fi film during modern times who had low budget also become cult classic Pitch Black, District 9, Serenity, etc. so budget dont mean nothing only the director and screen writer vision makes a good movie.

Since when did a budget make a movie? One of the all time favorites is Blade Runner which was made with 28 Million and despite the low take a the box as jazzman said became a cult classic. Heck the original Star Wars was made on 11 million and has made over 700 million. Give it a chance before dismissing it as crap!
INSTANTJUSTICE - 1/2/2012, 3:11 PM
$28 million in 1981/82 adjusted for today's inflation would be about $110 million and making Blade Runner in today's industry would probably be twice that.
jazzman - 1/2/2012, 3:30 PM

Pitch Black, District 9, Serenity are all low budget movies and they are good movies
airbeyonder18 - 1/2/2012, 3:32 PM
I can't wait for this movie!
INSTANTJUSTICE - 1/2/2012, 3:45 PM

Yep, they are -as I pointed out earlier- but that wasn't my point. Blade Runner was most definitely not a cheap film for it's time. It was one of the most expensive.

The Mega City in the original film was the ONLY good thing about the movie!
INSTANTJUSTICE - 1/2/2012, 4:31 PM
Only in the wide shots. The rest of it looked like they were running up and down the same street from different angles and that was when they bothered to stay in the city at all, which was very little.
MasterApoc81 - 1/2/2012, 5:29 PM
stallone didnt suck ......and karl urban will do good .........budget isnt that big of deal if the story and the action scenes are well done and played out.....i mean maybe they didnt use as much cgi in this film is why it doesnt have that big a budget ....there have been plenty of action films that were awesome without cgi..............lets give it a chance and i think Ghost rider 2 will actually make up for the first.........especially with the looks of a good story line.........i think all the sequels look like they got the hang of it....GI JOE looks more too its roots...wrath of the titans looks amazing ....i mean we will have to wait and seee i suppose

Sometimes its good that filmmakers take time to make movie.
It doesnt necessarily mean that they are [frick]ing things up.
Jolt17 - 1/2/2012, 9:21 PM
Looks pretty nice. And low budget obviously isn't an indication that the movie will rightly suck; it may won't be up there with the 'big' CBMs of 2012 either, but this can be good enough. I can't wait to see more.

Who the hell is Dredd ?
manumansion - 1/3/2012, 7:15 AM
been a big fan for years and really want some solid info about this movie. the thing that concerns me is the lack of info from 200ad,the comic that publishes dredd. are they trying to distance themselves from it in case we get another stallone let down? or are they just playing it cool cos they know the material is good?
INSTANTJUSTICE - 1/3/2012, 8:18 AM

The 'editorial' of 2000AD the comic and website have no say/involvement with the film at the moment in terms of marketing, production or promotion...yet. The only persons involved are John Wagner (consultant producer) and the owners of 2000AD,'Rebellion', who tend to leave the running of 2000AD to the staff and don't interfere.

DNA, IMGlobal and Lionsgate are in charge of marketing for the film. 2000AD will become involved in the marketing when the campaign officially begins in Spring.

good points instant justice!
still really annoying though when you loyally buy a comic for years and can only get pics and info from other sources, ie buying empire.
