Judge Dredd Movie Still

So the first image of Karl Urban as Judge Dredd has been released and we're less than a week into filming...


There's been mainly a positive reaction, but I'm all kinds of excited about this, just great news for the comic.

This is a really quick and possibly wrong extrapolation of what I think we are looking at in the still.


I also think the respirator will pull down to create a fully enclosed helmet as per the inset... don't know about the mechanics of it, but it'll look pretty cool, certainly quite menacing if Dredd was striding out of some gas-filled underpass.

Thought I'd just share (again) my speculative concept from Feb 09... I think what we've got is a lot better than that... although there are lots of similarities.

Looks good! The shoulder pad design reminds me of early Ezquerra. Hard to tell what they have done with the eagle on this view though- either way looks like a pretty believable, functional design.

I'm late, but I wanted to give you some props not only for the speculative design based on this pic (Motorcycle Riot Gear - really crazy but absolutely apropos when you think about it!), but also on how close your preliminary design came.

Also, as I'm sure you know - the eagle is definitely in, it's just 'functional'. I'm guessing this means no pointy business. Not a problem in my book.
