A full look at Judge Dredd in his new cover shoot

07.25.2011

We've caught a glimpse at his gynormous helmet, but now we have our first official look at the rest of him on the cover of Empire for this month as Karl Urban suits up in full gear.

It's not quite as over the top as the original iteration, as there's notably less gold, but there are definite similarities. I think the old helmet was actually better however, as I don't understand why there are pieces that criss cross into his sightline. And it still seems a bit too big for his body.

What do you make of the new Dredd costume?

Extra Tidbit: It must physically hurt for Karl Urban to frown that hard.

Who Cares????

I'd rather see Spiderman or Batman. I could care less about Judge Dredd remake. Oh and the costume is lame looking

Seriously, how many people here are hardcore Dredd fans? The Helmet look awesome. it is an all purpose helmet, motorcycle and tactical. if it looked different you'd complain that it did not look comic accurate... seriously as long as the film is better than the stallone shitfest, i will be happy.

Junk

This costume is garbage, they went with a comic book helmet, and a realistic tactical suit. The helmet doesn't look realistic at all, if you look hard enough it even looks like the red x in the visor covers your actual eyes. Helmet needs to be smaller and realistic

I have the subscriber's exclusive cover of Empire

which is much better. The cover above looks pretty awful, but the 3 pages of images within the article have me completely sold.
The fact John Wagner has given this adaptation his blessing after having seen a rough cut, has me very excited.

Works for me, it looks relatively close to the comic version.

Looks cool, but Dredd aside, Empire usually has really high quality cover editing but that is one of the worst I've ever seen.

Are we sure that's a picture of a human being? It looks a hell of a lot like an action figure to me.

Although the helmet looks awesome and all, the most important thing is that he keeps the damn thing ON!

And yeah, Urban looks great, the movie looks great, so far EVERYTHING looks great!

This does not look like Empire's best photoshop work to me. It looks more like a Tiger Beat to me.

Not sure about the look, but with the creator of the character and some serious film talent involved, one would think this one has a much better tone.

I'm not gonna judge a movie based on a picture. Alex Garland is an awesome writer so I have faith in him. I think Urban is a bad ass and the suit looks great to me.

Looks okay except for the helmet.
What's that cross thing in the middle of his helmet lens? How is he supposed to be able to see? Makes him look cross eyed somehow.
I hope they're not redesigning the uniform just for the sake of distancing from the Stallone version. That would be a mistake.

Well, whether or not it's "supposed" to look that that way, it looks dumb. It's essentially blocking his vision.

Regardless, I've seen renditions where that cross thingy isn't quite as pronounced.

Now, did you actually sigh when you typed that, or did you just type the word sigh to denote a teenage level of snark?

Is there a 80 year old under that helmet? That´s some granny-faced Dredd.

Once again you have to wonder what generation of crappy, coffee house artists are they approving to work on these films. Did some stupid little suit actually think this was a good approximation and redesign of Judge Dredd?!

I am a fan of Judge Dredd – I just recently got the collected case files vol 1 and even though everyone hates the Sly movie, I like it. As a movie I think its fun. As a good representation of Dredd, it wasn’t the best. This movie seems like it’s more faithful, but then you get this costume and it’s really nothing like the comic. At least Sly’s costume was wicked, and I agree with others when they say that he was perfect for the role back then. You need the big shoulder pads – I mean google

I like Urban as an actor and he claims to be a fan of JD, so hopefully the movie will be good. But when it comes to comics in film, I need BOTH STORY and VISUALS. I want the costume, or at least the parts that make it iconic. Like Batman needs his cape and cowl. This image looks like a fan-made Dredd costume – even though a fan probably would have made it more accurate.

I prefer the Stallone costume. I'm not hating on this film or anything, I just like how Stallone looked - as though he'd stepped straight out of the comics. Larger than life.

I have faith in Urban...

But I'm terrified that he'll actually pronounce "law" properly.
LAAAAAAAAAW!
