A new featurette has surfaced for DREDD 3D, the second iteration comic adaptation from director Pete Travis, which shows off a bit of new footage interspersed with interviews from Judge Dredd creators, artists, and filmmakers. It's an interesting look into the evolution of the character and how he works in the comic book world. If you don't know anything about the character's origin or history this is a great place to start.

Take a look:

With the outstanding reviews that flooded in from Comic Con this year, I'd say that my excitement for this has piqued. A lot of folks get annoyed with the term "when done right," but I think this could potentially be a prime example of the phrase. When filmmakers care enough to do justice to the source material and take great pains to tell a story that translates to the big screen, while still embodying the essence of its origin, then that's "doing it right" in my book.

DREDD 3D, starring Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby, and Lena Headey, hits theaters on September 21, 2012.

Extra Tidbit: Michael Biehn originally auditioned for the role. I dig Urban, but it still would've been cool to see Biehn in the role. What say you?

A smart move for Lionsgate would be to put a trailer for this in front of all showings of Expendables 2. got a horrible feeling they won't though.
Can't wait for this.

I just came back from a showing of The Expendables 2, and there was indeed a trailer for this film attached to it! Great news.

This is a great featurette; that they're using this as promotional material shows a sort of dedication to the source, a desire to get the essence of the 2000 AD comics right and to put that on film without a glossy filter. Looking forward to seeing this one.

Biehn in the role about 20 years ago would have been pretty cool.
