After near silence the past several months, some new info and images are finally starting to leak out from the new Judge Dredd reboot. The latest? Five action-packed, badass stills.
We haven't heard a lot about the upcoming Judge Dredd reboot, but producer Stuart Ford has now opened up about what we can expect—and it seems comic fans should be a lot happier than they were with the 1995 Sylvester Stallone effort.
Disney's John Carter has not had an easy path towards theaters, with would-be audiences either confused about what it was or thinking that it's woefully derivative. And as Pixar's first live-action flick, there's a lot riding on its success. But other films have overcome even worse buzz to become legitimate box-office successes.
We've only seen a few brief glimpses of Karl Urban's helmeted stare from the Judge Dredd reboot so far, but a new set of photos is about to change all that. Prepare yourself for big guns, big armor and a very bloody head shot.

When you consider the fact that most rock stars try to pull off a superhero persona anyway, it's no surprise that everyone from Peter Parker to the Boy Wonder has inspired a few hit (and several deep cut) rock 'n roll tunes over the years. Heck, everyone from Prince to the Black Lips has wanted in on the action at some point.
Writer and co-creator of Judge Dredd John Wagner has never had very nice things to say about the 1995 film adaptation of his comic creation, but at least he gets another shot at a good flick when Dredd is released this year. He's already said the film's screenwriter is on the right track, but what does he think about the film overall?
Sometimes, you can't send in the Mobile Infantry or the Colonial Marines or Starfleet or a whole bloody Clone Army. Sometimes, the only thing that'll get the job done is a select group of hardened warriors who can be trusted to get the job done, no matter what.
It was reported just the other day that director Pete Travis had been dismissed from the Karl Urban-starring Judge Dredd reboot, and that writer-producer Alex Garland was running the show. But a joint statement from the two aims to put a stop to the rumor mill.
It sounded like a geek dream come true: Erase the memory of the shoddy Sylvester Stallone flick by hiring a hot actor with major genre cred, the guy who wrote 28 Days Later, and a promising young director. Then why, after the film has wrapped, is there an ugly battle waging over the fate of Judge Dredd?
