Here is a trailer for the remake of Judge Dredd, a 1995 futuristic epic directed by Danny Cannon and starring Sylvester Stallone as the titular character. The film also starred Diane Lane as the female love interest, Armand Assante as the diabolical villain, and Rob Schneider as the obnoxious sidekick that you constantly hope would just die, much like Rob Schneider himself. A critical and box-office failure at the time of its release, Judge Dredd was panned for being misguided, uneven, and unfaithful to its source material, as well as shamelessly ripping off previous science fiction films that have achieved classic status, such as Blade Runner and Total Recall. But the film has since become a guilty pleasure among many for its campiness, and because it was just fun to watch!
This new one looks very promising, with stunning matte paintings, and old-school R-rated action scenes that many films of late are lacking due to studio intervention and their wishes to make a film appeal to a broader audience in order to increase ticket sales, sacrificing the hardcoreness that could make a movie great. This new film is directed by English filmmaker Pete Travis, whose credits include the 2009 television (with limited theatrical release) historical film Endgame and the fabulous 2008 political thriller Vantage Point. Karl Urban plays the titular character this time around, and while he is perfect for the role, no one can say "Law" like Sly Stallone.
Anyway, here is the wonderful trailer:
