Dredd 3D “Legendary” Trailer

Dredd 3D “Legendary” Trailer!Dredd 3D - September 21st, 2012

UPDATE: The trailer is back up!

For those of you who have endured the painful Sly Stallone version of Judge Dredd, the time has finally come to purge those memories.

Written by 28 Days Later‘s Alex Garland and directed by Pete Travis, Dredd 3D stars Karl Urban (Star Trek) and Olivia Thirlby (Juno). Rest assured that Karl Urban never takes off his helmet in the film – not once. And although the big shoulder eagles are missing from their uniforms, I’m confident that the Judges in this film will be just like their counterparts from the printed pages of 2000AD.

Press release

IDW Publishing has partnered with 2000 AD to launch a line of Judge Dredd comics starting later this year.

Details and creative teams will be announced at a later date, but the partnership includes the creation of all-new Judge Dredd comics as well as deluxe reprints of classic Dredd material.

“Judge Dredd turns 35 this year, and it’s great to help him celebrate his birthday like this,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief. “It was great to meet up with the 2000 AD team at the recent London Super Con and cement the partnership on this one. My interest in Judge Dredd far predates my tenure at IDW, so it’s a real drokkin’ pleasure for us to now be the first American publisher in 18 years to create new tales of Dredd.”

The Joker

Brian Bolland has a distinctive style that is easily recognizable. His clean, detailed linework along with his attention to page composition has made him a highly sought after cover artist.

Brian Bolland (photo by Luigi Novi)Though most American comic book fans will recognize his beautifully detailed cover to Batman: The Killing Joke by Alan Moore and illustrated by Bolland himself, he was already well versed in doing covers and interiors in the UK and also for DC Comics in the US. He was clearly one of the definitive Judge Dredd artists in 2000 A.D. and illustrated DC’s first 12 issue maxi series, Camelot 3000.

Bolland had several very lengthy runs as the cover artist on a few DC Comics titles including Animal Man, Wonder Woman, The Invisibles, Batman: Gotham Nights, and Jack of Fables. He drew so many consecutive covers of Animal Man, the first 56 issues to be precise, that regardless of who actually drew the interiors, when you would think of Animal Man, Bolland’s artwork would instantly spring to mind.
