Dredd, as in the Judge, is coming to cinemas in September and only now is a trailer coming to the surface. You’d think that would be cause for concern but word is that people raved about the screening held at Cannes. When you keep in mind that that screening was reportedly in a boiling room lacking air con and that no-one left it kinda makes you wonder why they’ve been so late to start the promo work. I’d imagine it’s because this film is being done on the relative cheap. The world of Judge Dredd is a big and very complex one to pull off in film. What they’ve done here with a relatively small $30milliom budget is base their Mega City One as a near future design. So less extra work on actual locations and they can keep all the flashy stuff in the skylines. The trailer looks pretty dark and gritty evoking the mood more than the look of the comics. I think it’s looking a fair bit better than the Stallone film, which I actually kinda enjoy in a perverse way. Anyway, click the link for the trailer!

Cat picture is way relevant. So why am I posting trailers today? Because tomorrow night I’ll be out watching Prometheus, that’s why. I’ll do my best to get a review up right after I get home but considering that won’t be until 3AM there’s a chance I might just leave it until the next day seeing as I’m going to Sweden on June 2nd. So I figured I’d post a couple of trailers today. First up will be Tom Hooper’s Les Miserables, followed by Steve Carell and Keira Knightley starring Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World. After that something retro. Enjoy!
