No aliens? no droids? c'mon this is Dredd. There must at least be some mutants in it?

It depends on how faithful they're being to the Dreddverse legal system.



If they aren't what would be the point?

They're saving that for the sequel ;-)

Anderson is a mutant in the movie.

This film isn't about those things. They aren't making that type of Dredd. It's exclusively about the job. The Cursed Earth is mentioned but not delved into. Anderson is a mutant if you like.

As long as it feels like Dredd, I don't really care if we're looking at a film that could be set in the 2100s, or 2030, or, like Children of Men, a brutal near future. It's an adaptation of Dredd. On those shots, MC-1 looks horrible—an absolute shit-hole. There's a real 'on the brink' vibe coming off the snippets we've seen, which I'm really intrigued to see as a film. That certainly beats the ’90s gloss of the last one.

This has all ready been posted from the original FX showreel. You're linking to a Scojo version there.

Quite so. We don't need a film about mutants and aliens. Most Dredd stories aren't about either. A Judge and a few perps is a better way to go.

No Dark Judges required either.

Sequels can give us those things if this film brings in enough.
