New 'Dredd' Movie Stills Show Off Suits, Splatter, and No Smiles

Get a closer look at Judge Dredd on the set of the upcoming film adaptation.

Are you ready for some Dredd? So far we haven't seen a whole lot of information about the upcoming Judge Dredd film titled simply Dredd save for a very basic synopsis and some tidbits of information here and there; until now. Recently some images of actors Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby were taken and leaked online -- and they look pretty cool.

The images of the actors in full costume give us our first look at the costume design, which is a more modern, grittier version than what we saw in the original Judge Dredd film starring Sylvester Stallone back in 1995. With a budget of 45 million, the film is currently in its post-production stage with a release date set for September 21st, 2012. Dredd is being developed by British film companies DNA Films, IM Global and Reliance and will be distributed in the United States by Lionsgate.

The film will star Karl Urban as Judge Dredd in a violent, Dystopian future where law enforcement acts as "judge, jury and executioner." Dredd's main goal? To infiltrate and eradicate a gang that deals a "reality-altering" drug called SLO-MO. JUDGE DREDD is currently published by 2000AD.

Check out images from the set of the film below! Be warned that some of the images may be considered graphic.
