New Dredd Photos Debut

Lots of new images from the upcoming Dredd have debuted in the latest issue of Empire. Scans are now online (Thanks to SuperHeroHype forum members "Project862006" and "Rogue Trooper") and you can check them out below.

Adapting the "Judge Dredd" comics that originally appeared in "2000 A.D.", the film takes place in Mega City One, the lone oasis of quasi-civilization on Cursed Earth. Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) is the most feared of elite Street Judges, with the power to enforce the law, sentence offenders and execute them on the spot, if necessary.

The below images also provide the first glimpse at the costumes for Judge Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), the villainous Ma-Ma (Lena Headey) and more.

Also confirmed in the magazine is the fact that Dredd will keep his iconic helmet on throughout the film. Having the character appear so often without said helmet was the subject of much fan-criticism in the 1995 feature adaptation, which starred Sylvester Stallone in the lead.
