      @felipe-11 possibly... they may just be really late in getting it done... Or the budget wasn't there to get too many marketing out there before the film.. who knows... I just want to see this do well... I am trying to keep my hopes up for it

        I enjoy watching the 1995 Judge Dredd movie, and I'm giving this incarnation a chance, because it looks really good for a modern day future film.

          @mcleve02 I'm scared this might flop too :(

          The trailer looks terrific, and I really want sci-fi films to succeed, but we're a month away from this and I haven't seen a single trailer playing in my theaters, a single poster hung up, or a single TV ad. Although, it's a british-produced film so I'm guessing the marketing must be heavier there.

              Agreed, @skywise. Garland has made some excellent Danny Boyle films, as well as Never Let Me Go. Btw, where was the information you found, regarding this film being liked at Comic-Con?

                  @skywise@mcleve02 Hopefully it can perform better than Recall

                    I want this movie to be good! I'm hoping Karl Urban will be a decent fit (he's no Stallone) but he's got the gritty look and the bad ass vibe.

                                      @skywise ahhh Diane Lane... I think we have had a conversation about her at least once... but anyways... yeah it really should be... anything but rated R is just childish for this character...

                                        @mcleve02 For what it is the original is ok. I give massive points for having Diane Lane feature in it. Any movie with her is a movie I am going to see. But Rob Schneider was too cheesy. I know that is what they were going for but Dredd is and should be an R rated film. That is one thing I am very interested to see here.

                                          @skywise I thin Stallone definitely fits the part the best, but the first Dredd was pretty blah... Rob Schneider definitely did not help that...
