New Dredd Action Image
The cover of The Hollywood Reporters‘ movie guide for the Cannes film festival features a great new image of Dredd in action from director Pete Travis’s new movie. The film is due to open in the UK on 7 September. [via Comic Book Movie]
Meanwhile, IM Global’s Stuart Ford (the company that financed Dredd along with Reliance Big Entertainment) tells Deadline that the Cannes screening of the film went down well: “The reaction was great. It was as packed as any screening I’ve seen in Cannes. There were people sitting on the floor in the front and the back of the room.”
He alls it, “an edgy, cool film with a rocking soundtrack… [it] appears very fresh and distinctive. It’s Dirty Harry meets District 9.”
He adds that even though the air-conditioning broke down, no one walked out. Wonder if we’ll see that quote on the poster?
