Yeah, I’m disappointed by this teaser for Karl Urban‘s Dredd. I’m assuming this is the American poster and not the U.K. one, because it reminds me of so many other boring, unimaginative U.S. posters. Remind you of any very recent comic-book film in particular?
It could have been worse, though: Judge Dredd could have had his back to the observer and been looking over his shoulder (shudder)! Or, even worse, the poster could have depicted the film’s main characters as disembodied blue or green floating heads with something boring underneath. I abhor that cliche more than any other.
Dredd opens Sept. 21.
