First Dredd Movie Footage to Be Show Exclusively at Kapow! Comic Con


Damn you Millar! Now I REALLY want to go to Kapow! Comic Con. It seems that during the con, they will be showing the very first footage from Dredd, the upcoming movie based on the Judge Dredd strip from 2000 AD. Anyone who reads this site know that I eat, sleep, and breathe 2000 AD, so I’m pretty miffed that I won’t be able to be there for this. *Pssst - someone please sneak in a video camera *

From the press release:
