Movie Images & Posters: ‘Dredd’, ‘Expendables 2′ and ‘Riddick’

2 years ago by  

All three titles featured in our latest image and poster roundup – The Expendables 2, Dredd and Riddick – are franchise installments with something to prove. The Expendables sequel aims to outperform its predecessor in every way possible, while the Judge Dredd reboot is meant to be a truer-to-form adaptation of the original British sci-fi comic book. Riddick, by comparison, looks to return the series to its leaner, meaner Pitch Black roots (after the bloated Chronicles of Riddick).

Check out the full gallery above for a new look at fan-faves Lena Headey and Karl Urban in Dredd, Scott Adkins from Expendables 2 and Vin Diesel as (shirtless) Riddick. Be sure to also read on for larger versions of said images and posters, along with some additional information about the characters on display therein.

The Expendables 2

Initial reports that Scott Adkins will show up in the second Expendables movie were greeted with much enthusiasm, yet the martial artist/actor has been largely unaccounted for in the film’s marketing to date (including, the action-heavy full-length trailer). That changes with the release of an Expendables 2 character poster – fashioned in the same design as those for “The Dirty Dozen” – with Adkins, who plays Hector, described as a “sadistic henchman [who] is quick with a blade and loyal to the cause… a menacing combo.”

Dredd

The 1995 Judge Dredd movie starring Sylvester Stallone is frequently cited as a guilty pleasure amongst cinephiles, but pretty much everyone agrees: it’s a far cry from the darkly satirical and violent source material, which premiered in the British sci-fi anthology 2000 AD during the (tumultuous) late 1970s. Judging by early imagery, Dredd will at least be a more dirty and grisly representation of Mega City One (the futuristic city where its namesake, as played by Karl Urban, presides).

Helping the cause is Lena Headey (300, The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Game of Thrones) as ex-prostitute-turned drug gang leader Madeline “Ma-Ma” Madrigal. Originally envisioned as a woman over the age of 70, Dredd screenwriter Alex Garland re-imagined the character when Headey came aboard – as, according to the actress, “an old great white shark who is just waiting for someone bigger and stronger to show up and kill her.”

Riddick

It’s safe to say: if Riddick (a.k.a. Riddick 3) fails at the box office, it won’t be due to lack of effort and enthusiasm from star Vin Diesel. The Fast and the Furious franchise leading man has been relentless in his efforts to get people excited for the titular renegade ex-convict’s return to the big screen – by unleashing a plethora of set photos and even getting buzz about sequels going, even though Riddick is still without an official release date. The latest Riddick pic from Diesel proves he hasn’t forgotten his “fan service” duties, either.

  1. vin looks like he is getting a little chunky in the belly. haha cant wait for a trailer

    • I agree. Vin doesn’t look as cut as he normally does in most movies. I’m not sure if its just a bad image or what, but thats the first thing that I though also.

    • Vin bulked up. Def bigger than usual and most likely on PEDs. Prolly got a hookup from Dwayne Johnson…lol.

    • I thought he looked a little soft too, but he still looks like he can kick some @$$.

      • not bad for 44 though

  2. i hope adkins has a bigger role then both steve austin and garry daniels from the 1st, he deserves more credit for his fighting and acting skills (yes he can act, just like michael jai white).

    as long as dredd has good special effects (a growing concern due to the alleged budget cuts and leaves from crew involved with production) and fleunt action, it should be decent (anything is better then stallones one imo).

    • Yes to everything….

    • Agreed on both counts.

  3. Adkins should have bigger roles now. He spent most of his career with side roles and he proved he can do much more if they give the chance in Undisputed series. Diesel is cool as always, i like Riddick movies i am sure new one will be good too.

  4. Great poster, finally Scott Adkins gets his Expendables 2 poster.

    Adkins is a amazing martial arts expert but yet he doesn’t get bigger roles.

    I mean Adkins could beat the crap out of Robert Patterison and Taylor Lauthner any day.

    I hope Adkins gets a fair amount of screentime and his fight scene with Statham turns out to be awesome.

    Also Riddick 3 looks okay and I hope Dredd turns out to be great.

    I watched the Stallone verison and I thought it was good because I didn’t knew how the film connect with the comics since I didn’t knew the Stallone movie was based on a comic book, I was young.

    Still Dredd could be the worst or the best reboot ever.

  5. i liked chronicles of ricddick! would have loved to see a continuation of that storyline…oh well! all the same, i’ll def be checking out part 3

  6. only one i might watch is Dredd never watched Riddick or Expandables.
    still waiting on the movie Robocop see how the going to handle that.

  7. I’m really excited for Dredd, despite most everyone who only knows Dredd from the Stallone film seemingly wanting it to fail. (Not here, but the general reaction I’ve seen on other boards over the past few months. Some refuse to even think about giving it a chance.)

    • As a long-time Dredd fan I’d dearly love this to be a decent reboot. I’ve no doubt Karl Urban will give it his best shot, but after reading Alex Garland’s screenplay (no matter how he’s tweaked it over the last year or so) I just don’t think he’s got the mix of iconography and absurdity right, and the budget restrictions can only underline the narrow view he seems to be taking of Dredd’s world. I’ll be in line come what may, but I sincerely hope I’m wrong on this one.

  8. I’ve heard it said that Dredd’s helmet would look better in action…

    Nope.

    Dang.
