Geeks will have an early chance to critique the first image from the forthcoming Pete Travis-directed comic adaptation "Dredd," starring Karl Urban. The unfortunately named Jock, a comic artist, has provided a scene from rehearsals that is now making the Internet rounds.

As far as we're concerned, it looks fine, as expected and really isn't much to judge a film by. It's rehearsals and obviously not indicative of what the final film will look like though it's a likely a good indication of what the costume will look like and again, nothing to complain about here.

We have some expectations of this one. While the 1995 version with Sylvester Stallone was akin to what Joel Shumacher did with the Batman series—corny, campy B-movie—this version comes with a much stronger pedigree; oft-Danny Boyle collaborator and screenwriter Alex Garland (”28 Days Later,” “Sunshine,” “The Beach”) penned the script and a particularly good supporting actress is onboard in Olivia Thirlby.

If you want to find out more about "Dredd" you can check out a script review we ran, which revealed that the screenplay was very dark and gritty with comparisons being drawn to “Die Hard” and “Blade Runner.” Evidently, the producers are going for a hard-R rating, the film will be in 3D and will hit theaters via Lionsgate most likely in 2012.
