We were just as surprised as you that our writer on the scene at Comic-Con didn’t completely hate the upcoming revamp of comic book hero Judge Dredd. After a troubled production history and a trailer that reminded us a little too much of this year’s excellent action extravaganza “The Raid: Redemption” (granted, “Dredd” began production long before “The Raid”), we were all but ready to write “Dredd” off as a misfire akin to Sylvester Stallone’s 1995 interpretation of the same anti-hero.

Whatever happened to discreetly getting a hotel room? Or putting a pool table, a big screen TV and a jukebox in your basement, calling it a mancave and inviting your friends over? For the dudes in "Loft," an American remake of a 2008 Belgian film, cheating on their wives requires a serious commitment (unlike their marriages, we suppose), which includes pooling their resources into what one character accurately calls a "fuckpad."

It was a roll of the dice to be sure, but it mostly turned out well for Lionsgate, who kicked off Comic-Con last week by screening "Dredd" for enthusiastic geeks. And while we thought the film was mostly empty spectacle, many other folks disagreed, with much of the initial wariness of the film lifting as a result of the screening (though perhaps replaced after that ridiculous slow motion clip landed online).

A brief litle update on various bits and bobs from San Diego over the weekend so here we go...The last time we heard anything about the future of Marvel's "The Punisher" was last fall when Fox committed to a TV pilot that would bring the character to the small screen...and that's about it since then. But Thomas Jane, who played the character in the modestly received 2004 movie, has gone ahead and made his own short film without Marvel approval.

The future America is an irradiated waste land. On its East Coast, running from Boston to Washington DC, lies Mega City One -- a vast, violent metropolis where criminals rule the chaotic streets. The only force of order lies with the urban cops called "Judges" who possess the combined powers of judge, jury and instant executioner. Known and feared throughout the city, Dredd is the ultimate Judge, challenged with ridding the city of its latest scourge -- a dangerous drug epidemic that has users of "Slo-Mo" experiencing reality at a fraction of its normal speed.

Remakes and reboots always seem to demand comparisons to their predecessors, but “Dredd” evokes a slightly different relationship: What Zack Snyder’s “Dawn of the Dead” is to George Romero’s original, Pete Travis’ film is to, no, not Danny Cannon’s 1995 film “Judge Dredd,” but Paul Verhoeven’s “Robocop.” In both cases, gifted visual stylists took fertile, socially-conscious subject matter, pared out the cultural commentary, and left behind an engaging, if empty, cinematic experience.

Judgement is indeed coming for "Dredd" and that judgement may not be all good. The upcoming dystopian thriller has not been handled well from minute one outside of hiring Alex Garland ("28 Days Later," "Sunshine") to pen the screenplay and even that may not have helped. Some ask why anyone bothered to make a remake of the Sylvester Stallone’s movie "Judge Dredd," and producers countered that they were going back to the source material and making things -- wait for it -- darker, more violent and more humorous like the comic book.

In the future, drugs are still a problem, everything looks like "Blade Runner," and dudes in helmets with consta-growl voices are the only measure of justice. Welcome to the world of "Dredd," the remake of the "The Raid" you didn't know you wanted.

So...a trailer soon? With the film said to be hitting theaters in three months, there was been dead silence around the somewhat-troubled comic reboot "Dredd." No trailers and only a smattering of images, a few more which have now landed online.
