Trivia: Karl Urban did all of his own motorcycle stunts.

Trivia: Director Pete Travis had a hard time on the set of Dredd - Karl Urban would not take his direction, only that of the film's writer Alex Garland. During editing, Travis was blocked out of the process due to conflicts between the producers and the executives, with Garland taking over. Garland briefly attempted to gain a co-director credit due to overseeing the editing, but was blocked by the Director's Guild of Great Britain, because he had not overseen filming or even directed before. Travis and Garland then reached an agreement where Garland would only get writing and producing credits. Several crew members, including Karl Urban, still consider Garland the primary director. Urban said in an interview "what a lot of people don’t realize is that Alex Garland actually directed that movie...I just hope when people think of Alex Garland’s filmography that Dredd is the first film that he made before Ex Machina."

Trivia: Throughout the entire film, Dredd only refers to Anderson by name three times: Once during the drug bust before they arrest Kay, again after she reads Kay's mind, and finally, right before Dredd tells Anderson her assessment is over. Every other time, he calls her "Rookie."

Trivia: Dredd's count outside the medical center is unusually perfect for time in a movie: there are exactly twenty seconds between his warning and the first shot.


Continuity mistake: The homeless beggar at the entrance of Peach Trees gets splattered by the blast doors closing, creating a pool of blood on the ground. When they open again at the end of the film there is no blood or body.
