Director's Cut: Patrick's top 10 anticipated movies for 2012

30 December 2011 3:57 PM, PST | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

Looking forward to the next year of movies has been a tradition on Coming Attractions. After all, the whole reason why CA got started in the first place was to talk about movies that were in development, at a golden time when each film had awesome potential. As we watch the days grow shorter between their release dates, we love to imagine how great watching these movies will be. Whether the movies actually live up to the mental hype we give them is something else entirely.

But now’s not the time for being pessimistic. The final hours of 2011 are upon us and it’s with great hope that we look forward to what Hollywood will offer us in 2012. And there are some movies that I’m looking forward to seeing more than others.

Counting down, my top 10 most anticipated movies of 2012 are:

The top 25 must-see movies of 2012

8 December 2011 2:25 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Next year’s full to bursting with exciting movies, so to help out a little, here’s our pick of 25 must-see movies out in 2012…

As 2011 draws to a close, one eye is inevitably on the treats that are lying ahead for 2012. With that in mind, we've got our line-up of, as things stands, the 25 films that are brightest on our radar.

Now, a couple of disclaimers.

There are films that haven't made the cut here simply because we don't know a fat lot about them yet, or at least not enough to get us fired up. Jack The Giant Killer, Rise Of The Guardians, Red Tails, Chronicle and Dark Shadows all fit into that category.

Plus there are the films that we suspect will turn out strongly, but what we've seen of them so far hasn't blown us away (Brave, Skyfall). Then there are the potential hidden gems (ParaNorman) we'll »

Nevermind: Dredd Director Dismissal Refuted

12 October 2011 7:15 AM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Mere days ago, we reported that the upcoming sci-fi Judge Dredd reboot Dredd had lost its director, even though it had already finished shooting in March and had moved on to editing. Turns out, that's not the case at all.

"Creative disagreements" were cited as the cause for director Pete Travis' (Endgame, Vantage Point) dismissal in the original La Times article. The report also claimed that screenwriter Alex Garland (28 Days Later) had taken over in the editing room and could seek out a co-director credit. In a joint statement now printed in the original La Times report, Garland and Travis refuted any reports about Travis being fired.

Comic Book Bites: Judge Dredd, Nightfall and I, Frankenstein

12 October 2011 6:03 AM, PDT | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

While Dredd's mission is to act as judge, jury and executioner in a dystopian future where there is no appeal and every sentence is death, the producers of the new film about the comic book lawman may have already acquitted its director.

An earlier report by the La Times stated the movie's director, Pete Travis, had been removed from postproduction following disagreements with film executives. With the film - starring Karl Urban - now in the editing phase, Dredd writer-producer Alex Garland (28 Days Later) was said to be taking over the splicing duties, and in turn seeking a co-director credit.

Despite the story coming from three supposedly connected sources, original speculations look to be inaccurate according to both Travis and Garland in a joint statement.

"During all stages of the filmmaking, Dredd has been a collaboration between a number of dedicated creative parties", they said. "From the outset we »

Director Pete Travis & Writer Alex Garland Release 'Dredd' Statement

11 October 2011 10:34 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Just last week, there was word that some drama was happening on the post-production side of Dredd, the new adaptation of the Judge Dredd comic book series. Apparently director Pete Travis (Vantage Point) had been locked out of the editing room due to some significant creative differences with producers and executives, so instead the film's writer Alex Garland was taking over with an eye towards possibly seeking a co-director credit for all the work he's been putting into shaping the film. Well, now both Travis and Garland have released a statement to address the report of trouble on the movie, and you can read it below. The La Times' 24 Frames, who first reported on the story, has the statement from the filmmakers saying: "During all stages of the filmmaking, Dredd has been a collaboration between a number of dedicated creative parties.

Dredd: Travis and Garland Address Rumors of Post Production Troubles

11 October 2011 10:30 AM, PDT | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Yesterday, we brought you a rumor about Pete Travis (Vantage Point), the director of the forthcoming Judge Dredd reboot, reportedly being forced out of post-production due to “creative disagreements with producers and executives in charge of the film“, and the project being subsequently handed over to writer/producer Alex Garland (28 Days Later).

Due to the propagation of that rumor, director Pete Travis and writer/producer Alex Garland have released a joint statement through the LATimes.

The statement reads:

“During all stages of the filmmaking, ‘Dredd’ has been a collaboration between a number of dedicated creative parties.  From the outset we decided on an unorthodox collaboration to make the film.  This situation has been misinterpreted.  To set the record straight, Pete was not fired and remains a central part of the collaboration, and Alex is not seeking a co-director credit.  We are all extremely proud of the film we have made, »

Writer Alex Garland & Director Pete Travis Say Everything Is Fine With 'Dredd'

11 October 2011 7:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Just a few days ago, the forthcoming reboot/new vision on "Dredd" became the subject of some ugly advance word. Reports surfaced that director Pete Travis was effectively being locked out of the editing bay, that reshoots were possibly in the works and most surprising of all, that writer Alex Garland ("Sunshine," "28 Days Later") was leading the charge behind the closed doors to get the film put together and was even going to see a co-director credit for his effort. The news was dispiriting for a film that promised fanboys an R-rated gritty take on the hero, but in a… »

Uh-oh, This News Fills Me With Dredd…

11 October 2011 6:12 AM, PDT | CinemaSpy | See recent CinemaSpy news »

Karl Urban as Judge Dredd

Although production has wrapped on the upcoming movie based on Mega-City One’s most notorious scowling lawman, Judge Dredd, the L.A. Times is reporting that the upcoming flick is experiencing some post-production woes. It seems that the producers and director Pete Travis are having problems seeing eye to eye on the footage and the film’s writer/producer, Alex Garland (28 Weeks Later), has taken over the editing duties. So extensive are the changes and possibly necessary reshoots that Garland may seek to obtain co-directing credit on Dredd.

However, a later statement issued by Travis and Garland disputes these claims. They insist that the new arrangement has always been part of the plan and that the two continue to work together on the film. Whether or not this is true, or publicity whitewashing, remains to be seen, but many agree it is an unusual tactic »

Has director Pete Travis been fired from the Dredd project? Is Alex Garland seeking a co-director credit? This official statement aims to put the record straight…

At the end of last week, some worrying news emerged for those of us eagerly anticipating the second attempt to bring Judge Dredd to the big screen.

The new Dredd movie, starring Karl Urban as Mega City One’s legendary law enforcer, was shot earlier in the year, and is now in post-production. However, the story, which appeared at the Los Angeles Times, suggested that director Pete Travis had been dismissed from the project, and that writer and co-producer Alex Garland was now in charge of the editing room.

All was not sounding good.

Well, there’s been a fresh update, in that Garland and Travis have released a joint statement, aiming to put the record straight. We should say from the outset that »

'Dredd' Drama May Have Been Overblown

10 October 2011 7:01 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Last week ended with a dramatic tale of the happenings on the post-production work on 'Dredd.' It was said that there were disagreements between the director of the film, Pete Travis and producers over the footage shot; also that screenwriter Alex Garland has been doing so much of the post-production work that it was possible that he demand co-director status on the film. Both Travis and Garland released an official statement today that quelled the negative assumptions. The statement reads:  "During all stages of the filmmaking, 'Dredd' has been a collaboration between a number of dedicated creative parties. From the outset we decided on an unorthodox collaboration to make the film. This situation has been misinterpreted.
