Are you ready, rookies?

Dredd sequel campaign launches new day of action

15 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Today is the latest Day Of Dredd, in the campaign for a Dredd 2 movie...

The campaign to get a sequel moving to 2012's impressive Dredd, starring Karl Urban, is having its second day of action today.

Entitled Day Of Dredd 2014, this is the day when fans of the original film are being asked to buy another copy of the movie for their friends, to stream the movie, or just to spread the word about the demand for Dredd 2. Last year, the day of action led to Dredd storming up the Amazon sales charts, to continue to get the message across that lots and lots of people would watch a sequel in a shot.

Today's the day, then. Please: do anything you can to give Day Of Dredd your support. The excellent Make A Dredd Sequel campaign can be found on Facebook here. 

Hopefully, by the time Day Of Dredd 2015 comes around, »

Watch: James Marsden in New Trailer for Delayed Thriller 'The Loft'

29 September 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

It's been two years since we saw the first trailer for the thriller The Loft, a remake of a 2008 Belgian film of the same name that assembles and interesting cast that includes Karl Urban, James Marsden, Wentworth Miller, Eric Stonestreet and Matthias Schoenaerts. But the film has been delayed for awhile now, and it sounds like that's because it's not very good. The film was shot in 2011, picked up by Warner Bros. genre arm Dark Castle in 2012, but never hit theaters, was tossed to Universal and expected to hit theaters this year. The latest we've heard is the long-delayed film will arrive early next year in January, and a new international trailer has just surfaced showing off more of the saucy thriller on the way. Watch? Here's the new international trailer for Erik Van Looy's The Loft from YouTube (via The Playlist): In The Loft, five friends who »

The Loft is a remake of a 2008 Belgian film in which fFive friends who share a loft for their extramarital affairs begin to question one another after the body of an unknown woman is found in the property. The film was originally set to hit theaters in August, but Universal yanked it from the calendar back in June.

Watch: New Trailer For Long Delayed Thriller 'The Loft' With Matthias Schoenaerts, Karl Urban, James Marsden & More

29 September 2014 5:12 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

At this point, the question is not whether "The Loft" is bad. The question is now just how bad the movie is. Shot in the summer of 2011, the film was originally snapped up by Warner Bros. shingle Dark Castle in 2012. It was given a tentative 2013 release but that didn't materialize, and then the movie was punted over to Universal, who at one point planned to bring it to theaters on August 29th this year. That didn't happen either, with the studio pushing it back in June. But it seems like something's happening with a release, as a new international trailer for "The Loft" is here. Starring Karl Urban, James Marsden, Eric Stonestreet, Wentworth Miller, Matthias Schoenaerts, Isabel Lucas, Rhona Mitra, and Elaine Cassidy, the thriller is a remake of a 2008 Belgian film about a bunch of bros who rent a loft for their extramarital affairs. But their sweet deal goes »

William Shatner confirms he has been approached about Star Trek 3

28 September 2014 5:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A few days ago we heard a rumour suggesting that William Shatner is wanted for a cameo as James T. Kirk in the upcoming third instalment of Paramount’s rebooted Star Trek franchise, and while Shatner subsequently took to Twitter to deny the speculation, he has now admitted that he has been approached by producer J.J. Abrams with a view to returning in his signature role in what will be the 50th anniversary of the sci-fi series. Speaking at Mashville Wizard World Comic-Con yesterday, Shatner admitted that he’d had a phonecall from Abrams to sound out his interest in a cameo in Star Trek 3:

“So [Abrams] calls and says ‘I’m calling, Bill, because the director of the Star Trek movie, the next one, has had an idea where you might be involved in it. So I am calling to see if you would be interested.’ I said ‘Oh, »

Karl Urban moots possibility of Dredd prequel

Karl Urban has been discussing the possibility of a follow-up to Dredd, and has revealed that any such film would most likely be a prequel. The first film may have been a commercial flop, but there are a hardcore of fans who genuinely revere it, and sure enough, Urban was asked about a possible reprise during an appearance at the Chicago Comic-Con. “Why yes, there is a definite possibility,” said Urban, “but it is more likely that we will do the origin story with Dredd trekking through the Cursed Earth to find the first Chief Judge...

Karl Urban Says If Another ‘Judge Dredd’ Happens It Would Be A Prequel

9 September 2014 10:35 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Since the character's debut in 1977, Judge Dredd has become one of the most popular comic book characters in the UK. Unfortunately, U.S. fans never took quite as adamantly to the Street Judge from Mega-City One. Whether the totalitarian state depicted in the comics alienated American readers, or if the shadow of American characters like Superman and Batman obscured the character, Dredd failed to make a big splash with mainstream U.S. consumers. Although Sylvester Stallone’s “Judge Dredd” opened at number five at the box office in 1995, the film underperformed “Batman Forever” (then in week three) by over $3 million. Still, the “Dredd” franchise returned to the big screen in 2012, this time with Karl Urban playing the titular enforcer. And the film did even worse. Opening at sixth for its opening weekend, “Dredd” was a spectacular flop. The barely scraped together $35.5 million worldwide (in 3D no less!) over its six »

Dredd 2 Probably Won't Be A Direct Sequel

9 September 2014 1:40 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

If there was a song title that succinctly summed up the collective Dredd fans. point-of-view on a possible sequel, it would be Journey.s "Don.t Stop Believing." Because dammit, we want to see this thing get made! Does it matter what storyline the filmmakers end up going with? Not really, as long as an actual storyline exists. And according to the sneering Judge himself, Karl Urban, there.s a very specific section of Judge Dredd.s history that may make its way to the big screen, assuming DNA Films & Co. quits taking Slo-mo and starts putting some pieces together. Appearing at the Chicago Comic-Con recently, Urban was asked by ShallowGraves if any of the dark judges would possibly be making their way into Dredd 2. Instead of giving the usual "Sign the petition and hoping this thing gets made," response, Urban actually drops an incredibly insightful nugget about »

Karl Urban on possible Dredd 2 plotline

8 September 2014 10:50 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mr Karl Urban chats about a possible direction for the Dredd sequel. If it ever gets made...

Dredd 2 remains, thankfully, the sequel that won't go away. In spite of the limited box office returns of the first Dredd, it's gone on to become a decent hit on DVD and Blu-ray, and there's continued fan clamour for a follow-up.

Leading the charge always seems to be the man who brought Judge Dredd successfully to the big screen, Mr Karl Urban. And over the weekend, he was at Chicago Comic-Con.

When Shallow Graves met the actor, it asked him directly whether it was possible that we might see the Dark Judges pop up in Dredd 2, should it press ahead. And to quote the site, 'he stopped what he was doing, and it was evident that I struck the geek mark'. With a smile on his face, Urban said  "why yes, there is a definite possibility. »

Will the next ‘Dredd’ film be a prequel?

(Cbr) "Dredd" has gone a long way to earn a huge and deserved fan following since its 2012 release. Unfortunately, director Pete Travis’ adaptation wasn’t a box-office hit. And yet, there’s still hope for a follow-up Appearing at Wizard World Chicago Con, star Karl Urban dropped a few more potential details. Luckily MovieWeb was there to listen in. “Why yes, there is a definite possibility,” Urban said. “But, it is more likely that we will do the ‘Origins’ story with Dredd trekking through the cursed earth to find the first Chief Judge Fargo.” Fargo was the first Judge, a celebrated figure of law and order who is Judge Dredd’s clone father. The character’s early days were fleshed out in a serialized "2000 Ad" story called “Origins” by Judge Dredd creators John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra. Published between 2006 and 2007, the story followed Dredd as he traveled outside of Mega-City »

Karl Urban Says Dredd Sequel Will Actually Be a Prequel

8 September 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I really enjoyed Karl Urban's Dredd, and like all of the other fans, I want to see a sequel happen. Earlier this year Urban said that there have been conversations with screenwriter Alex Garland and Lionsgate about bringing another Dredd movie to the big screen.

While attending Chicago Comic-Con the actor was asked about the possibility of Dredd 2 and he revealed that if it happens it will most likely be a prequel instead of a sequel. Here's what he had to say as reported by Movie Web:

"Why yes, there is a definite possibility. But, it is more likely that we will do the origins story with Dredd trekking through the cursed earth to find the first Chief Judge Fargo."

I think that would make for an awesome movie. The origins story for Dredd was created by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra, and the comic run that told the »

Could Karl Urban Return To The Cursed Earth For A Dredd Prequel?

8 September 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Reboots and remakes are a dime a dozen in contemporary Hollywood, with seemingly every studio harkening back to yesteryear to bring back a host of beloved cinematic IPs for better or worse. However, few of these nostalgic attempts at reinvigorating a franchise manage to satisfy the core fan base let alone recoup their production cost. And one such reboot to fall foul to the latter was 2012’s beloved and crucially under-appreciated Dredd.

Despite being held up by fans as an instant classic, Pete Travis’ visualization of Mega City One’s judge, jury and executioner was deemed a commercial dud, thereby extinguishing any potential hope of a sequel. Nevertheless, the film’s ardent supporters have been rallying for the story to continue ever since.

And, during the recent Chicago Comic-Con, Karl Urban himself stated that if a Dredd sequel were to make it to the big screen, it would in all likelihood be an origin story. »

Karl Urban Talks ‘Dredd 2′ Origin Story

8 September 2014 8:20 AM, PDT | | See recent Screen Rant news »

Dredd is the epitome of a modern cult hit. The reboot of the 2000 A.D. comic property (which was already a 1995 film starring Sylvester Stallone) lost money at that the box office ($35 million on a $50 million budget), but has since gained notoriety thanks to strong word-of-mouth and home video viewing. While not many people saw it, those that did see it generally had high praise for h0w director Pete Travis and star Karl Urban course-corrected the mistakes of the Stallone film, and really honored the character and his source material.

Talk of Dredd 2 has been consistent since the first film hit the home video market; but for every enthusiastic (albeit late-coming) word of praise, ...
