2000 Ad will release its comic book sequel to Dredd in a Us format one-shot.
The Dredd: Underbelly comic is the Rebellion-owned UK anthology's first direct release of its kind.
"Brought to you by Seattle-based writer Arthur Wyatt and fan favourite artist Henry Flint, Dredd: Underbelly picks up a year after the movie with Judge Dredd and Judge Anderson investigating a gruesome mass grave - could this be linked to a new drug that has flooded into the blocks of Mega-City One after the fall of the Ma-Ma clan?" said 2000 Ad.
A poor Us performance has made a movie sequel seem unlikely, although a strong DVD/Blu-ray release and fan petitions could conceivably change that.
Several fan-made Dredd sequels have been released.
The Dredd: Underbelly one-shot will be released in January.
It’s got the Sundance folk/system stacked in its corner. The Institute selected Life Partners for the January Screenwriters Lab (’12), gave it’s producer a nudge and even a public read of the screenplay. Susanna Fogel’s directorial debut shot in 2013 with the femme-centric ensemble of Leighton Meester, Gillian Jacobs, Greer Grammer, Gabourey Sidibe and Julie White. Adam Brody is in there too. Oh…and Fogel and her/creative writing partner Joni Lefkowitz have got It Is What It Is in the pipeline with Evan Rachel Wood, Olivia Thirlby and Sigourney Weaver attached. Check out the exclusive first look below – Photo credit by Erik Anders Lang.
Written by Susanna Fogel and Joni Lefkowitz, this is about a codependent friendship between two single girls approaching 30 — type-a Paige (Gillian Jacobs) and lesbian slacker Sasha (Leighton Meester)— who must struggle to redefine their friendship and its boundaries when Paige meets the (romantic »

Kids. Such as Sex, Lies, and Videotape or Reservoir Dogs before it, and such as Winter’s Bone, Blue Valentine and Fruitvale Station after it, Larry Clark & Harmony Korine’s seminal film is forever connected in “spirit” to the lieu where it received its secret midnight premiere screening in 1995. The Sundance Film Festival might be known as the birthplace of U.S indie filmmaking innovation, avant-gardism, a larger definition of the low budgeted film response to Hollywood in not only narrative but in the non-fiction form, but it is a festival made strong by its renewal and familiarity. That close acquaintanceness exists in Kids‘ starlets Rosario Dawson and Chloë Sevigny filmography/career path trajectory and connection to Park City (both have several indie films slated for ’14 – of which I’ve included in our predictions list) and it is that “familiarity” that is visibly noticeable in how I map out my annual predictions list. »

For most audiences around the world, Berenice Marlohe came to their attention thanks to her starmaking turn in "Skyfall" as the smokey seductress Severine. She hasn't been seen on the big screen since, mostly because she's been too busy working. She booked a part in Terrence Malick's forthcoming Austin music scene-set drama, but as those movies goes, who knows if she'll remain in the film. But more crucially, the actress is ready to show a softer side, starring opposite Anton Yelchin in the romance "5 To 7." The feature debut from "Mad Men" co-producer and writer Victor Levin, and co-starring Glenn Close, Frank Langella, Lambert Wilson and Olivia Thirlby, the film follows Brian (Yelchin), an aspiring novelist who has an extramarital cinq-a-sept affair with the beautiful wife of a French diplomat, Arielle (Marlohe). Cultures, world views, personal ethics and dietary preferences clash as their love deepens. And you can see the chemistry forming between the. »

What I said last time about the summer being a fairly quiet time for the streaming world, please disregard. Rather than wait for the autumn when people are more inclined to slump on a sofa in front of the tube, Netflix, Lovefilm and a new contender have decided that everyone just loves good movies and TV and so have flooded the marketplace with good content in a battle to outdo one another. The winner again is you the consumer and the hardest part may be to actually choose just one of these outlets to subscribe to.
That new contender I talked about is Sky, who has thrown their hat into the ring with Now TV, which is essentially an on demand version of their Sky Movie channels available over the internet. If you have seen the Now TV website and thought they didn’t actually have much content then think again. »

And though it died a most undeserving death at the box office, it found a massive audience on home video, numbers that stars Karl Urban and writer Alex Garland are using as leverage to get a worthy sequel made.
Now rights holder 2000 Ad has launched an official petition and online campaign which they plan on bringing to Lionsgate to show the fan demand for a sequel. Click here to sign the petition, and visit the Facebook page to help spread the word!

Maybe Dredd was never going to be successful. It was based on a comic book beloved by a certain slice of the global population (British people) and mostly unknown to everyone else. I say “mostly” because if you say the words “Judge Dredd” in polite company, everyone thinks of the terrible 1995 Sylvester Stallone movie, a film that has somehow become the go-to example of Everything Stallone Did Wrong After Cliffhanger. The new Dredd had a curious pedigree: Written by Alex Garland, who has worked on some great films; directed by Pete Travis, who hasn’t. At one point, rumors circulated »

While attending Comic-Con 2013 last week, Dredd 3D star Karl Urban revealed that a sequel is still possible, urging fans to let their voices be heard. Dredd comic book publisher 2000Ad has stepped forward to create an online petition for the fans to sign, along with a Facebook page dedicated to the potential follow-up.
Although it was critically praised, Dredd 3D flopped, taking in just $13.4 million at the domestic box office and just over $36 million worldwide. Karl Urban starred as the title character, one of the many judges who lay down the law in the massive Mega City One, alongside his rookie partner Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby).
Karl Urban said last week that he has met with Dredd 3D writer-producer Alex Garland to discuss ideas for a potential follow-up. The actor also revealed during that interview that Blu-ray and DVD sales have been very high. Stay tuned to see if this »
Around these parts we have a lot of love for Pete Travis’ Dredd (review). The movie, though not as good as The Raid, which it is always compared to, kicked a copious amount of ass; and its star, Karl Urban, played The Perfect Judge Dredd.
Though the flick didn't exactly light up the box office, it exploded on Blu-ray and DVD; and during the San Diego Comic-Con Airlock Alpha caught up with Urban, who briefly discussed sequel potential. “It’s certainly my hope that we get to make more,” he tells the site. “Clearly it has found an audience. The home video sales for Dredd 3D just went through the roof. I think it sold 650,000 units in the first week.”

Karl Urban was in San Diego yesterday to promote his new Fox series Almost Human, where he also revealed that a sequel to Dredd 3D may happen. The actor said that he has met with Dredd 3D writer-producer Alex Garland about a potential follow-up that he hopes will happen.
"It's certainly my hope that we get to make more. Clearly it has found an audience. The home video sales for Dredd 3D just went through the roof. I think it sold 650,000 units in the first week."
Despite receiving rave reviews from critics, Dredd 3D only took in $13 million at the domestic box office and $36 million worldwide, from a $45 million budget. However, the actor compared his action-thriller to another sci-fi classic which initially underperformed at the box office, Blade Runner, while urging fans of the movie to get involved.
"It's amazing how these things occurred. Not to compare it directly to Blade Runner, »
