There are moments on the Internet where you throw out a wish and someone, somewhere, hears that wish and makes it come true. As I write this I am having one of those wonderful moments. Like a lot of you, I’m totally on board for a Karl Urban Dredd sequel. The problem being that even with all the dedicated fans efforts that made A Day to Dredd movement a success the last two years, the Dredd sequel is still sitting on a shelf in Hollywood limbo. Dredd executive producer Adi Shankar wants that sequel just as bad as the rest of us and while he’s been unable to get the sequel into production, he does want to thank all the fans for their support by creating a free Dredd web-mini-series that focuses on what this Dredd fan thinks are the coolest Dredd villains ever, the Dark Judges.

The latest Deadpool movie announcement must have reinvigorated the fans of Dredd who want another Dredd Movie.

For those of you younger readers this might not seem like much of a big deal. It’s just another blooper reel, there are hundreds on the Internet at a click of a mouse button.

No one even had it on VHS back then unless you bought it off the bootleg video table. You could always find it in a darkened corner of your local comic book convention. You knew the table because every VHS tape had a photocopied cover. Now you just click and enjoy. (more…)
