STAR TREK BEYOND

A lot has been said, and written, about the behind-the-scenes turmoil in the development of Star Trek Beyond, but that drama was focused behind the camera. What about in front of the camera though? Was there ever a chance that one of the main cast members might have taken a powder on the third chapter in the rebooted Trek movie series? Possibly. In an interview released this week, the once and future Judge Dredd Karl Urban seemed to indicate that there were mitigating factors that might have prevented him from returning to the series, but director Justin Lin convinced him to come back to Bones.

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ is still nearly a year-and-a-half before it’s released and we already have been receiving great info for this third film in the Thor franchise. It’s been almost two weeks since the confirmation of several additions to the cast, including Cate Blanchett (Hela), Jeff Goldblum (Grandmaster), Karl Urban (Skurge), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie) and Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner/The Hulk confirmed to appear. That right there is a great indicator that this film will be more of a team-up film than a solo story. Now we are hearing that this movie has some great surprises lined up for fans that will further establish the Marvel Cinematic Universe. (more…)

Marvel has made a pretty heavy announcement today adding some big names to the cast of the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok.

So once upon a time, we started a joke that started the whole world clamoring for a Netflix Dredd series. It was April Fool’s, and we were young and salty, but who would have guess that years later  – YEARS! – that article still would have been quoted as a legit thing that was possibly in the works. So keeping all that in mind, there’s some news from the weekend that seems to indicate that the idea at the heart of that joke may become a reality. A real player, with the real Dredd, recently indicated to fans that there may be doings transpiring in regards to a Dredd series. (more…)

It’s no secret that Dredd didn’t do well at the box office. Domestically it tanked with only the International box office and eventual strong DVD sales recapturing the movie’s production costs. The results certainly didn’t help hopes for a sequel. Any other franchise fans would have given up at this point, but Dredd fans hung in there, starting petitions, websites, and a yearly “Put Dredd at the top of the Sales Chart” event in hopes of creating enough interest from Hollywood to get a sequel into production.

Everyone involved with Dredd wants a sequel, Karl Urban has been keeping the pot simmering with comments and video statements to fans, but even this hasn’t been enough to get anyone in Hollywood to back the project with real money. Dredd screen writer Alex Garland was recently asked about Dredd 2 and had some heart-felt, yet disappointing words. (more…)

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.
