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.

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. For those of us old enough to remember the Before Times of the Internet, we remember seeing the mythical original series Star Trek Blooper Reel once or perhaps twice a year in a crowded, unusually hot hotel conference room at the annual local Sci-Fi convention. 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…)

Quoth Gary ‘Jonesy’ Jones: “I’m filing this in the “Who Gives A Shit” section of my Memory Warehouse.”
As J.J. Abrams was announcing the new cast for Star Wars Episode VII yesterday, FOX was quietly canceling Abrams sci-fi police procedural show Almost Human starring Karl Urban and Michael Ealy. Many people won’t be surprised. The show never really got off the ground in the ratings department, but do you know why? (more…)
One of the most underrated films in the last few years, Pete Travis’ incarnation of Dredd, while it didn’t do so hot at the box office, has risen to gather quite the fan following. Petitions abound for a sequel, the people cry out for more and even Karl Urban, the Dredd-man himself, has expressed how intensely he wants another film of the franchise to be made.
