HBO‘s Game of Thrones is taking a different approach to casting for season six of the series. Usually, they cast a relative unknown who then goes on to be incredible and make themselves known to the world. For this sixth season HBO is bringing out the big casting guns with the addition of Ian McShane (Deadwood) last week and now Max Von (OMG!!!) Sydow. What role might he be playing?

‘Dredd’ Teaser Trailer Totally Throaty

Karl Urban is throwing out the throaty dialogue that Judge Dredd fans expect in this teaser trailer, the full trailer hits the Internet tomorrow, and even this short look paints a grim picture of Dredd’s violent world and . . .

This NerdBastard couldn’t be happier!

This reboot looks to cleanse the “Dredd” palate of that Stallone and Rob Schneider aftertaste. Don’t get me wrong, there’s been many a Sunday afternoon that this NerdBastard has found himself watching Stallone’s Judge Dredd movie and not changing the channel. Max von Sydow is great in it and Rob does some of his best comedic work to date, but it still leaves a Dredd fan with a hole in the gut that never seems to get filled. Perhaps this reboot will fill that hole.

Dredd takes place on a fictional Earth created as a result of the Atomic Wars. Survivors of this period are living in Mega-Cities, which protects its citizens from the Cursed Earth, a radioactive desert environment populated by mutants. The main story takes place in Mega-City One, where the police who are now called judges have the power to use police brutality to some extent to fight extreme murders. One man, Judge Dredd (Karl Urban), a senior law enforcement officer, teams up with a cadet called Judge Anderson (Olivia Thirlby) to track down a terrorist organization lead by Ma-Ma (Lena Headey), who is responsible for selling a reality-altering drug called Slo-Mo.
