If They Make A New Dredd Movie, It Might Be A Prequel

Posted by Bob Muir on Sep 9, 2014 in Cinema, Comic Books


Despite “only” earning $41 million (from a $45 million budget), 2012’s Dredd has a good amount of fans eagerly awaiting a sequel. Lead actor Karl Urban agrees and has been encouraging efforts to push a new film into production. But if that time does come, it may not be a sequel, but a prequel. Speaking at Chicago Comic-Con, Urban suggested that the film might explore how the Judges were established. “It’s more likely that we’ll do the Origins story, with Dredd trekking through the Cursed Earth to find the first Chief Judge Fargo,” Urban said, referring to a 2006 storyline that was meant to tie up various loose threads from previous comics.

Karl Urban Keeps Dredd 2 Hopes Alive

Posted by Ben Huber on Apr 6, 2014 in Cinema


You know, I wonder if Vin Diesel and Karl Urban are friends. They seem like they’d get along! Both are desperately dedicated to their poorly performing franchises (Riddick and Dredd respectively), and are working hard to get sequels made. Who knows if Vin Diesel will get a fourth Riddick film made, but Karl Urban is hard at work on getting Dredd 2 off the ground. He recently created a video for fans in which he thanks fans for their support of Dredd (a fan petition for a sequel has over 100,000 signatures) and promises that they’re working very hard on trying to make Dredd 2 happen. Here’s hoping! Read more…

Amazing Judge Dredd Cosplay is Part Make-up, Part Costume, All Awesome

Posted by Ben Huber on Nov 30, 2013 in Comic Books, Fandom


What does into making a really good cosplay? A costume you’ve slaved over making? Finding the right tool or piece to bring it altogether? What about some make-up and latex prosthetics? If you’re going to make your lower jaw look like Judge Dredd’s lower jaw… then go all the way, like these guys did. It’s an amazing combination of latex and clever make-up that eerily replicates the distinctive shape of Dredd’s face. Combine that with a pitch-perfect helmet and the rest of the costume, and you’ve got one of the best Judge Dredd costume’s I’ve ever seen. I’ve included a video below of the process behind making it.

A Look Into Making the World of Dredd

Posted by Ben Huber on Dec 31, 2012 in Cinema, Comic Books


With Dredd coming out on DVD and Blu-ray on January 8th, it’s no surprise that the marketing machine is spinning up. IGN has a short clip that goes into a bit of the work done to make the world Dredd takes place in. It’s not super-detailed, but it’s getting me interested in checking out Dredd finally when it releases. I missed out on the chance to catch it in theaters, and I heard great things about it, so now I’ll have a chance to redeem my nerdy self. Watch the video below. Read more…

Catch the First Trailer for Dredd

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Jun 21, 2012 in Cinema, Comic Books

Here’s our first good look at Lionsgate’s upcoming Judge Dredd reboot — though, I hesitate to use the term. Dredd 3D looks as though it’ll take on a more serious tone than the previous film, and I don’t think anyone could argue that the lack of Rob Schneider could possibly hurt it. However, as some fans have pointed out, the film’s plot seems awfully close to that of The Raid — the martial arts blockbuster Ben mentioned on our podcast the other week. Of course, The Raid is just over-the-top action with little substance in terms of plot, so that might be where Dredd has an edge. Just how much of one? We’ll have to wait until this fall to find out. Dredd 3D hits theaters September 21st.

Was Dredd’s Director Judged and Found Wanting?

Posted by Michael Sacco on Oct 8, 2011 in Cinema, Comic Books

Karl Urban as Judge Dredd

Pete Travis may have discovered that justice is blind in the film industry. Travis, director of the upcoming Judge Dredd film (spartanly titled Dredd) is rumored to have been asked to step down as director as the film entered its post-production phase. The LA Times reports that “creative differences” between Travis and the studio were to blame, but who can ever really know what that phrase means? In the meantime, screenwriter Alex Garland has allegedly taken Travis’ place in the editing room. Does this mean dreddful news for the film? We’ll have to see, when and if Dredd meets its September release date.



On a Bicycle Built for Dredd

Posted by Michael Sacco on Jan 22, 2011 in Cinema, Comic Books


Karl Urban’s new Judge Dredd film (spartanly titled “Dredd”) is filming in South Africa even at this very moment. Some set photos have inevitably started to appear, including the titular Judge in full judicial kit riding the Lawmaster, his souped-up motorcycle. Reasonably-sized, yet ostentatious and ominous. A perfect for He Who Is The Law. All in all, I’m hopeful that the new film will be a little more faithful to the source material than the Stallone vehicle from the 90s. Less Batman and Robin, more Mad Max. Read more…

Karl Urban Looks Dreddful

Posted by Michael Sacco on Nov 21, 2010 in Cinema, Comic Books

Karl Urban as Judge Dredd

The upcoming Judge Dredd remake, spartanly titled Dredd, has just started filming, but a set photo of Karl Urban as the titular ass-kicker has already leaked, giving us a sneak peek at his costume. Thankfully, it looks like very few liberties have been taken with Dredd’s getup, and it looks slightly more gritty than the version used in Stallone’s terrible take on the character. Urban has done pretty well in the other genre pieces he’s been in, sometimes in spite of the subject matter, so it’ll be interesting to see how we judge this Dredd. Read more…
