Is there still a chance for a Dredd sequel?

So what about that DREDD sequel? Well, what about it? Everyone wants it, but why isnít it happening? Iíve seen plenty of shit sequels make their way to the big screen, and the one time it seems like we might all be unanimous on one decision, thereís some sort of hold up. Unfortunately, the sales at the box office didnít do any talks of a second installment any favors, however, weíre...

Awesome Art We've Found Around The Net: The Big Lebowski, Blade Runner, Dredd, Zombieland

Some cliche somewhere said that 'a picture is worth a thousand words.' This has proven to be the case for me and especially when it comes to fan art. I have always sought out great fan art and have wanted to share it with as many people as possible. "Awesome Artwork We've Found Around The Net" is the outlet for that passion. In this column I will showcase the kick-ass...

The UnPopular Opinion: Dredd

THE UNPOPULAR OPINION is an ongoing column featuring different takes on films that either the writer HATED, but that the majority of film fans LOVED, or that the writer LOVED, but that most others LOATHED. We're hoping this column will promote constructive and geek fueled discussion. Enjoy! † ****SOME SPOILERS ENSUE**** Every so often a movie comes around that just clicks with...

What would Karl Urban like to see in the Dredd sequel?

Whether a DREDD sequel will happen or not is still up in the air even though quite a few fans of the first film have been rather noisy about the topic. When it comes to star Karl Urban , he's all for it. It's nice to hear an actor so passionate about a project especially one that has such a solid fanbase rooted with the comics. Urban wants to do right by the character when it...

Want a Dredd sequel? Then sign the petition from 2000AD!

Ah, DREDD, one of the most kick ass comic book films made to date and yet nobody saw it...until blu-ray, that is. Sales have soared for the film on video and helped to cement it as a cult classic in a very short time, leaving everyone wondering if we'll ever get to see the continued adventures of Judge Dredd (as played by Karl Urban , of course) in Mega City One. It's been a frustrating...

Sean Penn gets in on the action in this first pic from Pierre Morel's The Gunman

The story follows a former special forces soldier turned contractor named Martin Terrier (Penn) who works for a non-government organization and finds himself suddenly drawn back into...

C'mon Hollywood: Give us a Dredd sequel!

Last September a little comic book action pic called DREDD 3D hit theaters with a thud , leaving the prospects of a sequel in the “never gonna happen” category. Although most folks who caught the film seemed to really enjoy it, word of mouth did little to up its numbers at the box office, leaving little hope of seeing the further exploits of Judge Dredd in the rebooted...

Karl Urban on a sequel to Dredd 3D: "It's entirely possible."

It's a shame that DREDD 3D bombed has hard as it did in theaters but the truth is it was always going to be difficult for the film to shake off the stink left behind from the 1995 Sylvester Stallone movie. Sure us comic and movie geeks were pretty psyched for DREDD 3D but most people still associated it with the Stallone film and figured it would be just as bad. But DREDD...

Cool Videos: Are you a Dredd fan hoping for a sequel? Check out this fan made masterpiece!

DREDD 3D was one of the highlights of 2012 for me. It was fun, violent, and action-packed. Despite not gaining nearly the support from movie-goers that it deserved, there was still hope for a while that it may have done well enough to warrant a sequel. But, that dream was dashed last month by producer Adi Shankar. So, while DREDD 2 may never happen, we can still be happy that fans...

According to producer Adi Shankar, Dredd 2 is probably not happening

You saw DREDD 3D-- it was pretty cool, right? Maybe better than you were expecting? Well I'm here to tell you not to hold out any hopes for a sequel. Producer Adi Shankar did a Reddit IAmA last week, and one of the top questions asked had to do with a follow-up for DREDD. Here's the bulk of what was said on the subject: Probably not. But I am working on a Dredd short in...

Best Selling DVDs/Blu-Rays on JoBlo.com (January 2013)

January sales are usually quite similar to our December best-selling Blu-Rays & DVDs because most studios try to release their biggest titles right around Christmas, so there's usually not much left over for January. To that end, we were very happy to see one of the most underrated films of the year, DREDD , finish atop the January...

You can bring Dredd 3D and its special brand of justice home this coming January 8th

DREDD 3D's mediocre box office veritably broke my little fanboy heart.  For a film I so loved, one that actually completely lived up to the enormous level of hype to which it had been vaulted by months and months of anticipation, to crumble away in such a miserably short time? I still can't decide if it makes me sad or mad, but either way it was crime. This is probably about 1%...
