What do Judge Dredd, Mad Max and Adventure Time all have in common? They’re three of the best post-apocalyptic narratives we’ve ever seen. And they’re all slightly ludicrous, ranging from outright surrealism to mad social satire. In fact, the best post-apocalyptic storytelling is usually kind of ridiculous.
Ex Machina is one of the smartest, most thought-provoking science fiction movies in ages. And that probably conjures images of a slow, introspective Sundance-y film — but actually, Ex Machina moves at a ruthless pace, and kicks your ass up one all and down the other. Minor spoilers ahead...
Dredd was a beloved comic-book adaptation that actually did justice to the iconic post-apocalyptic lawman. But don't hold your breath for a sequel — even though fans have been pushing for Dredd 2 for a few years, writer Alex Garland tells us it's not going to happen.
Fans keep asking Dredd producer Adi Shankar about the possibility of a Dredd sequel, but there's some harsh financial realities preventing it. Here, Shanker explains how Dredd 2 could possibly happen — or, as he so eloquently puts it, "The guy who dresses up like The Crow is going to you a lesson in film finance."
Anticipation can be a dangerous thing. Sometimes you wait and wait for a book, movie or comic to materialize, and it's bound to be a letdown. But every once in a while, all your patience actually pays off. Which project did you wait years for... and it was totally worth the wait?
We celebrated Jeff VanderMeer's novel Annihilation as a weird science novel that's actually weird enough, and an antidote to J.J. Abrams-style mysteries. Now, the movie version has gotten a writer/director who can handle some weirdness: Alex Garland.
Behold the "bootleg" animated Judge Dredd webseries in its entirety. And it is dark, gross, and violent—and honestly I felt weird watching it at work. And that's probably the very feeling that the creator wanted to impart to the audience.
Here is the longest Judge Dredd: Superfiend trailer yet, along with a lot of footage of Judge Death just going bananas on the citizens of Mega-City One.
Behold the first-ever footage from the unauthorized (or, as the creator is calling it, bootleg) animated series JUDGE DREDD: Superfiend. This teaser trailer looks insane. Good.
Still waiting around for the next Dredd movie? Well we've got something that might help curb the hunger: a first look at the unofficial animated Dredd series.
Despite the fact that 2012's Dredd movie was a vast improvement over the first Judge Dredd film, and that many fans are clamoring (even singing) for a sequel, none seems to be forthcoming. But at least now there's going to be an unofficial, seven-part webseries from Dredd's producer Adi Shankar.
You know how bad we need a sequel to Karl Urban's pretty damned good Judge Dredd movie? Even Sylvester Stallone is willing to singing its praises, at least in this wonderful new Legolambs video. It's not quite the magnum opus of the Predator musical, but man, it ain't bad.
Most right-thinking people loved Karl Urban as Judge Dredd and want a second helping — but if we get another film, it won't be a continuation of Dredd, showing the Judge upholding the law in Mega-City One. Instead, it'll be a prequel, showing how the judges came to be.
Jeez, Judge Dredd is actually worse than I'd remembered. Especially after watching Dredd, which does Mega-City One's greatest lawman properly. Here's the scene where you might think, for a second, that this is at least going to be a fun ride. And then... campmageddon!
Yes, the fan-favorite Firefly crew are finally back in action, thanks to Dark horse's new series, while the Dredd movie gets a comic sequel as well. Plus Snowpiercer, super-Brits, Captain Jane T. Kirk (really!) and more, all in this week's comics!
Lately, it seems like every story has to be massive, or nobody cares. Every Doctor Who story is about saving the entire universe. The latest Hobbit movie seemed to be trying to be a Lord of the Rings-style saga. Every action movie needs global stakes. Can we talk about our epic epidemic?
Yesterday's dystopian thrillers about crime-fighting are tomorrow's perfectly rational solutions to the crime problem. At least, that's what a bunch of criminologists told The Atlantic.
Science fiction is an actor's dream. The genre has created some breakout stars, like Harrison Ford, but it's also turned scores of working actors into beloved fan-favorites, who work the convention circuit. But here are 12 great science fiction actors who swing for the fences, and just don't get the appreciation they…
Your favorite heroes are given the portrait treatment they all so justly deserve. Mondo Gallery is hosting a showing of Mike Mitchell portrait work, and we've got a little sneak look of what's to come. Couldn't all of your walls use a little MacReady?
The very first trailer for Judge Minty blew us away with a bad ass look inside Mega-City One. Fan and filmmaker Steven Sterlacchini has now released another trailer for his Judge Dredd inspired work, which looks way more fun than the Karl Urban movie — and we liked that flick.
