Two new posters hit the net for Star Trek Into Darkness Thursday evening. These show John Cho’s Sulu and Karl Urban’s Bones. This follows a new featurette and Scotty poster released earlier in the week.
The new Judge Dredd was on Jimmy Fallon last night to promote the imminent release of his Lionsgate-developed reboot entitled Dredd 3D. Things got started in the interview with the former SNL star talking up the positive reviews for Karl Urban’s new film (Rotten Tomatoes currently pegs the film north of 85%.) The conversation then stirred to the mouth-centric costume that the actor has to wear and problems with acting in these particular fatigues. It was a pretty brief segment, but it did feature the voice that Urban came up with for his character. Continue Reading
For those of you who have not yet had their fill of Dredd 3D promos, there is a brand new featurette out for the Pete Travis-directed movie. This one has the behind-the-scenes crew and movie-lead Karl Urban talking up the film’s protagonist, explaining the character to the a whole new group of fans who may be unfamiliar with what the futuristic cop is all about. Continue Reading
There is probably not a whole lot of anticipation bubbling around Pete Travis’ reboot of the Judge Dredd franchise, but the fact of the matter is it is one of the few offerings that really seems to try in September this year so for that it has our complete attention. A new clip is out to promote the film today, and it has franchise lead and Star Trek actor Karl Urban announcing that ‘he is the law’ by using a speaker system that was previously utilized by Game of Thrones actress Lena Headey in a clip released earlier this month. Be sure to check that one out if you have not already because it is actually pretty decent by comparison. Continue Reading
Check out this new clip from the Judge Dredd reboot coming out next month. It gives us a really close look at Ma-Ma who is the film’s central antagonist played by an artificially scarred Lena Headey. Most of you may remember the actress from her role as the ruthless Cersei on HBO’s Game of Thrones. She’s legitimately creepy in this, so her appearance alone is definitely worth the view.
Aside from Ma-Ma’s introduction, the following also manages to reinforce the plot of the Peter Travis-directed feature. Essentially, Karl Urban’s Judge Dredd and a rookie judge (Olivia Thirlby) are tasked with bringing down a gang that deals with a reality-altering drug called SLO-MO. Continue Reading
There is a Dredd reboot coming our way in case you have not heard. The Pete Travis adaptation of this franchise promises to be a lot more than the Stallonian version that hit theaters in the 90′s, but perhaps a refresher on the source material is in order here. A new featurette has just hit the web this week to chronicle the film’s backdrop which is that of a violent, futuristic city that contains cops who have excess authority.
Things you will learn from this one is that Judge Dredd is considered a genre transcending piece and that it is about the environment more than any other element of the story. While that is not exactly what you want to hear about a movie, it should surely have sci-fi fans taking a good long look this property. Continue Reading
The first official trailer for The Loft has just hit the web. This movie stars Karl Urban, Eric Stonestreet, James Marsden, Wentworth Miller, and Matthias Schoenaerts as five friends who own a loft together where they apparently cheat on their wives and/or girlfriends. It is a thriller, so obviously things come back to bite them in the end.
The following trailer is one of the red-band variety meaning it is NSFW. There is some brief nudity and foul language which might be the best way to sell this movie’s creepiness. Also, Modern Family’s Eric Stonestreet does not really appear to have an extensive part judging from this first look which might be a bit disappointing. Continue Reading
There is a brand new poster out for Lionsgate’s Dredd reboot that is worth a quick view. Just to recap, the film is not anything major as it is set for a September release which should give it away, but this is the start of a potential low-budget trilogy. The project’s writer Alex Garland went on the record saying last month that the movie needed to gross $50 million domestically in order to warrant a sequel for the Karl Urban-starrer.
In terms of setting, this is very much your classic R-rated Judge Dredd. The backdrop is a fictional earth where police are now called judges and brutality is in their nature. This Pete Travis-directed film casts Olivia Thirlby and Lena Headey in supporting roles with the former playing a partner-like cadet named Judge Anderson. Headey is the villainous lead Ma-Ma who is responsible for selling a reality-altering drug called Slo-Mo. Continue Reading
There is a heap of violence in what you are about to watch, so be advised if you have children around or consider yourself squeamish because Dredd is an R-rated feature and it shows. That said, here is the debut clip of the Pete Travis-directed film starring Karl Urban which has Judge Dredd and his rookie partner (Olivia Thirlby) busting down a door and ruining the day of a handful of druggies. The narcotic in question is a fictional one called slo-mo which slows everything down for the user, thus the way this particular scene was shot. Continue Reading
