FX Puts in Pilot Order For Alex Garland’s ‘Devs’ Series

Maybe I’m slightly biased because of how much I LOVED Ex Machina, but I’ll see anything Alex Garland makes.  Annihilation was pretty great, minus the final 10 minutes, and Karl Urban has now gone on record to say that Alex “directed Dredd” (which was AMAZING), so that puts more positive tally marks in Garland’s collum. It appears his next project will […]

Ex Machina: Serious Drama + Serious Humor = Seriously Ominous

By Octavio Karbank Great science fiction should have you asking questions even after the final credits have rolled. Upon leaving the theater not only should you be left capable of having a coffeehouse conversation, but you should also want to, as you explore the nature of the film you just watched.

If We Do Get A Dredd Sequel, This May Be The Source Material

New Footage In This Dredd Featurette
