FX‘s Television Critics Association (TCA) summer press event wasn’t just about returning series like American Horror Story and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, with FX Networks and FX Produtions CEO John Landgraf announcing that the cable network has upped award-winning writer/director Alex Garland‘s (Annihilation, Ex Machina) Devs from pilot to limited series order. Produced by FX Productions, Garland is […]
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 […]
Did you watch Ex Machina? If the answer is “no” you should go fix that right away and we’ll wait for you to come back to finish this article. If the answer is “yes” then you already know why director Alex Garland’s next movie getting a release date is a good thing. According to Variety […]
Dredd has gone on to have quite a life on home and streaming releases. The film has garnered a real love from a cult following, meaning cries for a sequel ring out pretty often. The first was pretty good too, so no reason they couldn’t build from there. However, that film once looked pretty different. […]
By Michele Brittany, West Coast Correspondent Thursday afternoon’s panel, From Dredd to Zenith: This is 2000AD, was hosted by charismatic PR & Marketing Director Michael Molcher. He was joined by Carlos Ezquerra, co-creator of the series Judge Dredd, Andy Diggle, writer and former editor of 2000AD and the artist Jock. Molcher led off the hour […]
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. And so we arrive […]
By Chris Thompson [audio:http://popculturehound.net/podcast/PCHAtTheMoviesEpisode7.mp3] Following on from my last film-based podcast with Bill Plympton to discuss his new animated feature Cheatin’ (which you can still listen to here), this time I’m back with writer/director Alex Garland to talk about his recent sci-fi thriller Ex Machina which is in cinemas now. Alex & I discuss the […]
Ex Machina is the directorial debut of Alex Garland (Dredd) and stars Domnhall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac and Alicia Vikander. The film focuses on the relationship between humans and artificial intelligence as a young programmer is put into an experiment by evaluating the human traits of an A.I. female. Ex Machina hits US theaters April 10. Here’s […]
A lot of fans (including myself) are still holding hope for a sequel to 2012’s Dredd starring Karl Urban as Judge Dredd. Though the movie didn’t do too well at the box office, the buzz of a sequel has never really calmed down and Urban himself is often urging fans to stay vocal about the […]
By one of our West Coast corespondents Gavin Lees: This year’s Emerald City Comicon featured a number of film screenings at Seattle’s historic Cinerama, with some of the stars in attendance. Saturday night’s main event was Dredd 3D, with star Karl Urban, production designer Jock, and 2000AD’s Arthur Wyatt, who is currently working on Underbelly, […]
Karl Urban has a habit of lightly trolling fandom. Do you remember his "first footage from Star Trek Into Darkness" stunt?
Karl Urban likes to get it done at breakfast.
There's something about artificial intelligence in the air at the moment, I think.
Big Joe gets his makeup done.
Chewing the Mega City fat with Judge Joe Dredd.
Chopper. Satanus. Dark Judges. But will any of this ever happen?
Oh... this was very interesting.
Between the talking head clips there’s quite a lot of new clips from Dredd in this featurette. And because you need it, there’s also a primer on the creation and development of the character. And there we had Jason Kingsley saying that “we need” a police force like the Judges and that Dredd does the […]
This clip from Pete Travis’ Dredd shows off the look of the slow-motion drug use sequences well. And it also showcases just how bloody the film can be. Note that the production design in the clip is, to a very large extent, naturalistic stuff, barely augmented from what you might find in the world today. […]
Yesterday saw the Dredd panel at the London Film and Comic Con, the centrepiece of which was a full and meaty scene from the film. It was, according to one of our pairs of spying eyes, not a scene in the widely leaked screenplay, but something added in reshoots. The scene apparently took place on […]
