Default Re: Judge Dredd Reboot!! - Part 2

So Dredd is a clone and they really have alternate dimensions and undead Judges and stuff? That's a lot weirder than I thought. I mean I know It's Comics! and all but I always thought Dredd was just a dark but more or less mundane dystopian sci-fi thing.

Any trade recommendations for a first timer?

The comics can get pretty far out there. Mutants, clones, alternate dimensions, jigsaw disease...

Finally got around to watching this and I loved it. Karl Urban was perfect for the role as he has that memorable voice.

Now keep in mind, I knew of the character, but didn't have much knowledge of the source material. My only exposure to it was the 1995 film.

Judge Dredd wasn't fu**ing around in this and puts Stallone's version to shame, which is saying a lot considering I'm a huge fan of Sly.

My favorite scene?

Sad I didn't see this in theaters. Got the blu ray
and have watched it 4 times already. My favorite 2012 comic book film. Never would have guessed that. Urban was amazing but I was very impressed with Olivia Thirlby too.

Dredd screenwriter Alex Garland gives a pretty explicit interview in which he addresses the accusations he ripped off the The Raid on Youtube.

Basically he says he wrote Dredd before The Raid back in 2009 and film journalists should know better to accuse him knowing how long it takes for a movie to go from development to pitchong to pre-production to production and to post production.


He says if he was influenced by anything it was the original John Carpenter Assualt On Precinct 13. He was watching it late on tv one night and that is what inspired his take on a Dredd film after his first attempts at a script didn't work out.


Garland said in the Judge Dredd comics there are two types of stories the day in the life ones that go on for a few issues and the big sweeping epics that last half a year. Garland tried writing a the big sweeping epic with the Dark Judges but it didn't work because they are supernatural riffs on Judge Dredd and his world. Audiences would need knowledge of the character and his world for it to work so the storyline would better suit a sequel.

Also a big sweeping epic featuring the Dark Judges would have been much more expensive to make.

It was always a little off the wall with the ideas the writers played with but the more weirder stuff (that took it beyond being an exaggerated dystopian vision of the future) didn't come until they expanded beyond MC-1 with "The Cursed Earth", having vampire robots, cloned dinosaurs* (long before Jurassic park nicked the same basic idea) & aliens etc, then later on with "The Judge Child" saga, which brought in more aliens, the aforementioned Jigsaw disease, and magic with Murd the Necromancer. Then they effortlessly brought in the alternate dimension stuff with Judge Death's first appearance.

Since then there's been time travel and vampire judges ('City of the Damned', a follow up & conclusion to the Judge Child saga, wherein Dredd loses his eyes) and Werewolves too (Dredd even became one briefly).

Ans of course the alternate dimension deal was used again for the 3 Crossovers with Batman.

*Afaik that dinosaur deal was the first time 2000AD crossed over with another story they were running, as one of the resurrected T-Tex's (named Satanus) was the son of 'Old One eye', an especially nasty T-Rex from the 'Flesh' story that had gone before. Satanus went on to feature in Nemesis the Warlock as well.

Anything involving Judge Death and the Dark Judges, especially if drawn by Brian Bolland.
Also Judge Caligula.

I'm assuming IF we get a chance for a sequel, the fans are wanting Judge Death and the Dark Judges? That's what I've been hearing.

Would LOVE to see Urban doing that, but I think the idea was to do The Cursed Earth with the sequel according to Garland.

You can add my `s to the Dredd sequel fund when I buy the BluRay sometime during this week.

Sure hope that we get a sequel to this one day, and with Urban, dammit!

I just discovered the movies "slo-mo" soundtrack is a Justin Bieber song slowed down 800%.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QspuCt1FM9M
Original:

So as Ma-Ma falls to her death, it's Justin Bieber they play. Well done movie. You just get better and better.
The humour is so subtle throughout the film.

Yeah, Cursed Earth for the second and then he wanted to try Judge Death in the third I believe.

Yep that was right. Although both Travis and Garland have said in interviews they wont be coming back to the franchise, so that plan could change I suppose.

Has any of you, guys, read "Young Death", the origin story of Judge Death? Pretty awesome stuff. I love how Judge Death's father is a sadistic dentist and how Death becomes an overzealous, murderous judge before being transformed with 3 other pal judges into something else entirely by the 2 sister witches.
I also love "life and Death..." drawn by the great Fraser Irving. Didn't think anyone could touch Judge Death after Bolland, but this guy sure proved me wrong.
Man, I hope Death makes it to the big screen some day. He is my second favorite villain after and I've been waiting for this moment for a long time now.
Plus Urban is the perfect Dredd and Thirlby the perfect Anderson to fight the Dark Judges, damn' it!

Now if a British distributor payed $7m you'd expect Lionsgate would've taken the total to at least $40m. All before release. The only costs they're recouping then are the marketing costs, which I haven't seen.

"During the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2010, the film attracted $30 million in worldwide pre-sales to distributors in 90% of theatrical markets.[36][37] The sales included a $7 million deal with British distributor Entertainment Film Distributors. On 2 November 2010, Lions Gate Entertainment secured the North American distribution rights to Dredd.[38]"
