Judge Dredd: Mega-City One | Moustache Reaction


According to Entertainment Weekly, there's a live action Judge Dredd TV show in the works. The unstoppable lawman who polices the sprawling urban chaos that is Mega-City One was created by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra back in 1977 for 2000 AD. Dredd has been portrayed in movies by Sylvester Stallone and Karl Urban. Urban's 'Dredd' came out in 2012 and although not a box office hit, it has developed quite a cult following.


IM Global Television president Mark Stern (Battlestar Glactica), IM Global Television CEO Stuart Ford, and Jason and Chris Kingsley who own UK game developer, Rebellion will act as executive producers on the show. Ford and the Kingsleys were executive producers on 'Dredd'.


There have been talks of a sequel to 'Dredd' for quite some time, but it has never gone beyond that. As a fan of the movie, Urban's performance and the world they created, this is something that disappointed me. The show - currently titled Judge Dredd: Mega-City One - is not meant to be a direct follow up to the 2012 movie and is said to follow a team of Judges. At this early stage there are no details regarding casting. But considering Urban has already shown interest in reprising the role and the executive producers of 'Dredd' are involved, wouldn't it be great to see Urban return to Mega-City One?


Who would you like to see play Judge Dredd in this live action reboot? Do you want to see Karl Urban return or would you like to see something more reminiscent of Sylvester Stallone's portrayal? Let us know by leaving a comment below or find us on Facebook and Twitter.

These days it seems that most movies and TV Shows about World War 2 focus on the Americans. We have even seen a British operation depicted as carried out by the Americans - U-571 - yes Hollywood, we're still bitter. That's not to say there haven't been some good ones; Saving Private Ryan, Band of Brothers, The Pacific, Hacksaw Ridge, these are all brilliant depictions of World War 2. But are we in danger of younger generations thinking the Americans single-handedly won the war? What happened to the good old days when movies were made about British actions? Or better yet, movies like The Longest Day and A Bridge Too Far, which told the story from the point of view of all involved, including the local civilians. That said, could movies like Dunkirk and Darkest Hour be a sign that things are changing?



Recently we spoke with Lance Nielsen, the Director/Writer/Producer is currently working on a TV series that depicts the actions of British Airborne forces during the war. "P…

Breathe Easy: Average Guy Movie Review

Breathe Easy is an independent film, shot in multiple locations throughout ten countries. This global accomplishment took more than 20 directors roughly a year to make. Strange clouds have appeared in the sky across the globe and people are starting to behave in very strange ways. Governments are scrambling to deal with the crisis, but without knowing the cause, what can they do except...Breathe Easy? 



In a time when Hollywood studios can afford to film all over the world, it's easy for us to become indifferent. But an independent film shooting in ten countries including the UK, US, Australia and Hong Kong is an incredible achievement. And the results speak for themselves. Instead of focusing on one region or group during a global disaster - with small updates of events occurring elsewhere - the action is shared pretty much equally across all locations. It's an interesting look at how different people react to the same situation. Some will run, some will hide. Some will just ge…

So That Avengers 4 Trailer Leak...Do We Believe It?

Warning: Possible Spoilers

Esquire have recently reported on a post to the Marvel Studios subreddit. A user posted what is supposed to be a description of a leaked trailer for Avengers 4, which has now been deleted.
But the question is; is it real? Some consider it "too detailed to be fake", while others are calling it "bad fan fiction".

Here's what the post said:

The trailer starts off showing the damaged Infinity Gauntlet in a field on the farm planet. As the camera focuses in on the gauntlet, we hear Tony's voice: "We were destined to lose." Epic music score starts. The Quinjet is shown landing in a Wakandan wasteland as we hear Rogers say: "We have come so far." Tony and Nebula step off the jet as the remaining Avengers approach. Steve has a look of relief and says: "Tony". Tony, seemingly defeated, shakes his head and gives a friendly smirk back to Cap. Marvel Studios logo appears. We get a glimpse of the Battle of New York from…
