Sick and tired of requests from their nagging spouses that they don’t cheat on them, five totally cool dudes become proud owners of The Loft. It’s a clubhouse where they can put their wieners in younger, blonder women without their wives finding out. It’s ironclad! Until, oops, MURDER!

Karl Urban and James Marsden lead the cast of friends who suddenly can’t trust one another when it seems that one of their own has transformed their poon palace into a murder house. Not cool, bro. There are house rules about that sort of thing.

What do we have to do to get a Dredd sequel made? Everyone has been begging and pleading but it seems that the powers that be won’t be happy until we ask in song. Well, fine. Here it is.

When we last saw Riddick he was choking the dragon on the surface of the desert planet where he’s been living by himself for ten years. This new trailer gives us a bit more. A team of bounty hunters track him and attempt to take his head. However, Riddick enjoys his dragon-choking time deeply and doesn’t cotton to interruption so he begins picking them off one by one. And then the monsters awaken and things really get crazy.

It’s like First Blood in space! How come nobody thought to make this sooner?

Comic-Con 2012 has also brought us this first clip from the upcoming Dredd. Here we see Karl Urban judging, jurying, and executing all over the place as he busts in on some tweakers and crashes the party. And their faces.

Slow motion in action movies gets a pretty bad rap, but here it works really well. If they truly invented a drug that made the world look like it was shot with the Phantom camera, I’d try it. Oh wait. Am I addicted already? They say the first hit’s free. When’s this movie come out?!? My skin itches and I want to ride the snake to Valhalla!

Moviegoers could be forgiven for assuming that anything with the word “Dredd” in the title is a piece of shit, thanks to notably shitty piece of shit Judge Dredd starring Sylvester Stallone. But if you dig a little deeper, you’ll find that the comics featuring the Judge Dredd character are pretty well-respected, and now this trailer comes out and actually looks really cool and I don’t know what to think anymore.

As if that weren’t enough, this trailer also has Olivia Thirlby, famous for playing sweet smartasses in stuff like Juno and The Wackness doing what can be called for lack of a better term “kicking ass.” The lesson is clear: Don’t watch the trailer for Dredd if you’re not prepared to have all of your preconceived notions rocked to their cores. Or if you don’t like guns.

6 photosLena Headey

So far our only looks at Dredd have revealed Karl Urban in a helmet but today, there’s a new look at a few of the other cast members. Both helmeted and non.

Check out the first look at Olivia Thirlby as Judge Cassandra Anderson and Lena Headey as the villian Ma-Ma. You’ll also find a few shots of Judge Dredd running from explosions and kicking in doors. Two aspects of the job that Night Court never had the budget to bring to the screen. (Empire and SuperHero Hype)

Longshanks http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=8863 Dredd's suit is definitely more leathery than Sly's in the 1995 Judge Dredd. Also, what do you guys think of Urban, mainly around the mouth area? Is he rocking the right amount of stumble?

A photo of Karl Urban decked out in Judge Dredd gear for the upcoming Pete Travis-directed Dredd has found its way online. Comic book artist Jock tweeted the pic that was taken during rehearsal, which explains the low quality. Dredd‘s suit is definitely more leathery than Sly’s in the 1995 Judge Dredd. Also, what do you guys think of Urban, mainly around the mouth area? Is he rocking the right amount of stumble? Sporting a sufficient frown? Damn that Dredd mask for hiding the eyes. A judge, jury, and executioner needs those for proper sentencing. (Cinematical)

If you’re into blind vampires, Catholicism, and Paul Bettany’s abs, you’re really going to like this new trailer for Priest. If you could live without most of those things, you clearly haven’t looked hard enough at Paul Bettany‘s abs. A man of the cloth with a six pack like that. It’s almost not fair, am I right, ladies?

The film stars Paul Bettany’s abs, Karl Urban, Lily Collins, Maggie Q, Christopher Plummer, Cam Gigandet, and Stephen Moyer. The story revolves around a legendary Warrior Priest (Bettany’s abs) who lives in obscurity among other downtrodden human inhabitants in walled-in dystopian cities ruled by the Church. When his niece (Collins) is abducted by a murderous pack of vampires, Priest breaks his sacred vows to venture out on a quest to find her before they turn her into one of them. Maggie Q and Cam Gigandet also help kick some blind vampire ass. Seems unfair going up against handicapped vampires, but if they’re anything like my neighbor, they don’t let you steal their valuables without leaving some teeth marks first.

I can’t embed or download the trailer, so check it out at Crackle here.

Olivia Thirlby To Shadow ‘Judge Dredd’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/olivia-thirlby-to-shadow-judge-dredd/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/olivia-thirlby-to-shadow-judge-dredd/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Olivia Thirlby, 2008's It Girl (non-Kat Dennings version), will be joining Karl Urban when he shoves his gavel up bad guys' butts in the Judge Dredd reboot. Thirlby is best known for her turns in Juno and The Wackness. It looks like she's attempting to break into bigger, less-shoe gazey projects between this and The Darkest Hour. In other words, momma wants a pool. For Dredd, she will play a young telepath who shadows Dredd on his beat. C'mon, do you really need to read minds to know where he's sticking that gavel? (Up butts.) (Variety)

Karl Urban was offered the role of Judge Dredd a few weeks ago, and now he's officially said, "Sure, why the hell not." The film's producers Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich are determined to make this new adaptation not suck like the Stallone one did: “The main thing about Dredd is that it’s a fantastic comic that was completely messed up 20 years ago," said Macdonald. "Our idea is to make a very hard, R-rated, gritty, realistic movie of Dredd in Megacity, so we’ve got to get the tone right. He’s not going to take off his helmet. His bike is going to feel real. He’s going to hit people and it’s going to feel real." No word yet if director Pete Travis will bother developing tactile technology to literally punch audience members in the face. It seems like the next step in total entertainment immersion, but some people just aren't ready to REALLY watch movies. (Empire)

Karl Urban May Be Sentenced To ‘Judge Dredd’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/karl-urban-may-be-sentenced-to-judge-dredd/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/karl-urban-may-be-sentenced-to-judge-dredd/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Star Trek's Karl Urban is expected to be offered the role of Judge Dredd in Pete Travis's gritty 3D take on the hanging judge. But I think the bigger story is that an actor would want to play Judge Dredd. I'm just playing. If early buzz is correct, Travis's take will wash the taste of Stallone's Dredd out of our mouths for good. And I, for one, am all for getting that zesty comingling of poop and piña colada off my tastebuds. Of course, anything can happen at this point but I think Urban would be a solid choice for the role. I would normally suggest Ron Perlman but science hasn't been able to craft a helmet large enough yet. Maybe someday when technology catches up to imagination. (Bleeding Cool)
