Again...from what i remember.

There's no hope for you Jez.

Like the cover said...AWESOME.
SO want a sequel.

So was he involved in the actual production of the film as well?

My blu-ray should be here in a few days, can't wait :P

I'm not sure how involved he was in production, but he needs to do a Vin Diesel and try to do it himself.

Regardless... Karl Urban is actually pretty fucking ace, isn't he?

Indeed he is. Much like Mark Strong, I will watch him in pretty much anything.

#5. "Slow-Mo" Scenes in Dredd Were Inspired by a Slowed Down Justin Bieber Song

2012's Dredd was a man-trapped-in-a-building action movie that was equal parts science fiction and footage of a dead whale's stomach exploding. A lot of the movie's goriest, most violent moments happen after characters take a drug called Slo-Mo that slows down the user's perception of time and makes his surroundings glimmer with a diamond-like radiance ... and then Dredd busts into the room and kills everyone and we get to see bullets tear people's faces apart in vivid, stomach-turning detail. All the Slo-Mo hyper-violence was set to a beautiful, majestic musical score. If you were floating to heaven, the music from Dredd's Slo-Mo scenes is what you would expect to hear as chubby naked cherubs escort your dead ass into eternity.

It was a brilliant musical choice that offset the ghastly violence, so of course it was inspired by Justin Bieber. Yeah, that bratty Canadian pop star we all try really hard to ignore (news of his shitty escapades is as persistent as an itchy butthole) is indirectly responsible for some of the best shootout scenes in recent memory.

Dredd's composer, Paul Leonard-Morgan, showed an early cut of the movie to his friend and massive Judge Dredd fan Geoff Barrow, an original member of the trip-hop band Portishead. The Slo-Mo scenes reminded Barrow of a cool thing he had seen on the Internet where someone slowed down a Justin Bieber song by 800 percent and the result was an entirely different song that felt ethereal, otherworldly, and much more dramatic. Beautiful, even.

I'm amazed. He actually almost justified his existence.

At the Destination Star Trek event held in in Frankfurt, Germany (hat tip to WhatCulture), Karl Urban was on hand to field questions for his part in J.J. Abrams’ rebooted science fiction franchise. As testament to just how much of a cult film Dredd has already become, one of the first questions posed to him was not about Trek, but about whether there had been any progress on the notion of a Dredd sequel. Urban stopped short of saying that the odds were better or worse than when he last claimed he’d made his enthusiasm to Lionsgate clear, and would rely on fans to make their desires known as well.

However, Urban did explain that “conversations” were taking place – language he hasn’t used in the past – but the actor’s offhand comments surrounding that update are more telling. For starters, Urban said what we’ve been saying since the film first released: that the studio completely fumbled its marketing and theatrical arrival. Urban went on to say that despite an underwhelming box office take that had seemed to kill any chance of a sequel, the DVD sales have continued to impress – and Lionsgate has taken notice.

Indeed, Judge Death, Cursed Earth, there's shitloads they could do.

Was this just not released in enough cinemas or was it that nearly all screening were in 3D that made people not bother seeing it?

Only 3-D around here, I would have gone twice if they'd have shown the normal one, idiots.
