Sam Worthington needs to stay the fuck away from Rouge.Jeremy Renner would be a better choice,he has weird eyes that would look cool with white lenses.

Any of you Southerners going to see Urban and the Dredd panel at London comic con thingy?


To paraphrase Carrie Fisher; isn't Renner a little short for a genetically engineered trooper?


Comic conventions give me the fear, but that event should be good for some Dredd news; so I'll be keeping an eye on 2000ad's Twitter feed next weekend. According to the promo stuff, there's some kind of presentation on Dredd (2012), so that might feature some new footage.

As a healthy Jack Russellesque 5/5 myself,I think he's tall enough .
My point was really anyone but Sam Worthington,and Renner can act,first name that popped into my head,that and my copy of Empire is sat about two feet away with his mug on the front cover

Grant Morrison's reportedly working on a Rogue Trooper treatment for Sam Worthington, and a film called Aliens vs Dinosaurs for Barry Sonnenfeld.

You'd think they'd have learned their lesson after Cowboys and Aliens.


Don't want to stir up the whole Cowboys V Aliens thing again, but I still think that title suggested a fun Butch & Sundance V Aliens mash-up when what we got was a dour The Wild Bunch V Aliens pastiche. And much as I love Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford (I bet James Blond still can't believe he took top billing over Indiana Jones!) I think they were both far too dour to play off each other. The whole thing was like a scowlathon. Original choice, Robert Downey Jr, would have provided a better casting contrast with Ford.

And for the second time in a row The Great Sam Rockwell was a criminally wasted presence in a Jon Favreau movie. Still, it was "nice" (if surprising) to see characters smoking in a period movie again. I was watching Captain America again recently and something was bugging me but I couldn't quite put my finger on it. Then it struck me - as well being the only racially integrated Allied unit in WWII, The Howling Commandos musta been the only soldiers who didn't smoke!

(I'd still like to see a Predator movie or Matrix spin-off set in the wild west. Oh well, at least Doctor Who'll be heading west soon - Once Upon a Time Lord in the West? Blazing Saddos? Bitch Cassidy & The Song And Dance Kid...?)

Morrison's heavily into chaos magic, and once encouraged readers of his magnum opus, The Invisibles, to participate in a simultaneous wank to save the comic from cancellation. The (Reichian) idea was that the orgone energy released by so many folk concentrating their thoughts on the title would empower a magic sigil Morrison had devised for the purpose- and sales of the book took off immediately.

Of course, one of Morrison's earliest successes, Zenith, featured a Tory MP who used his supernatural powers to bump off rivals and influence key events... if you hear news of Dave Cameron, Nick Clegg, Theresa May and Gideon Osbourne leading the cabinet in a high level circle jerk, you can rest assured that the economy will turn around in a fortnight. You'll know where the idea came from, and why a Scottish lefty earned an MBE.

Morrison always said that Peter "Mandela" St John was based on Robert Kilroy Silk, but I always kinda thought of him as SuperHestletine. (Also loved his sly insinuation: scratch a hippy, find a Tory. Once a punk, eh...?)

EDIT: Didn't Morrison have St John give Labour Leader John Smith a fatal heart attack not long before it actually happened? It was certainly implied that St John was responsible. Spooky or what? Maybe there's something in Morrison's mystical bollocks after all.

PS: Brenda can't be all that familiar with Big Dave then. Or maybe she is!

PPS: If I wanted to watch Grant Morrison having a wank I'd read his run on New X-Men!

Yeah, it seems to confirm my suspicion that initial fanboy complaints that Mega-City One wasn't dense and claustrophobic enough were premature to say the least - the relatively few cityblocks merely standing out from the vast urban sprawl below. Talk about putting the "jerk" in kneejerk!

Aye; the striking disparity between the different buildings in the new film's architecture really emphasises the size of those mega blocks- look at the size of those people standing on the ledge (far left). http://www.liveroleplay.com/tmp/vista.jpg

Stallone's version of the city's skyline was certainly densely packed, but it all sort of blended into an undifferentiated copper-toned mass. Like the film itself, they just tried to pack too much in:

The new city scape is pretty nice looking, but then that music video makes the Stallone version look pretty good

Initial fanboy complaints concerning this film have been completely premature. Most of those still complaining about pads and hover cars have more in common with that other species who think the Stallone film is "awesome".


Does anyone actually think what one critic called "the pinball version of Blade Runner" is "awesome"? Even Demolition Man was better - at least that was vaguely satirical. Although it did have Stallone running/bellowing away from an explosion (in slo-mo - natch!) then - SHAZAM! - magically appearing back on the street with precisely no explanation as how he got there. Not once but twice!

With one narrative leap he was free...?

Trust me, Chris; for the last fortnight, all I've done is argue with guys who think the Stallone film "rocked", who insist he looked cool wearing that tights and codpiece combo, and who are outraged that anyone would dream of "remaking" a film that seems to have played an important part in their imaginitive and emotional development.

I'm actually so fucking bored talking about the '95 film, I don't hate it anymore.

Blimey.

(Not anyone familiar with Dredd's comic origins, I expect. Were they Americans by any chance? Or just drooling/knuckle-dragging Stallone fans who think Rocky can do no wrong?)

Show I'm going to in London on Saturday has announced that Karl Urban will be attending and you can get a photo and autograph with him.

Also sounds like he is doing a talk panel about Dredd as well. Can't wait!!!

If this is a hit, I'm still hoping that someone has the balls to make a Strontium Dog movie.

or Rogue Trooper
or
Flesh ( imagine an 18 Jurassic Park )


Strontium Dog? A futuristic spaghetti western? I'd buy that for a dollar!

Rogue Trooper would make a great film. Was there not talk of a movie before the first Dredd flick even? (I almost typed Rouge Trooper there which would be a different proposition entirely - "Hell-o, Gunnar!")

Flesh - The Movie? Cowboys V Dinosaurs? I'm amazed someone hasn't made this one already!

Yeah, be nice if Dredd spawned a 2000AD "movie universe." But first things first. Dredd has to be a hit. Being good too would be a bonus.





I'd love to see a Nemesis the Warlock and ABC Warriors film/s. I love those characters. I think ABC Warriors would make a great computer animated film.

Dredd was in post-production at the time cameras started turning on The Raid . The affable and talented Gareth Evans also went on to re- tweet this:



Gareth Evans ‏@ghuwevans
this :) “@Greygor: @ghuwevans To be fair Dredd started filming 4 or 5 months before The Raid. Not, as you say, that it matters”


and

Gareth Evans ‏@ghuwevans
Regardless, Urban looks kickass and I love the scale of it and the beauty of that muzzle flash burst. Can’t wait to see it!

Why do you keep highlighting words?

And not everything screens at Comic Con - but there is usually a friendly geek property that gets in there - District 9 and Scott Pilgrim both got their first public screenings there. So we will be getting reviews in a couple of weeks.
