    Karl Urban Says If Another ‘Judge Dredd’ Happens It Would Be A Prequel

    Since the character's debut in 1977, Judge Dredd has become one of the most popular comic book characters in the UK. Unfortunately, U.S. fans never took quite as adamantly to the Street Judge from Mega-City One. Whether the totalitarian state depicted in the comics alienated American readers, or if ...

    Karl Urban Says "Conversations" Are Happening For 'Dredd' Sequel After Strong DVD Sales

    The last word we heard on the prospect of a "Dredd" sequel came last spring, when producer Adi Shankar said "probably not" when asked about a followup. It's hard to fault the logic, considering the franchise reboot earned a measly $35 million worldwide on a budget of $50 million, and the helmeted he...

    'Almost Human': How J.J. Abrams' Latest TV Drama Plays Like the TV Spinoff of a Sci-Fi Blockbuster That Doesn't Exist

    It seems like every week another frustrated filmmaker declares the death of the studio film, or at least a significant chunk of it that doesn't involve superheroes, and insists television is now where it's at, citing "Breaking Bad" or "Homeland" as examples of superior small screen storytelling.

    Watch: Trailer For J.J. Abrams-Produced "Ro-Bromance" Series 'Almost Human' Starring Karl Urban

    Named as one of our 10 Most Promising Network Shows For Fall 2013, we have to admit a certain curiosity about the J.J. Abrams-produced "Almost Human" based on the premise alone. That, and it has the potential to give us a weekly serving of Karl Urban in full on snark mode, which we wouldn't complain...

    Review: 'Riddick' Starring Vin Diesel, Katee Sackhoff, And Karl Urban

    "Pitch Black," released by Universal in 2000 to little fanfare, was a small-scale genre movie that took almost everyone who saw it by surprise. It featured a nifty conceit (space travelers are marooned on a hostile alien world inhabited by nocturnal predators days before a lengthy solar eclipse) and...

    Rumor: 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' Helmer Jon M. Chu Contender To Direct 'Star Trek 3'; Kurtzman/Orci Will Write The Film

    A couple of weeks back an offhand comment by Zachary Quinto set nerds into a lather as it was suggested that J.J. Abrams—tasked with helming "Star Wars: Episode 7"—was somehow going to find time to direct "Star Trek 3" in time for a 2016 release. Keep dreaming, we said. And it would appear that our ...

    Review: 'Star Trek Into Darkness' Often Thrills, But Undone By An Underwritten Villain & Thin Story

    Cast your mind back four years or so, to stardate early May 2009, and remember a time when J.J Abrams wasn't yet the anointed savior of Hollywood. He had an ever-growing fanbase, and had already been behind at least one bona-fide small screen pop culture phenomenon. But his influence on the big-scre...

    Watch: The Prime Directive Comes Into Play In First Clip From 'Star Trek Into Darkness'

    Ooh, looks like "Star Trek Into Darkness" is getting into some ethical and moral quandaries with the sequel, as the first clip from the movie features J.J. Abrams' never still camera, some distractingly skin tight suits, sweat and oh yeah, Spock's life in crucial danger. Trapped down on an alien pla...
