    Alicia Vikander Talks The "Daring" ‘Hotell,’ ‘Ex Machina,’ ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ & More

    Sometimes neophyte actresses come along who fizzle out after a couple of early promising roles. And then there are those who, from practically the first glimpse we get of them, we just know are going to be big, and are going to be around for a while. Alicia Vikander, a no-brainer inclusion on our On...

    '28 Days Later' & 'Dredd' Screenwriter Alex Garland To Make Directorial Debut With Sci-Fi 'Ex Machina'

    While reports of the supposed editing room battles between screenwriter Alex Garland and "Dredd" director Pete Travis made headlines, the pair downplayed those differences, but something must have happened. Whatever it was, Garland will now get to call his own shots, as the "28 Days Later" and "Neve...

    Is The '28 Weeks Later' Sequel Dead? Writer Alex Garland Says There's No Plan For Another Film

    "I'd love to direct another one of it, actually," Danny Boyle said of the possibility of directing a sequel to "28 Weeks Later" nearly two years ago. But within that same week, he also said, "if it's a new idea and it's pretty good, it'll get made whether I direct it or not." And a lot of things hav...

    Watch: New Clip From 'Dredd' Introduces Us To Drug-Filled Housing Project Peach Trees

    One of the more admirable aspects of "Dredd," the 3D sci-fi actioner set to be released at the end of the month (after it hits Midnight Madness at TIFF later this week) is how contained it is. It might be a dystopian extravaganza, but the story takes place in just one building – a huge, derelict hou...

    Alex Garland Says ‘Dredd’ TV Show Would Be Best Follow-Up; Preview All 22 Tracks From Soundtrack Album

    In a few weeks, “Dredd” (in 3D!) will be released in the United States (and even sooner in England). The movie got a rousing response at Comic-Con this summer and this writer politely disagrees with our review out of San Diego. It’s a dark, beautifully photographed (by frequent Lars von Trier and Da...

    Writer Alex Garland & Director Pete Travis Say Everything Is Fine With 'Dredd'

    Just a few days ago, the forthcoming reboot/new vision on "Dredd" became the subject of some ugly advance word. Reports surfaced that director Pete Travis was effectively being locked out of the editing bay, that reshoots were possibly in the works and most surprising of all, that writer Alex Garland ("Sunshine," "28 Days Later") was leading the charge behind the closed doors to get the film put together and was even going to see a co-director credit for his effort. The news was dispiriting for a film that promised fanboys an R-rated gritty take on the hero, but in a statement to 24 Frames released by Garland and Travis, they say everything i...

    'Dredd' Director Pete Travis Locked Out Of Editing Room, Writer-Producer Alex Garland Takes Over

    It's never good news to hear when a director gets locked out of the editing bay, particularly when it comes to a big budget tentpole movie. While rumors of Stephen Sommers battling executives over "G.I. Joe: The Rise Of The Cobra" surfaced and were quickly scuttled, it didn't really matter because the movie made money and has spawned a sequel arriving next summer (though notably, without Sommers this time around). So whether or not this battle will have an effect on the movie creatively or otherwise, it does somewhat poison the well on perceptions of the film for the time being as fanboys will surely voice their concern (even if exact details...
