!!! Dr. McCoy, Cursed Earth Pizza (Judge Dredd Is Now Just Dredd) !!!

Bones, Are You Really The "Law"?!?

So, here we are a day later and to no one's surprise Lionsgate has released the "Full" trailer for their reboot of Judge Dredd, now simply know as Dredd. Was that so hard? Did I really have to go on a rant yesterday about the "teaser for a trailer" thing? I don't think so, Lionsgate. Guess what guys, your not even in the big leagues yet. Disney, Paramount, Warner Bros., Sony, Universal, and 20th Century Fox are your major leaguers, at best you guys are triple A ball. So, you need to dismount the pretentious horse and just release the gosh darn trailers already.

Ok, I am done with the ranting and we are moving on. We are moving, we are moving, we are moving, and we are stopping. Now, I am really excited about this Judge Dredd (Dredd for short). I'm a fan of the Stallone version (yeah, not the popular opinion) and I am also a fan of the Judge. You put Karl Urban in it, as Judge Dredd no less, and I'm pretty much in a seat opening weekend. Urban is fantastic as Dr. McCoy in the new Star Trek movies and I've been a fan since LOTR where he played Eomer. Not all of the movies he's been in have been good, but he is good in everything he's in. Those New Zealanders are born with it.

This also looks like a more gritty take than the first one. I know, I know, I've been slamming the dark and edgy route for a week now. This, however, is a different situation. Stallone's take had both moments of grittiness and moments of humor. Judge Dredd in the comics was always a dark character and putting him deeper into that world does not fundamentally change the character. It possibly could be the exclusion of Rob Schneider that changes the tone (no, really?) or it could just be a more serious adult take on the material, it still doesn't matter. Dredd is a policeman who has the ability to convict and punish (think execute) criminals on the spot, that's heavy as it is. This looks very interesting and it has me ready to see it. Well, I guess I wasn't done ranting after all, how bout that (not surprised)?

There's more news out there (thank God), so I'll be back with more news and rumors. Stay seated with your hands and arms inside the blog at all times, and, please, no flash photography.
