This is the week that officially killed all of those sequels the internet has been demanding. With Hellboy 3 officially thrown to the wayside in favor of an R-rated reboot, it only makes sense that the Dredd sequel is also looking officially dead and buried. However, fans of the character may take comfort in knowing that the hard-ass future cop with that face-obscuring helmet and a thirst for justice/violence is only abandoning the big screen because he’s heading to the small screen.
Yes, a Judge Dredd live-action TV show is in the works.

For any sci-fi fan, it would be a dream come true to find a place where the characters from all your favorite sci-fi movies and TV shows existed in the same world. But unless we figure out how to travel to a parallel dimension where all those character that have been imagined over the years are real, we’ll have to settle for this new print from the Hero Complex Gallery show Sci-Scapes.
Artists Josan Gonzalez and Laurie Greasley created this insanely detailed piece of work that feels like a sci-fi version of Where’s Waldo. But rather than looking for the bespectacled, red and white striped sweater wearing explorer, you can just look at any part of this image and find someone or something from RoboCop, Total Recall, Akira, Alien, Stranger Things, Blade Runner, Predator and much more.

Since we’re unlikely to get a sequel to the 2012 sci-fi comic adaptation Dredd starring Karl Urban, we’ll have to take solace in a new Dark Horse Comics title featuring the one-man judge, jury and executioner. In a new four-issue series, we’ll see Judge Dredd crossing over with two of the biggest sci-fi franchises that he’s encountered before.
Predator vs. Judge Dredd vs. Aliens will see Judge Dredd pitted against the tactical, nearly unbeatable Predators, as they both try to survive an onslaught by the galaxy’s ultimate killing machines, the xenomorphs from the Alien franchise. For those who don’t know, this isn’t the first time Judge Dredd has met either of these creatures. Find out more about Predator vs Judge Dredd vs Aliens after the jump. Read More »

If Dredd‘s tragically weak box office performance didn’t squash all hopes of a sequel, Adi Shankar‘s recent comments should have. The producer bluntly stated that the sci-fi pic would “probably not” get a follow up because it “totally bombed.” Considering that the film made grossed just $35 million worldwide on a $50 million budget, it was tough to argue with his reasoning.
But now that Dredd has found a little more success on home video, star Karl Urban seems to be feeling much more optimistic. According to him, a Dredd sequel is “not off the agenda” — but it’ll only happen if the fans fight for it. Hit the jump to read his comments.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
ThinkGeek is selling an awesome t-shirt featuring various weapons from 10 famous science fiction films of the last 74 years. Can you name all the movies?
Museum Acquires Rare Arms Collection: To your right you’ll see our display of 20th and early 21st century science-fiction armaments. You can compare the variety of size and lethality over the years. Everyone “oohs” over the pulse rifle. Don’t get too close, though. The gun cabinet glass is coated with self-arming nanites. We don’t want to have to mop up another tourgroup.And ahead on your left, you’ll see models of some early time travel vehicles, including H.G. Wells’s time machine…. This shirt contains images of 10 famous science fiction arms and the year of their screen debut on a black 100% cotton shirt.
But apparently ThinkGeek messed up and the art has the wrong date for Logan’s Run (it says 1967, it should be 1976) so they are selling the shirt at 50% off. Grab one for only $7.99 to $9.99 plus shipping depending on size. So if you don’t mind the small error on an otherwise really cool tee, grab one now. Hit the jump to see a bigger image of the artwork.
