Dredd 3D takes us to the wild streets of Mega City One, the lone oasis of quasi-civilization on Cursed Earth. Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) is the most feared of elite Street Judges, with the power to enforce the law, sentence offenders and execute them on the spot - if necessary. The endlessly inventive mind of writer Alex Garland and the frenetic vision of director Peter Travis bring Dredd to life as a futuristic neo-noir action film that returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra's revered comic strip.
While Dredd 3D fans fruitlessly petition for a sequel, and star Karl Urban continues to champion the idea, producer Adi Shankar has taken it upon himself to give fans what they want. He's created an 'unofficial' spinoff in the form of a new animated web series title Judge Dredd: Superfiend. And EW has our first look with the poster and four images.
It has been two years since Dredd 3D hit theaters, and while it wasn't a smash hit at the box office, it has spent the past 24 months accumulating a very strong fanbase. While no sequel has been officially green lit at this time, Adi Shankar is delving deeper into the mythology of 2000 AD, the British comic that spawned it.Read More
While fans still hold on to hope that a sequel to Dredd 3D will happen some day, producer Adi Shankar is giving fans a spinoff miniseries that will debut online for free later this month.
The seven-part mini-series will center on the Dark Judges from the original 2000AD comic books, characters which Dredd 3D writer Alex Garland previously revealed would be the focus of a movie sequel, if it were to ever happen. The Dark Judges include Judge Death, Judge Fire, Judge Fear and Judge Mortis, who frequently clashed with Dredd and Cassandra Anderson in the comic book.Read More
In the original Judge Dredd comics, Fargo was the first Chief Judge Dredd was cloned from. Fargo was never seen again after it was revealed that Dredd was his cloned. Max von Sydow portrayed Fargo in the 1995 Judge Dredd adaptation that starred Sylvester Stallone as the title character.
If the film does turn out to be a prequel, it seems unlikely that Olivia Thirlby's character, Cassandra Anderson, will be featured, since she was a rookie who met her boss Dredd for the first time in Dredd 3D.Read More
When it was released back in 2012, Dredd 3D did not have a great showing at the box office, taking in an abysmal $13.4 million domestically and $22.2 million in international markets for a worldwide total of $35.6 million. Despite these numbers, the comic book adaptation starring Karl Urban as Judge Dredd was well-received by critics and fans alike, many of whom have been clamoring for a sequel. During a recent press conference in Germany, Karl Urban revealed that a follow-up may actually happen.
The actor said that "conversations" are currently ongoing between Lionsgate and screenwriter Alex Garland. While he agreed that the box office performance was poor, he added that the studio has taken note that the movie has found an audience on Blu-ray and DVD.Read More
While attending Comic-Con 2013 last week, Dredd 3D star Karl Urban revealed that a sequel is still possible, urging fans to let their voices be heard. Dredd comic book publisher 2000AD has stepped forward to create an online petition for the fans to sign, along with a Facebook page dedicated to the potential follow-up.
Although it was critically praised, Dredd 3D flopped, taking in just $13.4 million at the domestic box office and just over $36 million worldwide. Karl Urban starred as the title character, one of the many judges who lay down the law in the massive Mega City One, alongside his rookie partner Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby).Read More

He continued, revealing what Alex has in mind for a follow-up."I think Alex Garland has a trilogy in his mind. I think there is a whole exciting journey in front of Dredd if Alex and Karl Urban get to take him on that journey. The future is really exciting for him. Especially in terms of going with some of the other characters from the comic book. Finding out more about where Dredd comes from. I also think its exciting, the possibilities.
