We’ve got some more info on the “bootleg” Dredd spin-off web series, and it turns out to be not quite what you were expecting. Producer Adi Shankar helped make Dredd, and he has also been behind the creation of a couple unofficial short films featuring Marvel comics characters such as the Punisher and Venom. So the concept of Shankar backing an unofficial Dredd spin-off series featuring the diabolical Dark Judges (a small group which counts heavy hitters such as Death and Fear as members) it was easy to assume we’d see a certain sort of web series.
In fact, the Dredd spin-off featuring the Dark Judges is called Superfiend, and it is animated. The series premieres later this month, but we have a poster and the first images below.
Update: A brief trailer has also been released, which you can see below.

The back and forth surrounding a new Pee-Wee Herman movie feels like an elaborate prank Pee-Wee himself would be proud of. We hear it’s coming, we hear they’re close, star Paul Reubens comments, producer Judd Apatow comments, but we still don’t have anything concrete. That could change soon. Reubens is promoting the new release of Pee-Wee’s Playhouse on Blu-ray and said that news on a new Pee Wee Movie is “very imminent.” Read his full quote below. Read More »
Today is October 21, 2014. In exactly one year, we’ll have Hoverboards, flying cars, Jaws 19 and a Cubs World Series victory. At least, that’s what Robert Zemeckis’ Back to the Future Part II surmised. And while it’s going to end up being totally wrong about all of it, it’s a date everyone is looking forward to.
2015 also marks the 30th anniversary of the first Back to the Future film, released on July 3, 1985. Much like we saw with Ghostbusters this year, plenty of celebrations are expected for the milestone from merchandise and screenings to documentaries and more. One new addition to the list is the announcement of special 30th anniversary screenings that’ll play at concert venues all over the world. There, the soundtrack of the film will be edited out so a full orchestra can perform Alan Silvestri‘s iconic score live. Even better? Silvestri is writing 15 minutes of new score for the performances. Read More »
John Carter wasn’t the franchise-launching film that Disney hoped for, and now we know for certain that it will be Disney’s only effort to exploit the Mars-set stories of Edgar Rice Burroughs. The studio no longer has the rights to the John Carter character, as that package has been regained by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., the publishing company created by the author in 1923. With the John Carter rights back in hand, the company hopes to get the character out to a new studio for more films. Read More »

Last night the news broke that New Line had pushed The Conjuring 2 out of 2015 and into an un-dated 2016 release window. We wondered if that had anything to do with the success of Annabelle, and if New Line might be thinking of making more spin-off movies based on the Warren case files, instead of doing a proper sequel. Turns out we were totally wrong — the delay is so that New Line could accommodate the Conjuring 2 director: a returning James Wan. Read More »
