28 Days Later Header

Ex Machina director Alex Garland has very few titles attached to his name, but is considered one of the best screenplay writers in the business. Most of his works are original, but he did work on both 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later, as a screenwriter for the former and an executive producer for the latter. Of course with the kind of following that the 28 films have produced, fans have been wondering when there would be 28 Months Later.

Now Garland kind of has an answer for that. In an interview, the screenwriter confirms that he has a story idea for the sequel, but adds that he won’t direct or produce. More on this below.

Alex Garland's Ex Machina

The full official trailer for Ex Machina has been released online by A24. A teaser trailer for the movie was released back in October and can be viewed right here, though it plays much more like a full trailer than a teaser. This new trailer is only 30 or so seconds longer, but shows plenty of new footage we didn’t see in the teaser.

The movie comes from writer and director Alex Garland, who is making his feature directorial debut. Garland is a writer of many things, such as the movies Sunshine and 28 Days Later for Danny Boyle, Dredd, and Never Let Me Go; video game Enslaved: Odyssey to the West (starring Andy Serkis); and the novel The Beach, which was later adapted into a movie by Boyle. It stars Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens co-stars Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson, and also Alicia Vikander.

You can read a full synopsis and check out the new trailer for Ex Machina below.

Watch Now: Four Clips From The ‘Dredd’ Blu-ray

Dredd 3D - Karl Urban

Released at the tail end of a summer packed with blockbuster comic book movies with massive budgets and expectations, and coming several months after the debut of a much-praised Indonesian action film it was subsequently accused of ripping off, Dredd did not have a chance in hell of making anything other than a faint peep in theaters, even though it was filmed in the ever-popular 3D.

Despite mixed reactions to early stills from the film and tales of post-production battles over the final cut between director Pete Travis and writer Alex Garland Dredd premiered to a rapturous reception at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con and the positive buzz began building. That buzz ultimately failed to translate to ticket sales as the film grossed $6.3 million on its opening weekend to finish in sixth place. The R rating, over-the-top violence, and the toxicity left over from the 1995 attempt at making a Judge Dredd movie with a mostly unmasked Sylvester Stallone in the lead and excruciating comic relief from the never welcome Rob Schneider killed any chance for Dredd to spawn a new franchise fronted by the iconic unsmiling dispenser of ruthless justice.

That is a damn shame because Dredd turned out to be one of the few genuine cinematic surprises of last year, and today it makes its home video debut on 3D Blu-ray and DVD. To mark this momentous occasion we have the amazing 3D Blu-ray cover art as well as four brief but cool clips from the film for your viewing pleasure.

You can check out the cover art and videos here below.

Watch Now: ‘Dredd’ Packs Some Serious Heat In This First Trailer


I hope that mediocre 1995 Judge Dredd movie with Sylvester Stallone hasn’t put off the character forever because the first trailer for Dredd has arrived today. You can watch it here below.

Directed by Pete Travis (Vantage Point) from a script by novelist and screenwriter Alex Garland (Sunshine), Dredd takes us into a grungier Mega City-One straight out of District 9 and pits futuristic lawman Judge Joe Dredd (Karl Urban) and his mind-reading rookie partner Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby) against a gang of cutthroats and scumdogs led by drug baroness Ma-Ma, played by Lena Headey of Game Of Thrones and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

Check Out These New Stills and Poster From ‘Dredd’


It’s about time some promotional materials from the upcoming futuristic action-thriller Dredd started to emerge. Based on one of the U.K.’s most popular comic book characters, Judge Dredd – the iconic policeman of a post-apocalyptic world who doles out justice via the barrel of a gun – was last given the big screen treatment back in 1995 with Sylvester Stallone in the role. But the movie was a resounding and costly flop that rankled fans of the character and fans of decent action flicks alike. Myself, I happen to enjoy it only as long as I can pretend that Rob Schneider’s annoying comedy sidekick is not really there.

This year the good judge is getting a gritty reboot with Karl Urban (Star Trek) donning the helmet of Mega City One’s greatest badass lawman and Pete Travis (Vantage Point) directing the movie from a screenplay by Alex Garland (28 Days Later). Now we have the first poster for Dredd as well as a pair of visually striking images from the film for your perusal.

You can check them out here below.
