Karl Urban In Talks To Play Dredd Again

Back in May it was announced that a live action Judge Dredd TV series was in the works titled Judge Dredd: Mega City One. If you missed that story then go ahead and click here to check it out. Not many details were given at the time, not even who would be playing Dredd himself. Well for those of us that loved the 2012 Dredd film there may be some amazing news in store for us very shortly. According to Karl Urban himself, he has been in talks with producers to reprise his role as Judge Dredd in the new Mega City One TV show that is currently in development. After watching the 2012 Dredd movie I honestly can’t picture anyone else in that role.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie SDCC Trailer

All the way back in February we got our first look at the Lego Ninjago movie and it looked decent but I wasn’t completely sold on it. Mainly because I had watched the series with my son and we had already grown attached to those characters and voice actors. Well here we are in July and the NEW San Diego Comic Con Lego Ninjago trailer has been released and it looks awesome! Not only does it look like it has a decent amount of action and cool special effects, but it is going to be hilarious. I already love Dave Franco as LLoyd the green ninja and Jackie Chan as Sensei Wu. Personally I can’t wait to take my son to see it, but mostly I can’t wait to see it myself.

Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling Sneak Peek

The hits just keep on coming at this years San Diego Comic Con. It’s only day one and there has already been some really cool trailer reveals. If you were a kid growing up in the 90s then you will most likely remember a little wallaby that went by the name of Rocko. Rocko’s Modern Life was a cartoon show that was part of the famous Nicktoons TV line up. The series ran for 3 years on Nickelodeon and ended in 1996. Here we are more than 20 years later and Rocko’s Modern Life is making a comeback with a new movie titled Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling. All the original voice actors are here and this sneak peak will definitely take you back to your childhood.  

Pacific Rim 2: UPRISING Official Teaser

So like most of you out there we here at Nerdgasm Needs were not able to make it to Comic Con International this year, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t still enjoy some of it’s perks. For example, we still get to see the first official teaser trailer for Pacific Rim 2: Uprising on the same day it was revealed at Comic Con. In this teaser trailer we get our first look at John Boyega all suited up and ready to pilot his Jaeger who we can only assume to be the new and improved Gypsy Avenger. Not only that, but we also get a good look at the new batch of Jaegers that will be joining the fight for survival against the Kaiju.

Possible Directors found for Mega Man Movie

This is honestly the first that I have even heard about a possible Mega Man movie in the works. Apparently back in 2015 it was announced that 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment would be taking over development on a movie based on the popular video game franchise. Personally I think Mega Man would be better suited for an animated movie series or Netflix show but you know Hollywood…”Where ever there is money to be made” is their motto. Well here we are 2 years later and it looks like we are very close to having both a writer and director for this movie project. However, I am a bit surprised to hear who the front runners are. 

Spider-Man Grabs Coffee

There is no doubt that being a super hero can be hard exhausting work. Like most of us they are occasionally going to need a little bit of a pick me up to get through their day, and Spider-Man is no exception. I mean it only makes sense that he would need a coffee break once in a while, with him trying to balance crime fighting, school, and a social life all at the same time. However, when Spidey goes for coffee he doesn’t just get it like your or me, oh no. Of course he has to do it in a way that only the web head can. Check out this awesome video below of Spider-Man getting coffee at a New York City Starbucks. The people’s reaction are hilarious. 

Marvel’s Black Panther Official Teaser Trailer

Marvel has released their first official teaser trailer for the much anticipated Black Panther stand alone movie. T’Challa, the new ruler of the advanced kingdom of Wakanda, must defend his land from being torn apart by enemies from outside and inside the country. Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, and Lupita Nyong’o, and is Directed by Ryan Coogler. The cinematography looks amazing. This is definitely one beautiful looking movie. The trailer is filled with action, excitement and a bit of mystery. This is most definitely one of the most anticipated super hero movies of the year. 

Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars

All the way back in 1997 the sci-fi cult classic film Starship Troopers was released. 20 years later it looks like we humans are still fighting for survival against the bugs yet somehow Johnny Rico has managed to stay a live this entire time. Now it seems that times are more desperate than ever and even worse their might be someone who has betrayed humanity in this war for existence. Honestly I loved the original but haven’t seen any of the sequels. However, Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars sounds pretty exciting and makes me want to revisit this action packed and brutal universe. The CGI looks pretty good and might be worth a watch.
