So it's both ambitious *and* makes compromises?

Sorry, that sounds like a woolly description.

Personally I see it in the same vein as trying to do a low-mid range comic book movie like Dredd and getting compared to Marvel's film costing 3-4 times more.

Sometimes these things cost, and the consumer doesn't care about what the budget is, just the end result.

"You substantially reduce the expenses and find a publisher with enough capital and confidence in your concept."

If it was that straightforward, don't you think Rebellion would have done it?

Dredd's not 300 feet tall, but I still think this is a great cover.

It's not pessimism, it's realism.

I worked on a sandbox GTA clone for 18 months back in the stone-age before the publisher went belly-up and the project folded. It pretty much did for that office of the company.

As Gordon says, they are incredibly expensive because of the amount of content required, and subsequent testing compared to something that's more limited in area.

Even the procedurally generated worlds (and they tend to favour natural landscapes rather than cities) fall short of intent to the extent that there are piss-take videos about it (hello No Man's Sky)

Sure I could see themed DLC for something like Sniper Elite, and I'm a little surprised there's been nothing on that front, but I find it hard to see a Dredd open world game ever happening.

Yes, would be good to see Joelle back after her FCBD Ratfink story.

Daylight robbery. That's about €6-8 more than the a screen at a Dublin IMC.

Yep - there's a Curzon above the HMV in the high street but that's not much cheaper.

Even the Picturehouse in Piccadilly Circus is around the same price.

I guess they want to sell subscriptions/monthly memberships.

anyway... that's why I haven't seen Solo, because the ticket prices are Sohigh.

£16 for a 2D screen at the Odeon in Wimbledon (inc booking fee) to see Jurassic World. £1 extra for premiere seating I think.

Daytime it drops to £14.

£21 inc fee for the same but in IMAX 3D.

It's cheaper over East London, or if I went further south to Sutton, but Odeon is generally very pricey.

I've still not seen it, just not had the urge - not because of any TLJ backlash (didn't love it, didn't particularly hate it, found some moments dumb, some visually spectacular).

Generally cinema is too expensive in London to justify it - £17-20+

I've not seen the past 4 or 5 marvel films either, so for me it's also a bit fantasy/genre fatigue + all the noise around these films, I generally can't be arsed.

There's a stack of Blu-Rays I've bought and yet to watch, let alone get to the cinema.

General / Re: 2000AD fanwork legality?

Even having been involved in two with and one without permission, I wouldn't say there are consistent rules, except for the not for profit thing, being a baseline no-no.

What's OK at one point or for one type of media isn't necessarily going to be the same for another time or another type of media.

Personally, I wouldn't bother, but it's up to you.

Depends what you're after.

The IDW Year One mini series written by Matt are very good.

Same with the Mars Attacks crossover written by Al Ewing - goofy fun.

Other than that, the City of Courts mini-series was interesting but might be an acquired taste - It's Dredd out of MC-1 anyway.

The first run of the ongoing series seemed to cram a lot in, but I've not read it extensively - a lot of people didn't care for that.

The Mega-City Zero/Blessed Earth is more like an alt universe/old man Dredd story. I've not read those either.

Early days on the new one - seems broadly positive though.

They're really their own thing like the DC Dredds were.
