My excitement for the movie surely can't get any higher now!

Yeah, that's what I thought. Yesterday.

Thank's for the reply Alex it mean's alot i suspect not only to me BUT all of us here,i really hope that Dredd pack's a punch at the flicks.

It been a long time coming

loveforstitch - Does he fall in love? I like a little romance in all my movies.

Rekaert - Yes, he demonstrates it with bullets, punches and sentencing.

He's Mega City 1's own Don Juan.

Especially enjoyed what Alex said about budgets, and how $60m would be enough to do a bigger-scale sequel. Really interesting stuff.

Are we to take it that Alex originally wrote the Mama comic prequel, then? And Matt ended up doing it instead?

So much to take in, I'll have to go back and read it all again!

Alex's replys were great, really good to see that he knew and cared for the source material and took on board Wagners thoughts.  Nice one.

Enjoy the premier guys, Ryanair is it Joe? :wave:

Very cool interview.

One question I had, are Dredd and Anderson the only characters from the comics featured in the movie? And why not more characters from the books? For example, if the Chief Judge was say Griffin or something, that would've been the kind of nod that fans love.

Plus, this might be the first comic book movie where the villain isn't from the books.

Still, while the movie does look like it's kind of doing its own thing, I can't wait to see it, looks rock solid.

Actually, the first one would probably be Superman III or something like that. First one in a long time anyway. Not that original villains are necessarily a bad thing, but the apparent lack of characters from the books is one tidbit that I find a little odd.
