Taco Bell is getting on the SDCC game with a celebration in collaboration with the 25th Anniversary of the classic Sylvester Stallon film, Demolition Man. In the film, it’s the future and Taco Bell is considered a classy meal, so naturally Taco Bell will be using this chance to promote their nacho fries. The store is open from 6:00pm – 12:00am, July 18th – 22nd.
“When you create a fake trailer for a fake movie for a real product that surpasses all expectations of products (and movie trailers), it seems inevitable that you have to create a sequel,” Marisa Thalberg, Chief Brand Officer of Taco Bell Corp, said in a press release. “And what better way to tease this sequel, than pay homage to a real movie’s 25th anniversary—one that had a very compelling view of a fictional future?”

One of the most inspiring, yet oft-forgotten manga phenomenon of years past, was an inventive series by writer/artist Tsutomu Nihei, known as BLAME! (pronounced blam). The series is a one-of-a-kind exploration thriller in a dystopian world, where an intelligent city has taken control of its own fate, and for thousands of years had already expanded into the cosmos, building itself higher and higher. It’s a lonely story, following the journey of a mysterious man named Killy, on his search for the Net Terminal Gene, in order to take back control of the city.
In order to keep order and peace in the city, it built the Safeguards, in an attempt to extinguish human life within itself. Humans, as they are prone to do, adapted to survive, with small villages finding haven throughout the city, unaware of each other’s existence. It’s an intensely original premise, with fantastic art to anchor it all. With that in mind, was this feature film able to capture the spirit of the original work? Hit the jump to find out.
I suppose it’s just one of those days. Judge Dredd: Mega-City One has just been revealed by Entertainment Weekly, as a live-action television show, just in time for Dredd’s 40th anniversary this year. No other information is available on the show, but attached as executive producers of the new show are IM Global Television president Mark Stern, and the owners of U.K. games developer and publisher, Rebellion, Jason and Chris Kingsley, who also served as executive producers of the 2012 Dredd film.
“This is one of those seminal sci-fi properties that seems to only become and more relevant with age,” IM Global Television president Mark Stern said. “Not only is it a rich world with biting social commentary, but it’s also fun as hell! As a fan of the comics and both films, it’s a dream come true to be able to work with Jason and Chris in adapting this for television.”
“We’re very excited to be beginning the journey to get more of Judge Dredd’s Mega-City One on the television screen,” said Rebellion owners Jason and Chris Kingsley. “Thanks to the legions of fans who have kept up pressure on social media, and a lot of background work and enthusiasm, we aim to make a big budget production that will satisfy both our vast comics audience and the even greater general screen-watching public.”
The first full trailer for Blade Runner 2049 has also hit on a busy news day today. The trailer gives us a lot more to work with as far as plot goes, and we see glimpses of many of the new characters and the larger cast at hand. It’s an action-packed trailer that does a good job of reintroducing us to the cyberpunk world of Blade Runner.
