Karl Urban Talks PRIEST, DREDD, the STAR TREK Sequel, Karaoke, More

Karl Urban interview STAR TREK 2, DREDD, THE HOBBIT, Karaoke slice

With director Scott Stewart’s Priest opening this weekend, I was recently able to interview the cast and after the jump is my full conversation with Karl Urban (I posted part of it last week).  During the interview we talked about his reaction to the finished film, how Stewart pitched him on the project, what was it like to film the action sequences, how did his character change once he got involved, what’s his karaoke song, when does he start filming the Star Trek sequel, how did Pete Travis’ Dredd turn out, and will he visit the set of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit while they’re filming.

    Karl Urban must say the following lines in Dredd:

    “I am the law!”

    “I knew you’d say that.” (in five scenes)

    “I knew they’d do that.”

    “Full auto. Rapid-fire.”

    “Armour piercing”

    “Double whammy.”

    “Signal flare!”

    I look forward to seeing the following villains in future sequels:
    Angel Gang, Mean Machine Angel, President Booth, Oola Blint, Judge Cal, Dark Judges, Judge Death, Rico Dredd, Armon Gill, Judge Grice, Morton Judd, Kleggs, Judge Kraken, Stan Lee, PJ Maybe, Nero Narcos, Sov Judge Orlok, Shojun the Warlord, Judge Sinfield

    I hope in this film series, they will include the following Judges:

    Beeny, Buell, Galen DeMarco, Dirty Frank, Edgar, Chief Judge Fargo, Francisco, Giant, Goodman, Griffin, Hershey, Janus, Karyn, McGruder, Mechanismo, Niles, Rico, Shenker, Silver, Solomon, Volt

    I hope in this film series, they will include:
    Chopper, Vienna Dredd, Fergee, Yassa Povey, Jacob Sardini, Otto Sump, Walter the Wobot

    I hope one of the following recognisable actors with comedic experience plays Fergee:

    Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, Ricky Gervais, Simon Pegg, Eddie Izzard, Steve Coogan, Jeremy Piven, Paul Rudd

    As Judge Dredd, Karl Urban should be a hardcore badass like Liam Neeson in Taken.

    J.J. Abrams, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman need to surpass Star Trek (2009) and rectify the mistakes that they made because as much as it was a tremendous film, I was still privately disappointed because it could have easily have been so much better. The Orion Syndicate as the villains, larger all-star cast as well as many cameos including by William Shatner and Lady Gaga, larger space battles with more starships, bringing back and give more screentime to Chris Hemsworth, Jennifer Morrison, Rachel Nichols, Winona Ryder and Diora Baird, Kirk having better fighting skills and several human love interests played by Hollywood’s most beautiful young actresses, no cut scenes and the Jerry Goldsmith theme music from the Star Trek Insurrection end credits as well as the album version of ‘Where My Heart Will Take Me’ used at the end.

      This has to be one of the dumbest posts I’ve read anywhere regarding JJ’s follow-up to STAR TREK (2009). Giving more screen time to people who were killed off in the first film? Kirk having multiple love interests in the same film? And you can’t even get the name right for the song you want featured in the film’s closing credits!

    “Will you visit NZ while they’re filming the Hobbit just to say hi”???!!!! What kind of question is that?

    Will you be visiting America when they film the lastest version of ‘Reporters who don’t do their background research’? Oh that’s right you’re ALREADY LIVING THERE!

    Annoyed because it seems like you had three questions to ask of the Genie and you wasted one.

    I really enjoyed Star Trek never really being a fan of the series being in my mid 20′s, not that I didn’t enjoy sci-fi but I was always a SW fan. But went to see ST and loved it and look forward to anymore films for the series with a cast involving the same actors.

    Priest was entertainable, they may have tried too hard with the 3D aspect, but good story even though it seemed like they cut a lot out to save time/money.. who knows. If they aren’t going to make a sequel… then it was 1 of the worst endings to a movie I have ever seen.

    Another Judge Dredd movie? Awesome. I want to see it I do not care who is in it!
