WIN 1 of 5 double passes to DREDD in 3D *Competition Closed*

Competition Closed: Thank you to everyone who entered, the winners will be contacted shortly and their prizes will be sent out to them. If you didn’t win keep an eye on the site or our Twitter (@SpaceMeatAU) for future competitions.

Judge Dredd is without a doubt a classic comic book bad-arse. He judges criminals, never shows his face and has an insane gun.

That got me thinking, where he might rank in the all-time list of comic book bad-arsery. So, for your chance to WIN simply tell us: “Who you think the most ‘bad-arse’ comic book character is and why?”

Do that in the comments below or on Twitter directed at @SpaceMeatAU and you could find yourself winning one of five double passes to DREDD in 3D.

Dredd, a futuristic cop combines the power of judge, jury and executioner in Mega City One, a massive city that stretches down the entire East coast of America. The endlessly inventive minds of writer Alex Garland and director Pete Travis bring DREDD (played by Karl Urban) to life in a futuristic neo-noir action film that returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner’s and Carlos Ezquerra’s revered comic strip. In Cinemas October 25.

Entry Conditions & Competition details:
1. Comment on this post or directed at @SpaceMeatAU on Twitter, including who you think the most ‘bad-arse’ comic book character is and why.
2. Twitter entrants must be following @SpaceMeatAU.
3. Blog comment entries must use a valid email address, Twitter account, or have contact notifications activated on their Disqus account.
4. Open to Australian residents only.

Fund This: Beckoning the Butcher

Local Melbournian film-makers Damien E. Lipp and Dale Alexander are working on their début feature, the documentary style horror film, ‘Beckoning the Butcher’.

The film is currently in the funding stage, up now on the crowd funding site Indie Go Go with 10 days to go and is a great opportunity for film and horror fans to support the local scene.

Check out the teaser below and help these young film-makers reach their goal!

 

Chris Shaw was an up and coming internet sensation. In his videos he performed rituals he found on the web, testing their legitimacy in summoning spirits. His last video never got to be broadcast – until now.

Chris films everything as he, his girlfriend Tara and their friends Brent, Lorraine and Nicole travel to Brent’s holiday house nestled in the vast, isolated plains of rural Victoria. Once they arrive they prepare and perform the latest ritual Beckoning the Butcher, a mysterious invocation Chris found online, designed to entice a paranormal entity into this world.

All who took part in the ritual that night went missing without a trace. The only clue for investigators was the found footage contained on Chris’s camera. Unfortunately for all involved, the footage itself seemed to pose more questions than to provide answers.

Using interviews from family members, detectives and psychics, along with Chris’s footage, this film aims to piece together the events of that fateful night and determine how the players vanished.

THE RAID KICKS ITS WAY ONTO DVD, BLU-RAY & DIGITAL AUGUST 15.

Deep in the heart of Jakarta’s slums, there is an unremarkable rundown apartment block that has captured the attention of the police. The building’s innocuous exterior hides a multi-level safe house and a thriving community made up of the world’s most dangerous killers and gangsters. Up until now, the building has been considered untouchable by even the bravest of law enforcement…

Resident Evil 6: Even Evilier Resedition!

OK, it’s not actually called that but a Collector’s Edition of the upcoming 6th (if you don’t count the other 17) game in the Resident Evil franchise has just been announced!

The Resident Evil Collector’s Edition will include the standard retail game housed in a Zombie Steel Book. In addition to this, fans will also be treated to:

  • Exclusive RE6 hardback artbook showing concept art from the game
  • Avatar DLC code for 360 owners OR an exclusive Dynamic Theme for PS3 owners
  • Ivy University, Tall Oaks hooded sweatshirt (one size)
  • The RE6 forces emblems – High quality enamelled zinc alloy emblems of the three main protagonists (Leon, Chris & Jake) squad insignias, mounted and set in a limited numbered frame authenticated with signatures from Senior producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi , Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi and RE6 Director Eiichiro Sasaki
  • All of the above amazing goodies are bundled together in the ‘Needle Bomb’ collectors box (as seen in the RE6 announce trailer) with lenticular images

Will I pick it up? The game definitely, as I was a huge fan of RE5. In fact it’s one of my favourite games on the Xbox 360, mostly due to it’s incredibly intense couch co-op.

Will I pick up the Collector’s Edition? Maybe, the art book, emblems and hoodie are cool but everything else is just filler. So ultimately like most things it will come down to price… which has yet to be announced.

A limited number of the Resident Evil 6: Collector’s Editions will be available for pre-order in Australia through EB Games and JB Hi-Fi.

Kick-arse action flicks are hard to come by these days and even rarer is the true tough-as-nails action star. Luckily we live in a world where Jason Statham still enjoys kicking people in the head.

Thanks to the fine folks at Icon Films Australia, we have TEN double passes to the newest upcoming action extravaganza starring Jason Statham, SAFE.

SAFE – only at the movies May 10

Jason Statham plays Luke Wright, an ex-special forces operative who saves a young Chinese girl. The girl, Mei, is a mathematical genius who has memorised the combination to a safe that contains thirty million dollars. Once word of this gets out, everyone in the criminal underworld – including mobsters, corrupt New York Cops and even Mei’s own family – try to capture her. It’s up to Luke, her only protector, to keep her alive and keep her safe. From the producer of KILL BILL and INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS.

METAL HURLANT CHRONICLES brings the biggest & the baddest “B” stars

METAL HURLANT CHRONICLES is an upcoming action Sci-Fi series based on the METAL HURLANT magazine (also known as HEAVY METAL).

The series trailer looks a lot like the recent sword and sandals gory action series Spartacus: Blood and Sand. While the episode teasers (specifically Red Light) have much more focus on the Sci-Fi elements.

The cast is the most impressive aspect, starring cult action favourites like David Belle (District B13, creator of Parkour), Scott Adkins (Undisputed 1 & 2), and Michael Jai White (Black Dynamite, Spawn).

If you want to take part in future hash tag games be sure to follow @SpaceMeatAU or myself (@LiamJM) and keep an eye out.
