Dredd is one of those films that everyone loves but nobody turned out to see in the theatres. Well, now you can do your part. You can sign up to the official 2000AD Dredd Sequel petition.
Dredd has consistently been tracking well on the DVD market. It also did well overseas. Part of the film’s failure could be attributed to the fact that Dredd has very little mainstream credibility stateside. Additionally, the Stallone vehicle was awful and people still remember it. Finally, the film’s marketing was not good. Those three variables spelled disaster for the Karl Urban vehicle.
Thanks to the internet and a fervent fan base the film appears to be gaining traction towards a sequel. Both Alex Garland and Karl Urban have gone on record saying that they’d love to reprise their roles as writer/producer and lead actor.
In the mean time, feast your eyes on quite possibly the best Judge Dredd fan film ever created.
Share and Enjoy
