Re: Dredd - Grade, Review, Discuss, Spoilers

I've bought the blu-ray, but haven't had a chance to watch it yet since I still have Christmas DVDs and blu-rays to plow through.

BTW, has anyone checked out IDW's new Judge Dredd comic series yet? It seems to be set in its own continuity, related but not connected to the original comic continuity and completed unconnected to the continuity of either movie. So far, two issues have been released with a third coming in a few weeks. Issue 1 isn't really anything particularly remarkable, but issue 2 is pretty damn cool which leaves me looking forward to issue 3.

I admit, those particular Judges were pretty useless, but I had no problems with it since not everyone is particularly competant at their job.

I also have the BR copy, but like you not watched it yet for the same reason. Christmas and my own Black Friday watching. Not to mention I'm also watching Stargate SG-1 inter-spliced in these new discs for the first time.

I also have the first two issues from IDW and would agree with your assessment. I'm not well versed outside the 90's crossover with Batman so I'm just taking it as it is since I don't have the original continuity run to compare with.

Looking forward though to watching my copy!! I really enjoyed it in the theater.

And so it begins?


Maybe

I hopefully should have my DVD copy through the post soon.

The only bit that bugs me is the "Wait" bit. If they had left it at that without the follow up line it would have been genuis.

Hmmm - dare we hope that DVD/Bluray sales & rental will be good enough to greenlight a sequel?

Re: Dredd - Grade, Review, Discuss, Spoilers

^^^
Doesn't hurt to wish for that.

I was hoping to read an actual number of just how many units/dollars were moved to place it at #1. Perhaps some commentary on if that figure was better, worse or on par with expectations and/or other similar type films. The best it gave us was that Lionsgate typically does well with releases this time of year and leads. Some comparison might've been nice in order to gauge if wishing for this to help bolster a sequel was likely.

Re: Dredd - Grade, Review, Discuss, Spoilers

Yeah it would be interesting to know. I heard the other day about another film that had done dismally at the box office yet got a sequel because it did so well on the home market. Wish I could remember what it was (It was a terrible film as I recall!)

Re: Dredd - Grade, Review, Discuss, Spoilers

I was pretty surprised to see "Dredd" on the shelves at Target and Wal-Mart already...I don't think the film was even shown in my area. I had intended to see it in the theatre.

I suppose there is precedent, DVD sales of Firefly is basically the reason Serenity got made. Still, I'll be very surprised if Dredd does get a sequel. Of course, this is one time I wouldn't mind being surprised.

Re: Dredd - Grade, Review, Discuss, Spoilers

The first Austin Powers movie did poorly in theatres, but was a hit on video. That's why they did the first sequel (that being a hit being the reason they did another one). So, yeah, there's precedent.

I'm actually considering passing on the German release in favor of a UK or US DVD, because that's where it really counts to the studio.

If initial blu/dvd sales are any indication Dredd should be given a sequel. And well deserved as well. It was a fantastic film.

I hope Dredd's DVD/BD sales are enough to get a sequel, but I'd be content with a TV spinoff in some form (even an animated one).

The first movie didn't perform as well as either of its sequels, but it still made $67 million worldwide against a $16.5 million budget. Dredd, on the other hand, only made $32.7 million, against a budget of $50 million.

I'm actually considering passing on the German release in favor of a UK or US DVD, because that's where it really counts to the studio.
At the box office, domestic (North American) grosses are less and less important to the studios. No idea if that also applies to home video, but I'd wager it was the case.

Still haven't seen this movie, but I might if/when it comes to Netflix instant.
