Seems Lionsgate are very happy with Dredd's performance in the DVD/Blu-ray/Download market. We can but hope...

Calling something the best selling Blu-Ray of the year only a few weeks into the year isn't saying much, is it?

Still, I bought it and did my part. Fingers crossed that it's enough for more.

Re: Dredd - Grade, Review, Discuss, Spoilers

As great as Dredd's success on DVD/Blu-ray/Netflix/whatever is, I'm still not too confident we'll get a sequel. Even if we do, isn't there a better chance it'll be straight to home video without a theatrical release? Not only could that hurt the budget, it's possible they may not even get Karl Urban back which would be a great tragedy, IMO.

I don't know, maybe I'm just unnecessarily cynical. I do hope it gets a theatrical sequel, I'm just not holding my breath.

Re: Dredd - Grade, Review, Discuss, Spoilers

Well there's still the possibility of doing a slightly lower budget sequel set in the Cursed Earth, and you could still top/tail it in Mega City 1...and maybe the last shot of the film could see some guy in a city block dying as a skeletal hand enters his chest whilst off screen we hear a voice. "the crime is life...the sentence is death..."

Ok I'm dreaming I know, but still...If they could make a sequel for the same or less money it would be bound to do better at the box office given the positive vibe the film's now getting on DVD etc (you would hope). The question is would any improvement be enough for a third film?

All very hypothetical I know...

I caught this with my girlfriend earlier, and we both really enjoyed it! I'm looking forward to getting the movie in bluray (as soon as I get a player).

RE: sequel.

Never give up hope. They're making another Riddick movie after the last one bombed. All things are possible.

Yeah, that's the ticket... pare it down... set it, say, all in one building!

Just wondering if it would really be that bad if replaced Urban? May do it just for budgetary reasons. Underwhelmed by this one, but Thirlby made impressive debut and would be interested to see sequel with broader scope.

In the Judge system, the people are represented by two separate, yet equally important groups: The Judges, who enforce the law, and...actually, never mind, it's only one group. These are its stories.

DOINK-DOINK!
