DREDD (3D) sequel!

One of the best... if not the best comic-book-based film of 2012 (forget Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises) really needs to get a sequel.

Even Karl Urban thinks so:

Let's support it:

here is how, write IM Global (the production firm behind the first film): http://www.imglobalfilm.com/contact

If you haven't seen DREDD go, do it! One of those films you won't forget!
Awesome atmosphere, dense cinematography, awesome set design, superb music.
It is dirty, it is intense, it is not you average CB movie.

Re: DREDD (3D) sequel!

Is there anywhere where I can petition for the sequel not to be 3D?

Re: DREDD (3D) sequel!

I thoroughly enjoyed it, but the chances of a sequel are pretty much zero given the box office.

Re: DREDD (3D) sequel!

Well that thread title is extremely misleading and enormously disappointing! Not cool.


Anyway, while I would LOVE a sequel to Dredd, I think the *only* thing that'll convince the studio to go for it would be the promise of lots of money which the first film sadly failed to generate. Realistically I think the best we can hope for is a *very* low budget straight-to-DVD film. Which would be a shame since the first film was supposed to be the low budget one.

Loved Dredd and would dearly love to see a sequel. It does seem unlikely though.

Just rewatching Dredd now. I'd love a sequel, but I don't think there's the slightest chance

Re: DREDD (3D) sequel!

Well... considering Urban's interest, and the popularitiy of the film... never say never. I provided the link to contact IM Global. Write them how you enjoyed the first film. Anything is possible.

One of the few films where 3D actually works.

The Slo-Mo sequences were both awesome, cruel and yet very artistic and almost beautiful.

If Urban and the director are both ready to go... let's show our support!

Re: DREDD (3D) sequel!

I'm surprised at the popularity of Dredd on this board. The film was a mess and, although I do see potential for a sequel, the film really doesn't deserve it.

Re: DREDD (3D) sequel!

I saw this over at Screenrant.com yesterday.

While I would love for it to happen, I bought the BluRay week of release as a show of support, I highly, highly doubt it will happen.

I thought the film was a tight little "one issue of the comic" brought to life. They kept it simple and it worked.

Much better than any other comic book based films like Thor, Captain America or Green Lantern.

In essence DREDD and SIN CITY are the perfect transitions from comic book to movie.

Re: DREDD (3D) sequel!

Not sure if I would compare Dredd with Captain America. Apples and oranges and all that. Thor...again, not really comparable but I did enjoy Dredd much more. Never saw GL as the trailers didn't look promising and unless something very drastic happens, I probably never will. So I can't comment there.

As much as I did like Sin City, it's very much it's own creature. Dredd isn't anywhere near as stylistically encumbered by the source material and works as a thing unto itself. Indeed, on those terms I'd put Dredd on par with Captain America.

Actually the comic book movie that Dredd most reminded me of (for better or worse) was the Thomas Jane Punisher movie. Yeah, I know it wasn't as good (though I do have a soft spot) but just like Dredd, it managed to be both faithful to the tone and themes of the source material--especially where the main character was concerned--AND it worked quite well as a film in it's own right. Not just as "a comic book movie".
I suppose the original Blade movie falls into that category too, but I'm not sure it's aged quite as well.
