Sign the Official Petition for a Dredd Sequel

Jason McDonald

I think it’s safe to say that most of us here at HorrorMovies.ca enjoyed the latest attempt to bring Judge Dredd to the big screen.  It’s a shame the rest of the world didn’t share our enthusiasm though as the film only managed to gross a measly $13 million at the box office.

However, the film found new life on DVD and has since become one of the highest selling DVDs of the year and has found itself a nice little cult following.  All of which has inspired 2000 AD (the publishers behind the Judge Dredd comics) to push Lionsgate to make a sequel to the film.  Rather than going at them through the corporate way though, 2000 AD is taking to the public by using petitions and social media outlets to show that there’s a demand for another Dredd film.  It’s a smart tactic, but it’s hard to say whether or not it’ll pay off.

Remember the TV show “Firefly”? It had an incredibly large fanbase that eventually got a movie adaptation to be made, but despite the fervor of the fans it was still a flop at the box office.  I hope this works out, but I’m not super optimistic anything will come of it.  Still, it doesn’t hurt to try, right?

If you want to sign the Dredd petition, be sure to visit the official Facebook page for the sequel where they’ve managed to gather over 20,000 signatures already.  Considering that they had less than 10,000 this morning, it looks as if they’re on track to rack up quite a few names.

        This totally doesnt need anything else. This movie was great, a sequel will not be needed, thank you.
