Dredd Sequel Day of Action Coming Tomorrow

Dredd_movie-poster-sliceTomorrow fans of the recent DREDD film will be making their voices heard in an attempt to get a sequel greenlit. As a fan of the film I will playing my little part in the campaign…if Firefly fans could do it with Serenity then why not Dredd fans and Dredd 2?

 

Even though I really enjoyed the first film I was left with a feeling that we had only just scratched the surface of Mega City One and with Urban doing a great turn as Dredd I think there’s a lot of scope for future films. It would be cool to see this franchise really take off and hopefully they in years to come they will say it all started with the Day of Action!

Below is all the info you need to take part.

More than 80,000 people have signed the official petition, star star Karl Urban supports it, and now the campaign for a sequel to last year’s DREDD movie is calling for an international Day of Action!

A year on from DREDD’s release, on 18th September fans across the globe are to take part in a massive DREDD SEQUEL DAY OF ACTION. Everyone who has signed the petition is being asked to drive DREDD back up the charts by buying the DVD, Blu-Ray, or iTunes and Netflix download.

Despite critics raving about it and it hitting the top of the UK box office the DREDD film did not perform well in the US, even though it has since gone on to become a massive and consistent hit on DVD, Blu-Ray and download.

Created by two DREDD fans, the campaign has not only been endorsed by 2000 AD but has also shown that there is a large and vocal fan base – with the aim being to grab the attention of those who could potentially fund a sequel.

So far the campaign has succeeded in consistently keeping the DVD and Blu-Ray in the charts both in the UK and America. The DREDD Day of Action aims to prove just how much demand there is for a sequel.

Fans can sign the petition and also pick up the new official campaign T-shirt. The 18th also sees the publication of the first episode of the official sequel comic book in the Judge Dredd Megazine.

September 18th is the DREDD Day of Action – you ready, rookie?
