SANTA MONICA, CA, November 14, 2012 – Adapted by Alex Garland from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra’s legendary comic book and filmed in stunning 3-D, Dredd explodes onto 3-D Blu-ray Disc (includes 3-D and standard version of the film plus Digital Copy and UV), DVD (includes Digital Copy and UV), Digital Download, On Demand and Pay-Per-View January 8 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Mixing pulse-pounding action with mesmerizing visual effects sequences, the post-apocalyptic thriller hailed by audiences and critics alike stars Karl Urban (Star Trek), Olivia Thirlby (Juno) and Lena Headey (HBO’s Game Of Thrones). The hugely anticipated sci-fi thriller directed by Pete Travis (Vantage Point) takes place in a futuristic America.

Known and feared throughout the city, Dredd (Urban) is the ultimate Judge, challenged with ridding the city of its latest scourge, a dangerous drug called “Slo-Mo,” and the sadistic crime boss Ma-Ma (Headey) who is using it to take over the city.

Cover is terribly over-saturated for some reason. But hey, I'm still picking this up.

I'll be getting it on day 1. Too bad there probably won't be any retailer exclusives! I think I'll just get mine from Amazon.

Absolutely incredible film, a shame that it didn't do so well. I'll be picking two copies of this up the first day, one for me and a friend. I recommend this to anyone who missed out on seeing it in the theaters (which is a large number of people

I'm still holding out hope for a sequel with the dark judges, but it will take a miracle in the form of crazy home video sales for that to happen.

There probably wont be a sequel because of how poorly it did at the box office, and thats a damn shame, cause this movie was amazing. This is great news. I AM......THE LAW!

Over-rated.
It was good... not great.
And the worst part is the plot was so generic that the movie becomes entirely forgettable.
marvel72 - 11/16/2012, 7:50 AM
@ fadersdream

overrated too you doesn't make it fact,obviously others got more out of it than you did.
fadersdream - 11/16/2012, 12:59 PM
@marvel72
They must have enjoyed it more.
I doubt they got more out of it, there wasn't that much to get.
Speaking as a 2000 ad Fan the pros and cons of dredd are he's a minimalist character. Instead of learning anything about the world he inhabits or the motivations behind characters you have a film about killing everyone in your way until you reach the top floor.
