2000AD Launch An Official Petition For A DREDD Sequel

Dredd was loved by critics and fans alike, but it sadly failed to find a wide enough audience to be deemed a box office hit. However, strong DVD and Blu-ray sales and the enthusiasm from Karl Urban to reprise the role has kept sequel talk alive, and now 2000AD have launched an OFFICIAL petition.

I loved Dredd. Before seeing the movie, I hadn't read a single comic book featuring the character, but it had all the right ingredients (despite some unfortunate coincidental similarities to The Raid) of a truly great comic book movie. That's why the fact that it more than likely won't get a sequel is so damn heartbreaking. Well, publisher 2000AD has now launched an official petition, and while that doesn't necessarily mean Hollywood will listen, be sure to sign it in order to at least let them know that the demand IS there. Simply click on the image below to sign the petition.








During a routine day on the job, Dredd is assigned to train and evaluate Cassandra Anderson, a rookie with powerful psychic abilities thanks to a genetic mutation. A heinous crime calls them to a neighborhood where fellow Judges rarely dare to venture- a 200 story vertical slum controlled by prostitute turned drug lord Ma-Ma and her ruthless clan. When they capture one of the clan's inner circle, Ma-Ma overtakes the compound's control center and wages a dirty, vicious war against the Judges that proves she will stop at nothing to protect her empire. With the body count climbing and no way out, Dredd and Anderson must confront the odds and engage in the relentless battle for their survival.


STARRING:

Karl Urban as Judge Dredd
Olivia Thirlby as Judge Anderson
Lena Headey as Madeline Madrigal
Domhnall Gleeson as Travis Synders
Langley Kirkwood as Judge Lex
Francis Chouler as Judge Guthrie
Deobia Oparei as Judge T.J. Alvarez

There was only one thing shit about this movie & that was the marketing (complete lack of!). Loved the film.

Love this movie.
ekrolo2 - 7/24/2013, 2:05 PM
Movie was badass, of course Ill say this bad boy!
Godzillafart - 7/24/2013, 2:05 PM
It could have been good if they had pushed the social commentary further...but Dredd is a pretty flat character.
bayouboyz - 7/24/2013, 2:05 PM
I signed it. This is one of the few films were I bought the Blu Ray without see the film first, and I don't regret it one bit.
BlackFlash - 7/24/2013, 2:05 PM
Haha just came on here to see the latest news while I start to watch DREDD and see this, make it happen.
Godzillafart - 7/24/2013, 2:06 PM
So, yeah. Won't be signing.

I thought this quote summed up the film: "Every so often there's a suggestion that a police state may actually be a lousy idea, but this thought dies even faster than the disposable characters." - Manohla Dargis

Signed and shared
Nubase - 7/24/2013, 2:11 PM
the sequal has to happen, theres so much out there in the world of dredd

orpheus - 7/24/2013, 2:14 PM
The movie was terribly bland and forgettable, stopped watching about 3/4 the way through. The premise had potential along with Dredd's dystopian world, but the execution was like a million other action films.
Dmon - 7/24/2013, 2:17 PM
Signed it the other day
KeefNCookies - 7/24/2013, 2:22 PM
I'd sign it... but I dont mess with Fakebook.
JacksonVegaIII - 7/24/2013, 2:26 PM
Altho it was by no means perfect it was probably the best CBM of last year, made The Avengers look middle of the road and kiddy and made The Dark Knight Rises look plodding and a bit worthy. A sequel would be excellent, an entire 2000AD Movie Universe would be a dream come true. Such a rich and perverse world, us folks who like our CBMs ultra violent, Adult orientated, visually stunning and intelligent deserve it

SIGN THE MOTHERFU.CKING PETITION !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
marvel72 - 7/24/2013, 2:26 PM

@godzilla, i thought the movie was lousy but i still signed it. Its a cbm and it could use support. Obviously you have nothing better to do at the moment since you commented four times.

Signed it. Great film I want more. Ma ma aka Lena Headey and Karl Urban are great in Dredd.
Nivekian - 7/24/2013, 2:29 PM
Any idea if they need a certain number before green lighting it, or are they just rounding up various e-mails to sell to spammers?
INSTANTJUSTICE - 7/24/2013, 2:30 PM


There's no limit.
