DREDD Blu-ray Trailer
The misfire of Dredd in theaters is a little baffling but nevertheless, the film is hitting dvd and blu-ray on January 8th. Don't make the same mistake twice, this is a comic book movie that you definitely want to check out.
Dredd had a rumored budget of $50M and has so far earned a combined box office gross of $30.9M. It's safe to say that we probably won't be getting a sequel, which is a shame because it was one of the better action films of the summer. The film has yet to premiere in Japan so if it can still earn a bit more but the odds of the film turning a profit or even matching its budget are low.

Dredd is a 2012 British science fiction action film directed by Pete Travis and written by Alex Garland. It is based on the 2000 AD comic strip Judge Dredd and its eponymous character by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra. Karl Urban stars as Judge Dredd, a law enforcer given the power of judge, jury and executioner in the vast dystopian metropolis of Mega-City One that lies within a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Alongside rookie Judge Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), Dredd is forced to bring order to a feared 200-story slum and its resident drug lord, Ma-Ma (Lena Headey).
Garland began writing the script as early as 2006, although development of a new Judge Dredd film adaptation was not announced until December 2008, that would be unrelated to the 1995 film adaptation Judge Dredd. Principal photography began in November 2010, with an estimated $45 million (US) budget. The project was shot using 3D cameras throughout on practical sets, and on location in the South African cities of Cape Town and Johannesburg. Dredd was released on 7 September 2012 in the United Kingdom. It is scheduled for release worldwide on 21 September 2012.
