Movie News: DREDD 2 Needs You! Campaigners Announce ‘Day of Action’

Movie News

As you’ve probably noticed, we’re huge fans of DREDD here at Starburst, and like many of you we’re still frustrated by its box-office failure (the 1995 Stallone abomination sure casts a long shadow it seems). While the chances of ever getting a sequel initially looked slim, strong home video sales, star Karl Urban’s optimism and the overwhelming support (80,000 and rising) behind official campaigners ‘Make a DREDD Sequel’ are slowly but surely convincing us that we’ve not seen the last of the character’s live-action adventures. But there’s work to do. And the guys at ‘Make a DREDD Sequel’ have a new idea for another big push. Read on to see what you can do…

From the Statement:

On 18th September, we're encouraging everyone to take part in a massive DREDD SEQUEL DAY OF ACTION - we've already made the moneymen who could get behind a sequel sit up and take notice by consistently keeping the DVD and Blu-Ray in the charts on Amazon and now on Netflix.

We're asking everyone who's signed the petition to come together next Wednesday (September 18th) and drive DREDD back up the charts - if everyone who's signed the petition bought an extra DVD or Blu-Ray (either for themselves or as a present for a friend) or rented/bought it on iTunes and Netflix it will send the loudest signal yet that WE WANT MORE DREDD!

So spread the word that on Wednesday 18th September, you're going to bring DREDD back into the public eye! Plus, it's the day that the new comic book sequel comes out, with lots of media attention planned for this and the campaign.

So, you ready?

There’s also now an official campaign shirt available that you can buy here, and as mentioned, next Wednesday sees the release of the sequel comic book from Rebellion. Get to it guys!
