Here is the statement from the campaign organisers Frank and Brian:
It’s been an incredible year. Earlier this year, we’re sure you saw Karl Urban himself praise the campaign, thank every single one of you for signing the petition, and told us to keep going!
The big DAY OF DREDD push last September was massively successful – DREDD went straight to the top of the DVD and Blu-Ray charts in multiple countries and sparking acres of press coverage, giving a huge boost to the petition (another 30,000 of you joined up!). But that doesn’t mean we’re going to sit on our laurels.
We’re really happy to announce that we’re designating Wednesday 1st October as the DAY OF DREDD 2014!
This is a fan-created, fan-run, fan-made campaign and that’s who makes it so special – the fans. Let’s show Hollywood that we’ve not gone away and we’re not going to take no for an answer. We want more of our favourite movie!
So, next Wednesday we’re calling on everyone to shout about DREDD – buy it again on DVD or Blu-Ray, get it back up those charts or, even better, get it sold out! Watch it with friends, talk about it online, share it on your Facebook and Twitter accounts with the hashtag #DayOfDredd, encourage your favourite news outlets to cover the big push, even wear your Dredd suit when you go shopping! It all helps keep DREDD in the public eye.
You ready, rookies? We can do this together – October 1st will be THE DAY OF DREDD!
