Want 'Dredd 2?' Sign This Official Petition!

Sign this petition or you're betraying the law.

Despite being all kinds of awesome and getting widely positive reviews, Dredd didn't do very well at the box office. It was a hit when it eventually came to blu-ray/DVD sales, but disappointing box office figures isn't exactly easy for a studio to overlook. We desperately want a sequel and it's clear many others do, too -- the "Make a Dredd Sequel" Facebook page currently has over 31,000 likes. Publisher 2000AD definitely isn't giving up on the live-action version of the franchise and they've created an official petition to hopefully boost the odds of a sequel being made.

CLICK HERE FOR THE PETITION!

It's unclear how many signatures are required to be a success, but that shouldn't deter you from doing the right thing and signing it, right? We'd be more than thrilled to see Karl Urban reprise the role, so hopefully this will make a difference!

Who else now has a strong urge to rewatch Dredd?

Eh no petitions helped in every one of those cases because they provide media coverage, especially since it's Dredd's actual publisher that's started the campaign not to mention the sales for the Dredd DVD/Blueray bumped it to the number one spot at three different occasions after it's release.

Nah.

Media coverage comes from the media picking up interest, through open letters, costumes and protests, internet traffic (which can include a petition if it has enough signatures) etc.

The main thing is sales. The studio isn't going to commit to something if they don't think they will see a return, and a petition makes no difference in that case.

I stand by my point, a petition alone isn't enough to make any difference.

If we want dredd 2, we need to encourage people to go out and buy the first movie.

Showing support financially is how to guarantee the 2nd movie gets made.

They could always do a kickstarter as well.

Well if you go on to any comic/movie/popcultural website and they are reporting on the petition so I don't see how it's not providing media coverage
