The next couple of weeks could see some exciting news hit the net.
The following article is from http://www.digitalspy.com
Rumours of a sequel to Dredd 3D have caused an apparent spike in DVD sales.
The 2012 comic book movie reboot leaped up Amazon’s charts after it was reported that a follow-up to the well-received film was under consideration, reports Robot 6.
A post on the ‘Make a Dredd Sequel’ Facebook page has claimed that “DNA Films will be reviewing the Blu-ray/DVD sales of Dredd in the coming weeks and will be deciding whether or not to make a sequel”.
The Dredd Blu-ray currently occupies Amazon.co.uk’s top spot and has jumped from 260th to 30th position on Amazon.com.
Despite reaching number one in the UK box office, the movie underperformed in the US.
After the props were auctioned off, the chances of a sequel were considered slim, but star Karl Urban has said that a Dredd follow-up is “not off the agenda”.
“Clearly everyone has woken up to the fact that an audience has found this movie and loves it,” he explained. “It’s entirely possible, and if people want to see another instalment then they should be vocal about that because it can happen.”
I certainly hope so.
My only worry is that if they do make a sequel then the marketing company needs to be changed!!
Whoever thought it would be a good idea to limit the 2D showings should, I hope, be out of a job because that is suicide for a film.
You need to make it accessible to ‘everyone’ and not just limit it to the 3D fans and fans that can afford the 3D excess!!
