The bloody fight for a sequel to the 2012 movie Dredd still rages on. So far, the brains behind the movement have managed to gather 80,000 signatures and boost Dredd DVD and Blu-ray sales and rentals to show the folks with the fat wallets that the fans are indeed with them. And with a new set of Dredd comics coming out – a continuation of the film in their own right – Dredd sequel supporters are ready to take this to the second round. September 18th is the day of battle and the following message from the official support site tells you what you can do to help:
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 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.
Thanks to Rebellion for helping put this newsletter together – we’re also really pleased to reveal that the official T-shirt for the campaign is now available, so you can wear your support with pride!
So, you ready?
