Watched Dredd again for the 4th time a few months ago, it's still entertaining.

Hoping Deadpool's total non-flop mega-success at what a small budget, R-rating and clever marketing can earn, revitalize the studios interest in doing a Dredd 2 with Urban.

Yeah but people can be really stupid. For instance the guy who had no faith in Deadpool being a hit by following the Marvel source material so closely. He obviously had no faith in Marvel's source material.

Yeah, it doesn't get old for me either. I've seen it 3 or 4 times now, too.

A Netflix series would actually probably be better than another movie. It would really flesh things out. That would kick ass. Here's to hoping. The marketing was terrible, he's right. I didn't see it in the theater because the ads misled me. It was advertised as a lame 3D gimmick, like Piranha 3D or some shit. Instead of calling the film "Dredd 3D" they should have called it "Dredd" and said, "see it in 3D" or whatnot...



...but actually on the blu-ray release I don't find the 3D to be all that great. The film is great without it.

The Sylvester Stallone Dredd is a guilty pleasure for the things it does make entertaining, while being basically a parody of the comics...

But yeah, would still prefer a Netflix series over another movie. It's one thing for Deadpool to be that successful as an R-rated movie because he's Deadpool, but Dredd is rather niche in comparison. I'm not sure a change in marketing would make him that much more successful at the cinema.

See I much prefer the dry wit of Judge Dredd to the over-the-top trying-too-hard humor of Deadpool, but that's just me. Dredd had a much more interesting premise than Deadpool, too. That's not even a contest. That's the reason I'm a little annoyed that Deadpool was such a huge success: it shows that movie goers don't give a shit about a decent story.

Good point. Sad, but probably true. But I bet it could make a killing on Netflix in much the same way that Daredevil has.

F#ck yeah. Once written I have faith that someone worthy (like Netflix, I hope) will pick it up.

Honestly, I think I'd rather see a Netflix TV series than a movie because there is more room for story and character development.

Hooray for inaccurate reporting from Denver Comic Con

Update from Karl Urban himself: "Unfortunately a sequel is no closer to happening , options have been discussed but there is no sequel in " development "

I hope so. This property is way too good to let fade off.

I still say we should lay a LARGE Chunk of the Blame for Dredd flopping on the Ass Hatted Populace that were to ignorant to give this movie a chance, nut just blame "the Studios".

Thing with the Populace these days when it comes to Comic book adaptations, If its not a Marvel or DC property people hardly go near it

i'm surprised Kingsman: The Secret Service even did good.

To be fair, though, Dredd was marketed poorly. They seemed to emphasize the "3D" as to make it seem like some gimmick. And people probably couldn't help but associate it with the Stallone Dredd film.

But yeah, I think it's fair to blame the populace, too. Because if it doesn't have a big name like the over-rated Tom Cruise or (like Kaz pointed out) a Marvel or DC association people will largely overlook it.

Still a painful pill to swallow five years later, but yeah. Think maybe Dredd could have done better if released a year or so later, since 2012 had the Avengers when Marvel reached its first real peak in hype, and DC still had Nolan with Dark Knight Rises during that year. IDK but with some of the turds we later got after that (particularly on WB/DC's end until Wonder Woman), I like to think Dredd would've had something of a better chance standing out on its own to people than 2012 when it didn't have a chance to do so because of Avengers hype and shit. Then again, the said ignorance of the populace may have remained the same no matter what year Dredd came out.

That last posted link is good looking news and all, but with how news progress on a Dredd continuation has been rather flippant or gone back and forth, still not getting my hopes up yet, though anything pointing toward Karl Urban still involved is definitely a good sign.
