Dredd sequel is a go (sort of) on Day Of Action

September 18th, 2013 by Marc 2 Comments

Today, Dredd fans, is Day Of Action. Day of what? Well, if you want a sequel to last year’s Dredd then today is the day to make your voice heard by going out and buying or downloading the movie… we want this to happen and have already got our copies but we’re all heading over to the Day Of Action site and making sure we’ve all signed the petition here, another way of getting your voice heard.

In the meantime, Dredd: Underbelly will be published in today’s Dredd Magazine and will pick up directly from the end of the movie and will see Dredd and Anderson “fighting the tsunami of crime on the mean streets of the dystopian Mega-City One”, it will be written by Arthur Wyatt and is part of the push for the actual sequel. It’s possible to watch Dredd (2011) on your computer. You can stream movies online here

Organisers of DoA say: “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!”

The official petition for a sequel has already passed 80,000 signatures. Check out the Day Of Action page here

And don’t forget when the sequel does come out – fingers crossed – you can find your nearest screen  here.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
