Today is the official ‘Day of Action’ run by the Make A Dredd Sequel campaign, supported by 2000AD.
The Campaign started off as a Facebook Page and is now a petition with over 83,000 signatures. What they are looking for is as many people as possible to buy or rent the 2012 film TODAY as possible. In their own words:
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.
Not only have 2000AD’s publisher Rebellion got behind the campaign but Dredd star Karl Urban has publicly said he is watching the campaign with interest and would love to reprise his role.
