What About Dredd 2?

In 2012, director Pete Travis came with a new science fiction action movie named Dredd. The main plot of this movie was based on the 2000 AD comic strip Judge Dredd.

The main character of this movie was Karl Urban who acts as a law enforcer. But the unique thing was this character has the power of judge, jury, and execution.

Somehow this movie missed some clicks that could be the key point of the movie but fans of this movie believe Dredd 2 is going to happen.

About the Releases of Dredd 2

There were rumors everywhere about the Sci-Fi action movie Dredd 2. A tweet of Karl Urban talked about the release of the sequel. He ensured that all the rumors online are not true at all. There may still be a chance for the sequel but not soon. He also said that there is no sequel in development.

On April 2, 2014, Karl Urban opened his mouth again for the sequel of Dredd. His statement gives us some hope. Not for real, but he said what he is planning about this movie and shared a video where he shared that he is not going to give up.

An update from the Urban Led also indicates that there is a chance for the second part of Dredd. But how can they say that? At first, the first installment of Dredd earned only $36 million worldwide. It’s not a mentionable amount for this movie because the budget was almost $50 million.

Maybe it faced a hard time in the theater but from the DVD sales, this movie earned the most. This earning is the reason to make the sequel.

What Fans Expect From Dredd 2?

In Dredd, there was something uncompleted! Guess what?  Do you remember the ending of Dredd? The Chief Judge asked Dredd about the performance of Anderson but he lied. He said Anderson passed the test. That means there are some reasons Dredd lied to the Chief Judge.

Maybe there is something we can see in the next movie. We hope we are going to see her as a judge and more we can find about the chief judge. We’ll get the answer to why he didn’t ask about the missing criteria.

Somehow the chemistry between Judge Dredd and Anderson doesn’t meet our expectations. In their first case at the hand of Ma-Ma, this couple gets the golden chance to get to know each other better.

They spend more time in action, not in romance. That’s why their relationship becomes complicated. We hope in the next movie, they will come closer and make a good relationship.

On the other hand, there are many other judges like Guthrie and Volt. They didn’t get the scope to share the screen in many scenes. Maybe they will get a scope in the next movie.

As you know, the story of Dredd is inspired by the comic and we saw the most fascinating enemies. We hope in the sequel all these enemies will make the story more interesting.
