DREDD was a huge smash with genre fans this past September, but no so much with the general audience, taking in only $28 million worldwide (including a measly $13 million here in the states). Don't ask me why this flick didn't connect, but the fact remains that it was unfortunately a bust at the box office, despite all that great word-of-mouth.
That injustice will likely be corrected, however, when the film bursts onto the home video market: DREDD has been slapped with a JANUARY 8th DVD/Blu-ray release date. That date will also see the film hit Digital Download, On Demand, and Pay-Per-View.
The Blu-ray and DVD special features include:
* "Mega-City Masters": 35 Years of Judge Dredd" featurette
* "Day of Chaos: The Visual Effects of Dredd 3D" featurette
* "Dredd" featurette
* "Dredd's Gear" featurette
* "The 3rd Dimension" featurette
* "Welcome to Peachtrees" featurette
* Dredd Motion Comic Prequel
The future America is an irradiated wasteland. On its east coast, running from Boston to Washington D.C., lies Mega City One – a vast, violent metropolis where criminals rule the chaotic streets. The only force of order lies with the urban cops called “Judges” who possess the combined powers of judge, jury and instant executioner. Known and feared throughout the city, Dredd (Karl Urban) is the ultimate Judge, challenged with ridding the city of its latest scourge, a dangerous drug called “Slo-Mo,” and the sadistic crime boss Ma-Ma (Lena Headey) who is using it to take over the city.
