Though it bombed in American theaters when it was released in September (only earning thirteen million dollars), Dredd has found new life in Blu Ray/DVD and digtal sales.  Lionsgate announced that the movie has sold over 650,000 units and claimed the number one spot in sales for all formats. Here's what they said in an official press release:

 

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The verdict is in and Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF), a leading global entertainment company, announced today that the home entertainment release of DREDD claimed the number one spot on the DVD sell-through and Blu-ray charts with 650,000 units sold, making it the best-selling new release title of the year.  Blu-ray units accounted for nearly 50% of week 1 POS at retail.  In addition, the critically acclaimed thriller, starring Karl Urban (Star Trek) as the titular character Judge Dredd, was the top film download for the week, outpacing all other titles in digital sales as well.

 

So what does this mean? HOPE. Hope for more judgement time.
