Adapted by Alex Garland from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra's legendary comic 
book and released in a stunning 3-D Blu-ray, DREDD adds to Lionsgate's long 
history of theatrical titles that have overconverted their box office 
performance on Blu-ray, DVD and digital.  Lionsgate continues to lead the 
industry in DVD-to-box office conversion rates. 
Hailed by audiences and critics alike, the post-apocalyptic thriller also 
stars Olivia Thirlby (Juno) and Lena Headey (HBO's "Game Of Thrones"). 
Blending pulse-pounding action with mesmerizing visual effects sequences, the 
sci-fi thriller directed by Pete Travis (Vantage Point) takes place in 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.  The Blu-ray Disc and DVD both 
contain multiple behind-the-scenes featurettes including a look back at the 35 
years of Judge Dredd. 
With a highly competitive landscape during its theatrical debut, the 
thriller's powerful home entertainment success underscores the importance of 
the market, allowing entertainment enthusiasts to enjoy their favorite films 
in a multitude of formats. 
"DREDD's chart topping performance demonstrates the breadth of the home 
entertainment audience for this exciting, high caliber film as well as 
underscoring our ability to monetize theatrical titles across all home 
entertainment platforms through the highest packaged, VOD and digital 
conversion rates in the industry," said Ron Schwartz, Lionsgate Executive Vice 
President & General Manager, Home Entertainment. "We're also pleased that a 
film released on 3-D Blu-ray was able to top the sales charts, a clear 
reflection of how quality films in this up and coming format can find their 
audience." 
Lionsgate recently announced a partnership with Korean consumer electronics 
giant Samsung to convert select Lionsgate action and thriller titles for the 
booming 3-D home entertainment market.
