Re: Judge Dredd Reboot!! - Part 2
It depends how bad the "flop" is. I mean, 2004's Punisher wasn't really considered a massive flop, but it limped by and at least made it's budget back in theaters. Then, when it hit DVD, it was a bigger success and thus made enough to warrant a "sequel."
Dredd, on the other hand, made an absolutely dismal amount of cash at the box office, so the DVD/Blu sales would have to be crazy to make up for it. Or, if it becomes a huge cult movie, someone might greenlight a sequel based on potential "cult" profits. But it probably wouldn't get a bigger budget in that case.
