Factor in the theatre and distributors cut (which is higher for the foreign markets too) and that gross goes down a lot so they have to make a good bit more than $17mil with DVD's/Blu-Rays etc to get into the black on this one.
My best guess (and I stress this is a pure guess as I have no idea just how much money they keep from everything) is they will need to sell something like a minimum of 2 million units of DVD & Blu-Rays to reach that target.
According to the-numbers.com, Dredd made more than that WW, it actually made just over $36 million WW. So your prediction may be a little off, although its probably still aboue right. Either way, lets hope it happens.

Maybe there's hope yet.
Damn, was in there yesterday and didnt even think to look. Anyway, thats both Tesco (the Allerton Rd one) and HMV that have a ran out of copies in 10 days since the release. Surely the same is happening in the rest of the UK as well? Either way, good news and some hope still for a sequel.
