According to the BFI site; The Sweeney - £4,453,350    Dredd - £4,355,512

The Sweeney cost around 2 million sov's, Guvnor; making a sequel almost inevitable. DNA were the original producers of The Sweeney, until the financing fell through in 2008 and they decided to make Dredd instead. I'm playing a game of irony-Jenga - can anyone else add to this teetering pile of cruel coincidences?

A sequel? I might watch the first one when it's on ITV2!

Be all the same dumb people that seem to believe professsional Ali G impersonator Plan B is actually a black guy from da hood instead of a middle class white berk. (I'm not a fan).

On the slightly sluggish side of decent-ish opening for Dredd in Australia - number 4, $809K (Australian dollars = £521K), although the monster that is Taken 2 shows just how much money there is to make in that market - $17 million in three weeks.

Any updates now that we know it's making the rounds in Asia (or will be)?
