During the past few weeks we have heard director Uwe Boll challenge Michael Bay to a boxing match, claim that his "Postal" movie will do better than "Indiana Jones 4" and participate in endless internet videos which consist of random ranting.
Now, LoadingReadyRun got the chance to interview Boll and ask him to clear a few things up. Watch the video below to hear Boll explain that all his nonsense was just a way to promote "Postal," confirm everyone else's opinions of how terrible Tara Reid is as an actress and some of his ideas for a possible "Grand Theft Auto" movie.
I don't much like the sort of movie that Uwe makes but I'll get the DVD out to see it just to support his point of view and philosophy.
The French love to hear a different point of view discussed in a rational manner and they love a good argument. He should start marketing here too.
They love horror movies as well. Look at how popular Woody Ellen is :)
are these people clueless? of course it was viral marketing....the reason no one got it, is because no one is carrying postal...so boll was hoping the hubbub would increase distribution. trust me uwe, the reason you arent getting theaters has nothing to do with the political climate...if that crapfest harold and kumar can get wide, with a scene of bush getting stoned, then your movie could too...the problem is, in these economic times, and the fact that your movies bomb in america, no one wants to put a loser into a theater....you shoulda gone stdvd....and boll, this paragon of movie history, sure as sh*t doesnt know anything about comic book movie budgets....the first xmen was budgeted at where most video game movies are...but it made money, so the next movie was given a larger budget. daredevil got a low budget, it sucked...no more daredevil. i wish boll would be honest as to why he likes video game properties...he likes putting out movies where he doesnt have to think how to make them...there aint no there, there...and were it not for germany's really wierd tax laws, the guy would mever be making movies...oh well...they wanna make a sequel to plan 9...now there is a movie for boll
You are kidding me right. The first X-Men got a $75 Million dollar budget. I don't think video game movies have ever even got close to that kind of a budget. Hitman was made for $17.5 Million. Postal was made for $16 Million. Although I must admit that his movies aren't really that good. In fact they are quite bad, but the guy has a valid point about how Studios seem to run the festivals. They show only the movies they wish to see, mostly the ones that they release, making it harder for good young directors to breakthrough in the industry. How the hell did Indiana Jones make it to Cannes I will never know. Don't get me wrong the movie was AWESOME but it didn't belong in Cannes.
