+/- 200 people leave free Postal screening in the first 10 minutes.

2 min read


You may remember, or have tried to forget, Uwe Boll, the notoriously terrible director of game to movie conversions such as BloodRayne, Alone in the Dark and In The Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale. You may also remember that he claimed that his new movie “Postal”, based on the videogame of the same name was going to destroy the new Indiana Jones movie in the box-office.

In an email to bloodydisgusting.com he wrote that:

“On the Indiana Jones weekend – May 23 – we will go out and destroy Indiana Jones in the Box Office! We all know that Harrison Ford is older as my grandpa and his time is up – would Michael Moore say!…Spielberg gets sloppy. We saw that with War of the Worlds (why the f**k the older brother survived?) and also in parts of Jaws, E.T., Munich etc.! My performance in Postal as ‘Nazi Theme Park Owner’ outperforms easily Ben Kingsley in Schindler’s List!”

Not only was Postal only able to get 4, yes 4 theatres that would let him show his movie, but it has now been reported that in a free screening of the movie, around 200 people walked out in the first 10 minutes.

The main reason is that the movie begins with a scene that depicts the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Centre. In the movie, the “terrorists” hijack the plane because they want to go to the Bahamas instead, but when the passengers of the plane storm the cockpit, they cause it to crash into the towers.

The huge issue seems to be that people in the US aren’t yet ready for humour based on 9/11. Many people suffered great losses that day and it is probably not something that should be joked about just yet. Its obvious that you have done something seriously wrong if nearly 200 people walk out of a FREE screening of the movie.

Bingegamer.net reports that “Boll defended the film, saying that while he didn’t want to hurt anybody, he wanted Postal to break the rules, and bring into question what exactly is ‘taboo’.”

Seriously Mr. Boll, you need to start taking the hint.

    Overly sensitive Yanks.

    I’da loled at that scene.
    Terrorist steal a plane to go to the beach…

  • Naudran

    I disagree. if you think about it. The attack on Pearl Harbour by Japan killed 2350 people. 9/11’s attack killed 2752… you don’t see any jokes about Pearl Harbour… so if he really thought that the Yanks would stand for a joke about 9/11, then he is as stupid as he sounds/looks/smells.

  • You know, the thing is… It is a funny concept to be honest, the fact that it wasnt actually their doing. But its still way early for things like that, a lot of ppl died that day and a lot of americans still live in a lot of fear because of 9/11. Even though it was the government anyway (CONSPIRACY ALERT). lol

  • j4nr1k

    Well with over a MILLION Iraqi deaths… I have 0% sympathy with the yanks.

    [crappy warning]I will delete comments if this becomes a political

    Not intended as a political discussion, just trying to give a context to the 2752 dead argument.

    It was always intended to be a off colour bad taste movie… like the postal games.

  • Naudran

    🙂 I’m not condoning what’s happening in Iraq. And I agree totally with having no sympathy towards Yanks… just thought I would throw a reason why they would react like that.

    Although that being said, they are a bunch of hypocrites. Join the “Motivational pictures done in bad taste” group on Facebook. You’ll see them cry foul at anything related to 9/11, yet laugh at an Arabic man crying over his sons body after a suicide bomb attack.

    Actually I’am damn glad mr UWE suck Boll’s movie was a walk out in fact, I hope most of those people got refunds or something and did it on a scale big enough to get cinema houses to boycott him.

    I also hope that he is never allowed to direct anything ever, like seriosly.

  • Malachi

    I Fing LOVED this movie! It was absolutely hilarious. I don’t know how many times I have seen it I just wish it would of came to a theater where I lived. ALL of you people that can not laugh at this movie should probably go back to Israel as you know [Censored].

  • Chunkyfeather

    Hahahaha, now im intrigued about this movie!!!
