Postal Film Scaled to Four-Screen Limited Release; Director Uwe Boll Issues Bonkers Response

Related Topics – Postal, Hollywood

The release of the controversial film adaptation of Running With Scissors' Postal has been scaled back to a limited release in only four theaters nationwide as a result of boycotting theatrical distributors.

The film, which is slated to hit theaters next week, was originally planned for release in more than 1500 theaters across the United States. Owing to the flick's controversial and politically charged content—which features spoofs of 9/11 and Jewish culture, among other jokes—many distributors are refusing to carry the film. Read more »

Postal 10th Anniversary Collector's Edition Packaging: 'Slightly better than boxed Syphilis!'

Running With Scissors just sent over a Collector's Edition copy of the Postal series, which celebrates the franchise's 10th anniversary by including all of Postal games released thus far. I was so impressed by the box that I couldn't help but throw some pictures up here.

Like the games, the cereal box-esque packaging is twisted, demented, inappropriate, and, most importantly, hilarious. Be sure to check out the nutrition "facts." Read more »

Postal The Movie Coming

Running With Scissors sends along this press release, announcing that they have signed "a suicide pact" with movie director Uwe Boll to create a Postal movie. Boll had previously mentioned that Postal was one of his favorite games, so it's no real surprise this is happening. Hey at least it will take time away from him molesting a good game franchise right?

"Uwe Boll is the perfect producer-director to make POSTAL," affirmed Running With Scissors' CEO Vince Desi. "He understands the subject matter and has an appreciation and affinity for controversy and political incorrectness. POSTAL has always been about reason and insanity, violence and motivation; producer-director Uwe Boll is simply the right guy to bring that vision to the screen." The man behind the camera, Hollywood outsider Uwe Boll ranks POSTAL as his personal, all-time favorite video game. "I see it like a mirror for our society -- funny, violent, absurd!" he declared. "So then the movie must be powerful, strange, and so full of the game's political incorrect outrageousness that if we do it correct, we will all probably end up in jail!"
The movie will start shooting in 2006 for a 2007 release.
