Uwe Boll Vs. The New York Post
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
The always controversial film maker Uwe Boll recently launched the New York Postal (www.ny-postal.com) website in response to a negative story in The New York Post about his upcoming movie, Postal. Boll objected to the story's focus on a scene in the movie trailer depicting a plane crashing into a building rather than a review of the entire movie.
Boll said he received a call from New York Post reporter Jill Culora in April about the trailer for the $20 million Postal movie, which includes a plane crashing into a building. Rather than watching the movie, the director said the reporter went to 9/11 victims with the clip and asked for reactions. Although Boll refused to remove or change the website, threats of legal action by the Post convinced Boll's service provider to remove www.ny-postal.com. It can still be viewed at the link below.

"They took the clip and showed it out of context," said Boll. "The scene is a parody of fundamentalist fanatics. We don't make fun of the victims of 9/11."
Boll takes issue with the New York Post writing that Postal is a movie that should not be allowed to play in theaters.
"It's not acceptable that a rag corner newspaper is trying to censor a comedy without even taking the time to watch it," said Boll.
Boll did offer one solution to the current situation. He said he's open to settling this dispute in the boxing ring. Last fall, during the Postal shoot, Boll fought four of his critics in a pay-per-view online boxing match in Vancouver. One of those critics is now interning on the set of Far Cry.
