To the delight of theater-goers worldwide, Postal: The Movie is now set for a big-screen release on May 23.
Based on the cult classic videogame by Running With Scissors, Postal: The Movie has been circulating through small film festivals and preview screenings for the past year. According to director Uwe Boll, the full release of the movie was delayed as a result of litigation involving the New York Post and the movie’s “outrageous opening scene spoofing 9/11.”
“Frankly, we’re ecstatic that a release date has been set, and to have Universal behind it is all the sweeter,” said Running With Scissors CEO Vince Desi, who also appears in the movie. “We’ve been working overtime developing Postal 3 for PC and console and our fans have been waiting to see this movie for a long time now.”
Commenting on the movie’s release date coinciding with that of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Boll said, “We will go out and destroy Indiana Jones at the box office!” Boll is known throughout the industry for his work in adapting videogames to movies, having directed titles including Alone in the Dark, BloodRayne, and In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale.
Postal: The Movie stars Zack Ward as “Postal Dude,” along with Kids in the Hall alumni Dave Foley, Verne “Mini Me” Troyer, Larry Thomas of Seinfeld Soup Nazi fame, and respected character actor J.K. Simmons. The movie is rated R for extremely crude humor, strong sexuality, graphic nudity, violence, pervasive language and drug use.
