1UP: Why are you forgoing critic screenings for BloodRayne?

UB: we have a premiere where the press can come. piracy is also a problem

[...]

1UP: Several times you've mentioned Loken's sexiness as one of her defining traits. Do you consider sexuality an important part of your films?

UB: yes - because VAMPIRES movies are sexy

[...]

1UP: Sum up what we should expect from Postal in one sentence.

UB: the biggest desaster [sic] on earth - but not for me - for AMERICA


Holy shit. I've got abs of steel after laughing at this. Hahaha, Jesus Christ.

1UP: Though BloodRayne hasn't officially screened for critics, there have been some select showings, one of which prompted a sharply negative review by Ain't It Cool News, a site you previously told 1UP you read. Is that the response you were expecting?

UB: no. HARRY and Quint are retards

hahahahaha!!!.[sic].......this guy is awesome....gotta seek out more[sic] of his interviews....

sic is when you're quoting someone and they talk like neon, so you add [sic] so ppl don't think it's you making all the spelling/grammatical errors.

Uwe Boll Goes Public!

According to Screen Daily, starting this summer, shares of Boll AG will be available for public purchase (German financial papers are guessing that initial value of the stock will be listed at around $10 million); Boll hopes to use the fresh infusion of cash to "handle the international sales of [his] own productions as well as to take on sales of films by third parties." Ah. Yes, I'm sure people will be lining up to have Boll's name associated with their projects.

Boll sues over 'BloodRayne'
Source: Hollywood Reporter

The producers of "BloodRayne" sued their U.S. distributor Monday for allegedly failing to properly promote or distribute the action horror film.

The case brought by Uwe Boll and his companies against Romar Entertainment, James Schramm and Billy Zane seeks unspecified damages in Los Angeles Superior Court for breach of contract and other claims.
 
Boll, the film's director, and his production company were finishing the film in May 2005 when Zane, who appears in the film as Elrich, suggested that Boll grant the U.S. distribution rights to Romar, according to the lawsuit filed by attorney Jonathan Levitan. An agreement was reached on Aug. 31 and the film was released in the U.S. on Jan. 6 in 950 theaters.

The suit accuses Romar of breaching the agreement by failing to ensure that the movie opened in at least 2,000 theaters, of failing to pay the plaintiffs their share of the gross proceeds and failing to use the $10 million advanced by the production company to promote and advertise the film.

It also is alleged that the plaintiffs took about $900,000 out of the money provided for distribution and promotion, including an unauthorized $450,000 "finder's fee" for Zane.

Romar Entertainment reps could not be reached for comment Monday.

The film grossed about $2.4 million at the domestic boxoffice.

Uwe Boll Challanges Tarantino and his critics       
Source: Skewed & Reviewed
 
Maverick Independent filmmaker Uwe Boll is set to face his toughest detractors head on as part of the upcoming movie “Postal” which is based on the highly controversial series from Running with Scissors.

Boll the creator of such films as “House of the Dead”, “Alone in the Dark” , “Bloodrayne”, and the pending “In the Name of the King a Dungeon Siege Tale”, has often been the target of biting and venomous reviews despite the fact that all of his films have turned a profit once the final box office and home video receipts are tallied.

Despite his films financial success, Boll who works outside of the studio system and has his films financed by investors has often been called out by critics as a lousy director whose films are among the worst ever made.

Not content to let such hash criticism go unanswered Boll has decided to face his critics once and for all with a unique challenge that will allow director and critic to face off in a battle royal that further establishes the Directors passion for his craft and his willingness to go the extra mile to put his convictions on the line against those who are content to hide behind their words without any consequences from those they have slighted.

The full release is below:

                                   
                      Uwe Boll Challenges His Critics
                         “To Put Up Or Shut Up !”
 
 
Uwe Boll Invites His Top 5 Most Outspoken Critics of 2005 To Appear In His Feature Film “Postal”.
 
Airfares & Hotel Expenses To Vancouver Will Be Paid By Uwe Boll’s Production Company For These Critics To Be In Postal.

June 12, 2006 – Vancouver, BC – We are proud to announce that Dr.Uwe Boll’s BLOODRAYNE starring Kristanna Loken, Michael Madsen, Matthew Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Sir Ben Kingsley, Will Sanderson, Udo Kier, Meat Loaf, Michael Pare & Billy Zane had a successful release May 23rd., 2006 on DVD in both Canada & USA.

Iain Taylor of Vivendi Visual Entertainment Canada stated, “BloodRayne ranked in the top 6 best selling DVD titles during the first part week of sales in Canada (Nielsen Videoscan Canada)”. In the USA BloodRayne’s DVD performance was even stronger. Tom O’Malley, GM of Vivendi Visual Entertainment (USA), said “For the first time in this industry, a Theatrical Release and the Complete PC Video Game were released together on DVD. BloodRayne ranked in the top 5 best selling DVD titles during its debut week (Nielsen VideoScan USA)”. In both countries unofficial DVD rental statistics have proven to be even more impressive.

Again the fans have shown that the critics of Uwe Boll are out of touch with want the general movie audience population wants.  Dr. Boll has continually been roasted for the films he has directed and produced. His last two films, House of the Dead & Alone in the Dark, cost $20 million but they have grossed over $110 million to-date.  The same negative reactions from some of the same press and the internet critics are now being directed at Uwe Boll’s latest film; BloodRayne.
 
Dr. Uwe Boll has had enough! Uwe Boll’s position is “I am fed up.  I’m fed up with people slamming my films on the Internet without see them. Many journalists make value judgments on my films based on the opinions of one or two thousand Internet voices.  Half of those opinions come from people who’ve never watched my films.  I have been told that “BloodRayne” has a very bad IMDb rating, but how many of those votes of zero were made before the movie appeared in theatres.” The criticism goes on and on.

Uwe is now challenging the critics that failed to watch his films prior to reviewing or commenting, “TO PUT UP OR SHUT UP!” 

On July 17th, 2006 Uwe will start filming his next feature film, “Seed”, starring Will Sanderson, Ralf Moeller, Michael Pare & Andrew Jackson. Following that film he will go into production in late September with another feature called “Postal”.  Both movies will be shot in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Towards the end of the filming of the “Postal” the 5 most outspoken critics will be flown into Vancouver and supplied with hotel rooms.  As a guest of Uwe Boll they will be given the chance to be an extra / stand-in in “Postal” and have the opportunity to put on boxing gloves and enter a BOXING RING  to fight Uwe Boll. Each critic will have the opportunity to bring down Uwe in a 10 bout match.  There will be 5 matches planned over the last two days of the movie. Certain scenes from these boxing matches will become part of the Postal movie. All 5 fights will be televised on the internet and will be covered by international press.

To be eligible you must be a critic who has posted on the internet or have written in magazines / newspapers at least two extremely negative articles in the year 2005. Critics of 2006 will not be considered. Please submit proof of your negative reviews & comments via e-mail to:

                                                         info@boll-kg.de

All challengers must be healthy males, weighing between 64 kilograms (140 lbs.) and 86 kilograms (190 lbs.). You will require to be physically examined by a doctor and sign the necessary release forms for liability, etc.  You will not be paid or entitled to any residuals or fees. Your transportation & hotel costs will be covered.

Dr. Uwe Boll’s invitation to fight and / or appear in his film is extended to all his harshest critics.  Roger Avary and Quentin Tarantino are among the most eligible candidates.

The following posters to the IMDb have earned the right to be placed on the list of the most extreme anti-Boll critics and are therefore eligible to enter the contest.  Contestants will be chosen to be an extra and physically box Dr. Uwe Boll.
