Postal, the film based on the controversial video game series, has received the "Best of Festival" award at the Hoboken Film Festival, according to a press release from Running with Scissors.
Much-maligned filmmaker Uwe Boll was also named Best Director for his work on the Postal movie. Vince Desi (left), RWS boss and executive producer of the film, said:
When the fans speak, we win. We know this from our experience in the game industry and now the film business just confirms it. The continued success of the POSTAL franchise in all its forms is proof that democracy works; you cannot stop what’s in the hearts of the people. Freedom will always triumph over tyranny.
GP heard from Desi last week, and he offered some additional comments:
My goal was to have a theatrical release, that accomplished, the DVD comes out August 26th... [The Postal movie] ran three weeks in Georgia and South Carolina and two weeks in Chicago. Overall, we made it to around 18 cities.
My main focus now is Postal III for Xbox 360 and PS3 for next year...
