After loudly declaring that Postal would “destroy” Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull at the box office in its opening weekend, Vulture buddy Uwe Boll has apparently declined to release the numbers for the movie, self-distributed through his company Event Film. According to Variety’s video-game blog, the Cut Scene, neither Variety nor Rentrak, the popular box-office tracking service, ever received official word about Postal’s gross, implying that Boll either just never got around to it, or he’s been too busy celebrating his victory over Crystal Skull to make the phone call.
Postal opened in just thirteen theaters nationwide, so, to overcome Skull’s $151.1 million five-day take, it would have to had earned about $11.6 million per screen — a tall order. The Website for Cobble Hill Cinema, the only New York–area theater showing the film, says Postal’s final showing will be tomorrow, indicating that it might’ve fallen a little short.
