Uwe Boll's $27 Million Mistake
According to an article on Shacknews, Uwe Boll (director of the upcoming Dungeon Siege, and known for other video game movie adaptations) might become associated with one of the greatest blunders in cinematic history. An extra 5,500 reels of his latest film, BloodRayne, were distributed to theaters, a mistake that could cost someone $27 Million.
According to Shacknews, a computer error led to the distribution of BloodRayne reels to 5,500 too many theaters. At about $5,000 a pop, that means total costs might exceed $27 Million. This is exacerbated by the fact that the film is showing on fewer than 1,000 screens, and only earned only about $1.2 Million opening weekend. Read the full story here.
