Interview: Uwe Boll On The Rise And Success Of Video Game Movies

With The Super Mario Bros Movie, Sonic the Hedgehog, and The Last of Us, video game adaptations are bigger than ever. While they are now seen as the next great blockbuster frontier, possibly replacing superhero movies, it wasn’t always the case. Video game movies were a dying genre, but controversial and prolific filmmaker Uwe Boll did his part to keep them alive with films such as House of the Dead, Alone in the Dark, Bloodrayne, Far Cry, and Postal.

John Nolan had a chance to speak with Boll about the explosion of video game movies, and what he thinks of that part of the business now in light of his past experiences.
