Uwe Boll’s ‘Darfur’ Trailer Cannot Spell


As much as you’d love for me to give the normal angry comments about how bad Uwe Boll is (and he is absolutely terrible as a director), I have something new to add to the pile of arguments against the man.

Uwe Boll can’t spell.

Or at least his marketing department can’t, because the new trailer for Darfur, a film based on a topic so far beyond Boll’s intelligence level that he’d need a twenty foot pole just to touch it with a ten foot pole, has a damned misspelling in it.

Say what you will about our own grammar-mistake-and-typo-ridden film site, but I’ve never (in all my years of studying film marketing), ever, ever seen a straight-up misspelling in a piece of film marketing. Let alone a trailer.

It happens at 1:39 in the trailer, but you should definitely check out the whole thing:

Thanks, Dr. Boll!

Even more fine velvet glove work about the tough issues from the world’s greatest filmmaker.

What do you think?
