Leterrier Talks Hulk Trailer, Fight

Director Louis Leterrier recently talked through “The Incredible Hulk teaser trailer with Empire Magazine and revealed some interesting new facts.

Most notable, and my personal main problem with the trailer, is the rather hokey looking CG being used to create the Hulk and the Abomination in the last 30 seconds of the preview.

Leterrier confirms that those shots aren’t done yet – “[We released the trailer quite late because] no shots are finished yet… None of the shots in this trailer are finished shots, but I think it’s decent enough and it shows the audience what we’re going for.”

Also despite the way the trailer was layed out, expect the Hulk to show up early and often – “You’ll see Bruce Banner transform in minute three. (Laughs) Minute three! That’s what’s good about it and it was really important when I was accepting the movie. We’re not treating it as an origin movie but: Bruce Banner stepping into his chair and the gamma bomb and everything. He’s the Hulk already, with the Hulk within him, and you get to understand how he came to be in this situation.”

He’s also not holding back with the finale glimpses in the trailer, which sounds fun but “King Kong”-esque in that it’s a way too drawn out CG big creature fight – “unlike a normal movie where the final fight scene is six minutes long, ours is 26 minutes long! So you get 26 minutes of two monsters pummelling each other through New York City, jumping up and down, ripping helicopters from the sky and stuff. You know, lots of green blood on the street, splashed all around. So it’s pretty cool. …Some humans try to get out of the way but no, they can’t… there’s a little bit of collateral damage! (Laughs) There’s a bit of a bodycount. Not on account of the Hulk — the Hulk’s a saviour — but Blomsky [Abomination] is ruthless.”
