We got our first look at The Incredible Hulk yesterday and things look pretty good. I have watched it around 20 times since it was released and the final charge between The Hulk and Abomination gets me pumped. Thankfully, Louis Leterrier is a cool director, and spoke to Empire, giving them a walk through of the trailer. Regarding the scene I have just mentioned, Leterrier said:
” This sequence is toward the end of the movie. But our final scene, our final battle – 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. For me it was one of the most exciting elements of making the movie: ‘I have two monsters fighting in New York City, that’s going to be fun.’ You know, how do you come up with fun, original stuff? And you’ve seen just the beginning of the face-off, with the monsters running towards each other — BOOM! — they smash into each other, and then craziness ensues. 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 is ruthless.”
26 minutes long! I’m looking forward to that!
Leterrier also talks about why it has taken so long for us to finally see the trailer (effects on Hulk not finished), Liv Tyler’s Betty and a few other scenes from the trailer. You can read it all by clicking here!
