Leterrier on Hulk
Empire sat down with Louis Leterrier, the director of THE INCREDIBLE HULK and got him to dish on that trailer, which we all found so intriguing yesterday. Personally, while watching it I was thinking wow, I really don't need one of the action beats to be him running through Brazil in a red hoodie, and then thinking yeah, they're showing us way too much. But then I remembered that it was Edward Norton and that he was awesome, and I told my inner-monologue to shut up.
Leterrier gives us a pretty interesting explanation of the major scenes from the trailer, which you can find HERE. Among the highlights are his description of the badass final scene: "This sequence [Hulk vs. Abomination] 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." And also, his explanation of why the advertisements have taken so long to get here: "Liv Tyler totally had a crush on James from JoBlo.com. When he spurned her advances she forbid we release the trailer on time. She would just sit in her make-up room listening to Michael Learns To Rock and making us promise not to release it."
