The Incredible Hulk Trailer

.  This is the movie that’s supposed to make us forget about Ang Lee’s 2003 mistake called Hulk

Unfortunately, I just found myself giggling after I saw the big, cheesy reveal. 

Question is:  Could they have possibly made the green guy look better?  After seeing movies like , have we come to expect too much from our ‘monsters’?

The Incredible Hulk comes to life this summer on June 13.

New Photos of Upcoming Hulk Movie

Nearly five years after Ang Lee’s disappointing abomination once referred to as Hulk, has given us all a new hope: .

With the help of Transporter director Louis Leterrier, Norton re-wrote Zak Penn’s (X-Men: The Last Stand, Fantastic Four) script, which was intended to be a sequel to Lee’s 2003 atrocity. Back with a better cast (, Robert Downey Jr., Tim Roth, and William Hurt) and a better director (let’s face it, Lee has done nothing noteworthy other than post-Hulk, Oscar-friendly Brokeback Mountain), the film is clearly going to be great.

Empire Magazine has released new photos of the movie, which is set to release in mid-June of this year:

This Week on HD DVD and Blu-ray: October 23, 2007

The Shining Blu-rayWhether you’ve made the choice and actually picked a side in this format war, one thing can be agreed upon by all sides—this is a good week for high-definition.

It so happens that Warner Home Entertainment has yet to pick a side in this battle of video/audio quality—a decision that, when the time comes, could end the war for good. For now, however, they are throwing down some pretty good releases to please everyone, and this week is no exception.

The late Stanley Kubrick, idiosyncratic director of some of America’s most cherished cinema, is honored this week with the release of a few classics in dual format—finally, we can all see Jack Torrance’s nose hairs as he axes the hotel door and screams his classic “Here’s Johnny!” After all, Halloween is quick approaching, and a high-def copy of The Shining might make the perfect late-night creepfest. And if horror is your bag, both formats have some decent titles this week. Check the full list after the jump.
