Edward Norton Hopes For Hulk Role

Edward Norton as Bruce BannerWill the third time be the charm for Marvel superhero the Incredible Hulk? Edward Norton thinks so.

The actor—who was believed to be unhappy with the final version of 2008’s movie about the green superhero, in which he played the title character and his alter ego Bruce Banner—says that he will happily appear in The Avengers, which unites Marvel Comic heroes Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and The Incredible Hulk, and is being planned for 2012.

Asked if he can see himself appearing in The Avengers, Edward said, “Yeah, oh yeah. The thing about Marvel‘s universe that’s fun is that it all cross-pollinates. Even when I was working on the script for The Incredible Hulk, I tried to plug in the whole Super-Soldier Serum from Captain America.”

Edward even hopes that the movie will see his character portrayed as the villain, fighting against the other characters: “He kind of was the villain, not in the books, but in the comics there was always a tension between the rest of the superhero community and he was always this problem. They treat him as this problem. I don’t know, I think that’s a fun way to go with it.”

Box Office Breakdown: High School Musical Makes it Two for Two

High School Musical 3

This past weekend, moviegoers showed very little interest in Halloween-themed fare. Despite several horror options, ticket buyers put a G-rated film on top once again.

Although Friday night was slow for cineplexes everywhere, theater attendance thankfully picked up by Saturday. And while there was tight battle for 2nd place, had an easy fight for #1. One week after its $42 million debut, the Disney feature added another $15.3 million to the bundle.

Coming in second was a movie on the opposite end of the wholesome spectrum. - a movie that narrowly escaped an NC-17 rating - pulled in just over $10 million during the past three days. That turnout placed the raunchy comedy amongst Kevin Smith’s highest debuters. (Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back earned $11.1 million in 2001 while 2006’s Clerks II raked in $10.1 million.)

Box Office Breakdown: High School Musical at the Top of the Class

High School Musical 3: Senior Year

This past week, the multiplexes had a little bit of something for everyone: politics, animals, music, dancing, thrillers, Oscar contenders and even horror. Not surprisingly, this meant a lot of dollars were shelled out in return.

As expected, the big screen debut of had tweeners (and their loving parents) all atwitter. Thanks to a $42 million debut, the G-rated film officially became the best musical opener of all time. (Mamma Mia! - with its $27.8 million - was the previous leader.)

Meanwhile, a film on the other end of the ratings spectrum was scaring up some decent dollars of its own. , which probably could have waited to premiere on Halloween, took in approximately $30 million over the last three days. Although it was pitted against the highly-anticipated Disney sequel, the movie carved out its own audience and raised first place-worthy numbers. Although the series is currently on its fifth life, the 2008 installment came within $4 million dollars of Saw III, the franchise’s best performer to date.

    Watch Fight Club in Two and a Half Minutes

    While I can’t say I’m blown over by the finished result, I have to appreciate that someone’s attempted to condense down to 2.5 minutes.

    But really - doesn’t Brad Pitt’s chest deserve at least 10 seconds?
