I just saw the last few minutes of a film with Liv Tyler and Ralph Fiennes, not recalling ever hearing of a film with those two in it I looked up Liv Tyler on IMDB to try and find out it's name (turned out to be Onegin).
While looking through Liv's filmography I stumbled upon this film, from those creative geniuses in Hollywood.
A remake is one thing, but remaking a film after only five years??
Well it's basically a remake. Marvel didn't like the 2003 Hulk, so they decided to make a different one. It's not a remake so much as its a different part of the story...in an alternate dimension!!1one
It's most likely going to be bad, this much is for sure (although if there's an actor that could save it it's definitely Edward Norton). That being said, I don't care if they're making another version of The Hulk so soon. The first one was god awful and a disappointment even for the pre-lowered bar of comic book movies. I'd rather they admit that ****-up and move on rather that try to build on top of it or abandon a franchise with potential.
Yeah, apparently the idea behind this film is to make a "good" Hulk movie, instead of that bad one that they already made. Hey, Ed Norton has a good record as far as I know, so until I actually hear how terrible it is, I'll believe the movie has potential.
I agree about Edward Norton being one of the finest current actors, I also think that he's very well cast for the role. However, remaking a film while the original suckfest is still so fresh in people's minds is one of the riskiest things I can think of any studios doing in years. Fanboys aside, the average cinema goer that got burnt by the first one is unlikely to be rushing to the box office this soon. I am amazed that it got the greenlight in the first place.
