Clutch Of Hulk Scenes Go Online
Incredible and, indeed, smashing!

27 May 2008  |  Written by Glen Ferris  |  Source: www.yahoomovies.com; www.aol.com, www.myspacetv.com, www.comingsoon.net

Just like Bruce Banner’s search to find a cure for his big, green, angry gigantism, we’ve been on a bit of a quest ourselves and have come up with a rather more successful result – a bunch of new The Incredible Hulk sneaky peeks.

First up from Yahoo Movies is a quick clip cribbed from the decisive smackdown between the Emerald Giant and his equally big-boned nemesis The Abomination which you can see here. Looking suitably punchy and fighty, we like the epic scale of the grudge match and the Hulk’s inventive use of a cop car as loaded boxing gloves. Considering the fact that it’s only a precursor to a mooted 26 minute-long final set piece, we’re fully expecting a whole bunch of stationary objects to be opportunistically used as weapons of mass destruction - bring it on!

Next, AOL has a scene in which Bruce Banner (Edward Norton), having been hunted down and trapped by General Ross’ (William Hurt) small army of locked-and-loaded soldiers, is irked enough to transform into his bad-tempered alter ego. You can see it here. MTV has a romantic interlude between Betty (Liv Tyler) and the Hulk that apparently follows, here. Only the HD link will work in the UK.

MySpaceTv is hosting the first fateful face-off between the Hulkster and a pre-Abomination Emil Blonsky (Tim Roth) who, in addition to handling himself impressively well in a tight spot, manages to piss off our marauding hero to dangerous new levels. You can watch that one here. MSN has more Blonsky vs Hulk, here, this time in a warehouse.

So, what do you think? Is The Incredible Hulk shaping up to be a genuine buster of blocks?

RE: looking crap!
The biggest concern I have is Universal releasing entire fights onto the web. Normally when a studio does this is because the film sucks and they are trying to get as much interest into the film before the reviews are out. One thing that got me very concerned is how weak the new Hulk is compared to Ang Lee version. Is this because of the upcoming spin off featuring other Marvel heroes working together to save the world? It would make sense to have the Hulk par with the other heroes and not More

After watching those aful clips that look like they've animated by a drunk CGI artist thats just emerged from a coma that he fell into in the early 90's. I've fully given up on this film now. Everything about it is just destined for disaster. I can see this being worse than Ang Lee's... sp; Once again, no More

omg!!
frankly this is going to be shit...the cgi looks terrible..i think filmmakers rely too much on cgi these days(george lucas are you listening).hell what about animatronics ?..they must be more advanced since dark crystal etc..why not use this technique instead?? or just paint hulk hogan green instead?or maybe just not bother making films about big green blobs!!

RE: Clutch Of Hulk Scenes Go Online
I am really looking forward to the flick. CGI looks pretty good considering they are trying to render a giant green monster to look as real and "human" as possible. I don't think you are gonna find better attempts anywhere and as someone said before some guy in green paint and bad hair running around is gonna look gay!   Thunderbolt Ross has always been one of the main nemesis' to the Hulk and it allows for the introduction of Blonsky and the Abomination quite nicely.

RE: Green with Envy
Looks good to me. I'm really looking forward to this now and I really wasn't a couple of months ago. With regard to Hughezy saying about the 12 rating, a lot of films get away with violence and that if it involves supernatural beings. I remember Brian Singer saying the fight between Wolverine and Deathstrike in X-men 2 didn't have to be cut much because even though it featured multiple stabbings they could just say 'They're mutants' and they got away with it. I imagine the same goes with the Hu More

Green with Envy
I still don't understand all these comments about the CGI for the Hulk being "unrealistic"... he's a ten-foot tall, green mutation of a monster... would you rather they brought back Lou Ferrigno, in which case you'd complain that they didn't use CGI and made it too camp?? There's no pleasing some people... this country! Personally I think it looks as good as its going to with current technology, so I'm pretty happy and excited for the film after watching these clips. Worry that the More

thought for a second the last line said "Is The Incredible Hulk shaping up to be a genuine buster of bollocks?" i hope not but hopefully we havnt had too many previews to spoil the film. Dont have to watch them i suppose! More

"Crime syndicate"? Ugggh
The Hulk does not "fight crime"! He isn't Batman, Spider-Man, or some other street-level hero, he's a big green monster! Personally I had very low expectations for this film but am liking a lot of the clips I see (the warehouse one especially). Really hope that the film's secret weapon is Norton - he has the potential to boss the role the same way Bale does for Bruce Wayne or Downey Jnr does Tony Stark. More

RE: lookng crap
I have to agree with Mr Chumba - the more clips/trailers I watch of the "Incredible Hulk", the more disappointed I am of the final film. It seems to be a substandard remake of Ang Lee's Hulk (but with worse CGI). It was a mistake having General Ross and the army as main villians again - they should of used a crime syndicate or some other group hunting the Hulk. More

RE: looking crap!
The CGI looks better now than it did on first showings and if the story is good enough you'll get caught up in the film and won't bother about it. It can't be any worse than Iron Man which was showy and polished but with little substance apart from a few good comedy moments and a dissapointing finale. Blonsky taking on the Hulk made me smile for all the right reasons and when Abomination was set upon by Hulk with a police car he looked a right evil bastard...HULK WILL SMASH!! More
