Louis Leterrier Talks ‘Hulk’, Plus Official Site Launched March 13, 2008 7:45 pm

Posted by Rosario T. Calabria in Movies, News, The Incredible Hulk.

Director Louis Leterrier spoke with Empire Online about the just-released trailer, and discusssed the action sequences, the new characters, the CG and more.  Plus, Universal Pictures and Marvel Studios have launched the official website for the film.”

Here are some highlights from the Empire Online feature:

“You’ll see Bruce Banner transform in minute three. (Laughs) Minute three! That’s what’s good about it and it was really important when I was accepting the movie. We’re not treating it as an origin movie but: Bruce Banner stepping into his chair and the gamma bomb and everything. He’s the Hulk already, with the Hulk within him, and you get to understand how he came to be in this situation, his struggle in life, the other characters surrounding him and the enemies that he deals with and fights with.”

“General Ross (William Hurt) has a great line in the movie: “Banner was an accident and something went really wrong — or really right.” He loves that thing and he wants to control it, to harvest it. He has another speech where he talks about the splitting of the atom: fire, the universe opens and there is a new force — and somebody has to step up to the plate and not cower away from this thing but grab it. He’s the Ahab of this story, this alienated guy craving that power. He’s alienated himself from the army and his family, because he’s obsessing about only one thing: the Hulk, the Hulk, the Hulk.”
