I’m a little concerned about the lack of advertising about this movie, especially as it is due for release in a month or so. It doesn’t exactly fill me with a lot of confidence, especially when you compare it to the amount of advertising done on the Iron Man movie.
Is it because they knew Iron Man was worth the effort and Hulk isn’t? It certainly makes sense not to waste money on a product that is doomed to fail.
There was also issues with Norton (writer/star) and Marvel having different ideas about the movie. This was later settled with the following outcome:
“What people will see is Marvel’s cut of the movie. This is not the Edward Norton cut by any means. His opinion is their cut is valid because probably it’s going to make a lot of money. And, he recognizes that, if you’re a businessman, that makes sense. But he would have released something a little longer, a little more character driven.”
This could be good or bad. On one hand, Marvel could be editing out the garbage, or they could just be shortening the audeince’s agony. To me though it sounds like they are just chopping it down into something short enough for kids to focus on, seeing the amazing Hulk smash up a few things, just so they can release a Hulk toy and hope they get some sort of merchandise sales.
The trailer also doesn’t help me much. Infact it made me want to do a bit poo and rub it into my eyeballs. It really was that awful.
Anyway… What are your opinions on the (lack of?) events and promotion of this movie? Along with the uninspiring trailer. Do you think it will be atleast better than the last poor attempt?
