‘Hulk,’ ‘LXG’ and ‘X2’: Comics2Film wrap for May 27, 2003


The final countdown to “The Hulk” begins with less than four weeks
to go until big green smashes onto the big screen. Universal is pumping up
with some all-new content for fans to get excited about.

First up is the new “Origin of the Hulk” video clip, which gives
viewers background on the roots of the character. With commentary from Stan Lee,
James Schamus, Avi Arad,  Eric Bana, Gale Anne Hurd and Jennifer Connelly,
the clip traces the characters path from the minds of Lee and Jack Kirby,
through his popular TV incarnation, and on to this summer’s movie. Fans will see
a few new bits of film from the movie, as well as some bare CGI effects and lots
of previews of “The Hulk” video game.

Click on “The Movie” and then “Trailers/TV Spots” to find
“Origin of The Hulk.”

Next up on the site is the “Wish Fulfillment” TV spot promoting the
film. This new advertisement has been running on network television all weekend.
There’re just a few new snippets of Hulk-Smash action, but it’s still a cool
clip that focuses on the rush of being a giant force of nature. 

clips join the Stan Lee video interview on the site as well as the Eric Bana
text Q & A.

Finally, visitors to
can enter the Hulk sweepstakes and win a trip for four to Universal Studios Hollywood
or Universal Studios Orlando.

There’s a new poster there featuring the seven members of the League. Unlike
the previous poster, this one features an invisible Invisible Man and the
brutish Mr. Hyde in place of Dr. Jekyll.

Thanks to Movie
City Geek
for the lead.



While two movie characters claimed to be
“the one” this weekend, Morgan Freeman’s God won out over Keanu
Reeves’ Neo in the battle for the box office. 

Office Mojo
reports that “Bruce Almighty” was the champ this
weekend, giving fans the Jim Carrey they’ve been missing; the goofy, funny one.
“Bruce” took in an estimated $86 million plus over the long, Memorial
Day weekend.

The movie toppled “The Matrix: Reloaded,”
which took in over $45 million in its second week of release. That movie shed
about 50% of its audience from last week’s blockbuster opening.

X-Men United” is still box office force in it’s forth week of release. The
movie is hanging in at #4 (still trailing “Daddy Day Care”). The
Marvel mutants took home another $13 million in ticket sales this week bringing
its opening month domestic tally to $192 million. Could the $200 million mark
be just a week away?
