HULK

Hulk smash again! Hulk smash jet! Hulk fight helicopters! Hulk smash puny
dogs. Banner smash puny Talbot. Hulk smash ground so hard cars flip over!
RAAAAAARRRRH!

That’s right. The new “Hulk” trailer is up at Apple.com’s
QuickTime trailer site
. The new clip shows lots of cool clips of big green
wigging out and provides new insights into the plot of the movie. Here’re some
stills for those of you who aren’t up to the big download.






















As if Hulk wasn’t smashing enough in
the trailer, the CGI star of Universal Pictures’ upcoming blockbuster makes a smashing
cover model for the June/July issue of CFQ.
People complaining this guy looks “too cartoony” ought to click the
thumbnail at right for a close up look at the details on Doc Bana…er…the
Hulk’s face.

 

SOME TROUBLE OF A SErrIOUS NATURE

Comic creator and filmmaker Billy Tucci has announced plans to release his
award winning short film “some trouble of a seRRious nature” in a “Deluxe Diamond DVD
Edition” available exclusively through the Previews catalog. 

The DVD features two cuts of the movie, a festival cut and an extended
director’s cut with commentary. The disc also has deleted scenes, a memorial mini-doc on late star Joe
Tobul, special effects, pages from the comic book edition and more! 

The movie tells the hilarious
tale, set in WW2’s final days, of one unfortunate Corsair fighter plane and the
hillbillies who are determined to fly it. Limited to 5,000 editions, the DVD signed
and numbered by director Billy Tucci and comes in a full color shrink-wrapped
plastic case. The price is $24.99.

Also available will be the Deluxe Diamond VHS with many of the same features,
also priced at $24.99.

Diamond retailers will also have access to the “Any Damn Fool” DVD.
One free copy of this disc will be shipped for every 10 copies of the “some
trouble” DVD. “Any Damn Fool” is the hour-long documentary on the making of Billy’s
“some trouble of a SeRRious nature.” It
chronicles the trials and tribulations of a first-time filmmaker and his torrid
production schedule from “some trouble’s” earliest inception as a
1946 hoax letter to its award-winning debut at the Long Island International
Film Expo. The film includes behind the scenes, production footage, special
effects and interviews with the films cast and crew. 

 

X2: X-MEN UNITED

“X2: X-Men United” is already hearing the cha-ching of box office
registers. According to today’s Variety,
the movie has already opened in key international territories and rung up a
preview take of $8 million.

By weekend’s close, the movie will have hit 93 markets overseas.

However, if you want to see the movie, don’t look for it in-flight with
Boeing. The
Hollywood Reporter
reports that Fox and the aerospace company could not come
to “a satisfactory service arrangement” for putting Marvel’s Mutants
in front of travelers.

 

SMALLVILLE 

“Smallville” Tom Welling and Kristin Kreuk will be on the cover of the May 10 edition of
TV Guide. KryptonSite.com, the top
Smallville outlet on the Internet, has a nice picture of the new cover.

The site can also give you all the details (if you don’t mind spoilers) on
the season ender.
