'The Hulk' Trailer

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
I havent seen Spider Man, but I heard this is the preview of The Hulk at the end:

<a href="http://www.apple.com/trailers/universal/the_hulk/" target="_blank">http://www.apple.com/trailers/universal/the_hulk/</a>

Looks pretty good, what do you think?

Looks interesting. Eric Bana was amazing in Black Hawk Down. I'd had never heard of him before, but I definitely look forward to watching his career.
And Jennifer Connelly, holy smokes, I'll watch anything that she's in!

What's cool is that the left-of-center directors are doing these films, with interesting actors. Spidey by Sam Raimi? Hulk by Ang Lee? Sign me up.

I'm so tired of the conventional Hollywood action hero that this is a real breath of fresh air.

Yes I agree Another Marvel movie that sounds like it will be pretty good is 'Daredevil' but I don't know anything on what it's about, or the comic. I have just seen a little of it before.

Edit: Also Marvel is coming out with 'Sandman' as a movie too.

I've never been a fan of the Hulk in any medium, but I'm looking forward to Daredevil.

I'm afraid it may be dead in the water at the box office, though. I think non-comic fans will see another red-costumed guy swinging around town and think "seen that."

The whole blind angle has always made DD really interesting to me.

Sandman is published by DC/Vertigo. I doubt Marvel would be involved in a movie of it.

I recently met with the doctor who'll be seeing me through my TBI, and the list of side-effects was something of a disappointment - hair loss, sore mouth, brittle nails... But what about the super powers?! I should perhaps smuggle in a spider, then force it to bite me afterwards?

Sounds like you could use some super powers right about now. I just took my first set of measurements for a TBI. Did you know we approximate you to be a box of water? Some places do TBIs with you in a box and toss in bags of rice. Where are you going for treatment? Sloan Kettering?

I don't think that is the one. That is the 'The Sandman'. On Marvels site there is a bio of a character called 'Sandman'. But I hope it's the movie on 'The Sandman' because I heard those comics are insane.

Yeah, I'll be at Sloan-Kettering. I'm not really looking forward to it. I get two sessions a day over four days. The water thing makes sense - we're mostly water, right? I guess the rice makes up for all the other bits.

Where are you working?

Rice ... water same thing

Twice a day is standard for TBI. It's rather simple. You just lay there. Then they turn you around and you lay there some more. It might be interesting to hear what you have to say about it. I don't interact with the patients that much so I don't know what they are thinking when we beam on. I've never been in the room with the beam on.

I was looking to get a job at Sloan Kettering but they took too long to get back to me and pay about $18,000 less than what I'm making now and you have to live in NYC (I think) where they knock the rent down to $1000. Wow thanks.

Yeah. Apparently I'm in the room all on my own, but get to see the doctor via a monitor, so I can pull faces.

I'll be sure to let you know. Probably I'll be thinking "Just how much of a look did they get when I climbed onto this gurney in my gown?".

I'll not be around for a while. This whole thing gets underway early in June, and I'll be in hospital for the following four to six weeks.

Heh. If money was an issue, I certainly wouldn't be living in NYC. My living expenses here are more than double what they were in CA. $18,000 is a heck of a difference though. Were the job specs very different?!

So you can look at a tv and see out of the room? That's interesting. All places have a tv monitor to see the patient but I've never heard of the other way around. Some patients act like they don't know we can see them. We can hear them too.

I doubt the doctor will be there for the procedure. TBI is a very simple procedure. All of the calculations are done by people like me. You just put the patient on the table against the wall, dial in the monitor units and beam on. There's not much to it at all. No reason for those meddling doctors to get involved.

I think the job is better. I'm at University of Michigan. It's smaller, more for me to do. They are committed to having me learn everything. My "boss" gives the board exams and tells me everything I need to know about that. I work late Monday through Thursday and they let me leave at 1:00 on Friday so I can drive back to Chicago where my wife is still living. The only thing that would be more ideal is if it was in Chicago and I had some time to do research.

I'll have to remember not to scratch my butt. Yeah, apparently some patients are more comfortable when they can see a human face, so there's a monitor for you to look at. It's probably a recording, just in case the radiotherapist(?) is running around in circles screaming because they set the wrong dose.

I didn't know the term, and didn't know the qualification the operator has, so went with a generic "doctor".

I think I'm correct in saying they'll also outline organ positions with a Sharpie.

I know the more serious side-effects are cataracts (Though they're usually easily fixed), a lower top-end with lung function, and possible heart and kidney issues in the future. That's the worst thing about this illness - the potential side-effects from the treatment make horrendous reading, even compared to the eventual effects of the disease if untreated.

That's good to hear. The extra time on Fridays must be a godsend. Were there many positions in Chicago available to apply to? Are you interested in continuing in research?

Does anyone know who will play "Hulk"? Lou Ferrigno was the "muscle counter part" to Bill Bixby. I did not see mention of another actor to play this part?

I thought the Hulk trailer was stupid...my take on it was...

...HULK FART! BLAM!

Anyway, it is cool that Hollywood is allowing directors such as Sam Raimi and Ang Lee to direct genres such as these. I guess you would have to thank Richard Donner or Tim Burton for that...

<a href="http://us.imdb.com/Title?0287978" target="_blank">But Daredevil is the movie I'm waiting for!</a>

...and keep on topic!

My friend met Kevin Smith...and he's not involved with the Daredevil flick...too bad. <img src="graemlins/oyvey.gif" border="0" alt="[No]" />

1) DON'T MOVE. We hate when you move.

2) Don't joke. It's happened. Most times we can fix it.

I guess some places do that. Not for a TBI though. All of your parts are getting radiation so it doesn't matter where they are.

Research. Yes. I can't wait. I may leave this job early because I want to get back to it. It's not going to take me two years to learn all this stuff.

foneroot,
Daredevil was a blind guy who kicked a lot of ass. Very cool...

I also heard a rumor of a Captain America movie... anyone heard anything on this?

Heh, I've already had this conversation with the doctor. "You'll be asked to stay very still". "Did I tell you that you'll have to stay very still"? "Some people have trouble staying still". Alright! Enough already! I'm not two. I can stay still for - oooh - minutes at a time!
[quote]<strong>2) Don't joke. It's happened. Most times we can fix it.</strong><hr></blockquote>
I've educated myself about my illness. I've read, I've asked questions. I'm aware of most of the facts. However, this is one of those times where I'd have preferred blind ignorance.
[quote]<strong>I guess some places do that. Not for a TBI though. All of your parts are getting radiation so it doesn't matter where they are.</strong><hr></blockquote>
I have some clarification. If there's associated problems with lymph nodes, then sometimes directed application is required. This isn't so in my case. I'll just be weighed and measured over the weekend before treatment starts.

I'm the same. A perpetual student, I guess. That's why I agreed to take on my current job when I'd already packed it all in to open up my own company. The lure of time and money for research products is too irresistible.

Getting things BACK ON TRACK (You deviant mods, you).

The incredible hulk was always one of my favs. Never a big fan of Spiderman, but Hulk is just crazy. I like crazy .

As for Sam Raimi, He still hasn't topped Army of Darkness. That's quality film, dude.

Hey, this is on track! I think it's important kids know that exposure to radiation doesn't always give you superpowers.

Um, okay, other than that, The Hulk sucks. It's just that whole Jekyll and Hyde thing, and Hyde in this case isn't nasty enough. The Hulk has lousy superpowers.

Spidey was always the coolest.

Total Body Irradiation. They zap you with lots of lovely rays to kill off your bone marrow before replacing it with (hopefully) healthy stuff.

Awww, well thank you spaceman_spiff. That would mean so much to me if I didn't know that you tried the same line on robo at the AI Christmas party. Amorph also claims you groped him in the Digital Hub forum, though I have a feeling it was perhaps just wishful thinking.

In radiation therapy theres always something "worse". Be glad it's not Total Skin Irradiation. Not that the treatment is hard but the cancer you have to have to earn a total skin irradiation is not fun at all.

Really now. You should know enough by now to take their stories with a grain of salt. Wasn't robo more than a little tipsy at that party? As for Amorph, well, everyone knows it's time to look for a graceful exit whenever he tries to tell you about his superpowers.

They've been shooting Daredevil in downtown L.A. for a few weeks now. My friend has a loft down there and they've been lighting up just the tops of the buildings in his area and shooting scenes.

Before he mentioned it, I had never heard of Daredevil. <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

Thanks for the info. He seems like a pretty lame character. Although if they got someone like Garth Ennis to write stories for him...

Ang Lee is gonna do the Hulk? Man, Marvel knows what its doing when hiring directors. Rami did the spiderman experience SO near to perfect IMO. It was like watching a comic book.

Ang Lee, thats a particularly appropriate name in this instance...
