DVD News:
Hulk Smashes Onto DVD In October
By Brian Jacks

09.15.03


While X2 won't arrive in stores until late November, comic book movie fans can get their hands on at least one of Hollywood's Marvel adaptations. Director Ang Lee's The Hulk will expand his bulk on October 28, 2003 with the release of the action adventure on DVD and VHS. And, interestingly, for the first time ever, audiences can experience both the film and the related video game on the same DVD. On the disc will also include a playable demo of The Hulk for Microsoft's Xbox videogame system.

Centering on one of Marvel Comics' most powerful characters, The Hulk is brought to life via groundbreaking 3-D animation from visual effects powerhouse Industrial Light & Magic and the formidable talents of Ang Lee (director of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), and stars Eric Bana, Jennifer Connelly, Sam Elliott, Josh Lucas, and Nick Nolte. The 2-disc special edition DVD release carries a suggested retail price of $26.98.

Exclusive The Hulk DVD, the demo provides one playable level for Xbox which showcases the title's fully interactive environments, and the awesome power of the Hulk. Picking up a year after the events of the film, the game follows the plight of troubled scientist Bruce Banner and his enraged alter ego, Hulk, as they battle against the terrifying forces of the Leader - a villain intent on using the Hulk's gamma energy to unleash a relentless army of gamma creatures on the world. Players can master two types of game play as either Bruce Banner or The Hulk as they battle lead characters from the film, familiar enemies from the Marvel Universe(tm) or new villains created specifically for the game.

The Hulk DVD delivers breakthrough special features, in keeping with the movie's astounding, never-before-seen technology. Still frames pieced together create a comic book feel to the live action as frames fill the screen and come to life when selected. Among the bonus features on the DVD
