Honest Trailer Released For Marvel's The Incredible Hulk

With Avengers: Infinity War coming out this week, Screen Junkies decided to do an honest trailer for Edward Norton's The Incredible Hulk. This was the Marvel movie that came out right after Iron Man and before Marvel Studios knew where they were headed. The movie is part of the McU, but in a way it also feels like the one movie that just doesn't belong because the events of it don't really matter in the McU. The one thing that it really did was introduce William Hurt's General 'Thunderbolt' Ross to the McU. Regardless of the mess that it turned out to be, I still actually enjoyed the film for what it was.

As you might imagine the guys at Screen Junkies had a lot of fun tearing into this movie in their latest episode of Honest Trailers. What did you think of The Incredible Hulk when it was first released?

'Brokeback Mountain' Writer Sets Record Straight on Joaquin Phoenix Casting

'Brokeback Mountain' Writer Sets Record Straight on Joaquin Phoenix Casting
The dust has yet to settle on a bit of back and forth over Brokeback Mountain casting.

Rambling Reporter was on the scene March 28 for a double feature at Santa Monica’s Aero Theatre when the Ang Lee-directed love story and Jonathan Demme’s Philadelphia shared the historic marquee. During a Q&A with Oscar-winner Diana Ossana (who was front and center next to Philadelphia’s Ron Nyswaner), Ossana noted how difficult it was to find actors who would commit to the 2005 film known around town as a “gay cowboy” project.

Though she only mentioned directors such as Edward Norton and Joel Schumacher,...

The Incredible Hulk Honest Trailer Remembers Marvel’s Forgotten Film

One of the earliest Marvel Cinematic Universe installments, The Incredible Hulk, receives the Honest Trailers treatment ahead of Avengers: Infinity War’s release. Much has already been said about 2018 being the 10-year anniversary of the McU, as the whole franchise started back in 2008 with Iron Man. However, that origin story wasn’t the only Marvel movie to hit theaters that summer. Just one month after Robert Downey, Jr. charmed audiences as Tony Stark, viewers saw Edward Norton play Bruce Banner in his first (and only) turn as the Hulk.

What Happened to Edward Norton’s Hulk in the McU?

So what Did happen to Edward Norton’s Hulk as far as the McU is concerned? No major franchise is without its casting hiccups. Sometimes an actor just doesn’t work out for the part that they were hired for. Other times, the franchise proves popular enough to keep going after the departure of a few key players. After all, nobody questions why Bond looks completely different every couple of movies. It’s even been seen that we all just accept at this point that any actor worth their salt will eventually take a pass at playing Batman. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has

Edward Norton on Milos Forman: 'An Infectious Optimist and Lover of Life'
Edward Norton, who starred in Milos Forman's The People Vs. Larry Flynt, penned a tribute to the director following Forman's death at the age of 86.

"Milos was one of my true artistic heroes," Norton wrote in a statement. "Not just because he was a great film director but because of his capacity to sustain an exuberant belief that individual human spirit can triumph over institutions of oppression and his conviction that art can and must play a role in that fight for the health of a society."

‘Isle of Dogs’ Making of: Puppets

Isle of Dogs is playing in limited theaters, but will be expanding nationwide this weekend. If you haven’t caught the flick yet, you’re in for a treat. While I wouldn’t put Isle of Dogs at the top of Wes Andersons filmography, the animation alone is worth the price of admission.

There were over 800-900 different characters in the film, with thousands of different faces needed for the puppets. That’s an impressive amount of work, and really makes you appreciate the craftsmanship and commitment needed to construct the puppets.

Check out the behind the scenes look at the construction of the puppets:

The official plot synopsis:

Isle Of Dogs tells the story of Atari Kobayashi, 12-year-old ward to corrupt Mayor Kobayashi. When, by Executive Decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump called Trash Island, Atari sets off alone in a

Brokeback Mountain Almost Starred Matt Damon and Joaquin Phoenix

Brokeback Mountain Almost Starred Matt Damon and Joaquin Phoenix
It was revealed during a recent screening of Brokeback Mountain that it was initially hard to find a director and actors to commit to the movie. Screenwriter Diana Ossana stated that actors would agree to the parts and then bail after about 6 months. Two names that she brought up that were attached for a while were Matt Damon and Joaquin Phoenix who would've starred under the direction of Gus Van Sant. Obviously, this version of Brokeback Mountain didn't come into fruition. Instead, Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal took on the parts while Ang Lee directed.

Diana Ossana said that a lot of people in the entertainment industry had a hard time with her Brokeback Mountain screenplay because it wasn't a traditional love story. Though the movie wasn't traditional, it was a critical and box office success, and gave Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger a huge boost to their careers. That being said,

Isle Of Dogs, 2018.

Directed By Wes Anderson.

Featuring the voice talents of Bryan Cranston, Koyu Rankin, Edward Norton, Bob Balaban, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Kunichi Nomura, Akira Takayama, Frances McDormand, Greta Gerwig, Scarlett Johansson, Yoko Ono, Harvey Keitel, F.

For his second stop motion adventure, West Anderson delivers a seemingly simple story of a young boy Atari (Rankin) searching for his lost dog Spot. After an outbreak of snout fever, all the dogs in Japan are sent to Trash Island and live in exile and eventually die. Whilst this is extremely dark, as with all Anderson films there’s a sense of whimsy and offbeat humour to accompany the material.

Chris Hemsworth’s Casting Convinced Marvel Thor Could Work

The Avengers scribe Zak Penn candidly reveals that he was initially skeptical about Thor’s chances of translating well on the big screen until he saw Chris Hemsworth.

Synopsis:

Set in Japan, Isle of Dogs follows a boy’s odyssey in search of his lost dog.

In such politically divided times, arguably the greatest accomplishment of Isle of Dogs (Wes Anderson’s second foray into stop-motion animation having previously directed 2009’s Fantastic Mr. Fox) is his blunt foreign-policy allegory regarding refugees by using man’s best friend as stand-ins. Everyone in the world may not swoon over dogs, but at the very least it is quite the challenge to find someone that actively hates their presence. Who

Review: Isle of Dogs (2018)

Twenty years in the future a “snout fever” outbreak in Japan has banished every sick dog across the country to “Trash Island” – a floating island of rubbish – and a young schoolboy Atari (Koyu Rankin) jets off to save his beloved pooch Spots (Liev Schreiber) in a whimsical and action packed stop-motion adventure.

Isle of Dogs is director Wes Anderson’s ninth film, and his second stop-motion feature, having brought to life Roald Dahl’s classic children’s book Fantastic Mr. Fox, in his own idiosyncratic and utterly precise style of symmetrically infused Parisian cinema, bagging him an Oscar nomination for “Best Animated Feature” back in 2009. But this time around, Anderson has sailed East to Japan and crafted one of the most ambitious films of his career, along with his own travelling ensemble of film stars, character actors, and even a musical icon.

Isle of Dogs Review

Did you hear the rumour about Wes Anderson taking another stab at making a stop-motion animated film despite the disappointing box-office returns of 2009’s Fantastic Mr. Fox? Well it’s rumour no more as the eclectic director has pulled it off once more and has delivered a miraculous film that brings all of his eccentricities into a tale of one boy and his dog.

Yes, man’s best friend is the subject of his latest endeavour which sees canines outlawed in Japan as fear grips the nation. All dogs are rounded up and sent off to an island off the coast, one usually utilised for the disposal of the mountains of waste from the surroundings vicinity. Atari (Rankin), devastated at being separated from his beloved friend Spots (voiced by Liev Schreiber) sets off to find him amongst the rubble with the help of a ragtag group of dogs, including Chief
