A Couple of Set Reports from the HULK, and... a cooool link!! UPDATED!! Official Quicktime HULK Teaser!!

Father Geek Here... While Harry's doing some filming in New York City this week clear across the country in beautiful old San Francisco they're in the middle of shooting the HULK. I received a couple of set reports last night soooo I thought I'd share them with all of you...But first there is this link you may want to follow...

just this: Just Click Here for a Hulky Teaser

Call me Elephant Man and Thanks, man!

Abraços; Cinema em Cena

Hey, everyone. "Moriarty" here with some Rumblings From The Lab.

Looks like Universal not only premiered the HULK teaser on ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT this evening, they also went ahead and made it available online in loverly QuickTime glory. CHECK IT OUT RIGHT HERE!!

Father Geek back, now here's those set reports...

Hey Guys....

I have been reading AICN for years and now I can contribute. They are shooting The Hulk a few blocks up from my office and I have a report....

The neighborhood is Sansome and Vallejo streets, Near the base of Coit Tower, just above Downtown.

Monday - Ang Lee is wearing his uniform (three days so far), a hooded blue Tisch sweatshirt and blue/orange (Broncos?) cap. He is an animated and energetic presence, pantomiming actions and events for the stunt players. Cable car knocked almost on its side, black Volvo driven by an old lady smashes into it and then a silver sedan T-bones itself into the Volvo. A bunch of choir girls are on the cable car and one nearly falls out into harms way.

Tuesday - Same scene as before, but now there is a trail of toppled cars running up the hill perpendicular from the intersection with the cable car accident. Two big blue SWAT vans arrive and a bunch of cops in BDUs with semi-auto rifles Hup-Hup-Hup out and up the hill along the trail of destruction.

Wednesday - We at the top of the hill finally, more cars rolled over on top of each other. Blue sedans with Fed Gov plates arrive with tall dudes wearing shades and bad gray suits. The Army arrives in a few Deuce and a Halfs and humvees. Sam Elliot is there, looking military with pressed tan cammo togs and black beret. Jennifer Connelly is skinny as can be, wearing dark blue denim shirt and jeans. She is coming down a stairway from a park like path, approaching the Hulk. The Hulk will be HUGE, given the dimensions of the silhouette on a retractable pole stand in. The head is the size of a manhole cover, and he stands 15-20 feet tall. The scene ends with amazed troops witnessing the Hulk shrink back in to Banner. Eric Bana is no Lou Ferrigno, but he is bigger than you may think. He stands naked and rigid, then crumples to the ground as Jennifer runs to his side.

The crew is super nice and let us stand as close as we can without our reflections showing in on camera windows. The keep us informed and entertained during the long setups. Big Tall red head guy and the Guy with the fleece vest and black cap with yellow logo are the best. I am Rick@talkwire.com if any crew want to give me a tour of the set this week.

Father Geek back for a moment to introduce our second report from San Francisco...

Just want to pass along some images I took in of The Hulk filming in San Francisco downtown.

The location is Samsome and Vallejo streets on Wednesday morning 5/1. An extra I spoke to told me they already shot the car crash scene 2 days earlier with people flying out of the cable car. The street was supposed to be heavily damaged. I guess they will create that later in CGI.

There were a lot of plain cloth polices, SWAT and military men standing around waiting. A helicoptor was also around although I'm not sure why since it was pretty high up all the time.

On top of the hill on Vallejo street you can see several cars parking and some pedestrians. A few minutes after I got there, a yellow VW van came out from the corner, flipped and plowwed into the parked cars causing them to tumble down the hill while the pedestrians ran for their lives.

I believe there will be a low flying helicoptor shooting today (5/2) around this area.

The next street after Vallejo is Green. Wonder if they will take advantage of that street name.

Couple of blocks away on Broadway I spotted a public parking lot with a paper sign at the entrance. It said "Big Green Parking. Residential only with valid pass". It even has a shuttle service around the corner. Coincidence?

    The trailer would had been alot cooler with the incredible hulk

    by Steal_Dragon

    Also another scary thing is that a naked hulk is on the loose, couldn't they put Eric Bana in some pants, come on.

  • May 2, 2002, 10:12 p.m. CST

    I'm sure Ang Lee is saving that for the ending.

    by PoshKittyKat

    Eric Bana as Bruce Bann-ah hitchhikes away from Betty, General Ross, and everything else, as the sad walking away theme from The Incredible Hulk plays. He has quelled the beast... but for how long? I'm welling up just thinking about it.

  • May 2, 2002, 10:14 p.m. CST

    "Jennifer Connelly is as skinny as can be."

    by PoshKittyKat

    Damn.

  • May 2, 2002, 10:46 p.m. CST

    I guess it's okay if he enjoys it while Hulked-out...

    by PoshKittyKat

    ... but he has to feel remorse as soon as he's back to being Banner, right? I guess it's like when a guy is really aroused and does stupid things, and regrets it the next morning. I sure hope the Hulk doesn't get aroused and do stupid things. Yeesh!

  • May 2, 2002, 10:58 p.m. CST

    "I like it"

    by Hostile_17

    What's up with that line? Didn't Bruce Banner NOT enjoy becomming the Hulk? And yeah, I would've liked to hear "The Lonely Man" theme from the TV show Hulk, that's the saddest ending and saddest song to anything ever...lonely dude walking down an empty dust road that just goes on and on and on...and also, when Hulk is in San Fransisco, he should flex his 24" pythons, the largest pythons in the world, tell the choir girls to say their prayers and take their vitamins and also do the hand to the ear thing so he can more clearly hear the terrorfied people scream at him in fear. But then I guess instead of "The Lonely Man" they should play "I am a Real American" or even better "I want To Be a Hulkamaniac" Hulk Hogan rapping about being good to people and saying your prayers and lifting weights...FUNNIEST SONG EVER!!!

  • May 2, 2002, 11:06 p.m. CST

    AND ALSO...

    by Hostile_17

    ...If Hulk doesn't have his purple pants on when he's out and about hustling at the docks or jumping on small babies, you'll be able to see his super-huge gargantuan Hulk junk and that's just really sad. That's just expensive CGI Japanese cartoon porn. I wonder if when Hulk "Hulk's out," he gets so excited that he just wants to kick his mom right in the face. That would be awesome, and by awesome I mean totally sweet! Maybe that's why he said "I like it." cause he knew he was going to go out and kick some pirates or leprechauns right in the balls or something. Oops, gotta go, HBO has strippers TV right now! Sweet!

    THE HULK likes it. Get it???

    by Kikstad

    The Hulk always liked being the Hulk. It's only when he turned back to "puny Banner" that he hated/regretted becoming the Hulk. He's like an addict. The line fits.

  • May 2, 2002, 11:51 p.m. CST

  • May 2, 2002, 11:53 p.m. CST

    It's also psychological

    by Kikstad

    Banner hates the anger and destruction that the Hulk causes, so after he changes back to human form he always seems to be in denial -- it was the creature who did all this damage, it was the monster who unleashed all this rage, "I must find a cure and stop the Hulk" -- when in fact he IS the Hulk, the Hulk is him, and he LIKES being the Hulk subconsciously. While he's the Hulk, he loves the strength, he loves the power, he loves to smash anything and everything, and most of all he HATE "puny Banner," who of course IS the Hulk and the Hulk is him. Brilliant. It's in the comic and it's in the TV series. This isn't anything new.

    HULK

    by Batman_9

    the teaser was much better than i expected. i have mixed feelings about this one. i'm a fan of the television series...as a matter of fact...i've only read a couple of the comics. the hulk i grew up with was a little more realistic i guess. however...i am looking foward to a 9' tall monster who can leap 3 miles and cause earthquakes when he lands. but the movie sounds kind of stupid to me. i mean...the whole david banner being absorbing man and bruce banner not being the only hulk and junk. the teaser is one of the best teasers ever though. reminds me a lot of the ones for GODZILLA. although i enjoyed that movie...i hope HULK turns out to be more serious. its much more dramatic material i believe. the "i like it" line is also misunderstood. i was wrong about it. the teaser does make clear that bruce banner fights the hulk...and that the hulk "likes it." i guess ang lee is a good enough director to pull this off. RIDE WITH THE DEVIL was great and CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON had some good fight scenes...but the rumors i've read about the HULK script sound pretty cheesy.

Grrrr hehehe Hulk rules i love the comics, and it actually blew me away to see that there are "other" versions of Hulk (whichto me, didn't make much sense) Just how they will be presented in the film..well i'd like to see it happen. I mean a green hulk with all his strengths with the smarts of Banner....oh my garters and stars. Hey and there should be a poll to see if Ang will listen and get the TV Hulk theme in the movie somewhere, now there's a song that withstand the test of time and can make the burliest of men cry. i know i did as a kid when i saw...*sniff*....banner hitchiking to his.....*sniffle, snort* next location *sob!!* it's so saaaaaaaaad *blubbler sniffle* I need a snapple

    I want to see this more than a stupid old Hulk movie. And I don't want some lame Hollywood/WWF girl to play the part...I want an unknown who is pretty and can act. I hate people who think wrestlers can act. I hate people who think famous people can act too - there is a huge difference between "celebrity" and "actor." And that is why these Marvel movies are working, because they are getting actors. The Daredevil movie will tank just because they have a Hollywood name in it - mark my words. It will be the one that sucks.

    I'M THE ONE AND ONLY 'HULK' BROTHER

    by HolywoodHoganNWO

    Listen up here, brother. WWF World champion Hulk Hogan here, dudes. I've been working out, beating the taste out of HHH's mouth, beating up the Rock (he got lucky at 'Mania, brother), and doing the best I can to wring Vince McMahon's checkbook dry, brother. Hall and Nash are now lost (***out of character comment*** Nash is back to his "Big Lazy" wrestling style), and WHAT IS THIS GARBAGE ABOUT THE INCREDIBLE HULK? I AM THE REAL HULK, BROTHER? Does that green tub of garbage say his prayers???!!! Eat his vitamins????!! How often does that "greeeeeen machinneeee" do 'roids, brother? How often does that impostor Hulk crank up Andre the Giant before over 93,000 screaming fans and send him crashing down to earth, brother??! How often has that green mess taken down Randy Savage, One Man Gang, King Kong Bundy, the great Terry Funk? ME, THE REAL HOGAN, BROTHER, I DID THOSE THINGS! Now that Goldberg got out from under his AOL Time Warner contract, bring him on, brother! Hollywood Hogan needs him for Summerslam. One more payday, brother. WHATCHA GONNA DO WHEN THE REAL HULK RUNS WILD ON YOU????!!! (Notice: This poster is not a shill for Vince or your usual pro wrestling sites).

    "You wouldn't like me when I'm Ang Lee."

    by Drak_Tanner

    That works on SO many levels!

  • Those of you who actually read the talkbacks may have noticed my vehemently expressing my unfathomable rage at what this movie is turning into. But I have had my fair share of humble pie in the past, and goddammit if I might not have to eat it again. The David Banner, Absorbing Man shit still bothers me, as does the idea that Banner's condition has nothing to do with his own actions, but that teaser was pretty frickin cool. Plus, its good to see another Aussie boy made good; I found an Eric Bana sketch comedy CD from the early 90s at a second hand record store the other day, and stood for a while musing about how a second-rate Aussie comedian from a third-rate Aussie comedy show could become such a bad motherfucker. Watch out for Joel Edgerton, another local boy. He's playing Owen Lars in AOTC, and he's my pick for the next big Aussie Hollywood success. On a slightly more apprehensive note, I just hope we don't have to see the Hulk's wang. I mean, really. Just have the purple pants inexplicably appear every time he changes, as a weird post-modern nod to the comics. Or have Reed Richards drop by and give Banner some boxers made of that crafty Unstable Molecular Fabric shit. I always wanted some of that.

    KingKong33, you should be glad Cage never signed on . . .

    by Rain_Dog

    cause the fucking movie never would have been made then. Nic Cage is the kiss of death for superhero flicks. Superman, Constantine and Ghost Rider were all supposed to be vehicles for that balding "method" hack. Not that that's a bad thing, as he would have been diabolically awful in each and every one of those roles. Who the fuck thought it would be a good idea to cast him as John Constantine? It'd be a bit like casting Paul Bettany as Orson Welles. I swear, I've never been so angry as I was when I found out that was the case. And I get angry a lot. Thank your chosen deity that talentless fuck Tarsem backed out and the whole thing fell through.

    Its about fucking time

    by Mr Chuff

    i smell a whiffy wind of change here....it seems that some of you slow-assed muff-divers have actually gotten round to watching "Chopper"...Like a lot of films that are featured on this site I have kept one eye on "The Hulk" and for a while these talkbacks were just FULL of people going "who the fuck is this Bana guy and is he big enough to play Hulk" and other tedious shite...this teaser? Its cool but I've never been a fan of teasers. Its just annoying foreplay with no chance of full penetration, let alone clean-up. I'm just a tad worried becasue for some reason I just CANNOT imagine what the actual Hulk will look like on screen. I'm sure ILM will do as good a job as they can seeing as they've been trying to perfect the Hulk movement for years (watch the docu on The Mummy DVD and you can see hieght ratios stuck to the wall in the background). And by the way....does anyone have a DOWNLOADABLE version of this so I can keep it for my very ownsome? I just wanna play it to my nephew coz he'll piss his pants with excitement tonight....:)

    mirrors

    by rev_skarekroe

    From now on all Marvel movie trailers must feature first person voice over narration and prominent scenes of the hero looking in the mirror. Even Daredevil, although he'll actually be facing the wrong direction. sk

  • Pretty amazing i tell you. ILM have been HARD at work on this for a while, anything less then a photo realistic hulk will instantly look cheesy (giant green skinned man?). This isn't your spaceships or monsters, the hulk has a huge possibility of being pure corn or pure gold. It seems people dismiss CGI rather easily, though there is a reason CGI is still expensive too this day- as it takes alot of bloody skill and time. The idea of a photo realistic HULK smashing the streets up boggles the mind. (though then again, the stone troll scene in FOTR was a masterpiece)

    HULK Smash Puny Parker!

    by Son Of Batboy

    That was friggin' cool!!! Ang Lee will deliver one helluva film and not some lame-ass video game with scenes ripped from far better superhero movies. As for the Bixby series I always thought the opening was one of the coolest of any TV series. That speedy piano intro with the flashing red ANGER zooming out to DANGER sign. Mr. Voice saying "Dr.David Banner, physician, scientist." Banner sitting in that high-tech Kraftmatic adjustable. Then Banner is changing the tire in the rain, it slips and he gets reeeallly pissed off. Shit, we've all been there. Then the classic Mr. McGee line and then the huge explosion with that monster fireball and we see the HULK tipping over flaming debris looking for Banner's wife. Then comes the sad HULK theme with Banner visiting his own grave and that final split image of Banner and our favorite jolly-less green giant. Friggin' Great.

    by Homer Jay

    This teaser is PERFECT. I had serious doubts about this movie after hearing about the "Hulk Dogs" and Pa Banner as The Absorbing Man. This teaser has put that all to rest in a period of about a minute. Perfect music, perfect speech (yes even the "I like it" line), and that ROAR. I want to see this NOW.

    Naked Hulk

    by Homer Jay

    If we really want this to translate well to the screen and keep the Hulk as big as he is in the comics, he will HAVE TO be naked. He can't change into this 10ft goliath and then all of a sudden be wearing purple pants everytime. No pants are big enough to fit the Hulk's legs unless Lee decides to make him all upper-body like that "How Much Ya Bench" SNL skit. It will be very interesting to see how Lee and the boys at ILM pull this one off. Maybe they keep his gentalia the same size so it's lost in his massive musculature?

    Disappointed...

    by rogerconnery

    Feeling like I just watched a Gilette For Men commercial, i can't help but feel a bit disappointed by the casting of "Eric Bana" (who??) I know, I know... it's the old "we wanna see Bruce Banner as Bruce Banner and not some 'famous guy' playing Bruce Banner"... blah, blah, blah. But still, Bana is just a little too... what's the word? "Average, good looking white guy". I mean, I can name 2 dozen actors that look just like him in Hollywood. Why not have someone more unique? A character actor, perhaps? Tim Roth? Steve Buscemi? Don Cheadle? Willem Dafoe (ha!)? Why cast this Will&Grace guy...?

  • May 3, 2002, 1:57 p.m. CST

    RE: RogerConnery

    by virkku

    Well, that's exactly what Bana is: A CHARACTER ACTOR. That's why he was chosen not for his looks, but for his acting ability. Bana is able to transform himself to play whatever is required from him. In the teaser he looks like a slightly geeky everyman. That's pretty much what Banner should look like. The important question is that can he PLAY Banner? The answer is most likely a big YES. Check out his previous films. The guy has an amazing talent.

    Jennifer Connelly is beautiful both thin and voluptuous

    by Hawq

    But if I had to choose, I would take the voluptuous Jennifer. I must take this opportunity to proclaim, once again, that Jennifer Connelly is the most beautiful woman alive. I wish she had played Arwen in LotR. I'm sure if I post enough times, someday she will contact me, so we can fulfill our destinies.*** I like the house in the teaser- thinking about converting the front of my house to have a similar look.*** Why must they use the 80's-comic-book-nuclear-green for the Hulk's skin color? Why not choose something more natural, like a darkish frog-green?*** I know how the movie ends: Bruce figures out that if he pelts himself with Tachyon particles, ala Star Trek, he will be instanly cured! His giant green hulk-schlong will of course be preserved, ala Young Frankenstein. Tachyon... the new wonder particle!

  • May 3, 2002, 3:28 p.m. CST

    My thoughts on the teaser...

    by CoolDan989

    First of all, The Hulk is supposed to go off in periods of heightened emotional stress, so I hope this scene from the teaser isn't in the movie, because I highly doubt looking at yourself in the mirror would cause emotional stress (unless you're ugly...lol). I think Bruce thinks it's scary that he likes losing control, because the damage he does when he does lose control is the scary part. He doesn't want to hurt or kill anybody or destroy anything, he just wants to deal with his anger the only way he can. The real Bruce Banner is the total opposite of The Hulk, and that's what I think the sad thing is about it. (By the way, after what happened in the teaser, I hope Bruce Banner has homeowners' insurance...lol)

  • May 3, 2002, 3:32 p.m. CST

    Oh, and another thing...

    by CoolDan989

    I think if this scene does appear in the movie, the towel on Bruce before he turns into The Hulk probably will stay on. I mean think about it...someone as unrefined as The Hulk wouldn't stop to cover his crotch with his hands and blush! And nudity in The Hulk is not a good thing, because this movie has to be PG-13 or it would tank at the box office. Or, what the hey, they may just make Bruce's crotch disappear when he turns into The Hulk (hey, this is still comic book land...lol)

    If your censorship idea were to become a reality, wouldn't they have to call him "The Tiny Hulk"? lol...(And he'd probably smash a few buildings in a fit of anger that Jennifer Connelly won't sleep with him)

    I SEE HULK! READ THIS!

    by S.A.R.H.

    I swear to god- if you frame step through the exploding wall sequence- you can clearly make out hulk coming through the wall, albeit as smoke. Before you dismiss this- remember that there are certainly CG models in various states of production of hulk right now, so using an existing model as a template for a particle system (smoke) would not be a stretch. Hulk comes at camera in a crouch and then spreads arms out. It's there- no shit.

    Spiderman

    by DrDestructo

    Just saw Spidey and they did indeed show the Hulk teaser in front of it -- AWESOME with big screen/surround sound and a HUGE audience response. Lots of people gasped and murmured about how they didn't even know a Hulk movie was being made! I think the buzz is going to start building...

    Hulk Ass

    by DrDestructo

    By the way... people keep commenting on whether or not they are going to see some Hulk penis when the movie comes out... While they can probably come up with a way of using creative camera angles to avoid that, how are they going to keep from prominently showing Hulk's mighty bare buttocks???

    The Hulk will not be nude, you crazy horny bastards

    by Kikstad

    I still think we'll see the Hulk look different every time Banner changes. The first time, I bet he'll probably look a bit greys and pretty human -- then next he'll probably look like a big musclebound guy like Lou Ferrigno (but super-steroid size) -- then each time after that he'll just be bigger and meaner. As for his clothes, I'm sure they'll think of creative ways to keep his pants on. For example if the teaser scene is really in the movie, the towel will probably miraculous stay on and look like a Tarzan-loin-cloth. In other scenes, Banner will probably be wearing sweats or doctor's uniform pants or other attire with "stretchable" waistlines -- everything will rip but the bare essentials will miraculously still be covered -- just like in the comics. The Hulk will not be Godzilla sized, so we'll have to suspend our disbelief and just assume that the panys/shorts/pajamas etc. stay on. All you horny toads hoping to catch a glimpse of the Hulk's big green naked ass are out of luck.

  • I see no inconsistancy if this scene is from the actual movie. Maybe he had a very bad nightmare, woke up, took a shower, trying to get it out of his mind, trying to control his feelings, trying to stay calm, but eventually, he can't hold back anymore -- the more he tries to fight it, the more anxious he becomes, until he finally Hulks out. I wish they'd do the same eye-effect they did in the TV series. That was cool shit. And some of the best transformations from the TV show were the "delayed ones" -- Banner gets upset, we think he'll turn into the Hulk, but he fights it, but his still upset, we think he's under control, we think he beat it this time, but NOPE, we were wrong, he loses control, the eyes turn whitish green and here comes the HULK!

    WHAT'CHA GONNA DO HOLLYWOOD, WHEN THE MOST AWESOME FORCE IN

    by ULTRA WARRIOR

    Since my days as a child, I have ALWAYS liked the character of the HULK. He wasn't your typical Super Hero. If you can even call him that. He is a creature. A Monster. A child. Wanting one thing & one thing alone. To be Left Alone. Of course that never really happens for him & people have to pay because of it. The story of the Hulk is very compelling & I am very interested in how they handle it in this movie. I don't want to see Banner become the Hulk due to getting a does of Gamma rays from sitting in a Dentists chair. Whoever the idiot was that thought up that idea needs to be put to death. I want to see his REAL beginnings come to life on the big screen. Most of these types of movies center around a Hero & a villain. The Hulk can be both....but if there is to be a villain or villains involved in this movie, let it be his greatest rivals. The Leader, The Abomination, etc. Don't create some bullshit villain that would never have a place in the Hulks universe. If you do bring these villains to life, at the very least keep them looking pretty much the same as in the comics as possible. No one wants to see more idiotic costumes like the Robotic Green Goblin. As far as the trailer goes, it was very exciting. Even though nothing was really shown. If I see something that doesn't even resemble the Hulk in this movie ( Much like that lame ass creature that TRI STAR tried to put the GODZILLA label on ) I will be totally pissed. Bring us what we want to see. The HULK, not some creature you WANT to call the Hulk. By the way The THING is the Hulks Bitch.

    HULK STORY ALL WRONG!

    by arnoldsback

    What is it with the hulk.I mean watching the TV series with Bill Bixby,all David Banner wanted to do was to get rid of the hulk,each week he would try to track down away to cure himself,he hated having the Hulk inside him,it was his bain. So can anyone tell me,knowing this why David Banner would experiment on his son when all his life he was trying to get rid of the Hulk.It just does not make any sense!!

    OMG! IsLee And Company Basing This Movie From The Hulk TV Show?

    by The Founder

    Please say it isn't so???? That show worked for tv, but they are going to have to stick with the comic origin. I know marvel is not letting them due that??? Bruce is the Hulk due to genetics that he inherited from his father. Don't tell me his father is going to be David Banner from the tv show, and he's had a son, and Bruce is the son, and he is the Hulk for this reason? If this is true, what the FUCK is Ang Lee doing? I know Marvel is not letting them do this.

    Man, you obviously have not seen Eric Banas work before or the unanimous praise he has received for Chopper and Black Hawk Down. You must live in a very small world! Eric Baba who?... ha ha ha how ignorant.

    Hulk Naked: HAIR?!

    by 11D7

    Let's think about this for a second. I have seen the Hulk's look change very drastically over the years in the comics, and now Hollywood, with the help of CG Technology, can finally create a character that is more biologically natural. Bear with me. In the teaser, we see the eye, and skin turn green. But we also see his eyebrow grow THICK BLACK HAIR, where there was a 'normal' eyebrow before. Is it possible that the filmmakers have decided to take that concept and duplicate it all over his body? I'm talkin' Chest Hair, Leg Hair, Back Hair and perhaps even - dare I say - CROTCH HAIR. Now, if the Hulk grows in 'all' areas, a thick coat of black hair might just preserve his modesty. (Until he sees Jennifer Connely that is!) Think of how a Silverback Gorilla looks, and you may have a better idea of what I'm trying to convey. Just a thought. -Thomas

    I was at the Hulk set too, they buzzed the hill with low flying

    by charliechaplin

    a friend and I were driving in San Francisco, trying to find parking, on a hill in North Beach, and these hellacopters were swooping and hoovering a couple blocks over,I remembered reading in the paper that they were doing Hulk filming on Telegraph hill, so when we finally did find parking, we walked over and watch. We were quite disapointed, that they was no Big Green to be seen, just a crew guy holding up a pole with a piece of cardboard in the shape of Hulk's head stuck to the top. Pretty lame. I think that big blockbuster movies have become way too reliant on CGI. Its almost like procrastinating,"eh, we'll have the computer geeks stick it in later", rather than actually endeavoring to commit spectacle onto film. Case in point, in the new Star Wars films, in many (most) cases Lucas hasn't even bothered to build sets and instead he has his actors acting in front of blue screens to characters that aren't there, and then has his computer whiz animators fill in all the details, but utimately the products suffers, the acting is stiff, the movie looks half cartoon, the fanboys rebel. Anyway,tirade aside, they did have some cool sets on the streets, cars flipped over and smashed, a cable car digging into the pavement (the upturned pavement is hollow and really light, I think it is made of plastic), a VW van turned on its side (more fake crumbled pavement), military vehicles, fake police vans that look more like something in a comic book than actual police vans (the paint is too fresh and vibrant, the wording to large and clear "SAN FRANCISCO POLICE"). Its pretty cool that let people walk through and watch, me and my friend could just walk around the sets, touching things, and goofing around, as long as we didn't stand near where they were filming. I look forward to seeing hellicopters, smashed cars,vans and trolly cars, and lots of fake pavement once the movie comes out. (It was weird that the same day I checked out the set, I saw the "spiderman" movie, which had a trailer for "Hulk", I thought, this is crazy there not done with the movie yet and already they are hyping, its not even going to be out till next year.)
