Ed & Liv & The Incredible Hulk
The premiere was last night… here are the two stars of the film on the green carpet – Ed looking hotter than he has since Salma Hayek and Liv bright in blue is total gorgessity. But… because she’s wearing a baggy dress, no doubt the dreaded dumb bumpwatch will begin anew.
In Hollywood, you are not allowed to wear anything less than skintight without being accused of being pregnant.
The Incredible Hulk opens on Friday. Ed, as you know, wrote the screenplay and clashed with the studio over how the film would be released. Marvel wanted a summer blockbuster – lots of action, formulaic in delivery. Ed wanted a more arty version with long ruminations on Bruce Banner’s inner struggle. The dispute went public a couple of months ago and, judging from Ed’s demeanor, has apparently since been resolved, perhaps on Ed’s side.
Word is he’s been downright jovial during press…not exactly his signature mood, though last night he said he’d yet to see the final cut.
There seems to be consensus however that this iteration of Hulk is much better than Ang Lee’s which was rubbish.
Marvel has already had a monster hit this season with Iron Man. Will be interesting to see if they can make it two in a row this weekend.
