First ‘Hulk’ Trailer to Premiere Next Week
This news is not quite as good as actually getting to see the new The Incredible Hulk trailer today. However, at least there’s now an actual date you will see the trailer. According to an official release from Universal, that date is March 12th.
Here’s the pertinant details from that very press release:
The first teaser trailer for hotly anticipated summer superhero epic "The Incredible Hulk" will have its exclusive broadcast debut in a simultaneous "roadblock" on seven networks on Wednesday, March 12. This first opportunity to see material from the motion picture will be aired at approximately 9:56 p.m. EDT/6:56 p.m. PDT on MTV, MTVU, MTV2, VH1, Spike TV, Nick at Nite and CMT.
Not only will you get to see the trailer on all those TV stations, it will be posted on MTV.com afterward. It will also begin showing on March 14th in front of Neil Marshall’s Doomsday — which, in spite of its "borrowing" liberally from Escape from New York and Road Warrior, actually looks kinda cool.
For those of you not familiar with the story of this latest theatrical incarnation of the Hulk, it concerns scientist Bruce Banner (Ed Norton) who desperately searches for a cure to the Gamma radiation that’s poisoned him. On the run and in hiding, he’s pursued by the sinister General Ross (William Hurt) who wants to capture him and exploit the power of the Hulk for his own purposes.
But all bets are off when an even bigger threat appears: the evil and destructive Abomination (Tim Roth). Now, Banner must decide if his own life is worth saving or if he should unleash the Hulk, fight the Abomination, and save the world.
The Incredible Hulk hits theaters on June 13th.
