Hulu Hosts ‘Howard the Duck’
Looking for something to do before school or work begins again? Well, Hulu has just added the reviled Howard the Duck to its list of free feature films. The live-action Universal film, starring Tom Robbins, Lea Thompson, and eight different guys in an expensive duck suit, was considered one of the worst films of the year when it was released in 1986 and remains one of the most awful adaptations from a comic book.
What is astonishing is that the film was produced by George Lucas from a script by the able Willard Huyck & Gloria Katz (American Graffiti). Lucas spent $10 million to make the film which earned a meager $16 million while making Howard’s creator Steve Gerber weep.
