    Region 2 and region 4 get this box set for the hulk movie. it includes a third disc with the scifi channel special. this site has a picture of the box set. Hulk might not be a favorite movie for everyone.. there are a group of fans.. if you are not a fan.. please do not remark about you hating the movie. I would like to keep this civil... thanks for understanding. http://www.ezydvd.com.au/item.zml/224668

    Universal will be releasing a special 3 disc ultra-limited edition of summer blockbuster The Hulk this November 5th complete with exclusive prints and comics.
    While the first 2 discs will contain the same specifications as the regular special edition, this version will arrive with an extra bonus disc as well as some limited edition prints and a reprint of the Hulk #1 comic. Full specs for the extra disc and other included goodies can be can be seen below
    Hulk - The Lowdown - An In Depth Look Behind The Scenes Of The Movie - A 45 minute documentary hosted by Sam Elliot & Josh Lucas
    Limited Edition 'Money Can't Buy' Prints Of The Hulkified Scene - ‘You’re Making Me Angry’ Scene #84 interpreted from the screenplay by 4 Acclaimed Illustrators from around the World. The prints are contained within a silk covered booklet with an embossed front cover
    10 Limited Edition Superior Quality Prints - 10 Unique Pieces Of Storyboard Artwork, very high quality and detail
    The Incredible Hulk Marvel comic - Reprint #1
    Production Notes Booklet - Will include preparation artwork from the storyboard showing scenery and character development work

    I have no idea if this set is exclusive to the R4 market, but it certainly looks an enticing proposition. RRP is expected to be around the $90 mark.

    Which is about $48 USD. Not too bad, but I never saw the movie, so I'm not sure how good a deal that is. [​IMG]

    X-Men is my personal favorite so far, followed by Blade, Daredevil and then Spiderman. Overall, I think superhero movies are good popcorn flicks, but I just never got around to seeing Daredevil or The Hulk in the theater.

    For every action movie we see, I have to let my wife choose a romantic comedy. And we all know how many of those get released in the summer. [​IMG]

    hulk more like an art film like a beautiful mind then just your standard action movie.. people complained it was more drama then action. Its about fathers and their children. Its more of an adult movie then Spider-man. there are some action, just have to be patient.

    I would like the 45 minute BONUS DISC, but other than that, it doesn't make a difference to me.

    Yea, I was going to say no big deal since I saw that special but that "different illustrations" of the "you're making me angry" scene sounds amazing.

    Am I missing something ? Where does it say that this disc is coming out in R2 ? There's been no announcement of thsi that I've seen.

    If it's R4, we'd have to import and, at that price, our friends at Customs will be quite happy to slap on an extra tenner.

    Anthonys right,

    This disk hit a bit above the £18 threshold for us Brits and hence is taxable and service chargeable and hence silly price for an extra disc.

    www.blackstar.co.uk has a listing for the hulk box set. It doesn;t list the items that come with it like the region 4 has. I would assume its the same.

    It depends who you order from, Sean. For instance, the upcoming Fox Studio Classics box set (the one including SUNRISE) seems to be only available from Amazon. I've been hit more ordering from them than from any other company - I guess because their packages are pretty conspicuous. You'll mostly get away with discs that just exceed the £18 limit but I've found that box sets are almost certain to get hit.
    I got burned on WAR AND PEACE and THE HITCHCOCK COLLECTION to name but two.
    Since ordering from CDWOW, PLAYUSA and MOVIETYME I've had no problems. They manage to circumvent it somehow, and CDWOW offer to reimburse you for any duty you have to pay, which makes sense for everyone.

    BTW - the HULK box set is also listed at Amazon for £22.48 to pre-order. No specs either but it's probably the same set. Phew !
