    The Hulk DVD Press Release Source: Universal Studios Home Video Tuesday,
    September 9, 2003

    The Hulk expands his bulk on October 28, 2003 with the release of the
    explosive action adventure on DVD and VHS from Universal Studios Home Video
    with an incredible industry milestone: For the first time ever, audiences
    can experience both the film and the related video game on the same DVD. The
    ground-breaking inclusion of Vivendi Universal Games' "The Hulk" for the
    Xbox(r) video game system from Microsoft creates a singular entertainment
    experience exclusively showcased on the DVD.

    Centering on one of Marvel Comics' most powerful characters, The Hulk is
    brought to thrilling life via groundbreaking 3-D animation from visual
    effects powerhouse Industrial Light & Magic and the formidable talents of
    director Ang Lee and stars Eric Bana, Jennifer Connelly, Sam Elliott, Josh
    Lucas, and Nick Nolte. The 2-disc special edition DVD release is priced at
    $26.98 suggested retail ($19.95 MAP) and the VHS sells for $22.98 SRP
    ($14.95 MAP). The pre-order close date is September 9, 2003 for the DVD and
    September 23 for the VHS.

    Exclusive to The Hulk DVD, the demo provides one playable level for Xbox
    which showcases the title's fully interactive environments, and the awesome
    power of the Hulk. Picking up a year after the events of the film, the game
    follows the plight of troubled scientist Bruce Banner and his enraged alter
    ego, Hulk, as they battle against the terrifying forces of the Leader - a
    villain intent on using the Hulk's gamma energy to unleash a relentless army
    of gamma creatures on the world. Players can master two types of game play
    as either Bruce Banner or The Hulk as they battle lead characters from the
    film, familiar enemies from the Marvel Universe(tm) or new villains created
    specifically for the game.

    The Hulk DVD delivers breakthrough special features, in keeping with the
    movie's astounding, never-before-seen technology. Still frames pieced
    together create a comic book feel to the live action as frames fill the
    screen and come to life when selected. Among the bonus features on the DVD:

    The Making of The Hulk - A featurette containing fascinating interviews with
    cast and crew and a behind-the-scenes look at the amazing action stunt work
    in the film.

    Enhanced Viewing - Viewers can access immediate information about select
    scenes to enliven their viewing experience as they view the film . A
    split-screen effect allows viewers to learn about 3-D technology allows 360
    degree still images of each scene where the Hulk appears to be viewed at
    will.

    Anatomy of the Hulk - ILM developed this exclusive feature in which a 3D
    Hulk model can be manipulated through the viewer's remote control. By
    clicking on various body parts, viewers can watch mini-featurettes of scenes
    containing footage and production stills that compare the Hulk's powers to
    an ordinary man.

    Hulkification- A fascinating look at different artistic conceptions of the
    Hulk created by diverse illustrators representing the Marvel Comics, Manga
    (Japanese) and European styles of animation rendering the same scene from
    the film in comic book form while matched with footage from the film.

    Other features include storyboards showing side by side comparisons with
    actual scenes from the film; a Digital Incarnations feature revealing the
    visual process of director Ang Lee in bringing the larger-than-life
    character to the big screen, including Ang acting out stunts in a motion
    capture suit and reviewing storyboards with artists; the remarkable Dog
    Fight feature showing how the scene was created from storyboards to filming
    the CGI to the finished scene and deleted scenes, audio commentaries; and
    "The Making of THE HULK" interactive game.

    Universal's marketing campaign for The Hulk includes a multi-million dollar
    national media campaign. The Hulk ads will appear in over five million
    Marvel and D.C. comic books in October.

    Adding to the campaign's visibility will be support from promotional partner
    Kraft Foods. Millions of packages will feature special offers ranging from
    cut-out trading cards and masks to $5 DVD rebates. Over 20 Kraft brands are
    participating, including such all-time favorites as Jell-O(r), Oreo(r),
    Ritz(r), Taco Bell(r), Tombstone(r) and Cool Whip(r).

    In addition, a two-page FSI reaching 45 million circulation will contain
    offers for a free 3-D poster from ACT II and a free watch from Crunch 'n
    Munch. The Hulk will also appear on over five million packages of ACT II.

    A promotion with Sunny "D", supported by a multi-million dollar TV campaign,
    features The Hulk DVD on packaging and offers a $3 rebate when a consumer
    buys two Sunny "D" products and The Hulk DVD.

    Since this is a fairly big release and from Universal, I wonder what kind of screw-up we can expect on this DVD. Audio track problems? Missing dialog? Misframing? Misinformation about the DVD?

    Are there going to be HT quality issues since they're now cramming a video game on the same disc as the film?

    Seems like this is just begging for technical glitches given two different technology uses on the same disc. Oh, yeah...plus it's a Universal release. As someone suggested in another thread, why don't they just include a prepaid mailer in the DVD case so we'll be ready to send them back immediately.

    I bet the game will be on the second disc. There was no problems with the hulk tv pilot. that was also from universal. I just wish there were the trailers for the hulk movie on the dvd.

    both xbox and playstation 2 can play dvds. I would assume you need the xbox to play it.

    this is from the bbfc rating board. www.bbfc.co.uk
    I think disc 3 (disc 2) has the one extra feature, and room for the xbox demo.

    I have updated the HULK DVD with making of hulk and the main menu for the hulk.
    Hulk cam is where you are watching the movie and then get a sign to click on something where you will be interupted of the movie to watch some behind the scenes stuff.. I think hulkification is also one of them.. not sure about that. I have listed all of the items so far that BBFC has listed. I still not sure about the trailers being on the dvd yet.

    So is this the first DVD to include a playable video game level on it?

    It makes sense since the game was made by Universal's in house game publisher Universal Interactive. I think the only other in house games publisher would be Disney's Disney Interactive.

    This is really one of the most exciting things about this release. This is the direction DVD seems to be going in, an all-in-one entertainment medium. Knowing Universal, they'll probably forget to include it on the discs, or screw something up with it though.
