How amazing would it be if they got Mark Ruffalo for the show as well???

Waaaay back in November '10, we first learned about an upcoming live-action Hulk TV show, and we were LOVING everything we were hearing!

Now, we've learned that the Hulk in the new series will look the same as the Hulk from The Avengers, which is briefly visible in the movie's trailer at the 1:55 mark (above)!

Harrison Ford Thinks Modern Action Flicks Are "Soulless"

Filed under: Film FlickersHarrison Ford

Harrison Ford Kicks Real Ass

First off, before we get into what Han Solo has to say about modern action films, can we just say that he looks pretty great for his age?

The guy is 67! Wow!

Anyway, back to the topic at hand: action in modern times.

The veteran actor, on his promotion tour for the very cool looking Cowboys & Aliens, has spoken up about the use of CGI in action movies these days:

"I think what a lot of action movies lose these days, especially the ones that deal with fantasy, is you stop caring at some point because you've lost human scale. With the CGI, suddenly there's a thousand enemies instead of six - the army goes off into the horizon. You don't need that."

"That's something that's consistently happening, and it makes these movies like video games and that's a soulless enterprise. I don't have time for that."

While we're not sure that we agree that video games on a whole are a soulless enterprise, we really understand where he's coming from when it comes to film and a character's personal struggle.

It's awesome that someone as important as he is is speaking up about this trend. Sadly, we don't think many execs will listen, seeing as the CGI bullshizz train makes them waaaay too much money to get off.

Though, it'd be nice to see some young up-and-comers be inspired by what he's said, and maybe we can start a bit of a revolution!

How do U feel about action movies these days??

Green Lantern Having Special-Effects Issues, Needs More Money

Green Lantern Needs Money

It's never a good sign when something is so effect-heavy that the studio panics that it won't be out in time because of it, so they feel the need to pump and extra $9 MILLION into making sure that it does.

This is what happens when you rush things just because they're summer tent-poles!

Would a Green Lantern movie really be that bad if the whole suit wasn't digital? Or if they went a little more personal instead of epic?

Harrison Ford recently spoke up about it, and we're inclined to agree with him for the most part:

"With the CGI, suddenly there's a thousand enemies instead of six — the army goes off into the horizon. You don't need that. The audience loses its relationship with the threat on the screen. That's something that's consistently happening and it makes these movies like video games and that's a soulless enterprise. It's all kinetics without emotion. I don't have time for that."

This is becoming commonplace for studios, too, where they have to throw extra money at a production because of reasons like this. That doesn't seem very cost-effective to us, and we get the feeling that movies are ending up sub-par because all the rushing.

Doesn't make sense when you can make something cheaper and better, if you just take your time, does it?

But we guess it's a good thing they're putting more into it instead of just calling it a day.

Those Damn, Dirty Apes Are Back! Check Out The Preview For Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes

We guess they gave it a last-minute name change!

Check out the just-released new trailer for the new prequel to Planet of the Apes, now titled Rise of the Planet of the Apes (above), starring James Franco, Freida Pinto, and Tom Felton (above)!

As we've reported, this one's an origin story as to how the now iconic monkeys came to be as smart as civilized as we've seen them in the original flicks, and we've got to say, this looks VERY well done!

The CGI alone is pretty epic! We're impressed!

Here's hoping that the story and acting is just as good! We wouldn't want this to bomb!

What do U think?? Will U go see Rise of the Planet of the Apes?

Mark Ruffalo's Hulk Will Be Hairy, Like Him!

Filed under: Film FlickersMark Ruffalo

mark-ruffalo-version-of-the-hulk-will-be-hairy-chested

Good! Hopefully this version will be a little more lifelike than the past interpretations!

We were very excited to hear that Mark Ruffalo would be taking over as the Hulk in lieu of Eric Bana and Edward Norton in the upcoming superhero flick The Avengers, and now even moreso, since the actor has on gone and record to reveal that the latest look of the CGI hero will be done with motion captor, and will even feature more body hair than the previous versions!

He explains:

"No one's asked me to shave my chest yet, thank God. They want this Hulk to be as close to me as possible. I'll be playing him in motion-capture, so this Hulk will just be a bigger avatar version of me. As they're modeling him, they're using many of my own features, down to my scars and wrinkles. He will have body hair, but I don't know to what extent."

Nice! We're pretty down with Ruffalo in any capacity, so the idea that the new Hulk will be modeled more closely to his likeness is fine by us - especially if he ends being just as furry as the real-life actor!

YUM! Ha!

We can't wait to see how it comes out!

Come on guys, let's see a teaser pic! LOLz!
