The film doesn't hit theater for a few more days, but one director certainly wants to have a massive Blu-Ray release for his latest film. Collider recently spoke with The Incredible Hulk director Louis Leterrier about the film, which opens nationwide on June 13, and the filmmaker had some interesting tidbits on the possible extras on the film's Blu-Ray release.
I have to ask you...there's been a lot of talk about the 2 different cuts that exist on the movie. Obviously the DVD is going to have more footage.
Louis Leterrier: Yeah.
So, could you talk about what was cut out of the film, like is there 15 minutes?
Louis Leterrier: No, the final way of me cutting this...maybe there's like 10-15 minutes of stuff, but there's a lot of stuff like on the Blue-Ray I think we'll have 70 minutes of stuff.
Louis Leterrier: Seventy. 7-0.
Louis Leterrier: Yeah, because you shoot a lot of stuff, yeah. What's another picture? Yeah, but that's what great. It's like the back story. It's more the sequel to the Ang Lee movie.
I have to ask you...so the Blue-Ray...the DVD just has a little bit...
Louis Leterrier: No the Blu-Ray...it's whatever we can put on the DVD. Like DVD's you have like 3 hours of like yeah...you have a limit of 3 hours of footage and stuff. The Blu-Ray you have something like 100 hours, so if they do a double DVD but like the Blue-Ray is what's going to be good. So on the Blue-Ray I'm trying to put as much of the stuff...I want to put everything we shot, you know? I'm not the kind of guy that likes to keep the stuff for myself. I'm like, okay you student filmmakers, here's what I did right and here's what I did wrong and in some of the stuff, in the 70 minutes, there's some great stuff and there's some really horrible stuff, but you'll see it all, you know?
What about the behind-the-scenes material?
Louis Leterrier: Oh there's like tons of stuff like great stuff. That's actually much longer. We've got like 3 hours of material-how we made the The Incredible Hulk and everything. That's great stuff.
