Hulk Smash M. Night Shyamalan!!!

Reuters reports that Louis Leterrier's The Incredible Hulk took in $54.5 million this weekend, putting the franchise revival at the top of the box office in its opening week. The green goliath went head-to-head with M. Night Shyamalan's The Happening, which took third place this weekend with only $30.5 million.
Thankfully, most filmgoers were smart enough not to fall for the desperate marketing of Shyamalan's "first R-rated movie," a fact beaten into our heads more than a few times in the film's advertising. Let me guess, the film starts off with an interesting premise which is then tainted by an asinine twist? If this film is a dud, I thnk it's time that Hollywood puts this one-trick pony out to pasture.
As for The Incredible Hulk? Thoroughly enjoyable, and an exciting addition to the ever-growing cinematic Marvel Universe. Click here for my full review at Broken Frontier.
