For the first time ever, all 3 Incredible Hulk TV movies in one collector’s edition box set are set for release on 6 August – and we teamed up with Fabulous Films to give away a few copies.
See Lou Ferrigno and Bill Bixby back in action in The Incredible Hulk Returns, The Trial of the Incredible Hulk and The Death of the Incredible Hulk. Filmed in 1988,1989 and 1990, the films were directed by David Banner himself a.k.a Bill Bixby.
All three films are also being released individually.
The Incredible Hulk Returns
Six years after the hit series ended, Bill Bixby, Lou Ferrigno and Jack Colvin (as nosy
reporter Jack McGee) returned for this top-rated television movie. Tim Thomerson, Charles
Napier and Steve Levitt co-star in this action-packed adventure.
The Incredible Hulk Returns was intended to serve as a pilot for a proposed ‘Thor” TV series that never came to fruition. However, Thor was re-teamed with The Incredible Hulk as a member of The Avengers in 2012. Lou Ferrigno’s voice was mixed with that of Mark
Ruffalo (who plays Dr. Bruce Banner) for The Avengers, to create the Hulk’s roar.
A new wig was necessary for this TV movie as Lou Ferrigno’s hearing problems had deteriorated. The new wig was required to hide his new hearing aid.
Synopsis: It’s been 2 years since his last transformation, and Dr. David Banner (Bill Bixby) has developed a new Gamma Transponder that he hopes will cure him of his inner
monster forever. But when a former colleague unearths the frozen tomb of an ancient
Norse warrior king, The Mighty Thor (Eric Allan Kramer) is unleashed upon 20th Century
society. Can The Hulk (Lou Ferrigno) end the rampage of this mead-crazed barbarian, or
will the two raging beasts become allies to save both the transponder and the woman
The Trial of The Incredible Hulk
John Rhys-Davies (Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Lord of the Rings) co-stars as The Kingpin in this top-rated 1989 television film directed by Bill Bixby. It features Daredevil, one of the all-time great Hulk rampage scenes as well as a cameo appearance from Marvel
Comic’s Stan Lee.
Jack Colvin could not reprise his role as investigative reporter and nemesis Jack McGee for this movie. He was forced to retire from acting after suffering a minor stroke just after the release of The Incredible Hulk Returns.
Synopsis: While trying to stop a subway mugging linked to The Kingpin, David Banner (Bill Bixby) is arrested for assault and is defended by blind attorney Matt Murdock (Rex Smith). But when Hulk (Lou Ferrigno) goes beserk and breaks out of jail, Murdock reveals his own secret to David Banner. Blinded by toxic radiation, he stalks the night as the super-sensory acrobatic crime fighter called Daredevil. Can two men with uncommon powers now join forces to defeat an international crime syndicate or will their raging inner demons destroy whatever stands in their way?
The Death Of The Incredible Hulk
The Death Of The Incredible Hulk is the fascinating finale of the hugely popular TV series about a scientist, Dr. David Banner (Bill Bixby), who transforms into a mighty, larger-than-life beast called The Hulk (Lou Ferrigno)- when he gets angry.
After appearances by Thor and Daredevil in the two previous Hulk TV movies, Iron Man was initially intended to appear in the film although this never transpired.
Another movie was planned where David is brought back to life. However, low ratings and ultimately Bill Bixby’s death put an end to The Hulk TV movies.
Synopsis: Desperately trying to rid himself of his monster-like alter ego once and for all,
Banner sneaks into a government research lab run by Dr. Ronald Pratt (Philip Sterling),
hoping to find a solution. When Pratt discovers Banner’s plight, he offers to help. But a
beautiful spy (Barbara Tarbuck), who’s out to steal Pratt’s ideas for terrorists, forces
Banner to choose between love and loyalty, good and evil, and ultimately, life and death.
