The Incredible Hulk is one of the best-loved characters from Marvel Comics, and this 2008 version starring Edward Norton, presented Armstrong with his first action film score since 2001.
The composer was drawn to work with director Louis Leterrier (Clash of the Titans, The Transporter) because of a childhood passion for the big green superhero. Armstrong said of the project: ‘It’s a wee bit different for me because I’m not very well known for my action movies, but because as a kid I was such a fan of Marvel and The Incredible Hulk I decided to do it.’
On its release by Universal Pictures the movie saw box office grosses of over 260 million dollars worldwide, with a double score album hitting the global charts. Armstrong went on to win an ASCAP Award for his score.
