1980: The FIRST INCREDIBLE HULK feature film... and its not what you think!

Here is a January 1980 half-page advert (from, of course, Marvel UK's HULK COMIC) for the FIRST INCREDIBLE HULK feature film!

It's actually Ken Johnson's TV pilot, aired in the States in November 1977 and already seen on British TV in May 1978.

Nothing new was shot for the theatrical release.

Note the crazy North/ South London distribution split (and the staggered national roll out, presumably to allow a limited number of prints to be passed along the chain) and the not-really-appropriate supporting feature!
