Hancock

Will Smith should own another July 4th weekend with this comedy.

Hancock starring Will Smith

<embed width="425" height="355" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/n0zhKUs2oe4&rel=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent"></embed>

Directed by Peter Berg with 5 writers credited...that's usually not a good sign.

IMDB

Don't sweat it Martin. It's not your fault. As Brack states the search mechanism isn't the best. I just stumbled upon the original thread earlier today so I linked it in your thread...

Anyway, no matter the films quality I'm sure this will be a big hit. Will Smith can seemingly do no wrong as of late.

Looks cute. I agree it's nice to see Will Smith play an unlikeable character.

Unlikeable??
He's gonna set the trend for more movies with anti-heroes in them. People will love this character.
Good to see more of Bateman too.

Looks pretty good. I'll start preparing the aircraft carrier to hold all the money it's going to make.

i think it looks great. I always wondered, when reading comics and watching superhero movies, who foots the bill for the destruction to public property? looks like this will handle that angle.

and the whale scene was pretty funny.

I see you slightly changed your description of "I Am Legend" from the other Hancock thread.

I thought the trailer looked funny enough. Saw it with "National Treasure" last night. The audience was laughing like crazy.

Sparked my interest.

Wasn't this one originally called "Tonight He Comes"? I kinda like that title better than one with "cock" in it.

Edit: Ok, I don't care what it's called, this movie looks fun. The end scene with the whale cracked me up. I'll definitely see this in theaters.
