(I was at the movies today with a friend to see Will Smith in "I am Legend" at the IMAX. It was better than I thought it was going to be. But the big surprise was the movie poster for Will Smith's new movie. It's a comedy,... but you know there is some fun that has to be had with the subtitle :)
There are heroes...there are superheroes...and then there's Hancock.
With great power comes great responsibility - everyone knows that - everyone, that is, but Hancock. Edgy, conflicted, sarcastic, and misunderstood, Hancock's well-intentioned heroics might get the job done and save countless lives, but always seem to leave jaw-dropping damage in their wake. The public has finally had enough - as grateful as they are to have their local hero, the good citizens of Los Angeles are wondering what they ever did to deserve this guy. Hancock isn't the kind of man who cares what other people think - until the day that he saves the life of PR executive Ray Embrey, and the sardonic superhero begins to realize that he may have a vulnerable side after all. Facing that will be Hancock's greatest challenge yet - and a task that may prove impossible as Ray's wife, Mary, insists that he's a lost cause.

Go kick the darkside's ass and help us get back to our Superman status....
