EDIT: Trailer fixt. My bad.

One last trailer for you. It's weird watching this because I basically feel like I've already seen this movie. I don't know if it was less obvious in comic-books proper, or what, but there is something really redundant about the superhero narrative. The central thrust seems to always be great power/responsibility thrust on some schlub who isn't ready for it, and hasn't actually asked for it. Occasionally the responsibility comes before the power (Batman Begins) but it's all really starting to feel like the same story.


This is one reason I actually ride for Hancock—well, at least half of Hancock. The first portion is really entertaining to me, if only because, in general, I like watching a super-hero with a bop, and in specific, I'm a fan of Will Smith. Of course the film falls apart on the "twist." But I thought had they stuck with idea of drunk, lay-about superhero and a PR guy, they actually were on to something different. And then they went and stapled a love story to it. Oh well...
