Trailer Blazer: 'Hancock'

Wow. I mean…wow. Just…look.

He’s homeless and drunk, see. But he’s got powers, get it? And his life is still screwed up. That’s deep.Here, finally, is the film that will test Will Smith’s true box office power: Can he, through sheer force of STAR, make this lame-ass, Blankman-grade superhero satire a hit? Not since Wild Wild West has Smith shown up in a film that carried with it the overwhelming stench of misfire.

And I haven’t seen a tossing-of-marine-wildlife gag that good since My Super Ex-Girlfriend. And we all know how that turned out.

    Do you hear that? That’s the sound of Will cashing his next paycheck.
    Who cares if it looks awful, you know it’ll still be #1 at the box office. I can’t see it, I ave to stay home and make sure my grass grows at an even rate.

    Marc…I’m just curious…after lightly trashing “The Dark Knight” trailer, are there any previews that you like?
    That being said, sure this movie looks stupid, but you know what? “Blankman” squeezed a few laughs out of me. I think it’s a bad trailer more than anything. Anyway, I think to say this is the movie that’ll stop Will Smith’s hot streak is absurd.
    Let’s see, it’s got a solid supporting cast (Charlize Theron, Jason Bateman…for British eyes on-ly!), it’s got a respected director (Peter Berg). Oh yeah, I almost forgot. It’s a freakin’ Will Smith movie in the summer!

    That’s weird, it just plays the same short cartoon clip over and over again for me. “Hey, ho, lets go.”

    I want to see this because i was in LA on vacation when they were filming it. We got to see Will Smith and Charlize Theron. They were filming a scene on Hollywood Blvd in fron of Mann’s Chinese Theatre and from what I saw I couldn’t tell what the hell was going on in this particular scene. It was cool getting a first hand look at the filming!

    Let see….
    Will Smith + blowing up stuff x summer = box office bonanza

    Blinky, I see the same thing. Just a 5 second promo for the JoBlo website. Is the link for this trailer broken?

    I was in LA on vacation when they were shooting this film in the downtown area. Will was prepping for a huge FX scene, but he took time out to wave and say a few words to the crowd. He is just likable. I think that’s the secret to his success.

    I just read some article about Will Smith and he was talking about past movie mistakes and that he has grown up since then and now knows how to pick and choose the right ones. So, what happened here Will?

    Jason Bateman is always a draw. I think it looks entertaining!

  • Kimi

    I don’t know, I think it looks pretty entertaining. And that whale gag is hilarious.

  • TVSlave

    Looks like fun to me…lighten up, criticboy…..

  • Rakeem

    It lloks fun! I was disappointed that the direction of movie changed from the original concept, when it was supposed to be titled “Tonight He Comes” and was more of a drama, but I’m kind of excited about it again! The only qualm I have is the use of Ludacris’s “Move” in the trailer, I like the song but it didn’t really fit this trailer.

    i agree, that whale gag had me laugh-crying. And although the Super Ex-girlfriend reference is valid, I think it’s important to say that that shark looked totally fake.
    also, why didn’t you mention that this is (i believe) the first time Will isn’t playing a worshiped and admirable hero? At least he’s branching out.

  • Lauren

    It doesn’t look bad to me…might be fun to watch.

    I don’t see the trailer, just an advertisement.
