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 (Will Smith) 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. Despite being grateful to have their local hero, the good citizens of Los Angeles are often left 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 he saves the life of PR executive Ray Embrey (Jason Bateman), 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 (Charlize Theron), insists that he's a lost cause.
DVD / BLU-RAY
Hancock is available as both a single disc DVD release containing the original UK theatrical version and as a double disc special edition packed with unmissable added value. These extensive bonus materials include five featurettes, which take viewers 'backstage' on Hancock. Included are the behind-the-scenes documentary Superhumans: The Making of Hancock; Seeing the Future takes eight scenes from the actual film footage or B-roll footage and shows side by side comparisons of the conception during the pre-visualization creation; the special effects are highlighted in Building a Better Hero; Bumps and Bruises is a breakdown of action sequences in the film; and director PETER BERG is interviewed for Mere Mortals: Behind the Scenes with 'Dirty Pete.'
The double disc special edition will also include a brand new Extended Cut and the original theatrical version of the film, alongside a bonus digital copy of the movie, which allows consumers to download a digital copy of the film to play on their PC or PSP® (PlayStation® Portable) System, and two additional featurettes. The added featurettes are Home Life, which shows via time lapse photography the building of the homes and buildings used in the film; and Suiting Up, a featurette on the film's costume design.
The bonus features for the Blu-ray High-Def Edition includes all the material from double disc edition plus the BD-Live feature and the additional Blu-ray exclusive featurette On-Set Visual Diary, a bonus-view picture-in-picture track with behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the cast, filmmakers and crew. The Blu-ray release will also include a bonus digital copy.
