Will Smith Is A Superhero With An Attitude

Will Smith stars in the new action adventure, 'Hancock.'

“Hancock is not your average superhero,” says Will Smith, the star of Columbia Pictures’ new action adventure, “Hancock.” Smith says that he was attracted to the film by the chance to bring an original, unique story to the screen — a superhero movie that expands the boundaries of the genre by stressing human emotion.

“There’s this idea that ‘summer’ movies are about action and that ‘fall’ movies are about character,” Smith says. “Well, what happens if you take a powerful, dramatic story with rich character arcs and set it in a world with all the bells and whistles of a July 4th movie? Why can’t you marry those and get the best of both worlds?”
