HANCOCK is legend.

The trailer brought the house down when we saw it in front of Legend, so I don't think the poster is going to frighten anyone away.

I liked the trailer a lot. The poster is more reminiscient of SPIDER-MAN's reflective eyepieces than I AM LEGEND.

"is Sony trying to capitalize (subconsciously at least) on the success of I Am Legend by having the tone of that movie's advertising reflected in Will Smith's glasses?"

Absolutely, that's what I was thinking at first glance. That same late-afternoon/smog lit feeling of the I am Legend poster. Kind of makes me sleepy in the way Pirates of the Carribean does. I haven't even seen I Am Legend(I want to) but to already be seeing something similar only a week or two after that movie came out, bores me to beers.

That's right, beers.

Is that poster just for American Eagle product placement?

Trailer didn't do much for me, but the audience at National Treasure ate it up. A friend of mine didn't even know what it was and couldn't believe this was Will Smith's next big vehicle. Especially since it is just the same joke over and over for what I'm sure will be a good two hours. I'm kinda indifferent to it. It might make an okay rental. and it will make a gazillion dollars.

Writing off a Peter Berg film kinda quickly.

That definatly gives this film the benefit of the doubt especially with Will Smith so hit and miss.

Big Willie looks like WONDER SHOWZEN's WinoBot in that poster.

Still looking forward to the movie. That grimace Smith gives in the trailer when he's trying to smile for the cameras is priceless. Plus: Bateman!

Great trailer, and I think the superhero genre is definitely ready for a skewering (the opportunity for which was so disastrously squandered by Ivan Reitman on "My Super Ex-Girlfriend" already).

I think Will Smith is great, and while the poster doesn't exactly set the bar high, the trailer more than did its job. I think this movie is going to be huge, especially if it really turns out to be really good.

To echo a previous thread, why don't they just call it COCK?

Yeah, I just can't grasp why they wouldn't just go with that title.

I hope we saw all of the YouTube bit in the trailer.

Because he only starts out being a DICK, eventually he learns a valuable lesson and ammends his ways.

I'm actually surprised the viral marketing geniuses haven't put it up yet.

Usually have trouble grasping COCK?

I have to give the studio credit for using a song not often (or at all) heard in trailers. I can't tell if it's the T-Rex version or Chalk Circle version of 20th Century Boy but it's nice to hear.

Someone told me it's Ludacris. I wouldn't know, I don't do spoken word.

Does it sample 20th Century Boy by chance? Because that riff at the beginning of the trailer is definitely from that song.
