Hancock (US BD) in November - Artwork added

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have announced the US Blu-ray Disc release of Hancock on 25th November 2008 priced at $39.95 SRP. Directed by Peter Berg, Hancock stars Will Smith as a sarcastic hard-living and misunderstood superhero who has fallen out of favour with the public. When Hancock grudgingly agrees to an extreme makeover from idealistic publicist Ray Embrey (Jason Bateman), his life and reputation rise from the ashes and all seems right again – until he meets a woman with similar powers to his and the key to his secret past. Charlize Theron also stars.
