Check This Out: Hancock TV Spot

The reason why I'm featuring this new Hancock TV spot tonight is because I'm actually getting quite excited for this movie, which is rather remarkable. I've come all the way from absolute hatred to complete excitement - but I guess that's what happens when you're as excitable as I am. Anyway, this latest TV spot gives me the feeling that this could possibly turn out more entertaining than Spider-Man 3. That's a long shot, but you know what, it has a chance! I'm starting to realize everyone in the comments was right. It's got Will Smith, it's this year's big July 4th film, maybe it'll be just a good time. Anyone else agree?
The film still doesn't have an official rating, which means Berg and Sony are still struggling to get it down into the PG-13 range. If you're unfamiliar with the story behind that, make sure you read up on - it's what got me to start liking Hancock more and more.
Watch the new TV spot for Hancock:
Hancock is directed by Peter Berg, of The Rundown, Friday Night Lights, and The Kingdom previously. The film's script was written by over five different writers, including John August, Vince Gilligan, Akiva Goldsman, Vincent Ngo, and Peter Berg. Hancock arrives in theaters on July 2nd this summer - Will Smith's own 4th of July weekend spot. The teaser poster is featured below.
