Japanese Hancock Poster



What’s most striking about this poster is just how serious it is. The whole drunk super-hero thing is just substituted by a very serious Will Smith. As a matter of fact he is so serious he seems to be causing a lightning storm and a hurricane. Which he probably should be saving people from if he wasn’t so busy being serious.

I wonder if they thought the humor just wouldn’t translate and so went with a straight sell. Seems like a weird decision.

(Thanks to Casty for sending this along)

    I just looked at the Swedish Hancock poster and saw that in his shades the silhouette of Stockholm is reflected. Is it a different image refleceted for every country?

    Hmmm, good question Susanne. I actually have no idea, but I’ll try to find out.

    I’ve said that least 1224511 times. The problem this like that is they are just too compilcated for the average bird, if you know what I mean

    Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

    If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.
