Charlize Theron talks about this weekend’s Hancock

With great power comes great responsibility – everyone knows that – everyone, that is, but Hancock.


In one of this summer’s most anticipated movies, Will Smith returns to the big screen as the unlikely superhero Hancock. Drunk and almost always disorderly, Hancock isn’t the kind of man who cares what other people think – until the day that he saves the life of PR executive Ray Embrey (Jason Bateman), and the sardonic superhero begins to realize that he may have a vulnerable side after all. Facing that will be Hancock’s greatest challenge yet – and a task that may prove impossible as Ray’s wife, Mary insists that he’s a lost cause.

Playing Mary is Oscar winning actress Charlize Theron. Here, the South African beauty talks about the film – what she describes as one of the most original superhero movies to date.


‘Hancock’ is in Irish cinemas from July 2nd.
