"Hancock" vs. anything else?
Sometimes the best strategy is simply to get out of the way. The Fourth of July weekend has been very fruitful for Will Smith before -- remember 1996's "Independence Day"? In Peter Berg's "Hancock," Smith plays a troubled superhero in a match of more than just wits with Charlize Theron. While no other big movies are scheduled to open opposite it, Ben Stiller's "Tropic Thunder" and writer-director Guillermo del Toro's "Hellboy 2: The Golden Army" both open July 11. Even by then, though, "Hancock" may still be going so strong that it will be hard to beat.
