While conducting interviews with Jason Bateman and Peter Berg about their exceptional new film The Kingdom, I was able to get both the actor and the director to spill a little bit about their upcoming Will Smith starring superhero flick, Hancock.

Peter Berg is directing the film, which revolves around a hard-living superhero (Smith) who has fallen out of favor with the public. He enters into a questionable relationship with the wife ( Charlize Theron) of a public relations professional (played by Bateman) who's trying to repair his image. The film is going to be huge, as it marks Smith's return to the Independence day holiday, and should help him regain his title as Mr. July 4th.
