Hancock Coming to DVD and Blu-Ray on November 25th

After weeks of speculation, Sony Pictures has confirmed a late-November Blu-ray touchdown for the Will Smith blockbuster 'Hancock.'

Originally rumored for an early-December release, fans will get the $200 million-plus-grossing superhero spoof earlier than expected when Sony debuts the Blu-ray of 'Hancock' on November 25, day-and-date with the standard DVD.

As the studio has only just issued a trade alert for 'Hancock,' all tech specs and supplement details are still under wraps. We'll certainly keep you posted as soon as the full press announce comes in.

Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $38.95.

Sony Pictures Offers BD Live Commitment and Details of HANCOCK Blu-ray Disc

Hancock, recently announced for release on Blu-ray November 25th, will be Sony Pictures Home Entertainment's first high-def disc to include a Digital Copy of the movie. The DRM-protected copy will be delivered on a second disc inside the package, a DVD. Sony executives later confirmed that this will follow the model of Sony's recent DVD Digital Copy offerings, with a transferable file for the PC in addition to a smaller file specifically for use on the Sony PlayStation Portable handheld.

Until now, Sony's biggest Digital Copy titles had been 21 and Vantage Point, so the Will Smith-starring summer blockbuster Hancock represents a major commitment to their entire digital copy initiative. The Sony rep also hinted at a future "Rewards Club" for consumers, allowing them to amass points for purchasing Sony Blu-ray discs and later redeeming for assorted paraphernalia.

The Hancock news followed Sony's announcement that all of their future Blu-ray players will be able to connect to the internet. In conjunction with that hardware support, all SPHE Blu-ray titles going forward will be BD-Live-enabled as well. Speaking privately with SPHE executives after the press conference, we learned that Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is working on enhancements to their BD-Live framework and servers to speed up delivery of BD-Live content on existing players and titles.

Other Blu-ray titles were also teased, including a new Collector's Edition of Casino Royale, no doubt timed to the theatrical release of the upcoming James Bond sequel, Quantum of Solace. This second, more elaborate issue of Casino Royale marks one of the first "double dips" of the Blu-ray era.

Coming out before the Blu-ray Disc version of Hancock (though no specific date was announced) will be an internet-downloadable version of the movie. No, we're not talking about some bootleg illegal copy of the film, but a legitimate high definition version of the film direct from Sony Pictures. The catch is that it will only be available to owners of select Bravia LCD televisions, enabled with the Bravia Internet Video Link feature (IPTV). Details on delivery date are yet to be announced.

Hancock sleeve in subliminal ad shocker!

http://img515.imageshack.us/img515/4621/coverff2.jpg

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment recently unveiled the sleeve art for UK Blu-ray sleeve art for the Will Smith smash Hancock. The blockbuster is scheduled to hit both DVD and Blu-ray i the UK on December 1, but we wonder if anybody at Sony actually signed off on this piece of artwork.

The first thing worth noting is that the artwork itself is horrible. Quite why the company didn't simply stick with the iconic close-up of Hancock's face that was used for the movie poster is beyond our comprehension. Still, as ugly as it is, at least it has been tweaked from the similar American sleeve, which managed to give away a rather major story spoiler regarding the film's plot!

However, the most intriguing thing of all came when we took a closer look at the image. Clearly visible to Hancock's right is a huge billboard promoting the new series of Dexter...

http://img515.imageshack.us/img515/7892/subliminalfc9.jpg

It's a strange piece of 'almost subliminal' advertising, especially when you take into account the fact that this critically-acclaimed Showtime series is distributed on DVD by Paramount on both sides of the Atlantic, while Hancock is a Sony Pictures release. Have the two studio rivals come to some kind of cross-promotional agreement, or is somebody in Sony's art department going to get a very big slap on the wrist for this oversight?
