Hancock

Question: Bullets can't penetrate him, he can't even shave with a razor (has to use his fingernails), yet he can get drunk. How?

Chosen answer: Because the two are not even close to being related. Being bulletproof and being able to digest food\water\liquor are completely different.

Question: Where and when were "We were made in Pairs"?

Chosen answer: That was never answered in the movie, though she did say they were at least 3,000 years old.

Question: What is with the birds and the drawings on his cell wall?

Chosen answer: He is trying to piece together his memories so he can understand his past.

Question: I'm not sure if I was seeing things but during the fight between Hancock and Mary, when it goes all windy and stormy, at one point it cuts to some people who are screaming and running away. I thought I saw a figure that appears to be made out of rocks or similar material and about 10 foot tall, it wasn't our hero or heroine as they were not in that scene so what on earth was it?

Chosen answer: I saw it, too, and wondered. He's a street performer in L.A. that just happened to be around during filming. See: http://io9.com/5023487/hancock-giant-robot-mystery-++-solved

Question: I've played it over and over and still can't figure out what the bully kid Michel says, right after Hancock lands in the street. Is it in French?

Answer: "He is an asshole" Is the correct answer. In English. Not French.

Chosen answer: Yes, he basically says that he's going to tell his mother and the police.

Question: Why did Hancock end up having to go to New York to prevent his and Mary's powers from weakening? They had lived in L.A. all that time without it being a problem. Mary new he existed since his drunken heroics were always caught on tape or recorded (YouTube), and Nancy Grace even knew who he was.

Chosen answer: True, Mary knew he existed - but he didn't know about her. It was only after both of them became aware of one another that the mutual attraction set in. Besides this, before they met, Hancock was an alcoholic bum living on the streets, scorned and ridiculed by everyone. When he was in that state, it would be a lot easier for Mary to keep her (possible) attraction to him in check.

Question: Is the bubble gum Hancock saves in anyway significant or did I miss something? When he's in his trailer, he opens his small can and stares at the bubblegum and the movie tickets. Eventually the movie tickets are explained but did anyone mention the gum, or was it just something random?

Chosen answer: Hancock states that the only two things he had on him when he was taken to hospital 'way back when' were the two movie tickets and some gum. I guess he kept them for sentimentality reasons, or in the hope that one day he'd find out who he used to be/find someone who knew what had happened.

Question: We learned earlier that he took up the name Hancock after a 1930s nurse asked for his John Hancock when signing out. Why doesn't Mary tell Hancock his real name, furthermore why doesn't he ask her.

Chosen answer: It's not important anymore, him and Mary have been around for a long while and have probably changed their names many times to keep up with the times. Chances are her name wasn't Mary 80 years ago.

Question: Who's that kid in the beginning of Hancock, who wakes him up when he's lying on the park bench? It looks like Drew Mikuska from Scary Movie 3 but I'm not sure.

Chosen answer: It's not Drew, the actors name is Atticus Shaffer.

Question: Is one of the doctors that treat Mary after she is shot, actor (and director of Hancock) Peter Berg?

Chosen answer: Yes, in fact Hancock has quite a few cameos from other famous people who are normally on the other side of the camera, most notably, Michael Mann, Akiva Goldsman, and Huy Nguyen.

Question: Who are "them" or "they"? When Mary explains to Hancock all the times in history they have been attacked she always says "And we were attacked by them" or "When they came". Why were they being attacked? Could it have anything to do with the fact that at the time they would have been a couple in history where interacial relationships would have been frowned upon, or were they being attacked by some higher power entity?

Chosen answer: The implication is that people like the bad guy in this movie always seek out and target higher power beings like them, so eventually someone will always come after them.

Question: Hancock and Mary are fighting in the street and the tornados are swirling. When it shows Hancock, just before they pounce each other, there is a transformer like thing running across the street from left to right behind cars. What is that? (01:07:00)

Answer: The scene takes place on Hollywood Blvd, which is known for having people dress in costumes (and tourists take pictures with them, usually for money). There are also people who, as part of their costume, wear stilts. There was a guy who wore stilts as part of his seaweed monster costume who claims that's him, although in the film, the creature seems more robotic than seaweed covered. It seems the film makers were going to use this mystery extra for a more iconic establishing shot, but forewent it and so this is all we see of him.

Answer: I don't remember the guy's name, but he's a Hollywood Blvd street performer who wears a really well done, Transformers, Bumblebee costume.

Answer: Well my best guess after watching it and freezing the frame is that it's supposed to be someone in a costume. The street they are at has a theater, so there could be a premiere and someone is doing PR or advertisement dressed as a character. It's definitely someone on stilts wearing a cowboy hat and some kind of body armour.

Question: Who or what exactly are Hancock and Mary and why does being in close proximity to each other cause them to weaken?

Chosen answer: This is answered in the film. Mary and Hancock are a species that grew with humans and were worshipped as gods. Why they lose their power around each other is unknown.
