Special agents in action

The cast of Fringe.From JJ Abrams (Lost); Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman (Star Trek, Mission Impossible : III and Alias) comes a new drama that will thrill, terrify and explore the blurring line between science fiction and reality.  FBI special agent Olivia Dunham is called in to investigate an international flight landing at Boston’s Logan Airport where passengers and crew have all died grisly deaths. When the investigation nearly kills her partner, her search leads her to the institutionalised Dr Walter Bishop, an Einstein of his own kind. Pulling his estranged son, Peter in to help, and under special agent Phillip Broyles, the group will discover that whatever happened on that fatal flight is only a small piece of a larger, more shocking truth.

Undoing the damages

HBO presents Hancock as the blockbuster of the month. The movie, starring Will Smith, Charlize Theron, Jason Bateman and Eddie Marsan, airs on September 25 at 9 pm. Well-intentioned but hard-living, edgy, sarcastic and misunderstood, Hancock is not your everyday superhero.

His heroics, while they might get the job done and save lives, always seem to leave jaw-dropping damage in their wake. Having fallen out of favour with the public, things don’t look good for Hancock — until he saves the life of a PR executive.
