In the latest episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, two big hit movies, one of which won over audiences more than the other.

1993’s The Fugitive was released in the August of that year – but in January, not a frame of footage of it had been shot. Plus: both of its leads feared it wouldn’t hit.

2008’s Hancock took over a decade to make, went through many directors, and was arguably the last edgy blockbuster movie role Will Smith took on. And test audiences weren’t happy…

Stories of both are discussed in this episode.
