Another trailer has been released for Will Smith‘s intriguing new drama Collateral Beauty. In the film, he plays a successful New York advertising executive who suffers a great tragedy when he loses his daughter. According to the story description, this event causes him to retreat from life and “while his concerned friends try desperately to reconnect with him, he seeks answers from the universe by writing letters to Love, Time and Death. But it’s not until his notes bring unexpected personal responses that he begins to understand how these constants interlock in a life fully lived, and how even the deepest loss can reveal moments of meaning and beauty.”
This seems like such a fascinating and powerful film, and it’s one that I’m very interested in watching. I love it when Smith does these kinds of dramatic movies, and he is joined by an impressive supporting cast that includes Edward Norton, Keira Knightley, Kate Winslet, Helen Mirren, Michael Pena, and Naomi Harris.
Collateral Beauty opens in theaters on December 16th. Who knows, maybe this will be the film that ends up nabbing him an Oscar nomination.
