Moving New Trailer for Will Smith's COLLATERAL BEAUTY

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.

Stephen Colbert responds to the election of Donald Trump

In the wee hours of the night, shortly before the race was called in favor of Donald Trump, Stephen Colbert wrapped up his Live Election Night special on Showtime with some poignant parting words. While Colbert has been as critical of Trump as any other late night host, he didn’t spend much time discussing the new president-elect in his speech to the audience at his shown.

Instead, he wanted to focus on bringing Americans together.

Colbert begins by discussing politics as an obsession. While being informed is important, he says, it’s not healthy to spend as much time as we doing thinking about, talking about, writing about and reading about the political system. When he was young, “politics used to be something we thought about every four years, maybe two years, if you didn’t have a lot of social life.”

He then goes on to talk about all the things that truly unite Americans, regardless of their politics. For example, we all agree that “work email sucks,” that you shouldn’t eat a Kit Kat like a normal candy bar and that veggie pizza stinks.

Watching late night television is going to be fascinating not only in the coming days, but in the months and years after Trump takes office. But for now, let’s just enjoy Colbert’s message of solidarity as the final ballots are counted:
