‘Collateral Beauty’ Trailer 2: Will Smith Talks To Love, Death & Time

Warner Bros. has officially released the second trailer for Collateral Beauty. The film tells the story about of Howard Inlet (Will Smith), a New York advertising executive who as suffered from the tragedy of losing his child. While his friends try to reconnect with him, Howard starts writing letters to Love, Time and Death only to meet each of them personally as time goes on.

As expected the marketing is placing it as a an Oscar-bait film with the credits continuously reading “Oscar nominee/winner” in front of every name. However this doesn’t take anything away from the people who’ve worked hard to make this film. Smith is back in a smaller film and his character’s dramatic beats are pretty similar to those in Seven Pounds and The Pursuit of Happyness. I am looking forward to Smith to deliver an exceptionally heartwarming performance as Howard.

The film is directed by David Frankel who has previously directed the tearjerker Marley and Me (2008) and the absolutely fantastic The Devil Wears Prada (2006).

 Collateral Beauty hits theaters on December 16, 2016.

Read the official synopsis for the film below :

When a successful New York advertising executive suffers a great tragedy he retreats from life. 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.
