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).
