Love, time and death visit Will Smith in the trailer for Collateral Beauty
When a successful New York advertising executive (Will Smith) experiences a deep personal tragedy and retreats from life entirely, his colleagues devise a drastic plan to force him to confront his grief in a surprising and profoundly human way. A touch of A CHRISTMAS CAROL is in store for us today with the trailer for David Frankel's COLLATERAL BEAUTY.
Alright, so this trailer is heavy-handed as hell. I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing. The trailer knows the audience it's aiming for and it goes for it. Besides, if you're going to make a move with material like this, you could do worse than have the likes of Will Smith, Edward Norton, Keira Knightley, Michael Pena, Kate Winslet and Helen Mirren in your cast. Whether or not the movie is a satisfying watch is another thing entirely!
COLLATERAL BEAUTY opens in theaters on December 16, 2016.
