Will Smith's Seven Pounds Official Poster

Seven Names. Seven Strangers. One Secret. Sony has unveiled the official poster for Seven Pounds, the upcoming Will Smith movie. It's not much to look at, but for those interested in the film or for those who appreciate sleek design, it's worth checking out. I'm hearing quite a bit of under-the-radar buzz for this, from those who really want to see it and expect it to be fantastic, but aren't really talking about it. I'm still not even really sure what it's about or what Will Smith's "secret" is, but I guess that's part of the experience. It really does look like one of the better movies still left this year. Check it out!

Click the photo below for a extra large version of the poster. I also suggest everyone take a quick look at the trailer for Seven Pounds, especially if you haven't actually watched it yet - it's definitely worth watching.

    MEN IN BLACK III??? That would probably pop in my for a moment if I saw the poster from afar.
  • Will S. (Co Springs)

  • tzarinna

  • ha1rball
    Its cool cause when you look at one of the names in the poster i looks like it fades into the background and another one pops out in your peripherals. Dead George Ristuccia in the bottom right and then Nicholas Adams pops out, Its cool!

    Meet Joe White (Will Smith) Meet Joe Black (Brad Pitt). The Grimm Reaper or someone not human with spiritual/religious powers. Will Smith is someone note alive, or is he. Or an Alien like the Kevin Spacey movie K-PAX.

    Looks like a Scientology poster-boy.

    What is it tzarinna? What is it?! I get more and more confused every day...
  • tzarinna
    Well I read something in ew yesterday so that's kind of got my theory all screwy. The penance part I had in my head was right.
  • tzarinna
    Okay, okay, you're going to think I'm crazy. Well, I was figuring the 7 lbs has to do with his slender stature, he's dying, somewhere in there 7 lbs must come into play. "Every last soul must pay a last toll", it's going to be a tear jerker no doubt about that. For some reason I'm getting a few happy cries as while a full on blubbering uncontrollable cry out of this one. So either 7 lbs is money or both weight and money. Crazy, I know. :?

    I heard is that he is going to commit suicide and picks 7 people to give his organs to, but I could be thinking of something else.
  • tzarinna
    I thought it was released that he's an IRS agent that gives money to seven people he wronged.
  • jvj590
    # 12, I think you may be right. He did say in the trailer that in seven seconds he changed his life forever. I think the guilt he is feeling is so overwhelming that he has decided to give the "gift of life". But along with him donating his organs he decided to give all of his wealth away also, his home for example. I can't figure out what he plans to give Rosarios character, but whatever it is I think he screws up and starts to fall for her. Then comes the problem of him still wanting to "pay" for what he did and him now finally forgiving himself at the same time. Thanks of course to the help of Rosario.
  • tzarinna
    So, are we thinking assisted suicide due terminal illness?
  • http://hancockmovie.blogspot.com Seven Pounds movie
    Well from what I have gathered, the movie - which is based on anovel, I believe, is about an IRS agent who kills seven people in a tragic accident and becomes suicidal as a result. He decides before killing himself that he will first help /assist seven random strangers who he considers show sufficient need and appear deserving of his assistance. (I guess his IRS job gives him access to relevant data of individuals) This stuff was being thrown arouns early in the summer when this film was being shot and first being discussed by fans online. As for the title, maybe a reference to the "pound of flesh" he feels he must pay times seven? Just a guess. Hopes this helps.
  • taurinh24
    ok, from reading all of the comments, this is my take. will smith is an IRS agent, who in seven seconds, gets into an accident from carelessness, maybe drunk driving, and drastically alters 7 peoples lives, he is now looking for redemption to help better their lives, may it be sacrificing his or something of that form. the people seem to be in hospitals or injured. seven pounds could signify the "weight" of the seven lives he changed/damaged that he carries around. just my thoughts.
  • skiprx
    As above, he must have caused an accident that killed seven people while drunk driving his 64-67 Corvette Coupe. His help/assistance is in form(s) of financial and organ donations (eyes, heart, etc.) He contracts someone to kill him on cue, but falling in love with one of the seven poses a problem with the suicide/assassination. I thought that I read somewhere the title was suppose to be weight of human heart.
  • Matt
    Can't be the weight of the human heart...It weights 12 oz for men and 10 oz for women...
  • Johnny
    just as I predicted, wil smiths' film Seven is a flop opening in 2nd place at 16mil, damn what a comedown, and how the mighty have fallen: finally people are realizing the downright bad actor, overactor smith really is...failure, failure, failure, it's about time!
  • Marissa!
    Seven Pounds DOES stand for the human heart. It usually weighs about Seven Pounds &15 ounces... You know its called seven pounds for the human heart because the biggest thing of the movie is how he has given his heart to Emily, or Rosario Dawson.... Hence the "seven pounds." Good movie; Sad, but very well done. Not his best film though, I will say that.
  • Marissa!
    But question, Who were "Nicolas Adams" &George "Ristuccia"? I know he helped Holly, Ben, Ezra, Emily, and Connie, But who were the other two of the seven??
  • Staralfur
    Nicolas and George, the little boy and the ice hockey coach.
  • Illuminaughty
    Seven pounds is the average weight of a human heart. Seven pounds to save a life; Seven souls he took, seven lives he will save. Poetic.
