Collateral Beauty Trailer

"Love. Time. Death. Now these three things connect every single human being on Earth." Warner Bros has debuted a trailer for the new film Collateral Beauty, from the director of The Devil Wears Prada. Will Smith stars as a broken man who hates life after losing his child. He begins writing letters to "love, time, death" and suddenly encounters these ideas as real people in New York City. It's kind of a new modern twist on the A Christmas Carol story. The impressive ensemble includes Edward Norton, Keira Knightley, Michael Pena, Naomie Harris, Jacob Latimore, Kate Winslet and Helen Mirren. This looks very powerful, very emotional, and very good. This December, experience the profound connection between us.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for David Frankel's Collateral Beauty, direct from YouTube:

Collateral Beauty Poster

When a successful New York ad executive suffers a personal tragedy and retreats from life, his friends devise a drastic plan to reach him before he loses everything. Pushing him to the very edge, they force him to confront the truth in surprising and profoundly human ways. From Oscar-winning director David Frankel, this thought-provoking drama explores how even the deepest loss can reveal moments of beauty, and how the constants of love, time and death interlock in a life fully lived. Collateral Beauty is directed by American filmmaker David Frankel, of The Pennsylvania Miners' Story, The Devil Wears Prada, Marley & Me, The Big Year, Hope Springs, and One Chance previously. The screenplay is written by Allan Loeb & Andrea Logiudice Agnesina. Warner Bros will open Collateral Beauty in theaters starting December 16th.

    Looks like a snooze.... I'll be watching some Star wars: rogue one on december 16th.
    • So will I, and then inbetween viewings of Rogue One, I'll be watching this.

    Unfortunately, I simply can't take Will Smith seriously as an actor. I'm struggling to think of a single movie of his that I could stomach.
    • This is a very sad over-generalization. The original Men in Black? Great film. Enemy of the State, Independence Day, Bad Boys 1 & 2, Ali, I Am Legend, Concussion. He's even really good in I, Robot. Pretty sure your comment is nonsense.
      • Jon Odishaw
        Alex with the chirps! Haha Pursuit of happyness, seven pounds, suicide squad. His comment is definitely nonsense.
        • InNolanWeTrust
          Is it fair to say that you can't handle opposing viewpoints? If so let me know so I can block you.
          • Jon Odishaw
            Hey now no need for that. Remember my earlier comment? I was very courteous and respected your opinion. I relapsed a bit here I'll admit but I swear I'm not an asshole.
      • InNolanWeTrust
        Or perhaps just a different opinion than yours?
        • I don't know, saying that every film Will Smith has ever done is something you "can't stomach" is a bold hyperbole... I named quite a few that are better than most films, and I think everyone could find one from those I named that they enjoyed, so again, seems like an exaggerated "opinion" if it truly is one.
    • petermccormack
      I have to agreed with The Pursuit of Happyness and Seven Pounds.
  • Jon Odishaw
    To offer a different opinion on Will Smith, I think he is amazing. Just watched Concussion and Pursuit of happyness(again) last week. And after that my girlfriend, who has always hated him, came to see things my way. If all you know is his MiB, Independance day side I can understand but you should really watch a wider range of his films before shitting on him.
    • InNolanWeTrust
      I've watched practically every movie he has ever been in. Does that give me the right to "shit on him"?
      • Jon Odishaw
        If that's what you want to do, sure. I am speaking more about the people who see his mainstream work and label him one dimensional. But if you have seen everything you are more than welcome to that opinion.

      Of course, he's not a total disaster of an actor, far from that. Nobody mentions that here, but I liked him in Focus with Margot Robbie. I think I already wrote about him here. And I still think the same, he's not bad actor and there are some fun films with him, but he's nothing special either. He's just good in recognizing a good product which makes him that too. Which is far away from being an artist ...
    I could use some hammy Will Smith rom coms...HITCH 2!!~
  • RJmacready
    I suspect folks sandbagging Smith (Oscar winner?) is more of a reactionary response to a film premise that looks a little maudlin and ham-fisted in it's unabashed Oscar aspirations. Hopefully it'll be great and prove 'em wrong.
    • InNolanWeTrust
  • shiboleth
    Looks way too exhilarating and stereotypical ...
  • Sharkman1963
    Please, God, don't let Will Smith yell his famous line "Oh HAY-ALL Yeah!" Other than cringing at the thought of him doing that, like he has in almost all of his movies, I can't wait for this.
  • CShane
    Am I the only one who found this trailer (besides Alex) to be quite good? This film appears to have characters that I will actually care about, and dare I say it a good story? I'm quite excited for this one!
