Second Trailer for David Frankel's 'Collateral Beauty' with Will Smith
"I'm love, and I'm the fabric of life." Warner Bros has revealed a second trailer for David Frankel's new film Collateral Beauty, starring Will Smith as an executive in New York City struggling to recover from the loss of a child. As seen in the first trailer, Smith's way of coping is to write letters to "love, time, death", but then he begins to encounter these concepts as real people, kind of like a twist on A Christmas Carol. The full cast includes Edward Norton, Keira Knightley, Michael Pena, Naomie Harris, Jacob Latimore, Kate Winslet and Helen Mirren. I still prefer the first trailer, but this looks like a powerful and uplifting story of hope. It seems the title refers to finding beauty in everyone and everything, even in your own pain.
Here's the second official trailer (+ poster) for David Frankel's Collateral Beauty, direct from YouTube:
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.
