Will Smith Meets Death and Love In the ‘Collateral Beauty’ Trailer

The first teaser trailer for Collateral Beauty finds Will Smith as a New York advertising executive who begins writing therapeutic letters to no one (technically to “the universe”) after experiencing a tragic loss. His friends, played by Edward Norton, Kate Winslet, Michael Pena, and Ann Dowd – are all concerned about his depression until suddenly he gets an It’s a Wonderful Lifetwist.

Collateral Beauty

Mirren shows up on a park bench announcing herself as the personification of Death, Keira Knightley arrives and literally says, “I am Love,” and Jacob Latimore is Time, something Smith’s character is wasting a lot of. They try to help him turn around his life and you know, see how all things in life are connected (there’s a toppling domino maze throughout the trailer if you missed the metaphor).

Here’s the full synopsis:

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.

Directed by David Franklel (The Devil Wears Prada), Collateral Beauty, which also co-stars Naomi Harris, has a totally insane cast that is enough of a selling point. (Though I’m mainly onboard for Dame Death Mirren.) The film opens on December 16, and besides going head-to-head with Rogue One, its an optimal release date for warm fuzzy ensemble dramas about love and life and death. It’s probably like Love Actually, just less romance, more tears and this time Knightley is actually Love. Watch Trailer Here

One thought on “Will Smith Meets Death and Love In the ‘Collateral Beauty’ Trailer”

  1. Brilliantly written heart wrenching story of a man not able to come to grips with the tragic death of his 6 year old daughter, A list star cast and a twist ending you never see coming. Not understand how Will Smith was not at the very least nominated for his outstanding role in this film,,,,,
