After several cast shake-ups and a change in directors, Collateral Beauty will finally be seeing the light of day in theaters on December 16. The melodrama is directed by David Frankel (The Devil Wears Prada), and stars Will Smith alongside a star-studded cast.
The first trailer of the film shows Smith searching for meaning in the wake of his character enduring horrific tragedy. In a fantastical twist, Smith's character leads him to meet with the human personifications of Time, Love, and Death (Jacob Latimore, Keira Knightley, and Helen Mirren).
Will Smith didn't need much convincing to get involved with this film. "It was one of those where you get a screenplay and you are in by page 10. You just go, 'Okay, I'm making this one,'" he stated to EW. "It's a really beautiful story and one of those movies that makes the holiday beautiful."
Here's the official synopsis for the film:
"Oscar winner David Frankel directs the thought-provoking, ensemble drama Collateral Beauty, from New Line Cinema, Village Roadshow Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures.
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.
Collateral Beauty features an all-star cast, including Will Smith (Suicide Squad, Concussion), Edward Norton (Birdman or [The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance]), Keira Knightley (The Imitation Game), Michael Peña (The Martian), Naomie Harris (Spectre), Jacob Latimore (The Maze Runner), with Oscar winners Kate Winslet (The Reader, Steve Jobs) and Helen Mirren (The Queen, Trumbo)."
