Will Smith, ‘Seven Pounds’

Lead actor in the mix

You can never count out a box office sure thing — or at least as close to that as anyone can be these days — but art and commerce don’t often walk down the aisle hand in hand come Oscar time. Still, the last time Smith worked with director Gabriele Muccino, he earned a nod for “The Pursuit of Happyness,” so this is a combination that has connected in the past.
