Will Smith Meets Death, Time and Love in ‘Collateral Beauty’ Trailer

The first trailer for “Collateral Beauty” depicts Will Smith as a deeply depressed New York advertising exec coping with his daughter’s death.

His character starts to write letters to, before ultimately meeting Time, Love (played by Keira Knightley), and Death (portrayed by Helen Mirren). The cast includes Michael Pena, Naomie Harris, Jacob Latimore, and Kate Winslet.

“We’re here to connect,” he observes in the trailer. “Love, time, death: these three things connect every single human being on Earth. We long for love, we wish we had more time, and we fear death.”

“Collateral Beauty,” directed by David Frankel from a script by Allan Loeb, arrives Dec. 16 from New Line in a counter-programming move against the opening of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”

Producers are Bard Dorros, Michael Sugar, Allan Loeb, Anthony Bregman, and Kevin Frakes. Executive producers are Toby Emmerich, Richard Brener, Michael Disco, Michael Bederman, Peter Cron, and Bruce Berman. Village Roadshow co-produced and co-financed.

    Sounds interesting, but are these played by his friends or people he knows or are they really supposed to be Time, Love, Death? Guess i’ll have to wait and find out.
