Warner Bros. Pictures has released an official trailer for the upcoming drama Collateral Beauty.
The movie looks to be inspired by holiday season classics such as A Christmas Carol and It’s A Wonderful Life. It also features quite the impressive cast, including multiple Academy Award winners and nominees. Starring is Will Smith, Edward Norton, Keira Knightley, Kate Winslet, Helen Mirren, Michael Pena, Naomie Harris, and Jacob Latimore. It’s directed by Oscar winner David Frankel, who has previously directed episodes of hit TV series and miniseries (Band of Brothers, Sex and the City, Entourage) and movies (The Devil Wears Prada, Marley & Me, The Big Year, Hope Springs).

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 set to be released in theaters on December 16th. Unfortunately for it, that happens to be the very same date that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be released. That’s also the day that Whiplash writer and director Damien Chazelle’s La La Land starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling will be released. In other words, it wouldn’t be the worst idea for one of the non-Star Wars movies to pack up and move somewhere else.
This December, experience the profound connection between us all.
Watch the official trailer for Collateral Beauty, starring Will Smith, Edward Norton, Keira Knightley, Michael Pena, Naomie Harris, Jacob Latimore, with Kate Winslet and Helen Mirren.
