The cast for Collateral Beauty is amazing, if the movie itself looks to be a little melodramatic. Though, that isn’t always a bad thing.
Will Smith leads a cast that includes Ed Norton, Kate Winslet, Keira Knightley, Helen Mirren, Naomie Harris, and Michael Peña… wow. Here’s the trailer:
We don’t have much of a synopsis for Collateral Beauty, but you get the basics from this trailer. Will Smith’s character suffers a tragic loss and shuts down while so many people around him try and pull him back into life. This could go one of two ways, and I don’t really see it anywhere in between.
This could be a tremendous film, an award-contending melodrama full of terrific performances. Or… it could be a straight up disaster. These ensemble life-affirming films are almost always one or the other, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it’s the former and not the latter. That title isn’t the most promising either way.
Collateral Beauty opens December 16.
