If “Collateral Beauty” can deliver on the promise of its first trailer, released Wednesday, moviegoers are in for a heart-tugging treat come Christmas.
Will Smith stars as an ad man who’s struggling with the death of his daughter. While friends worry about his emotional state, he writes letters to “Death” (Helen Mirren), “Love” (Keira Knightley) and “Time” (Jacob Latimore) ― and hears back.
Watching mere snippets of Smith’s encounters may choke you up. Imagine what a whole movie might do.
The “Collateral Beauty” cast also includes Kate Winslet, Edward Norton, Michael Pena and Naomie Harris. The film opens Dec. 16.
