Collateral Beauty – Trailer 2

Having just seen the trailer for Collateral Beauty, initially the first thing that came to mind was Meet Joe Black, where Brad Pitt was the personification of Death (though this time the honor goes to Helen Mirren). 

That is, till I noticed that Will Smith seems to be playing some sort of savant (revealed in the meticulous patience required to set up all those dominoes, which I assume he did), that was probably brought on by some sort of trauma, such as the death of his wife and daughter..

So, essentially he’s trying to heal himself, though to do so he has to go back to the place of the original trauma, but his mind is torn, which is why he’s apparently seeing ghosts (they represent his mind warring with itself, in an effort to heal). 

So now it’s more like Identity (I guess), minus the gnarly murders.
