2016 looks like another big year for Will Smith. After starring in box-office smash-hit Suicide Squad this Summer, he now has a smaller, quieter drama Collateral Beauty on the way this Fall, and the first trailer and poster for the forthcoming film have arrived.

Smith leads a stellar ensemble of A-list talent, as a man named Howard that has lost his optimism and love for life after his daughter passes away. He writes letters to Time, Death and Love as a form of therapy but is surprised when they actually appear in person to talk to him and help him re-find himself. Warner Bros. have debuted the first trailer so check it out below:

If the talent aboard this project didn't already have you excited, then I'm sure this trailer will, because it's incredible. Director David Frankel's other projects include The Devil Wears Prada and Marley & Me so, if one thing's for sure, we know that Collateral Beauty will bring a nice blend of comedy and drama to the table. It's also going to be great seeing all this remarkable talent come together, in what has to be the best ensemble for any film this year. I mean, only a team this talented have the balls and audacity to go head to head with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story at the box office.

When talking to Entertainment WeeklyWill Smith said, "It’s a little bit It’s a Wonderful Life and a little bit The Wizard of Oz. It’s the process of Howard putting his life back together, but there’s also some interesting mystical elements. There’s huuuuge spoilers. It’s delicately framed in a way that’s going to be tough to promote." The trailer itself is very ambigious but it certainly looks like an interesting film with a lot of heart and potential.

With David Frankel at the helm, and starring Will Smith, Edward Norton, Kate Winslet, Michael Peña, Kiera Knightley, Naomie Harris, Jacob Latimore and Helen Mirren, Collateral Beauty is set to hit UK cinemas on December 26th, 2016.

Here's the poster:
