WATCH: ‘Collateral Beauty’ Main Trailer sets up Powerful Story of Loss, Recovery

“Be sure to notice the collateral beauty – it’s the profound connection to everything,” a character implores a depressed father who lost a child in the main trailer of New Line Cinema’s upcoming thought-provoking drama, Collateral Beauty.

When a successful New York advertising executive suffers a great tragedy he retreats from life.  While his concerned friends try desperately to reconnect with him, he seeks answers from the universe by writing letters to Love, Time and Death.  But it’s not until his notes bring unexpected personal responses that he begins to understand how these constants interlock in a life fully lived, and how even the deepest loss can reveal moments of meaning and beauty.

From Oscar-winning director David Frankel, Collateral Beauty features an all-star cast, including Will Smith, Edward Norton, Keira Knightley, Michael Peña, Naomie Harris, Jacob Latimore with Oscar winners Kate Winslet and Helen Mirren.

David Frankel (Dear Diary, Marley & Me, The Devil Wears Prada) directs from a screenplay written by Allan Loeb (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, 21).

The behind-the-scenes creative team included director of photography Maryse Alberti (Creed), production designer Beth Mickle (Whiskey Tango Foxtrot), editor Andrew Marcus (American Ultra) and costume designer Leah Katznelson (How to Be Single).  The music was composed by Theodore Shapiro (Trumbo).

Playing over end credits is a special version of the new song “Let’s Hurt Tonight,” performed by platinum-selling Grammy nominees OneRepublic.
