ICYMI: Trailer Roundup, Including Will Smith’s ‘Collateral Beauty’

by

We’ve got a few new trailers to show you, including the one that might earn Will Smith another Oscar nod: Collateral Beauty.

He plays Howard, an ad exec who goes into a tailspin after he loses his child. His colleagues (Edward Norton, Kate Winslet) try to reach him but can’t. The only thing Howard can do is write grief-stricken letters to the three things he thinks has failed him – Time, Love and Death. Suddenly, his letters are answered in the form of Jacob Latimore (Time), Keira Knightley (Love) and Helen Mirren (Death), who attempt to bring Howard back to the living. It opens December 16.

Underworld: Blood Wars

In this next installment in the blockbuster franchise, Vampire death dealer Selene (Kate Beckinsale) must fend off brutal attacks from both the Lycan clan and the Vampire faction that betrayed her.With her only allies, David (Theo James) and his father Thomas (Charles Dance), she must stop the eternal war between Lycans and Vampires, even if it means she has to make the ultimate sacrifice. It’s always about sacrifice with this one. It opens January 6, 2017.

USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage

Remember the classic monologue Quint (Robert Shaw) delivers in Jaws on why he’ll never put on a lifejacket again? He describes what happened when the WWII warship, the USS Indianapolis — on a secret mission to deliver the A-bomb that wiped out Hiroshima — was sunk by a Japanese submarine on their way back. Being that mission was so top secret, no one knew where the Indianapolis was and so the men had to wait days in the water, as sharks closed in. Quint: “11,000 men went into the water, 316 men come out, and the sharks took the rest…” Well, they’ve made a movie about it, starring Nicolas Cage. This trailer pretty much tells the whole story.
