More Will Smith Looking Oscar-Worthy Serious in Seven Pounds

My guess is that you can forget about a scene where Will Smith shouts out the line, “Now that’s what I’m talking about!” happening in his new movie “Seven Pounds”. For one, this has “This is Will Smith, the serious actor, so give the man an Oscar already!” written all over it. Mind you, Smith has proven that he can do serious pretty well, with “Ali” and “The Pursuit of Happyness”. And being that “Happyness” has been Smith’s most dramatically acclaimed role to date, it was the smart choice for the Smithster to re-team with the film’s director, Gabriele Muccino, for the drama “Seven Pounds”. Here are more images from that upcoming movie.

Ben (Will Smith) is an IRS agent who is depressed and guilt-ridden about mistakes from his past. He sets out to make amends by helping seven strangers. When he meets Emily (Rosario Dawson), a beautiful woman with a heart condition, he falls in love with her, thereby complicating his plans. Woody Harrelson also appears as a blind pianist who befriends Ben.

Starring Will Smith, Rosario Dawson, Woody Harrelson, Michael Ealy, Barry Pepper, Madison Pettis, Sarah Jane Morris, Bill Smitrovich, Elpidia Carrillo, Bojana Novakovic, Robinne Lee, and directed by Gabriele Muccino.
