Seven Pounds Movie Review and Critic “Seven Pounds” reunites Will Smith with the filmmaking team behind the pic that earned him his last Oscar nomination, “The Pursuit of Happyness.” Returning to the helm is Italian director Gabriele Muccino. Oscar winner Steve Tisch (”Forrest Gump”), Todd Black and Jason Blumenthal are part of the producer lineup again. And, among others, Oscar-winning editor Hughes Winborne (”Crash”) is also back. Smith plays an IRS agent “with a fateful secret who embarks on an extraordinary journey of redemption by forever changing the lives of seven strangers,” according to Sony. Pic hasn’t been screened yet, and its plot is deliberately being kept under wraps (because it could be seen as a bit of a downer).
Suffice it to say, though, the story promises those important kudo-baiting hallmarks: life-changing love and, of course, redemption. A movie review and critic By SHARON SWART The first trailer for the Columbia Pictures drama Seven Pounds, starring Will Smith, has been leaked onto the web. In the film, Smith plays Ben Thomas, an IRS agent with a fateful secret who embarks on an extraordinary journey of redemption by forever changing the lives of seven strangers. It is a project that has reunited Smith with the director and producers of The Pursuit of Happyness. It also stars Rosario Dawson, Michael Ealy, Barry Pepper and Woody Harrelson. I know it’s early in the morning and my eyes are prone to playing tricks on me, but this looks interesting — like the sort of interesting that ends in Oscar Buzz.
