Will Smith Is An Enigma Wrapped In Confusing Hidden In A What?

A new trailer showed up this weekend for a Will Smith drama from the director of The Pursuit of Happyness (aka The Best Director) called Seven Pounds, and it is one of the most confusing things I have ever seen.

Whoops. I think when you wrote “All Ben Thomas has is a plan” you meant to say “All Ben Thomas has is a coy smile.” I’ve never been more confused by a movie trailer. What is this movie about? It’s a stirring drama about a man whose name may or may not be Ben who goes around possibly helping but possibly not helping people. Perfect. I’m going on Fandango right now to reserve my ticket because I can already tell that opening weekend is going to be insane on this one (opening weekend is not going to be insane on this one).
