The first trailer for Will Smith‘s new film Collateral Beauty has just been released.
Here’s a synopsis: When a successful New York advertising executive (Smith) experiences a deep personal tragedy and retreats from life entirely, his colleagues devise a drastic plan to force him to confront his grief in a surprising and profoundly human way.
Will Smith poses for a photo with British Airways pilots and crew during an exclusive Q&A about his role in his latest blockbuster Suicide Squad on Sunday (August 7) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
The 47-year-old actor spoke about the perception of the Middle East in other parts of the world.
“In terms of Islamophobia in America, for me that’s why it’s important to show up,” Will said (via Yahoo.) “The Middle East can’t allow Fox News to be the arbiter of the imagery, you know. So cinema is a huge way to be able to deliver the truth of the soul of a place to a global audience.”
“I definitely don’t think a gay leading man would have the same opportunities as a straight leading man,” Jared said. “I don’t think that. Not for a single second. I don’t know if that’s offensive or not, but that’s my thought right now. It shouldn’t be that way. I don’t think you’ll have as many opportunities. And I think you could say the same for minorities…. I think that this is still a very conservative business.”
Will Smith grabs the mic while making an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert held at the Ed Sullivan Theater on Tuesday (August 2) in New York City.
The 47-year-old actor talked the current state of politics, playing Deadshot in his anticipated film Suicide Squad, and even took part in a skit with Stephen, where they stare up at the night sky and ponder some of life’s deepest questions.
During the commercial break, Stephen‘s house band – Jon Batiste and Stay Human – started playing Will‘s classic hit “Summertime” and he couldn’t resist but join in for a surprise performance – Watch below!
