When blockbuster superstar Will Smith stars in a serious movie, all Oscarologists should take his award chances seriously. In the past, Will Smith proved to be a heavyweight academy contender by scoring nominations for "Ali" and "The Pursuit of Happyness."
Now here's the trailer for his December release, "Seven Pounds," a title that refers to the weight of the human heart. It features Will Smith as a guilt-ridden IRS agent who helps seven strangers while trying to redeem his own sordid past. Among them is a woman (Rosario Dawson) with a heart condition with whom he falls in love.
