Will Smith Discusses "Seven Pounds"
Box office king Will Smith stars in the dramatic movie "Seven Pounds," a much more intense film than we're used to seeing the popular actor take on. It's difficult to discuss Smith's role without giving too much away, but suffice to say he's a man tormented by his past who attempts to set things right the only way he sees how.

Will Smith takes a dramatic turn in "Seven Pounds" directed by Gabriele Muccino ("The Pursuit of Happyness") from a screenplay by Grant Nieporte. Smith plays a man who helps seven strangers, and Michael Ealy plays his very concerned brother.
