This trailer has been online for a little while, but I accidentally forgot to add it to the site and now it is here as Will Smith stars alongside his son Jaden in his latest outing and this one looks like it is going to tug and tug at the heart strings.
The film is called The Pursuit of Happyness and Will Smith stars as Chris Gardner, a family man struggling to make ends meet. Despite his valiant attempts to help keep the family afloat, the mother (Thandie Newton) of his five-year-old son Christopher (Jaden Christopher Syre Smith) is buckling under the constant strain of financial pressure. No longer able to cope, she reluctantly decides to leave.
Chris, now a single father, continues to doggedly pursue a better-paying job using every sales skill he knows. He lands an internship at a prestigious stock brokerage firm, and although there is no salary, he accepts, hopeful he will end the program with a job and a promising future. Without a financial cushion, Chris and his son are soon evicted from their apartment and forced to sleep in shelters, bus stations, bathrooms or wherever they can find refuge for the night.
Despite his troubles, Chris continues to honor his commitment as a loving and caring father, using the affection and trust his son has placed in him as an impetus to overcome the obstacles he faces.
The film is set to open on December 15, 2006. To check out the trailer click here or on the pic above and enjoy, this one looks like it could be really good.
