Will Smith pursues happiness again -- this time for seven complete strangers.

One of the few actors in Hollywood who can reliably rotate blockbusters and Oscar bait, Will Smith is in the latter again with the fall drama 'Seven Pounds.'

Plot details, though, are a little scarce at this point. Even a look at this first trailer will leave you wondering what exactly Will's up to.

But here's what we can gather: He plays an IRS agent with a deep dark secret who seeks moral redemption by doing big-time, life-changing favors for seven strangers. In other words, he's sort of like a more serious and tortured version of Ty Pennington.

'Seven Pounds' opens in theaters December 19.
