Seven Pounds is hailed as Will Smith's most dramatic role to-date. During its promotional stage, the film's production company refused to explain the title or the overall plot. Their marketing tactic didn't go over well, as the film failed to hit No. 1 at the box office. The movie is one of Smith's lowest grossing films ever. The actor's superb acting didn't get the attention it deserved due to bad promotion. Seven Pounds is the second film in Smith's career where he sacrifices his life to save other people.
