The marketers behind Will Smith's upcoming top-secret Seven Pounds certainly have their work cut out for them — to give away the film's premise is to ruin its surprise ending, allegedly, which is why the trailer reveals nothing and posters for the movie carry the meaningless tagline "Seven Names. Seven Strangers. One Secret." So, they can thank New York Post critic Lou Lumenick for spoiling everything in his discussion with fellow Post critic Kyle Smith on the year's best movies yesterday.
