Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will have a box-office challenger come the holidays.

Warner Bros. has moved the release date of Collateral Beauty, the ensemble drama fronted by Will Smith, to Dec. 16. The spot was previously occupied by another of the studio’s project’s, Chicken Soup for the Soul, which has been bumped to 2017.

Collateral Beauty comes from director David Frankel (The Devil Wears Prada). When a successful New York advertising executive (Smith) experiences a deep personal tragedy and retreats from life entirely, his colleagues devise a drastic plan to help him recover. Helen Mirren, Edward Norton, Naomie Harris, and Michael Pena also star.
