Watch: Will Smith as Dr. Omalu in Powerful New 'Concussion' Trailer
"I am the wrong person to have discovered this." Sony Pictures has debuted a fantastic new trailer for Peter Landesman's Concussion, the upcoming powerful drama starring Will Smith as Dr. Bennet Omalu, the soft-spoken neuropathologist who made the first discovery of CTE, a football-related brain trauma. This story is controversial just based on the subject alone, and the way these trailers seem to indicate that the NFL didn't like what Dr. Omalu was discovering with his investigations. The cast includes Alec Baldwin, Albert Brooks, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Stephen Moyer, Eddie Marsan and more. This looks good, but there's something a bit wonky with this trailer. Still looking forward to seeing Smith at the top of his game.
Here's the second official trailer for Peter Landesman's Concussion, found direct on YouTube:
Will Smith stars in the incredible true David vs. Goliath story of Dr. Bennet Omalu, the brilliant forensic neuropathologist who made the first discovery of CTE, a football-related brain trauma, in a pro player. Concussion is both written and directed by American filmmaker Peter Landesman, of only the film Parkland and a few scripts previously. This is based on the true story of Dr. Bennet Omalu and the struggles he faced attempting to make the sport safer for players. Sony Pictures will release Concussion in theaters everywhere starting December 25th, Christmas Day, later this year. For more follow @ConcussionMovie.
