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.

What a misleading description. CTE has been around since the 1930s. All this guy did was determine that in fact NFL players were suffering from it. CTE isn't limited to football and it sure as heck wasn't discovered by this guy unless he time traveled. Political correct nonsense.

You make it sound like what they knew in the 1930s is the same as what we know now. That's hardly the case, the difference is night and day.

Wow. This movie looks very good. It really makes me want to go find out more about the true story. Frankly, it always surprises me to see how good of an actor Will Smith turned out to be.

I admire Will Smith. He has none of the chances to be serious actor but he does not give up doing 'serious' movies. I will consider watching this probably based on that sole fact ...

I'm not sure I understand this comment. Smith, when he's in the right roles, is one of the better actors out there. Bagger Vance, Pursuit of Happyness - that movie alone is worth giving him all of the praise, Ali was a pretty good performance, Seven Pounds was great. He makes bad choices but his best choices are leagues above most others'.

Both comments are proofs what I've written in the first place. Yes, I do consider him as a good actor, but not very good one. On that, I don't agree with you. Yeah, some nice movies there, but nothing special and not good roles for him. I see his quality in Men in Black, Focus, Independence Day, even Enemy of the State, but pursuit of Happiness is a simple experiment. Yeah, it feels like a good story, but not for him. That story does not belong to him. He does not have the quality as an actor to perform a drama since he's an entertainer, a showman. And as such I like him the most. And I admire him in his wrong believe that he's something more. Not even close. I believe that this is the reason why he's so good in funny, entertaining roles ...

Two comments citing excellent Will Smith dramatic roles are proof that Will Smith is not a very good actor? That logic I don't follow.

It's not about the logic, but ... Never mind ...

Pursuit of Happyness was really good.

His Igbo (Nigerian) accent is shite, but I know the source material is really interesting. Hoping this turns out well!
