The first trailer for sports drama Concussion has appeared online today, which you can view below, as well as the film’s first poster…
The drama stars Will Smith (Focus) and is based on the story of American immigrant Dr. Bennet Omalu, “the brilliant forensic neuropathologist who made the first discovery of CTE, a football-related brain trauma, in a pro player and fought for the truth to be known. Omalu’s emotional quest puts him at dangerous odds with one of the most powerful institutions in the world.”
Based on the GQ article by Jeanne Marie Laskas called ‘Game Brain’, the film is written and directed by Peter Landesman (Kill The Messenger) and co-stars Alec Baldwin (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Belle), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Suicide Squad), Luke Wilson (Old School) and David Morse (The Rock).
Concussion is set for release on Christmas Day.
