Concussion Trailer 2
Will Smith examines the “hard hitting” true story in the new trailer for Concussion. View trailer below.
Will Smith plays Dr. Bennet Omalu, the forensic neuropathologist who made the first discovery of CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy) and fought for the truth to be known. Concussion is based on the David vs. Goliath journey of Dr. Omalu, who treats the football-related brain trauma of a pro player while fighting to bring awareness to the public. In his search for the truth behind the devastating malady, Omalu’s quest humanizes the price paid by professional athletes in impact sports but also by people who challenge the status quo as it exposes the political, cultural and corporate interests that fuel the business of sports.
This new trailer shows most scenes from the first one, while adding new footage. Thus, its pretty much the same. Regardless, Concussion looks to be powerful movie (will probably be nominated in the upcoming award season) and very insightful to watch (especially with a lot of concussion case coming forward from former NFL players).
Concussion “hits” theaters on this year on Christmas day (December 25th, 2015)
