Here’s The New Trailer For the NFL Brain Injury Movie ‘Concussion’ (Video)
The controversial film “Concussion” hits theaters on Christmas Day, and it seems to be getting flack from not just the NFL, who are on the defensive from allegations of CTE, but also critics and skeptics saying that the film took it easy on the league at the league’s request. The film follows a Nigerian doctor (played by Will Smith) as he uncovers the link between repeated head trauma and permanent disabilities.
In the film he takes on the NFL, and while it would be nice to think the producers of the film did the same thing, Concussion might not be as harsh an indictment as one would hope.
The film also features Luke Wilson, Alec Baldwin, and Paul Reiser, and is based on GQ‘s exposé of head trauma in the NFL, “Game Brain.”
