Will Smith stars in Columbia Pictures’ Concussion, based on the incredible true David vs. Goliath story of Dr. Bennet Omalu (Smith), the brilliant forensic neuropathologist who made the first discovery of CTE, a sports-related brain trauma, in a pro player and fought for the truth to be known. Watch the newly-released trailer of Smith’s upcoming dramatic thriller “Concussion” below.
