Will Smith has been attempting to fight off his recent box office fatigue by coming back to the silver screen in a big way. He starred in Focus earlier this year and is starring in Warner Bros.’ hail mary pass Suicide Squad next year, but in between we’ve got this Peter Landesman-directed drama about Bennet Omalu, the neuropathologist who discovered the connection between concussion and death in NFL players.
This will be Smith’s first notable foray into dramatic territory since Seven Pounds from 2008; do you think he’s still got it? Peter King of Sports Illustrated debuted the trailer via Twitter early this morning (August 31), so check it out below.
Concussion also stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Albert Brooks, Alec Baldwin, and Luke Wilson.
