First Look: Will Smith in ‘Concussion’

Will Smith may be returning to his hip-hop roots and teasing a tour with DJ Jazzy Jeff, but fans of his work as an actor can see him in action this December.

Smith will star as Dr. Bennet Omalu, a forensic pathologist who discovered chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a disease that causes brain trauma for football players in the compelling film, Concussion.

The discovery leads him into an intense fight against major corporations, threatens the NFL and ultimately shows his passion and dedication to revealing the truth.

Get a first look at the film below.

Concussion hits theaters on Dec. 25.
