Anticipation (Before Trailer): 65/100
Anticipation (After Trailer): 65/100
While the cast of Concussion looks impressive (from Will Smith to Albert Brooks and everyone in between), there’s something about the trailer’s attempt to make the NFL seem more like a rogue government agency motivated to stop Dr. Bennet Omalu (played by Smith) and his study of head injuries and the effects of Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). Not that the NFL isn’t capable but it all seems a bit Hollywood.
It’ll be interesting to see how Concussion performs in what looks to be an extremely crowded and promising Christmas movie season.
