#MovieMatters| Concussion (Movie)

Cast: Will Smith, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Alec Baldwin, Albert Brooks

Director: Peter Landesman

Runtime: 123 minutes

Released: February 12

“Concussion” artfully depicts the profoundly insightful tale of Dr. Bennet Omalu – a Nigerian coroner residing in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania who indentifies a pattern amongst veteran NFL players – as he becomes the targeted subject of intensely scrutinized media persecution versus kudos in strategically analyzing the fascinating beautiful struggle of professional football athletes and their most devastating opponent – mental health.

The hard-hitting Peter Landesman-directed motion picture conveniently highlights conspiratorial whistle-blowing, contemporary sports science, and the million dollar question that remains fundamentally posed beyond the midst of the controversy: Does the most popular sport in the nation prove detrimental to one’s overall wellbeing in the long run? “Concussion” is simultaneously the question and the answer.

The honest, middle-of-the-road “Concussion” boasts populated stock characters throughout the offering. However, the in-depth movie thoroughly debunks the traditional myths which are overlooked, whilst scoring a vital touch down in smash mouth style amongst dedicated football aficionados and the casual viewer. Nothing hits harder than the truth.

Working with Zayn on his debut album, noted producer Malay (Frank Ocean) described him as “pure genius. An artists’ artist. A shining star with a genuine heart.” Zayn recently received a surge of attention with his Billboard magazine cover where they affirm “judging from his music, he’s poised to impress the dominant music geeks of the day, who care less about guitar-slingers than artful practitioners of beats and atmosphere.”

The captivating “Suicide Squad” trailer prominently showcases a group of villainous anti-hero vigilantes spearheaded by Deadshot (Will Smith) and Joker (Jared Leto), who undertake a heroic mission in exchange for being freed from imprisonment.

The global buzz heightened to immeasurable levels for “Suicide Squad” when the trailer officially premiered during The CW’s “DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League” special; a tactic which highlights Warner Bros firm intentions to build a shared cinematic universe centered around DC superheroes to essentially rival Marvel’s Hollywood blockbuster movies.

“Suicide Squad” is released in theaters on August 5.
