Will Smith is one of cinema's biggest stars and he is set to return to the big screen in February with drama Concussion.



2016 looks set to be a big and very successful year for Smith - he is going to be starring in a small film called Suicide Squad in the summer - but Concussion is the first of his movies that's not to be missed.

Smith has already picked up a Best Actor nomination at the Golden Globes for his performance in the film and you can see him in action in these two great new clips from the movie:

Concussion sees Smith take on the real-life role of Dr. Bennet Omalu, who took on the NFL when they tried to suppress his research on the brain damage suffered by professional football players.

The movie marks the return of Peter Landesman to the director's chair in what will be only the second feature film of his career; it comes three years after he made his debut with Parkland. As well as being in the director's chair, Landesman has also penned the film's screenplay.

A terrific cast has been assembled as Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Luke Wilson, Alec Baldwin, Stephen Moyer, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Eddie Marsan, and Albert Brooks all-star alongside Smith.

Will Smith stars in Concussion, a dramatic thriller based on the incredible true David vs. Goliath story of Dr. Bennet Omalu, 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.

Omalu's emotional quest puts him at dangerous odds with one of the most powerful - and beloved - institutions in the world.

The awards season is well under way and Smith already has a big nomination under his belt - thanks to the Golden Globes - could Concussion land him in the Oscar race once again?

Concussion is released 12th February 2016.
