NFL players hoping to catch the "Concussion" movie can see a screening anywhere for free, courtesy of Sony Pictures.
Sony has announced that it’s providing all current and former NFL players and their families the chance to see the movie free of charge by showing their NFLPA cards.
The movie stars Will Smith as Nigerian doctor Bennet Omalu, the man who approaches National Football League with information about the dangers of football-related brain damage.
“This is a movie for the players, so we wanted to give them a chance to see it before its nationwide release and free admission during its run in theaters. The movie is so inspiring – Will Smith gives one of the best performances of his career as Dr. Bennet Omalu, a man who shined a light on the truth. The odds were stacked against him, but he had the truth on his side, and now, his discovery is all anyone’s talking about. We think the players will enjoy watching this movie about Dr. Omalu’s incredible courage – courage that changed the game.”
Concussion opened up in theaters on Christmas Day.
