The cast and crew assemble for a farewell Suicide Squad picture. It's worth taking a closer look at...
Filming is now complete on the second DC movie universe project for 2016. Director David Ayer has now officially confirmed over Twitter that principal photography is done on Suicide Squad, and whilst there may yet be some pick up work to be done, he's got the bulk of the footage that'll make up the film.
Ayer has marked the end of production by posting a picture of (most of) the cast and crew of Suicide Squad. It's worth zooming in too - how many Harley Quinns can you spot in there for a start?

Will Smith is back in a big way! The new trailer for "Concussion" just dropped, and we're getting to see Smith really show off his acting chops in the dramatic clip. Check out the trailer above! In the movie, Smith plays Nigerian-American neuropathologist, Dr. Bennet Omalu, who discovers the link between football-related head trauma and the nerve disease Cte. It definitely looks like the odds are against Smith in the intense trailer, as going to bat against the NFL seems like quite the undertaking. Alec Baldwin, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Luke Wilson and Mike O'Malley also star alongside Will in the sports drama, which was written and directed by Peter Landesman. We can't wait to see 46-year-old in action when "Concussion" drops December 25, 2015! What do you think about the actor's new role? Sound off below and check out the gallery to see more men of the '90s then and now! Read »

The discovery of a football-related brain trauma and the NFL's attempts to obfuscate the severity of the problem will be the focus of a new drama titled Concussion, which released its first trailer on Monday 10 days before the 2015 season kicks off. In the film, Smith plays Nigerian-born Dr. Bennet Omalu, a professor in the Uc Davis Department of Medical Pathology and Laboratory Medicine who discovered the link between chronic traumatic encephalopathy (Cte) and football players. Concussion, written and directed by investigative journalist-turned-filmmaker Peter Landesman, hits theaters December 25th.
Omalu first »
Will Smith has taken some time off from saving the Earth from aliens (and his children) in this December’s Concussion. Sporting a Nigerian accent and scrubs, Smith takes on the meaty role in the true story of Dr. Bennet Omalu.
Omalu, before heading to the States to revolutionize sports medecine, lived as a refugee in Nigeria during the civil war, constantly under fire by the Nigerian Air Force. Surviving these circumstances, Omalu became a physician by the age of twenty-one. In 2002, he discovered Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (Cte), a type of chronic brain damage that factors into the deaths of many professional athletes.
In Concussion, Omalu (Smith) defends his research against his detractors, including the NFL – that would like nothing more than to have Omalu’s findings swept under the carpet.

Will Smith stars in Concussion, a dramatic thriller based on the incredible true David vs. Goliath story of American immigrant Dr. Bennet Omalu, the brilliant forensic neuropathologist who made the first discovery of Cte, a football-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 institutions in the world.
Look for Concussion on Christmas Day.

Will Smith's performance in Concussion is already giving us goosebumps. The actor plays Dr. Bennet Omalu, the forensic neuropathologist who challenges the NFL after he discovers a new disease, chronic traumatic encephalopathy (known as Cte), in football players. When he brings it to the league's attention, they do everything they can to silence him. It may seem dramatic, but the movie is based on a true story. Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Alec Baldwin, Luke Wilson, and Stephen Moyer all costar in the drama, which is out on Christmas Day. (Because nothing says Christmas like exposing how much the NFL has tried to lie to people about a serious disease!) »
With summer drawing to a close, the season of movies on the hunt for potential awards is in full swing, and here comes another in the shape of Concussion, which stars Will Smith. The first trailer has arrived online and can be watched below. Parkland director Peter Landesman adapted Jeanne Marie Laskas’ GQ article Game Brain and has called the shots on the movie. The piece followed Dr. Bennet Omalu, a forensic neuropathologist who made the crucial first discovery of concussive head trauma in a National Football League player and strove to bring awareness to the general public. Landesman’s take has already been described as an NFL-centric The Insider, putting a human face on a story about a thorny issue and the commercial interests involved in making sure the news doesn’t spread too far. If it can avoid the big pitfalls of prestige issue dramas, it could have a shot at some trophies. »
The NFL probably isn't going to like this. But it's a topic that must be discussed, and what better forum than a crowded movie theater on Christmas morning. Sure there will be plenty of fun movies opening on December 25. But with the NFL season really heating up, a lot of fans are going to want to go behind the scenes of one of the more controversial issues. Concussion stars Will Smith and is based on a true story as it delves into NFL brain trauma. Sony Pictures has released the first trailer and poster for this important topic.

We.ve been hearing about Will Smith.s football concussion drama for a while, and now we have our first look through the first Concussion trailer. The Suicide Squad actor delivers a dramatic performance as the NFL transforms into a evil conglomerate. Watch the footage below. It seems crazy to think that at some point in our history there were people who believed football players crashing their heads together repeatedly wouldn.t have any longterm effects, but that.s the true story Concussion is telling. Smith portrays Dr. Bennet Omalu, who discovers a rare brain disease incited by repeated head injuries. National Football League safeties Dave Duerson (Thor: The Dark World.s Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) and Andre Waters (Hot Pursuit.s Richard T. Jones) were two of the players he studied, and Omalu determined they were suffering from the neurodegenerative disease known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy. When Omalu first brings this »
Based on a 2009 GQ article, the film from Sony Pictures tells the real-life story of forensic neuropathologist Dr. Bennet Omalu, who discovered a link between football injuries and early-onset dementia that, in some cases, led to death. He became at odds with the NFL after diagnosing football players, including Dave Duerson (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) and Andre Waters (Richard T. Jones) with Cte, a brain condition caused by repeated head trauma.
“Concussion” hits theaters on Christmas Day.

The first trailer for Concussion is out, and it holds little back. The sports drama tells the controversial story of the doctors who proved the link between former NFL players affected by major neurological problems due to head injuries suffered during their careers and the NFL's denials of any such connection. Concussion follows the story of Dr. Bennet Omalu (Will Smith) who — after studying the brains of ex-pros such as Dave Duerson (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) and Andre Waters (Richard T. Jones) — discovers that they were suffering from chronic traumatic encephalopathy (Cte), a neuro-degenerative disease caused by repeated trauma to the head.

Bryan Cranston is slowly but surely achieving pop culture domination. After God knows how many Emmys (four) for his performance in AMC’s “Breaking Bad,” plus a Tony Award for playing Lbj in “All the Way,” it now seems Cranston will be going, well, all the way in his bid for hardest working actor in the biz. “Trumbo,” directed by Jay Roach with a script by John McNamara, is based on the life of 1940s Hollywood screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, whose career hit a roadblock when he was blacklisted for being a suspected Communist. His fight against the U.S. government and studio heads for freedom of speech implicated John Wayne, Kirk Douglas, and countless others. Joining Cranston in the title role is Diane Lane as his wife, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Louis C.K., Elle Fanning, Michael Stuhlbarg, and John Goodman. Helen Mirren gives what looks to be a juicy supporting performance as Hollywood gossip columnist Hedda Hopper. »

Earlier this week, we reported that Warner Bros.' highly-anticipated comic book adaptation Suicide Squad has wrapped production, with stars Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn) and Jai Courtney (Boomerang) stopping by a young girl's lemonade stand to help a worthy cause, on the way to their wrap party.

Barring a few last minute sessions in Harley Quinn’s impromptu tattoo parlour, David Ayer has now officially called a wrap on his adaptation of DC’s Suicide Squad, and the director took to Twitter to commemorate the occasion.
Assembling Task Force X together for one final shot – along with the cast and crew who helped make the film possible – Ayer took a photo to celebrate the end of production on the Toronto set, and you can catch a glimpse of the image in question down below.
Taken from what is likely to be a Kessler crane, it’s a little difficult to make out the leading members of Ayer’s Suicide Squad in the snap, though the majority of the main players seemed to have assembled at the front of the director’s ensemble.
