Will Smith plays doctor Bennet Omalu, The Hollywood Reporter says, who happens to be the first person to discover a neurodegenerative disease caused by repeated trauma to the brain.

Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (or CTE) has some nasty consequences, including memory loss and depression. The trailer shows Omalu fighting the ruthless NFL, which is obviously threatened by the discovery – The Verge has more details on how that medical discovery eventually affected the football landscape.

Check out the full trailer below.
