"Concussion" movie still, 2015. Will Smith as Dr. Bennet Omalu. PLOT: A brilliant forensic neuropathologist (Smith) makes the first discovery of CTE, a football-related brain trauma, in a pro player and fights for the truth to be known. His emotional quest puts him at dangerous odds with the NFL, who try to downplay the issue in hopes it would go away.
"Draft Day" movie still, 2014. L to R: Denis Leary, Frank Langella, Kevin Costner. PLOT: At the NFL Draft, general manager Sonny Weaver (Costner) has the opportunity to rebuild his team when he trades for the number one pick. He must decide what he's willing to sacrifice on a life-changing day for a few hundred young men with NFL dreams.
"Balls Out" movie still, 2014. PLOT: With marriage, graduation, and the real world looming on the horizon, fifth year senior Caleb Fuller (Jake Lacy) reassembles the ol' team of misfits for one last epic run in Intramural football. Co-starring SNL stars Kate McKinnon, Jay Pharoah, Beck Bennett. This raunchy comedy was so badly received that it dumped its original movie poster and changed its title to "Intramural".
"Touchback" movie still, 2011. L to R: Kurt Russell, Barry Sanders. PLOT: A man (Brian Presley) looks back 15 years to the injury that ended his career as a promising high-school football player. This no-name movie was able to get Russell, Sanders, Christine Lahti, and Melanie Lynskey as co-stars. Thanks to limited distribution, it only earned $204,000 at the box office.
