Producers Ridley Scott and Giannina Scott said, "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."
Omalu is the forensic pathologist who fought to make his research known about the brain damage suffered by profession football players.
Complimentary admission will be given to players and one guest when they present their NFLPA membership card at any Cinemark theater.
Along with Smith, "Concussion" also stars Alec Baldwin, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Albert Brooks.
