Jared Leto Joker performance

Method acting is nothing new among the stars of Hollywood movies. Names such as Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro, Daniel Day-Lewis and more are known for taking a role and staying in that role through the entirety of production, whether they’re shooting a scene or not. And when it comes to his comic book role in Suicide Squad, actor Jared Leto decided to throw himself into the Joker the same way.

Concussion NFL controversy

Last week brought the first trailer for the professional football set drama Concussion starring Will Smith. The movie doesn’t arrive until Christmas Day when we’re well into the next season of football, but there’s already controversy surrounding the film due to some cuts that Sony Pictures reportedly made to the film in order to avoid clashing with the NFL.

For those who don’t know, Concussion follows Smith as Dr. Bennet Omalu, a forensic neuropathologist who discovers the first case of CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a progressive degenerative disease) in a pro football player. The doctor tries to alert the public to his findings, but the NFL denies his conclusions and has stopped his efforts to get the organization to address these problems at every turn.

The controversy that has surfaced comes from e-mails between Sony Pictures Entertainment, director Peter Landesman and Will Smith’s representatives where they discuss how to make the movie without antagonizing the NFL or “kicking the hornet’s nest” as one e-mail puts it. Find out more about the Concussion movie NFL controversy below! Read More »
