Patriots Day starring Mark Wahlberg will arrive in theaters on January 13th, 2017.
The film will tell the tale of the terrorist attack on the Boston marathon in the spring of 2013, and how law enforcement responded, and eventually brought the attackers to justice.
Here is the plot synopsis from Wiki .
In the aftermath of an unspeakable act of terror, Police Sergeant Tommy Saunders (Mark Wahlberg) joins courageous survivors, first responders and investigators in a race against the clock to hunt down the bombers before they strike again.
Weaving together the stories of Special Agent Richard DesLauriers (Kevin Bacon), Police Commissioner Ed Davis (John Goodman), Sergeant Jeffrey Pugliese (J.K. Simmons) and nurse Carol Saunders (Michelle Monaghan) this visceral and unflinching chronicle captures the suspense of the most sophisticated manhunt in law enforcement history and the strength of the people of Boston.
The trailer is spooky, as a person who has lived in Boston, and as a reporter who covered the eventual trial, this preview sent a chill up my spine.
The cast is top notch, the story is beyond inspirational, and the tone of the film seems to capture the horror of that fateful day.
We have posted the preview here.
