A new trailer has been released for CBS Films’ upcoming drama Patriots Day. The Peter Berg directed film chronicles to tragic events of 2013s Boston marathon bombing and the events that occur immediately following the attack. Mark Wahlberg stars as Tommy Saunders, a Police Sergeant who joins the force of first responders and investigators in hunting down those responsible for the act.
The teaser trailer for Patriots Day a number of weeks back was one of the best teaser’s I’ve seen all year. Its ability to capture the real-life emotion of this horrible event was clear, something very little teasers are able to do. And a lot of the credit can be directed at Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg. As a team, the duo has made a living off of developing true life “American hero” stories, a la Lone Survivor and Deepwater Horizon. Lone Survivor was incredible and just watching Deepwater Horizon a few weeks ago, I was absolutely floored by Berg’s latest piece of work. Keeping in mind both those films and this trailer, Patriots Day is very high on my list for the rest of 2016.
Try to hold back the tears with the most recent trailer below, and let us know your thoughts in the comments. What did you think of the trailer? What are you expecting from Patriots Day?
