CBS Films has premiered the first trailer for Peter Berg’s Boston marathon bombing drama “Patriots Day” starring Mark Wahlberg. Marking their second collaboration together this year following “Deepwater Horizon,” the story is set in the aftermath of that act of terror.
Police Sergeant Tommy Saunders (Wahlberg) joins courageous survivors, first responders and investigators in a race against the clock to hunt down the bombers before they strike again in what became the most sophisticated manhunt in law enforcement history.
The film weaves together stories of actual people on the ground including Special Agent Richard DesLauriers (Kevin Bacon), Police Commissioner Ed Davis (John Goodman), Sergeant Jeffrey Pugliese (J.K. Simmons) and nurse Carol Saunders (Michelle Monaghan).
Melissa Benoist, Michael Beach, Jimmy O. Yang, Vincent Curatola, Alex Wolff, James Colby, Themo Melikidze, Rachel Brosnahan and Christopher O’Shea also star. The film will open in New York, Los Angeles and Boston on December 21st ahead of a January 13th 2017 wide release.
