The Trailer For Mark Wahlberg's Boston Bombing Film Looks Absolutely Insane
At 2:49 pm on Monday, April 15, 2013, a pressure cooker bomb exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Boylston Street. Approximately 12 seconds later, a second bomb exploded less than 250 yards away.
As a result of the blasts, three civilians were killed and about 264 people were injured. The city of Boston was rocked.
However, life does go on, and despite the terrorist actions of Chechen brothers Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the city of Boston healed and continues to uphold the annual tradition of Marathon Monday.
This past April marked three years since the Boston Bombing occurred, and while the city of Boston constantly moves forward, it never forgets.
One of Boston's most famous sons is Mark Whalberg, and it appears he has been working with director Peter Berg to immortalize the events of April 15, 2013 on the big screen.
On Wednesday, October 5, the official trailer dropped for "Patriots Day," a dramatic film that appears to replay the horrific details of the Boston bombing.
As you can see in the video above, Mark Wahlberg plays a Boston police officer who was stationed at the end of the Boston Marathon on Boylston Street where the bombs went off.
The trailer starts out slow, and even though you know what's coming, you're still going to find yourself on the edge of your seat as the anticipation builds before the blasts.
I was starting to sweat just watching this two-minute clip, so I can only imagine what it's going to be like to watch the full film in theaters.
"Patriots Day" will reportedly have a limited release on December 21, 2016, followed by a wide release on January 13, 2017.
After showing the lead up to and the bombing, "Patriots Day" will reportedly chronicle the manhunt of the Tsarnaevs and the resulting shootout.
In addition to Wahlberg, "Patriots Day" will feature John Goodman, Michelle Monaghan, JK Simmons and Kevin Bacon.
