Check out this trailer for “Patriots Day,” a movie about the Boston Marathon bombing and the following manhunt for the two terrorists that committed the heinous act.
Filming for the movie finished up back in June, but it was only recently that CBS Films released the first trailer for “Patriots Day”.
The film has had very mixed reviews from residents of Boston with several people denying the film rights to film in certain locations, such as Laurel Street in Watertown, which was intended to be used to recreate the shootout that took place between police and the Tsarnaev brothers on the actual location.
“Patriots Day” was filmed in several locations in Massachusetts, including Quincy, Boston and at the Boston Marathon 2016 finish line in Copley Square.
The film has several big name stars such as Mark Wahlberg, who plays Sgt. Tommy Saunders, a composite character based on several real officers. Michelle Monaghan plays his wife, Carol Saunders. John Goodman plays Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis, Kevin Bacon plays Richard DesLauriers who is a former FBI Special Agent in Charge of the Boston division, and J.K Simmons plays Watertown police sergeant Jeffrey Pugliese.
The film first debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 13 during the festival’s “In Conversation With Mark Wahlberg” event.
The film has a limited release to theaters in Boston, New York City and Los Angeles on December 21, before having a wide release on January 13, 2017.
