The official synopsis is as follows:
In the aftermath of an unspeakable act of terror, Police Sergeant Tommy Saunders 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, Police Commissioner Ed Davis, Sergeant Jeffrey Pugliese and nurse Carol Saunders 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.
While the teaser last month didn’t show much other than who stars in the film, the official trailer here definitely intends to show audiences that they’re in for a tearjerker here and how people overcame evil in the wake of the Boston Marathon Bombing. Granted, the majority of Berg’s films are better than the trailers suggest so I am still looking forward to seeing this film. The cast of Patriots Day includes Mark Wahlberg, Kevin Bacon, John Goodman, J.K. Simmons, Michelle Monaghan, Alex Wolff, Themo Melikidze, James Colby, Michael Beach, Rachel Brosnahan, Christopher O’Shea, Jake Picking, Jimmy O. Yang, Vincent Curatola, Melissa Benoist and Khandi Alexander.
Patriots Day is scheduled for cinematic release on the 13th January 2017.
