Final Patriots Day Trailer Promises Heartbreak And Human Spirit

There’s a lot to be said about 2016, including the fact that it brings not one, but two new Peter Berg movies, all within the last three months. While his first contribution, Deepwater Horizon, unfortunately (and rather undeservedly) didn’t make a huge impact, his next film, Patriots Day, promises something a little more rewarding. At least, if all the quotes thrown inside this new, final trailer are any indication of the final product.

Just like Lone Survivor and Deepwater Horizon, Patriots Day stars Mark Wahlberg and will dramatize a real-life tragedy, this time recreating the Boston Marathon bombing that occurred on April 15th, 2013, which resulted in the death of three citizens and an estimated 264 injured civilians. Berg’s acclaimed film focuses not only on the attack itself, but the four day manhunt that ensued afterwards. It’ll also follow how the people of Boston came together throughout this horrific incident.

Patriots Day Trailer Has Mark Wahlberg Tackle Terrorism On The Streets Of Boston

For the third time in as many years, director Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg will collaborate to present another true-life account of heroism, tragedy and the power of the human spirit. In 2013, it was Lone Survivor that brought both creatives together, and the pair have since reteamed for the white-knuckle ride known as Deepwater Horizon.

Touting an all-star ensemble and some truly edge-of-your-seat action sequences, Horizon was arguably better than it had any right to be, documenting the true tale of heroism buried beneath the messy Bp oil spill of 2010. Their latest project is called Patriots Day, one poised to shift the spotlight three years forward.

For on April 15, 2013, the city of Boston was rocked by a terrorist attack, one which resulted in the deaths of three civilians and hundreds of injuries to runners, bystanders and normal citizens going about their day. An attack on American soil was enough to

The first trailer for Peter Berg‘s second film of 2016 (following last month’s decent Deepwater Horizon) Patriots Day has just been released online.

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 make up the huge ensemble cast.

The film sees Berg re-team with current muse Mark Wahlberg for the telling of the true story of the Boston marathon bombing. Here’s the plot:

First Patriots Day Poster Remembers The Boston Strong

It’s one of three separate features in the works based on the tragic events of the 2013 terrorist attack – rubbing shoulders with both Boston Strong and indie drama Altar Rock – but it is CBS Films and Lionsgate’s Patriots Day that will sprint into theaters first come December.

Aligning with the recent July 4 celebrations, the studios have now premiered the poignant first poster for Peter Berg’s all-star drama, showcasing a series of shoelaces woven into the style of the famous Stars and Stripes.

At the tip-top of the Berg’s cast list is Mark Wahlberg – reuniting with the director after Lone Survivor – who leads the charge against the suspected offenders as Sgt. Tommy Saunders, a decorated officer in blue described as a “composite Boston Police Department officer who leads the manhunt for the chief suspects.”

Patriots Day, CBS Films and Lionsgate’s real-life drama based on the marathon bombings that rocked the city of Boston three years ago, is already a crowded affair. But we now have word that the studios have recruited one final trio to feature in Peter Berg’s Oscar-tipped thriller.

Movie Review – Demolition (2016)

Demolition, 2016.

Directed by Jean-Marc Vallée.

Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Naomi Watts, Chris Cooper, Judah Lewis, C.J. Wilson, Polly Draper, James Colby, and Heather Lind.

Synopsis:

As an investment banker struggles after losing his wife in a tragic car crash, his increasingly confessional series of letters to a vending machine company catch the attention of a customer service rep with whom he forms an unlikely connection.

Critiquing Jake Gyllenhaal led movies is quickly becoming frustrating. He is one of the most talented actors of our generation (and is in his prime to boot), but seems to be entering a loop where he is picking interesting characters to play, alongside getting to work with skilled directors (in this case it is Jean-Marc Vallée who coached Matthew McConaughey to a Best Actor Oscar victory with the excellent Dallas Buyers Club), only for the projects to pan out with shoddy execution and disappointment.

Michael Beach, Alex Wolff And Themo Melikidze Cap Off Ensemble Cast For Patriots’ Day

Now entering the final stages of pre-production, The Wrap is reporting that Peter Berg’s Boston marathon drama Patriots’ Day has carried out what is surely the last casting spree before filming gets underway, this time adding Michael Beach, Alex Wolff and Themo Melikidze to its jam-packed ensemble.

According to the outlet, it is the latter two actors that will be playing the role of the radicalized terrorists (Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev) who brought the city of Boston to a standstill in April of 2013. Beach, on the other hand – best known for his recurring role of Pike in The 100 – is on board to portray Deval Patrick, the “governor of Massachusetts when terrorists struck the annual event in 2013.”

Since Berg and his Lone Survivor cohort Mark Wahlberg hatched Patriots’ Day, there’s been a flurry of activity surrounding the project, which quickly found a home at CBS Films and Lionsgate.
