The first official trailer for the film Patriots Day has been released and it looks to be very dramatic and emotional, but that matches the subject matter. The story of the Boston Marathon bombings was a tragedy and this film is based on that event. It’s stars Mark Wahlberg and Kevin Bacon, but the rest of the cast is pretty impressive too. J.K. Simmons, John Goodman, Michelle Monaghan and Melissa Benoist.
Benoist’s role is Katherine Russell, the 28-year-old widow of bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev, is a big shift in character from what we’ve normally seen from the actress and could increase her stock quite a bit.
Patriots Day opens January 13th, 2017.
