First teaser poster for Mark Wahlberg's Patriots Day
Director Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg are steadily building a reputation for working together: they have Deepwater Horizon due this September and are sticking with real-world stories for Boston bombing drama Patriots Day. The first poster for the new film is online and you can take a look below.
The film blends reality and cinematic invention to chronicle the events surrounding the bombing that happened at the finish line of the Boston race on April 15, 2013. Investigators eventually narrowed down suspects Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, and a huge manhunt followed, with Tamerlan killed in a firefight with officers and Dzhokhar found guilty of all his charges and sentenced to death.
Wahlberg is playing Sergeant Tommy Saunders, a composite of various Boston Police Department officers who were central to the case, with J.K. Simmons, John Goodman, Melissa Benoist, Michelle Monaghan and Kevin Bacon also in the cast.
Bridge Of Spies' Matt Charman wrote the script for the film, which will arrive in UK cinemas in January.
