The new Patriots Day movie trailer with Mark Wahlberg

CBS Films has debuted the new Patriots Day movie trailer, which you can view below. The film will close the 2016 AFI Fest on Thursday, November 17, and the film’s charity campaign kicks off on November 21.

An account of the Boston Marathon bombing, Patriots Day is the powerful story of a community’s courage in the face of adversity.

In the aftermath of an unspeakable act of terror, Police Sergeant Tommy Saunders (Mark Wahlberg) 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 (Kevin Bacon), Police Commissioner Ed Davis (John Goodman), Sergeant Jeffrey Pugliese (J.K. Simmons) and nurse Carol Saunders (Michelle Monaghan) 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.

The film co-stars Melissa Benoist, Michael Beach, Jimmy O. Yang, Vincent Curatola, Alex Wolff, James Colby, Themo Melikidze, Rachel Brosnahan and Christopher O’Shea.

Directed by Peter Berg (Lone SurvivorDeepwater Horizon), Patriots Day was written by Berg and Matt Cook (Triple 9), Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson (The Fighter). Scott Stuber, Wahlberg, Hutch Parker, Dylan Clark, Stephen Levinson, Dorothy Aufiero and Michael Radutzky are producing.

Patriots Day was co-financed by CBS Films and Lionsgate, with the former handling production and marketing and the latter handling distribution.

Patriots Day will open in New York, Los Angeles and Boston on December 21, 2016 and will then expand nationwide on January 13, 2017.
