Peter Berg is about to complete his mission.
Following the Afghanistan War movie Lone Survivor and this fall’s Deepwater Horizon, filmmaker Peter Berg concludes his “American Heroes” trilogy with Patriots Day. Each of these films has also starred Mark Wahlberg. Here, the director and actor dramatize the events of the Boston bombing, an act of terrorism that occurred on April 15, 2013.
Co-starring Kevin Bacon, J.K. Simmons, John Goodman, and Michelle Monaghan, Patriots Day gets a limited release on December 21, 2016 in Boston, New York, and Los Angeles before opening nationwide on January 13, 2017.
