New International Trailer for 'Patriots Day' Starring Mark Wahlberg
"We've got to decide who's running this, and we've got to decide quickly." eOne Films has unveiled another new international trailer for Peter Berg's Patriots Day, the emotional action thriller about the true story of the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013. Mark Wahlberg stars as Sgt. Tommy Saunders, with the full cast featuring Michelle Monaghan, Kevin Bacon, J.K. Simmons, John Goodman, Michael Beach, Alex Wolff, Melissa Benoist and Rachel Brosnahan. This international trailer differs slightly from the other two US trailers, including actual audio during the explosions and a much more intense tone - more suspenseful than the other trailers. The focus in this seems to be the manhunt, with lots of action at the end.
