Stronger Trailer

"You showed the world that they can't break us no matter what the hell they do." Lionsgate has unveiled the first trailer for David Gordon Green's Stronger, about a survivor of the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013 who helped the police track down the killers. This is the second Boston Marathon bombing movie, the fist one Patriots Day opened last winter, while Lionsgate is waiting until this fall to release this one. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Jeff Bauman, who lost both legs in the bombing. The cast includes Tatiana Maslany as his wife Erin Hurley, plus Clancy Brown, Miranda Richardson, and Frankie Shaw. This actually looks a bit better than Patriots Day, mostly because it's more personal and emotional, and I trust in DGG.

Here's the first official trailer for David Gordon Green's Stronger, direct from Lionsgate's YouTube:

Stronger Movie

    Looks good. Gyllenhaal can pull this off. Whole cast feels and looks promising. But what the hell happened to Miranda Richardson? Oh wait. Life I guess...honestly, her look shocked me a bit. But I guess nobody gets younger huh?!

    In Gyllenhaal we trust.

    Two fantastic actors. After Orphan Black, Ill watch anything with Tatiana Maslany in it.
    While the acting will be supreme, I will pass on yet another film capitalizing on the Boston Bombing.
    • If there were super hero's flying around the Boston Marathon finish line saving people and suddenly Indiana Jones appeared and he fought Popeye for gold, I'd say it would be capitalizing. I'm not getting "capitalizing" from that trailer. It definitely has moments to inspire, but the sadness and bleakness isn't reading studio capital project to me.

      "yet another film capitalizing on the Boston Bombing". Really? There was Patriot's Day and...can't think of another one. Please list all the Boston Marathon bombing movies for us.

    This is worth because of the cast. But who knows, maybe there will be interesting study of a character, Gyllenhaal is good ...
  • Looks inspiring for those who are interested in films like this. Myself...not so much. Solid cast though.

      We can agree on the interest in these kind of inspirational, maudlin and ultimately vapid movies filled with pretense as being 'not so much', that's for sure. Let me add, and I'm sure no surprise to you, Raw, I can't agree with you regarding the 'solid cast' part. I don't care for Gyllenhaal. Never have. I just don't believe him and really don't like looking at him doing anything, especially over a two hour period of time. I tried to watch the actress on her TV show and thought it was mediocre, gimmick ridden nonsense and didn't buy her work as one character, let alone multiple ones. Sorry,
      • I felt the same about Gyllenhaal until I saw Nightcrawler. Fantastic character study.
        • Bo
          Hmmmmm...interesting, Raw, because I never saw the thing. Read about it, what it was about, saw clips, him... took a pass. If it came around cable I'd take a look with hopefully an open mind, but I can't say I've liked him or anything he's been in...sooo.....

        Donnie Darko?
        • Bo
          You know, back when that film came out I actually kind of liked it. It wasn't because of Gyllenhaal though. Not sure how I'd feel about it today, but have no interest in viewing it again. Cheers and thanks for the reminder of Donnie Darko.

    This looks good. Gyllenhaal is always solid these days, and while I haven't really seen Maslany in anything, she seems to be delivering a great performance too. On a side note, Patriot's Day was good as well.
