Looks better than what I was expecting. Marky Mark looks like he is just doing his old, scruffy character again. I know two people that lost their legs in this attack.

Ugh....sad face...

Man, Hollywood doesn't waste much time in capitalizing off other people's tragedies.

There's really no need to mention that Kevin Bacon is in this movie....that goes without saying...

Cause...six degrees of Kevin Bacon?...or what?

Exactly. There is Bacon everywhere...

Does Mark Wahlburg have a special contract to appear in all of Peter Berg's films of late?! I'm on the fence about this. I never saw the 9/11 movie either....just feels...wrong to watch a Hollywood adaptation of a terrorist attack....

That's a trailer done right. Being a life-long Boston area resident, I'm half-torn with Hollywood bringing this subject matter to the big screen but it looks like they may have done it with the right amount of respect.

I despise patriotism, always and everywhere. But killing civilians will never resolve any political question and problem... Anyway, I'm not interested in this since I do agree with one comment beneath regarding Hollywood using and capitalizing this tragedy ...

people who kill innocent civilians (should we use the term "innocent"? I can't see how they could be guilty of anything) are but dehumanized cowards. And this include individual and State terrorism. Maybe State terrorism is more to blame, as people tend to be indulgent on its crimes.

Politics of killing people for a cause is cowardice, whether sponsored by state or done by some lunatic. I don't respect any cause worth of that name when is used like this. Of course, I understand when someone is really unhappy about something, but hurting someone on street? As for the state, it's a shadow where many low lives are hidden and are using that shadow to hurt people. Very sad people and very sad perspective ...

Reznor scoring this is the only thing im interested in.

I stopped reading at mark Wahlberg. I don't care how great the rest of the cast is, it ain't worth sitting through 2 hours of watching that jackass try to act.

Even Ted acts better than him.

Profiting propaganda. Nice!
