Loss changes everything in the powerful new trailer for Stronger

On April 15, 2013, two homemade bombs detonated 12 seconds and 210 yards (190 m) apart at 2:49 p.m., near the finish line of the annual Boston Marathon, killing three people and injuring several hundred others, including 16 who lost limbs. The attack was a tragedy to be sure, and one that shook the very foundation of Boston and its community to its core. In the years following the incident, security for public events such as marathons (as well as other sporting events) has increased exponentially, as those who participate in the activity soldier on, but are never truly rid of the fear that something terrible might occur.

You can watch the powerful new trailer for the film below:

STRONGER is the inspiring true story of Jeff Bauman, an ordinary man who captured the hearts of his city and the world to become the symbol of hope following the infamous 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Jeff, a 27-year-old, working-class Boston man who was at the marathon to try and win back his ex-girlfriend Erin (Tatiana Maslany). Waiting for her at the finish line when the blast occurs, he loses both his legs in the attack.

After regaining consciousness in the hospital, Jeff is able to help law enforcement identify one of the bombers, but his own battle has just begun. He tackles months of physical and emotional rehabilitation with the unwavering support of Erin and his family. It is Jeff’s deeply personal account of the heroic journey that tests a family’s bond, defines a community’s pride and inspires his inner courage to overcome devastating adversity. Filled with raw emotion, humanity and humor, STRONGER is the inspirational real-life story of the man who became the living embodiment of “Boston Strong.” The film also stars Academy Award nominee Miranda Richardson and is directed by David Gordon Green.

STRONGER is based on the book of the same name by Jeff Bauman and Bret Witter. The film stars Miranda Richardson and Clancy Brown in addition to Jake Gyllenhaal and ORPHAN BLACK's Tatiana Maslany. The film is expected to arrive in theaters on September 22, 2017.

Extra Tidbit: During questioning, one of the bombers who orchestrated the attack, Dzhokhar, alleged that he and his brother were motivated by extremist Islamist beliefs and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, that they were self-radicalized and unconnected to any outside terrorist groups, and that he was following his brother's lead.
