New Patriots Day trailer showcases the endurance of the human spirit

The more stuff I see for PATRIOTS DAY my excitement meter begins to go up higher and higher. The magnitude of the story and the intensity of the trailer hint at a gripping and engaging film, if not just technically, but emotionally as well. The trailers have done a good job at relaying much of the movie’s style and tone, with this new preview being no different as it uses interviews from the cast and real-life figures to talk about the endurance of the human spirit through such a trying experience.

LONE SURVIVOR and DEEPWATER HORIZON proved director Peter Berg can craft atmospheric, jarring tension, and tell a good story as the characters go through such profound, unreal experiences. PATRIOTS DAY seems like perfect material for such a skill, and early word of mouth says it's his best work (read Chris Bumbray’s review here!). Though it has yet to show-out at any awards, it has earned a spot on the coveted National Board of Review's Top 10 list, and could prove a late force to be reckoned with come its wide release in January 13. Never underestimate the power of The Wahlberg!

PATRIOTS DAY with Mark Wahlberg, John Goodman, Kevin Bacon, J.K. Simmons and Michelle Monaghan goes into limited release this Wednesday, and check out our exclusive interviews here!
