Lionsgate have released a new batch of images for their movie Patriots Day which is a retelling of the Boston Marathon bombing that happened back in 2013 tragically taking 3 lives and injuring a further 264 people.
The two pressure cooker bombs were set off 190 metres apart close to the finish line with the pictures being beamed across the globe shocking all who saw.

Peter Berg reunites with Deepwater Horizon and Lone Survivor star Mark Wahlberg (who is a proud Bostonian himself) alongside Michelle
