Here’s a couple of new UK posters for Lionsgate’s theatrical retelling of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings in their movie Patriots Day which tragically saw 3 people lose their lives with a further 264 people injured.

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. What followed was an FBI man-hunt for the two suspects, brothers Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tsarnaev. The movie takes us through exactly what happened on the day of the event and its ultimate conclusion which saw those who tried to stop the pair sadly killed and ultimately the two terrorists also being shot and killed.

Much like Director Peter Director Berg’s previous film Deepwater Horizon, the movie focuses on the real life everyday heroes who inspired the world in the hours that followed the tragic event.

Peter Berg reunites once again with his Deepwater Horizon and Lone Survivor star Mark Wahlberg (who is also a proud Bostonian himself) alongside Michelle Monaghan, John Goodman, Kevin Bacon, J.K. Simmons and Alex Wolff.
