patriots-day-pugliese

When a city was torn apart, the nation came together and in early 2017  we will witness the movie based on the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, Patriots Day. Whilst we wait for the release of the UK Trailer, Lionsgate has sent us a brand new featurette called ‘Pugliese ‘ which focuses on J.K Simmon‘s character Sergeant Jeffrey Pugliese

As well as been based around the bombings the movie hopes to showcase the ‘everyday heroes’ who live among us and on that fateful day the extraordinary dedication by them. J.K Simmons was maybe known as the wicked music teacher in whiplash and a Jazz hating club owner in the upcoming La La Land, in this one he’s a hero cop.

In the aftermath of an unspeakable act of terror, Police Sergeant Tommy Saunders (Mark Wahlberg) joins courageous survivors, first responders and investigators in a race against the clock to hunt down the bombers before they strike again.Weaving together the stories of Special Agent Richard Deslauriers (Kevin Bacon), Police Commissioner Ed Davis (John Goodman), Sergeant Jeffrey Pugliese(J.K. Simmons) and nurse Carol Saunders (Michelle Monaghan) this visceral and unflinching chronicle captures the suspense of the most sophisticated manhunt in law enforcement history and the strength of the people of Boston.

After the success critically of Deepwater Horizon and the early reviews of this Patriots Day looks like it will continue the momentum. After several duds (Battleship been the most notable) this looks a celebration of all great things humanity and of course togetherness in needy times.

Patriots Day now looks set to be released in UK&Ireland 24th February 2017.
