The Boston Marathon bombing is getting dramatized for the big screen. Again.
Just six months after Mark Wahlberg’s Patriots Day comes the first trailer for Stronger, starring Jake Gyllenhaal as a bystander injured in the 2013 tragedy.
If you didn’t already know they were based on the same event, though, you wouldn’t necessarily figure it out right away.
Whereas Patriots Day centered on the explosion and the subsequent manhunt, Stronger tells a much more intimate tale about the ordinary civilians trying to recover in the aftermath.
Stronger is in theaters September 22. Orphan Black‘s Tatiana Maslany also stars as Gyllenhaal’s girlfriend, one of the runners.
