It was just this past weekend that Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg‘s latest film, Deepwater Horizon, made its way into theaters.
That based-on-real-events film actually impressed me a great deal and now has me confidently willing to check out their newest collaboration, Patriots Day.
The film centers around the Boston Marathon bombings that took place just a few years ago.
Honestly, the trailer almost feels like a beat-for-beat copy of Deepwater Horizon, with the story simply changed out, yet Wahlberg remaining the same.
I’ll see it and I’ll see it with moderate expectations, because Deepwater Horizon was actually a great film and Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are scoring the film, so at the very least it’ll sound great.
The film opens in January.
