'Patriots Day' Teaser Trailer: Mark Wahlberg Stars in Boston Marathon Bombing Drama

Mark Wahlberg finds himself in the middle of frightening chaos in Patriots Day, the upcoming movie based on the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. The teaser trailer, which was released today, finds the actor playing police officer Tommy Saunders.

The two-minute clip opens up with Saunders smiling as he preps for the marathon. As soon as the initial explosions occur, it then shows the Boston police and the community coming together to heal while "America the Beautiful" plays in the background.

Patriots Day also stars Kevin Bacon, John Goodman, J.K. Simmons and Michelle Monaghan. The movie marks the third time director Peter Berg and Wahlberg have worked together, following 2013's Lone Survivor and last month's Deepwater Horizon. Look out for it in theaters on Jan. 13.
