Ok, we weren’t totally sure how to feel about the trailer for “Patriot’s Day”, film directed by Peter Berg and starring Mark Wahlberg about the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013. This one was made in tandem with the Boston Globe and is called “Marathon: The Patriots Day Bombing” and it got us a bit choked up.

Premiering on HBO on November 21st, it revisits that fateful and tragic day for our city and uses never before seen footage of that day. More importantly than that though, it tracks the recovery and journey of some of the survivors as they go through the challenges of physical therapy and coping with post traumatic stress disorder from dealing with the event.

We’ll definitely be watching! How about you?
