The Trailer for Jake Gyllenhaal’s New Movie About the Boston Marathon Bombing Is Gut-Wrenching
The trailer for Jake Gyllenhaal's newest film, Stronger, just dropped and it totally made us tear up.
Stronger follows the true story of Jeff Bauman, a regular Boston man whose life was forever changed when he lost both of his legs in the 2013 Boston Marathon terrorist bombing. The trailer shows Bauman waiting at the finish line of the marathon for his girlfriend, Erin, right before the explosion goes off. He wakes up in a hospital and receives the devastating news that both of his legs are gone. In other words...yes, it's going to be emotionally intense.
The film, which is due out September 22, 2017, also stars Tatiana Maslany as Bauman's girlfriend and Miranda Richardson as his mother, Patty Bauman.
So mark your calendar. (And stock up on tissues.)
