Wahlberg plays Boston Police Sgt. Tommy Saunders, a composite character based on several people involved in the response to the bombings.

Also starring in the film and featured in the trailer are Michelle Monaghan as nurse Carol Saunders, John Goodman as Police Commissioner Ed Davis, Kevin Bacon as FBI Special Agent Richard DesLauriers, and J.K. Simmons as Watertown Police Sgt. Jeffrey Pugliese.

The trailer also includes a scene featuring “Supergirl” star Melissa Benoist as marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s wife, Katherine Russell.

Filmmakers shot scenes for the film in and around Boston for months this year, filming scenes at the 2016 Boston Marathon, building a mock-up of the marathon finish line and Boylston Street at a Weymouth air base, and even re-creating Red Sox slugger David Ortiz’s famous “This is our f—ing city” speech for use in the film.

Crews were not allowed to film in several places; Watertown officials declined the producers’ proposal to film in town, as did the administration at UMass-Dartmouth.
