HBO Releases First Trailer for Boston Marathon Bombing Documentary
A new documentary about the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings is set to premiere on HBO this fall.
The network released the first trailer for Marathon: The Patriots Day Bombing on Friday, offering viewers a look at the upcoming film, directed by Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg and produced in association with the Boston Globe.
According to a press release, the movie will retell the tragedy and its aftermath—including the sentencing of bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev—using surveillance footage, clips from news organizations, and home movies. Marathon will also feature exclusive interviews with survivors, first responders, investigators, as well as reporters who contributed to the Globe’s Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage of the attack.
The documentary will focus on a few particular victims who were injured by the bombings, including a newlywed couple, a mother and her daughter, and a pair of brothers. The film will showcase how they’ve dealt with their physical and emotional challenges in the three years since the blast and explore how the marathon attack has affected their communities.
