Patriots Day, Peter Berg's dramatization of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, arrives on Digital HD on March 14, with a home video release on March 28. The latter includes 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD options.
The film was Berg's latest collaboration with Mark Wahlberg, all of which explore recent events and extraordinary acts of heroism. While Lone Survivor (2013) was a major hit and Deepwater Horizon (2016) did middling business, they both received multiple Oscar nominations. But Patriots Day got lost in the late-December shuffle. Still, it received solid reviews.
The UHD and Blu-rays will include a bevy of special features, including several documentaries on the local law enforcement and FBI investigators who caught the perpetrators. One feature of note is "Actors Meet Real-Life Counterparts," which shows John Goodman meeting Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis and Jimmy O. Yang meeting Dun Meng, who survived a carjacking by the brothers.
The film's cast also includes Kevin Bacon, J.K. Simmons and Melissa Benoist.
