Trailer for Jake Gyllehaal Boston marathon bombing film 'Stronger' lands”

The inspirational story of Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman is heading to the big screen this fall courtesy of Jake Gyllenhaal. But unlike that movie, which focused on the bombing overall, this movie tells the story of Jeff Bauman, who lost his legs in the bombing, and the aftereffects of what he endured.

In addition to Gyllenhaal, "Stronger" also features a performance by Golden Globe-nominated actress Tatiana Maslany.

An AP photo of a badly injured Bauman being rushed away in a wheelchair by three rescuers became one of the most memorable images of the April 15, bombings, which killed three people.

It is Jeff's deeply personal account of the heroic journey that tests a family's bond, defines a community's pride and inspires his inner courage to overcome devastating adversity. The film also stars Academy Award® nominee Miranda Richardson and is directed by David Gordon Green. Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions will release "Stronger" in theaters on September 22, 2017, but it will open to a limited number of theaters, so check your local listings. This film has been completed for quite a while, but it looks like it was a smart move to hold it and give it some space from Patriot's Day.

As seen in the trailer, the film has recreated Bauman's iconic first pitch at Fenway Park in 2013, as well as his emotional appearance at a Bruins game that year.
