Every year, on the third Monday of April, thousands of runners along with hundreds of thousands of spectators congregate in Boston, Massachusetts for the annual running of the Boston Marathon. The event started way back in 1897 and has grown in notoriety and popularity over the years. In 2013, the event changed forever when, at approximately 2:49 ET two separate explosions occurred about 200 yards apart. The explosions killed three spectators and injured 264 more. These tragic events would go on to inspire the film Patriot’s Day- this week’s headline new release. It is a jam packed week that also sees the release of the latest J.K.
