U.S. Olympic medalist Shalane Flanagan stars in a minute-long trailer promoting the 2017 feature-length documentary “Boston” about the Boston Marathon.
The video published Tuesday marked the second trailer for the film, following a longer one published in February 2015 (video below).
The film directed by Jon Dunham will go beyond the 2013 twin bombings that rocked the 26.2-mile race.
The film will be a sort of highlights reel from the 120-year-old marathon, the nation’s oldest. The Boston Athletic Association, which organizes the race, gave Dunham exclusive rights to its archive of photos, video and marathon memorabilia.
“Boston” will tell the stories of some of the greatest marathoners ever to conquer the hilly 26.2-mile course stretching from Hopkinton, Massachusetts, to Boston. They include four-time winner Bill Rodgers; Johnny Kelley, who ran 61 Bostons and won two; and Kathrine Switzer, who in 1967 became the first woman to run with an official bib number.
The movie tentatively is set to premiere in April 2017 in conjunction with the 121st edition of the race.
