The state issued nearly $90 million in film tax subsidies in 2016, a new high-water mark that includes tens of millions in previously unreported incentives paid out to movies inspired by the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings.

Patriots Day,’’ the 2016 Mark Wahlberg-led film about the terrorist attack at the finish line that killed three people and injured hundreds more, collected $15.7 million worth of credits — the fifth most for any project to date, according to newly revised state data.

Another movie about the tragedy, “Stronger,’’ the 2017 film starring Jake Gyllenhaal as bombing survivor Jeff Bauman, received $4.8 million.
