This morning, the trailer for Kathryn Bigelow’s Detroit dropped online.
Detroit is a drama taking place during the summer of 1967 the true-life backdrop is a police raid that led to a five-day uprising in the city of Detroit.
Detroit boasts an ensemble cast including: John Boyega, John Krasinski, Jason Mitchell, Anthony Mackie, Will Poulter, Ben O’Toole, Jack Reynor, Jacob Latimore, Joseph David-Jones, Algee Smith, Kaitlyn Dever and Hannah Murray.
In a climate when it seems fragility is the call of the day and re-writing this country’s uncomfortable past a top priority on the federal agenda, creatives step forward with art meant to put the spotlight squarely on the struggle.
I’m pretty sure the streets gon’ be talking about this one. I, for one, wanna know what Detroit’s got to say about it…
Take a look at the first trailer:
This crime drama’s based on an original screenplay by Mark Boal and is set to release in theaters, August 4.
