From the award-winning filmmakers behind "The Hurt Locker" and "Zero Dark Thirty" comes a new historical thriller that's set against the backdrop of the 1967 Detroit riots, which is regarded as one of the deadliest and costliest riots in American history.
Boasting a strong ensemble cast that includes the likes of John Boyega, Jason Mitchell, Will Poulter, Anthony Mackie, John Krasinski, Kaitlyn Dever, Hannah Murray, and Jack Reynor, "Detroit" hails from Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow, Oscar-winning screenwriter Mark Boal, and three-time Oscar-nominated producer Megan Ellison.
Check out the debut trailer for the upcoming film, which is scheduled to arrive in theaters on August 4th -- just about a week after the 50th anniversary of the terrifying events (which began on July 23, 1967 and ended on July 27, 1967).
From the Academy Award winning director of THE HURT LOCKER and ZERO DARK THIRTY, DETROIT tells the gripping story of one of the darkest moments during the civil unrest that rocked Detroit in the summer of '67.
