Detroit — New Trailer


added: Thu, Jun 15th '17

"What happened at the motel?"

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" star John Boyega is being subjected to an increasingly tense interrogation in the new trailer for "Detroit," a historical drama chronicling the racially charged murders of three African-American civilians (known as the "Algiers Motel incident") that occurred during the 1967 Detroit Riots.

Boyega is backed up by an impressive ensemble cast that includes Will Poulter (The Maze Runner), Anthony Mackie (Captain America: Civil War), Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton), Kaitlyn Dever (Laggies), Hannah Murray (Game of Thrones), Chris Coy (The Walking Dead), Samira Wiley (The Handmaid's Tale), Jack Reynor (Sing Street), Jacob Latimore (Sleight), Laz Alonso (Fast & Furious), Tyler James Williams (Everybody Hates Chris), Joseph David-Jones (Nashville), Ben O'Toole (Hacksaw Ridge), and John Krasinski (13 Hours).

"Detroit" is the latest collaboration from Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow, Oscar-winning screenwriter Mark Boal, and Oscar-nominated producer Megan Ellison, who are the filmmaking team behind "The Hurt Locker" and "Zero Dark Thirty."

Ellison's production company Annapurna Pictures will take on the role, for the first time ever, as the film's own distributor. They're planning to release "Detroit" in theaters on August 4th -- about a week after the 50th anniversary of the "12th Street" riots, which took place on July 23, 1967 through 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.
