Detroit — Final Trailer


added: Thu, Jul 27th '17

This week marks the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Detroit Riots. And Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow has recreated the painful and chaotic event for her latest film "Detroit."

Check out the newly released final trailer for Bigelow's upcoming historical drama, which features "Force Awakens" star John Boyega as Melvin Dismukes, an African-American security guard who was interrogated and then unjustly blamed for the "Algiers Motel" murders, the now almost-forgotten, real-life incident that occurred during the racially-charged riots in which three African-American civilians were killed by Detroit police officers.

Written by Oscar-winner Mark Boal, who also provided the screenplays for Bigelow's "The Hurt Locker" and "Zero Dark Thirty," the film boasts an impressive cast that also 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" will open in select theaters this Friday, July 28, before expanding nationwide on August 4th.

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.
