Kathryn Bigelow Tackles ’67 Riots in ‘Detroit’ Trailer

Director Kathryn Bigelow and her Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty writer Mark Boal are back on some politically-charged, sure-to-be fêted ground. This time it’s with Detroit, a film about the racially-charged 1967 riots that, across five days, left dozens dead and hundreds injured. The historical drama sees The Force Awakens‘ John Boyega once again playing the sole relatable enforcer amidst a bunch of nondescript jerks in white helmets. He leads a sprawling ensemble cast that includes the likes of Will Poulter, Algee Smith, Jacob Latimore, Jason Mitchell, Hannah Murray, Kaitlyn Dever, Jack Reynor, John Krasinski, and Anthony Mackie. Depressingly, Detroit will continue to be all too relevant when it hits theaters August 4.
