Detroit is the name of the city in which this movie takes place, centered around a police raid in 1967, which results in one of the largest citizen uprisings in the United States’ history, and the film stars John Boyega (Star Wars Episode VIII: The Force Awakens).
Directed by Kathryn Bigelow, I loved her original Point Break in 1991, but was less impressed with the otherwise-critically-acclaimed The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty. However, this does look good from the trailer.
Detroit is released in the UK on August 25th, three weeks after the US date.
Screenplay: Mark Boal
Also stars: John Krasinski, Kaitlyn Dever, Will Poulter, Jack Reynor, Hannah Murray, Anthony Mackie
