Detroit Trailer

"I need you to survive the night." Annapurna has unveiled the first official trailer for the newest film from Kathryn Bigelow, titled simply Detroit, profiling the story of the infamous Detroit riot of 1967. The film features an ensemble cast of characters to tell the story of why so many citizens decided to rise up, and how the riot expanded so quickly to become so massive that the President had to send in federal troops to get things under control. The huge cast includes John Boyega, Jack Reynor, Will Poulter, Ben O'Toole, Hannah Murray, Anthony Mackie, Jacob Latimore, Algee Smith, Joseph David-Jones, Kaitlyn Dever, Jason Mitchell, John Krasinski, Jeremy Strong, and Laz Alonso. This looks like an intense, riveting, honest portrayal of what happened back then and I'm certainly looking forward to watching this.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Kathryn Bigelow's Detroit, direct from YouTube:
