Kathryn Bigelow's Detroit Trailer

"What is going on here?!" "It's not that simple…" Annapurna Pictures has revealed one more hard-hitting trailer for Kathryn Bigelow's Detroit, about the Detroit Riots in 1967, which hits theaters starting this week. 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. The film has been getting great reviews, and it's apparently an intense experience that starts strong and never lets up.

Here's the third & final trailer (+ poster) for Kathryn Bigelow's Detroit, direct from Annapurna's YouTube:

And there will be more to come. Unfortunately, there's no shortage of leftist bottom feeders, ready to crawl out from under their rock and poke at the scab that is racism, whether it exists or not. Just add the douchey man-bun and pompous British accent for maximum effect. It's just their way of saying "Hey, I'm better than you".

Well at least you know they are better than you. The one you thing you said that made any sense.

Charles Knowlton on Jul 28, 2017


Are you kidding me? Did you really just question whether racism really exists? You don't have to agree with the viewpoint of the filmmaker and that's fine. But to question whether people of color have been oppressed in our country is downright ignorant and offensive to those who have had to live through it. Please apologize or erase your comment.

Here ya go.... a trailer for a civil rights movie featuring non evil white men.

I'm all for these types of movies but I can already see the backlash from both sides...which will probably over shadow this movie. I'll see it for the cast.

Intense. Yeah, I like American films about bad white people. Always did...

Looks almost like an Dadvid Ayer movie from a few years ago.

I know you can't tell judge a movie solely based upon it's trailer, but read up on the Detroit riots and tell me if you think this movie is really going to represent what occurred or just embellish the truth.

My best friend's dad {white} was shot at a red light coming home from work in Detroit during the riots. We were 6 year olds in the front yard playing and my friend was called into the house. A black man was pissed so my friend's dad "wrong" stop light "wrong" time to be there ended up paying with his life. I remember the national guard rolling down the street. Today's youth would say WTF . Me, an "evil white man" married to half Indian half Jewish wife would say it's a sin problem not a skin problem. We have many friends of many colors. At last check we were all human. My friend died a few years ago a broken man.

I wonder if this will just encourage more riots after a nice dose of glamourisation. Riots aren't noble acts of civil frustration crying out for an honest answer. They're just an excuse to cut loose, go on the rampage and hopefully steal a new pair of Nikes.

You haven't the first clue about Detroit sonny.
