The first trailer and poster for the much-anticipated new film from Academy Award winner Kathryn Bigelow, DETROIT, has arrived.
In the summer of 1967, what began as a police raid of an after-hours bar in Detroit ended up being one of the deadliest and destructive riots in American history, lasting five days and resulting in 43 dead, 1,189 injured, over 7,200 arrests and more than 2,000 buildings destroyed.
Bigelow, still the first and only woman to win the Best Director Oscar (for 2009’s The Hurt Locker), directs from a screenplay by Oscar winner Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker) and the film stars John Boyega, Will Poulter, Jason Mitchell, Kaitlyn Dever, Jack Reynor, Jacob Latimore, Laz Alonso, Ben O’Toole, John Krasinski and Anthony Mackie.
DETROIT is in the #1 position for Best Picture and Best Director from the Gold Rush Gang and has been since 2018 Oscar predictions began. Will this first trailer keep it there?
Here is the first look at DETROIT:
DETROIT will be released by Annapurna Pictures on August 4th. Here is the poster:
