In the New Excruciatingly Intense Trailer for ‘Detroit,’ John Boyega Just Wants to Go Home

BY RELEVANT CULTURE June 15, 2017

Kathryn Bigelow is on a rarified hot streak these days, with both Zero Dark Thirty and The Hurt Locker solidifying her as one of the modern era’s great action directors.

Her next movie, Detroit, is about the 1967 riots that brought Motor City to a halt and stars John Boyega (The Force Awakens), John Krasinski (The Office), Anthony Mackie (Falcon in the Avengers movies) and Will Poulter (The Revenant).

The new trailer is excruciatingly tense, as is Bigelow’s trademark, and if legacy is anything to go by, will be getting a lot of chatter come award season.
