The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty director Kathryn Bigelow is back this summer, once again re-teaming with Mark Boal. Detroit is set during the 5-day riots that took place there in 1967, and will explore the systemic racism of the city.

Set for a debut during the event’s 50th anniversary, this new trailer goes deeper into breaking down the timeline of events and introducing more of the massive ensemble. Starring John Boyega, Jack Reynor, Will Poulter, Ben O’Toole, Hannah Murray, Anthony Mackie, Jacob Latimore, Kaitlyn Dever, Jason Mitchell, Algee Smith, Joseph David-Jones, and John Krasinski, check out the trailer and poster below.
From the Academy Award winning director of THE HURT LOCKER and ZERO DARK THIRTY, DETROIT tells the gripping story of one of the darkest moments during the civil unrest that rocked Detroit in the summer of ‘67.
