John Boyega and Will Poulter represent UK talent in this new thriller film by the winning director of ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ and ‘The Hurt Locker’, Kathryn Bigelow.
They’re joined by other actors of greatness, which include Captain America’s Anthony Mackie, Sleight’s star Jacob Latimore, Tyler James Williams (‘Everybody Hates Chris’, ‘Dear White People’, ‘The Walking Dead’), Straight Outta Compton’s Jason Mitchell, Laz Alonso (‘Avatar’, ‘Battle of The Year’) and Games of Thrones’ Hannah Murray. Anthony Mackie was in the previous film ‘The Hurt Locker’, which is surprising to know. Plus, there’s other familiar faces starring in ‘Detroit’ such as former child star Leon Thomas III (from ‘Victorious’), Ben O’ Toole (‘Hacksaw Ridge’) as well as Peyton ‘Alex’ Smith from television series ‘The Quad’.

‘Detroit’ follows on the historic civil unrest of summer 1967 that rocked the city. Once again, America has to look back at its long history of violence from government forces and the resistance from the civilians. Relive the history when it hits theatres in the US on August 4th.
