From the Director of The Hurt Locker and ZERO DARK THIRTY comes the story of the Detroit Riots in 1967. Considering that this hits close to home for Detroiters, and the fact that the city is FINALLY starting to bounce back from this era, this will be intensely scrutinized on detail by the locals.
According to the trailer, the movie is attempting to stay factual with the "based on a true story" type disclaimer. Star Wars John Boyega plays one of the lead characters as well.
Let's hope they get it right, we're watching.
The film is set to release August 4.
