(Watch) Kathryn Bigelow’s Newest Film ‘Detroit’ Looks So Chilling That The Trailer Made Me Anxious

Kathryn Bigelow doesn’t need anymore praise than she’s already been given with the intro to the trailer and for her work doing all the talking. The woman can direct her ass off and she’s exceptional at presenting real world dramas that deal with topical issues such as war, crime, and the true story of the Detroit Race Riots in 1967.

Bigelow brings along her The Hurt Locker star Anthony Mackie back for a supporting role as well as strong young names like John Boyega, Will Poulter, Jack Reynor, Ben O’Toole, Hannah Murray, Jacob Latimore, Kaitlyn Dever, Jason Mitchell, Algee Smith, Joseph David-Jones, and John Krasinski.

If this doesn’t look like a startling shot of reality then I don’t know what to tell you. This stuff happened and is still happening. Not only does the topical subject matter strengthen my intrigue, but there’s something about Bigelow’s documentary style way of shooting movies that suck you in immediately. The handheld style she has brings you into the character’s worlds so vividly, to a point that you feel yourself sweating alongside them. This was kept under wraps for a long time, but was rumored to have snagged Boyega in the starring role as well as the subject matter being accurate to early reports.
