Detroit hits cinemas in the UK 25th August and today we’ve been lucky enough to attend the press conference in London Town for the movie which has to be seen to be believed.
Actors John Boyega (Star Wars), Will Poulter (The Maze Runner), Hannah Murray (Game of Thrones) & Jack Reynor (Free Fire) were all in attendance alongside their Academy Award winning director Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty).
There was a lovely moment in the press conference where John Boyega recounted the first time he met Will Poulter…..
Detroit tells the story of the Detroit Rebellion of 1967 which saw the Michigan National Guard join both the State and local police to attempt to quash the uprising. The second act of the movie focuses on the events at the Algiers Motel which ultimately saw three young African Americans murdered.
Bigelow tells the harrowing story of how the events unfolded with accounts from eye witnesses (who were on set during filming) to bring the story back into the spotlight.
