The moments after something bad happens can be terrifying for someone.
For John Boyega‘s time after the events of the 1967 Detroit riot in his film, ‘Detroit’ could mean jail time for something he didn’t do.
Dismukes (Boyega) was working as a security guard when he heard gunfire at the nearby Algiers hotel. He went to investigate, saw police, and more shooting happened. Of course, it can be assumed that the police killed them, but when being interrogated by the police they changed the narrative, trying to get their guys cleared of crimes while possibly getting an innocent person in jail.
The first trailer already looked intense, when you add this horror to it, it gets downright terrifying.
‘Detroit’ is out August 4, 2017.
