When I first saw the trailer for Detroit, I instantly got the, “This is going to be good sh*t” feeling. That feeling is hardly ever wrong, so I was confident this film would receive positive reviews from critics.
And it looks like my feeling was right once again. The early reviews for the movie are coming in, and they are overwhelmingly positive. 66 reviews have been counted and 63 of them are positive.
“What Bigelow does – incomparably – is put us in that room with those people at that moment. She induces a feeling of powerlessness that’s beyond our capacity to imagine on our own, and she keeps it going…”
Ann Hornaday from The Washington Post gave the film four stars and wrote this powerful paragraph:
“It’s at this point that ‘Detroit,’ which was written by Bigelow’s frequent collaborator Mark Boal, goes from being a bluntly effective you-are-there exercise to something far more daring, sophisticated and unforgettably disturbing. Rather than treat the Algiers as yet one more data point within a timeline that eventually included the arrival of the National Guard and, finally, the U.S. Army, Bigelow drills down into one of American history’s most egregious cases of abuse of police power, bringing it to life with visceral detail and slowed-down meticulousness.”
It looks like it’s going to be more of the same from Bigelow, and that is definitely not a bad thing. She knows how to keep things tense and even a bit uncomfortable at times. We saw it with both The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty. Her style of directing makes you feel like you’re there with the characters.
Detroit will hit theaters August 4, 2017. Make sure you check it out.
I was still on the fence about ‘Detroit‘ after watching the first trailer, but this second trailer has pushed me over the fence. I am now looking forward to watching this movie.
Mainly because it promises to be filled with intense moments, and that’s something you should expect from a movie created by critically-acclaimed director Kathryn Bigelow and Oscar-winning screenwriter Mark Boal. Their previous projects include The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty.
Detroit, which is set in 1967, is based on the Algiers Motel incident, in which three black men were killed during a race riot. The trailer you see at the bottom of this page will make you want to watch this movie. It’s the only trailer you need to see. And make sure you watch it all the way through. There is a surprise testimonial at the end.
Will Poulter, Anthony Mackie, Jacob Latimore, Jason Mitchell and the wonderful John Boyega star in this movie. It’s set to be released August 4, 2017.
Welcome back, Kathryn Bigelow…welcome back. It’s been five years since the Oscar-winning director released a feature-length movie, and that’s five years too long if you ask us.
Thankfully she is making a grand return with Detroit. A movie based on the 1967 Detroit riot, one of the deadliest and most costly examples of civil unrest in American history. The five-day riot killed over 40 people, injured more than 1,000 and featured more than $40 million in property damage.
The writer behind this film is the talented Mark Boal. He previously worked with Bigelow on Zero Dark Thirty and The Hurt Locker.
Detroit stars John Krasinski, John Boyega, Jason Mitchell, Anthony Mackie and Will Poulter. It’s scheduled to hit theaters August 4, 2017, and you should probably save that date in your phone now. You will not want to miss this one.
Instagram user amacro13 just became the most popular person on the internet. He posted several photos of what appears to be the new Batmobile being used in the upcoming Zack Snyder flick, Batman V Superman.
As most of you hardcore fans know, the movie is currently filming in Detroit, which is where the photos down below were taken. It’s important to remember that these are not official photos. The only official photo we have of the new Batmobile is the teaser Snyder released back in May.
Check out the official photo above and compare it to the photos snapped by amacro13. Obviously, it’s difficult to compare the two, considering the official photo only shows the very back of the car.
It looks like it needs a little bit of a wash, huh? What’s going on, Mr. Affleck? You don’t have a few quarters to spare?
UPDATE: In response to the leaked photos above, Zack Snyder delighted fans last night with a new, official photo of the Batmobile. He posted the stunning shot down below, tweeting, “Here’s a real picture of the #Batmobile.”
