Kathryn Bigelow’s Detroit flew a little under the radar this year, as it released against some strong competition in the box office. Despite that, however, it’s still a poignant film worth checking out. If you missed out, you’ll get your chance to bring it home on blu-ray on December 12th (November 28th if you want to snag it digitally):
From Kathryn Bigelow, the award-winning director of The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty, comes the gripping story of one of the most terrifying secrets in American history. John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) plays a Detroit security guard caught in the crossfire after a late-night police raid sparks a wave of violence that spirals out of control. Featuring masterful supporting performances by Will Poulter (The Revenant), Algee Smith (Earth to Echo), Jacob Latimore (The Maze Runner), John Krasinski (“The Office”) and Anthony Mackie (Captain America: Civil War), DETROIT is a “visceral thriller” (Rafer Guzman, Newsday) that “demands to be seen” (Matt Goldberg, Collider).
The Blu-ray and DVD are loaded with special features on this history surrounding the events portrayed in the film, including five behind-the-scenes featurettes and a music video featuring Algee Smith and the real Larry Reed from The Dramatics.
