From the Academy Award-winning director of The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty comes a new story that puts you smack dab in the middle of one of the most terrifying moments of civil unrest, one that rocked Detroit in the summer of 1967.

Detroit brings to the big screen the horrible reality of racism, police framing and controlling the narrative of one of the United States’ blackest regions, and it’s hard to watch, but necessary. The film stars John Boyega, Anthony Mackie, Laz Alonso, Jacob Latimore and many more of our faves.

Check out the gut-wrenching trailer above. Detroit hits theaters Aug. 4. Will you be there?
