The official synopsis is as follows:
Detroit tells the gripping story of one of the darkest moments during the civil unrest that rocked Detroit in the summer of ’67.
Detroit looks set to be a different film from what I was expecting it to be. I believed it was going to focus completely on the riots themselves, but here it shows multiple stories are set to be told, with the riots as the backdrop, from various points of view. Detroit’s ensemble includes John Boyega, Chris Chalk, Nathan Davis Jr., Kaitlyn Dever, Austin Hébert, Joseph David-Jones, Malcolm David Kelley, John Krasinski, Jacob Latimore, Anthony Mackie, Jason Mitchell, Hannah Murray, Ben O’Toole, Will Poulter, Jack Reynor, Algee Smith, Peyton Alex Smith, Jeremy Strong, Ephraim Sykes and Leon Thomas III.
Detroit is scheduled for cinematic release on the 4th August 2017.
