The Power and Timeliness of Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal’s ‘Detroit’

The following content has been sponsored by Annapurna Pictures. “Detroit,” the latest triumph from the award-winning team of director Kathryn Bigelow and writer Mark Boal, is a story about both 1967 and 2017. Aided by a skilled ensemble cast, the film dramatizes with vivid and visceral precision the horrors of a particular summer night in Detroit, Michigan, striking at the heart of injustices still urgently relevant to the U.S. today. As they did with “The Hurt Locker” and “Zero Dark Thirty,” Bigelow and Boal bring their cinematically intense focus to recent American history, creating a moviegoing experience resembling both drama and documentary. Nominated for four NAACP Awards including Best Film, “Detroit” features a fiercely committed cast of standout performers: John Boyega, Will Poulter, Algee Smith, Anthony Mackie, Jacob Latimore, Hannah Murray, John Krasinski, and more. The cast has been honored with the Actors Fund Community Service Award, recognizing their cohesive ensemble

Detroit movie review: racism 101 for white people

MaryAnn’s quick take… Tense, gripping, enraging, but only about things that black Americans already know. This is a primer about racism for white people, and we must pay attention. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Detroit is a movie about racism in America for white people. It mostly does not center black characters except as victims. Its villain — a murderously racist white cop — is also its protagonist. A movie about racism in America for white people isn’t the most terrible idea ever: Detroit wants to show us white people how the systematic weight of endless injustice weighs on black people, psychologically as well as physically, because of entrenched racism, not only of the actively vicious kind but also of the “I’m not getting involved, I’m just minding my own business” kind.

Game Of Thrones Theory Highlights Bran As The Show’s New Power Player

Knowledge is power, and recently, Game of Thrones viewers witnessed that age-old adage unfold through Bran and Samwell Tarly’s jaw-dropping exchange in Sunday’s season 7 finale, “The Dragon and the Wolf.”

Having returned north with Gilly (Hannah Murray) following their brief spell in the Citadel, Sam rushes to Winterfell in the hope of finding Jon Snow, the newly-anointed King of the North. Instead, he stumbles upon young Bran Stark, who is now going by the title of the Three-Eyed Raven. Imbued with psychic-like abilities, the young wolf has become Westeros’ bankable search engine, and that’s something we saw in action when Bran triggered a vision of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark’s super-secret wedding.

The result? Jon Snow isn’t a bastard; his name is Aegon Targaryen, and he’s the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. That admittedly makes Sunday’s impassioned love scene with Daenerys (she’s his aunt,

Game of Thrones: Season Seven Ratings

Last year, after creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss announced their plan to end Game of Thrones with its eighth season, HBO programming boss Casey Bloys confirmed that would be indeed the end. There's no need to worry that the show will be cancelled so, why track the ratings? Well, it's fun. It keeps us off the street. And most of all, it's a high water mark against which we can measure the success of other HBO TV series. Based on A Song of Ice and Fire, the best-selling George R.R. Martin book series, Game of Thrones stars Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Aidan Gillen, Kit Harington, Diana Rigg, Sophie Turner, and Maisie Williams.

‘Game of Thrones’ Star Admits Sam Totally Took Credit for Gilly’s Crucial Discovery About Jon Snow

‘Game of Thrones’ Star Admits Sam Totally Took Credit for Gilly’s Crucial Discovery About Jon Snow
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Game of Thrones” Season 7, Episode 7, “The Dragon and the Wolf.”]

In the packed “Game of Thrones” Season 7 finale, one detail may have slipped past viewers in light of all the other information that was imparted in a scene between Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) and Samwell Tarly (John Bradley).

Bran revealed to Sam that Jon Snow’s (Kit Harington) real parents were Prince Rhaegar Targaryen (Wilf Scolding) and Lyanna Stark (Aisling Franciosi), which would make him a Targaryen bastard. But Sam set Bran straight by revealing that Rhaegar and Lyanna had actually married, which not only made Jon legitimate, but also the heir to the Iron Throne.

'Game of Thrones' Creators Explain the Season 7 Finale's Royal Jon Snow Twist

[Warning: This story contains spoilers for the season seven finale of HBO's Game of Thrones, called "The Dragon and the Wolf."]

At long last, Game of Thrones fans finally have confirmation on the biggest Jon Snow (Kit Harington) theory in the whole story — not that it wasn't already mostly confirmed.

After Gilly (Hannah Murray) casually dropped the news about Jon being a legitimate Targaryen just a couple of episodes ago, the season seven finale, called "The Dragon and the Wolf," made the news even more explicit: Jon is indeed both dragon and wolf, the product of...

‘Detroit’ Review

Review by Matthew Turner

Stars: John Boyega, Will Poulter, Algee Smith, Jacob Latimore, Jason Mitchell, Hannah Murray, Kaitlyn Dever, Jack Reynor, Ben O’Toole | Written by Mark Boal | Directed by Kathryn Bigelow

Kathryn Bigelow’s third collaboration with screenwriter Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty) is a powerful, angry drama about racism, police brutality and the complicity of silence. Though it focuses on an incident that took place exactly fifty years ago, it feels horrifyingly relevant today and will leave you shaking with rage.

Detroit begins with white police officers raiding a black, after-hours drinking club in July 1967 and violently mistreating its patrons, an incident that quickly flares up into the Detroit Riots and brings the National Guard to the streets of the city. Meanwhile, at a nearby theatre, aspiring singer Larry (Algee Smith) is devastated when the rioting outside forces the closure of the venue, right before

Amidst the chaos of the Detroit Rebellion, with the city under curfew and as the Michigan National Guard patrolled the streets, three young African American men were murdered at the Algiers Motel.

There are few punches pulled in Kathryn Bigelow’s harrowing retelling of the Detroit riots of 1967. That is, until a white cop unwittingly stumbles upon the beaten, bruised body of Larry Reed-lead singer of pop group “The Dramatics – and with an absolute lack of self-awareness declares, “who could have done this to you.” It’s a rare moment of meat-headed,

‘Detroit’ Review: Dir. Kathryn Bigelow (2017)

Detroit review: Kathryn Bigelow directs this gritty, uncompromising story based around the true events of the summer of ’67 where three young African American men were murdered at the Algiers Motel in Detroit.

Detroit review by Paul Heath.

Detroit review, The Hollywood News – Image: Annapurna

Kathryn Bigelow follows up solid awards-worthy and indeed winning hits The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty with another hard-hitting drama set against the backdrop of 1960s Detroit.

The film takes place in the middle of the 1967 Detroit rebellion, a five-day long public disorder which began in the early hours of Sunday July 23rd, 1967, but more specifically at the events that took place at the Algiers Motel two nights later.

On that fateful evening, Larry Reed (Algee Smith) lead singer of the professional, black R&B group The Dramatics, along with his friend Fred Temple (Jacob Latimore) are involved in an incident which saw his tour bus attacked by rioters.

Detroit – London Press Conference Report

Recent events in Charlottesville hung over the room at the London press conference for Kathryn Bigelow’s Detroit. But they were far from being the elephant in the room that nobody would talk about.

Director Bigelow, along with cast members John Boyega, Will Poulter, Jack Reynor and Hannah Murray, tackled questions head on about the relevance of the events depicted in the film. Set in Detroit in 1967, it covers the riots in the city and the murder of three young African Americans. The film’s historical accuracy and attention to detail in telling the story was of equal importance to director and cast alike, with John Boyega relating how he met Melvin Desmukes, who he portrays in the film, and Bigelow describing how the real Julie (played on screen by Hannah Murray) was on set with her every day during filming.

Week in 'Game of Thrones': All Aboard the Jon Targaryen Train

There are still two episodes left this season on HBO's Game of Thrones, and eight episodes overall before the show ends for good — but one big question about the Iron Throne has been already answered.

In this past week's installment, "Eastwatch," Gilly (Hannah Murray) casually dropped one of the single most important reveals we've ever experienced on the show: Jon Snow (Kit Harington) is a legitimate Targaryen, the product of the official marriage of Lyanna Stark and Prince Rhaegar. That means of all the contenders for the Iron Throne, Jon Snow is the one with the...

  • HeyUGuys
Author: David Sztypuljak

Detroit hits cinemas in the UK 25th August and today we’ve been lucky enough to attend the press conference in London Town for the movie which has to be seen to be believed.

Actors John Boyega (Star Wars), Will Poulter (The Maze Runner), Hannah Murray (Game of Thrones) & Jack Reynor (Free Fire) were all in attendance alongside their Academy Award winning director Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty).

There was a lovely moment in the press conference where John Boyega recounted the first time he met Will Poulter…..

Detroit tells the story of the Detroit Rebellion of 1967 which saw the Michigan National Guard join both the State and local police to attempt to quash the uprising. The second act of the movie focuses on the events at the Algiers Motel which ultimately saw three young African Americans murdered.
