Opening in theaters on August 4, Detroit stars John Boyega, Chris Chalk, John Krasinski, Anthony Mackie, Jason Mitchell, Will Poulter, Jack Reynor, Ben O’Toole, Nathan Davis Jr., Kaitlyn Dever, Austin Hébert, Joseph David-Jones, Malcolm David Kelley, Jeremy Strong, Jacob Latimore, Algee Smith, Hannah Murray, Ephraim Sykes, Leon Thomas III, and Peyton Alex Smith.
