The film was released by Annapurna Pictures in select theaters in July before expanding in the first week of August. The film fell victim to a dismal August box office, earning only $16 million over the course of 11 weeks. But it does boast an 82% score on Rotten Tomatoes, and a 78 on Metacritic.
The planned re-release is planned for 10 markets, including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Palm Springs, Maui and Aspen. The timing coincides with the onslaught of awards season films, with the opening date of December 1. This is after the digital release on November 28, but before the film is available on DVD or BluRay.
“Detroit” was directed by Academy Award winner Kathryn Bigelow. Bigelow became the first woman to win the Oscar for Achievement in Directing with 2009’s “The Hurt Locker.” That film also won Best Picture. She was nominated again for producing the 2012 film “Zero Dark Thirty,” although she fell short of being nominated for Best Director that year. “Detroit” was her first feature length film since “Zero Dark Thirty.”
“Detroit” stars a number of up-and-coming stars including John Boyega (“Star Wars: The Last Jedi”), Will Poulter (“The Revenant”), Algee Smith (“The New Edition Story”), Jason Mitchell (“Mudbound”), and Hannah Murray (“Game of Thrones”).
