STX released a first look trailer for “21 Bridges,” a new suspense thriller scheduled to hit theaters in September. The all-star cast includes Chadwick Boseman, Sienna Miller, Stephan James, Keith David, Taylor Kitsch, and J.K. Simmons. Brian Kirk directed the movie for the studio, with Anthony Russo, Joe Russo, Mike Larocca, Gigi Pritzker, Chadwick Boseman, and Logan Coles serving as producers. “21 Bridges” hits theaters on September 27th.
The story follows an embattled NYPD detective (Chadwick Boseman), who is thrust into a citywide manhunt for a pair of cop killers after uncovering a massive and unexpected conspiracy. As the night unfolds, lines become blurred on who he is pursuing, and who is in pursuit of him. When the search intensifies, extreme measures are taken to prevent the killers from escaping Manhattan as the authorities close all 21 bridges to prevent any entry or exit from the island.
The studio released the trailer during comic-con weekend, as the Russo brothers gathered to discuss their “Magic: The Gathering” series on Netflix, and the current state of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“21 Bridges” opens in theaters against the animated-comedy “Abominable,” and the action-thriller “The Hunt” from Jason Blum. Both of those projects are from Universal Pictures, bu the big competition is the following week when Warner Bros. Pictures releases “Joker” starring Joaquin Phoenix, and FOX releases “The Woman in the Window” with Amy Adams. During those two weekends, the specialty box office offers “The Day Shall Come” comedy with Anna Kendrick, and “Judy” with Renee Zellweger, Finn Witrock, and Michael Gambon. That’s also the same time-frame that “The Current War” with Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Shannon, and Nicholas Hoult hits theaters, as well as “Pain and Glory” with Penelope Cruz and Antonio Banderas.
San Diego Comic-Con runs from Thursday July 18th through July 21st, and you can find more SDCC Headlines to stay on top of the announcements and trailers.
