How do you follow up the year’s biggest box-office blockbuster — the highest-grossing movie of all time — Avengers: Endgame? If you are Anthony and Joe Russo, the directing duo behind the record-breaking Marvel Cinematic Universe offering, you make a film casting Black Panther's Chadwick Boseman as a cop hunting down killers in New York City.
At San Diego Comic-Con, the brothers debuted a new trailer for 21 Bridges, the first film they produced under their new production banner, Agbo Films. The gritty thriller features Chadwick as a New York City detective trying to track down a pair of cop killers before they can escape the island of Manhattan. After putting the entire island on lockdown, he quickly finds himself sucked into a morally ambiguous vortex where the line between who he’s pursuing and who are pursuing him become increasingly blurred.
He shuts down bridges, closes tunnels, seals off rivers — practically locks down the whole island of Manhattan. No one could come in or go out, and that either could help or hurt this intense chase. The trailer boasts of an amazing star cast of Oscar-nominated actors such as J. K. Simmons, Sienna Miller, and Taylor Kitsch.
Chadwick also serves as an executive producer on the film alongside the Russos, Mike Larocca, Gigi Pritzker, and Logan Coles for STX Films. Brian Kirk directed the actioner and the film will be out on September 27. Watch the full trailer for 21 Bridges below:
