“Close the island!”

The Russo Brothers’ panel at San Diego Comic-Con was wide ranging to say the least. They talked Avengers: Endgame, new projects and they released a trailer for 21 Bridges, a new film starring someone they’ve worked with before, Black Panther’s Chadwick Boseman.

21 Bridges follows an embattled NYPD detective (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 iconic island.  

As you can tell from the description, It’s a bit different fare than what we’ve seen recently from the Russo Brothers. There are no sorcery, superheroes or spaceships here. It’s a straight up suspense film and it looks action-packed. Joining Chadwick Boseman in the cast are J.K. Simmons, Sienna Miller, Stephan James, Keith David and Taylor Kitsch. Check out the trailer and the poster below:
