Critically, Detroit was a triumph. Most people who saw Kathryn Bigelow’s profound and pertinent drama were left enlightened and moved by what they had seen, yet the box office figures were a little disappointing. Will Poulter – who plays the violently racist cop Philip Krauss in Detroit – spoke exclusively to Yahoo Movies to explain why he believed this to have been the case.
Will Poulter's Halloween 2017 costume was pure genius, but Kristen Bell, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Bruce Willis also impressed.
The DC Extended Universe is expanding in a slightly unexpected direction with the news that an origin movie is in the works for The Joker, arch-nemesis of Batman and arguably just as iconic a figure in the DC pantheon.

Interestingly, Fukunaga would seem to allude to Freddy Krueger when hinting at his efforts to make iconic villain Pennywise “more than just the clown, after 30 years of villains that could read the emotional minds of characters and scare them.” Memorably portrayed by Tim Curry in the 1990 TV mini-series adaptation of King’s novel, Pennywise was set to be played by Will Poulter in Fukunaga’s film, although it is unclear whether or not the actor is still on board now that the project is up in the air.
