Last December began the shooting of Kings, racial drama set in the revolts of Los Angeles in 1992 after the sentence of the Rodney King case.
The Los Angeles riots (also known as the Rodney King riots, the South Central riots, the 1992 Los Angeles civil disturbance, the 1992 Los Angeles civil unrest, and the Los Angeles uprising) were a series of riots, lootings, arsons, and civil disturbances that occurred in Los Angeles County in the spring of 1992. The unrest began in South Central Los Angeles on April 29 after a trial jury acquitted four officers of the Los Angeles Police Department of the use of excessive force in the videotaped arrest and beating of Rodney King. It then spread throughout the Los Angeles metropolitan area as thousands of people rioted over a six-day period following the announcement of the verdict.
Daniel Craig joins Halle Berry and we already have his first images together:
The director of the film is the Turkish Denis Gamze Ergüven and this is his first work in English after the success in 2015 with Mustang, which won in Cannes, in the César Awards, in the Spanish Goya Awards, nominated to the BAFTA…
Kings‘ argument, however, has already shown some controversy as it seems to focus on a woman (Berry), secretly in love with Ollie (Craig), one of the few whites living in south central Los Angeles in the early nineties. Both will try to protect some children during the riots. The participation of the white character as a supposed savior has made comments appear before seeing a second of the film.
Remember that the following project of Daniel Craig is the filming of the TV serial Purity of twenty chapters and two seasons.
