Lionsgate drops the trailer poster for 1992

The Rodney King riots should have been a wake-up call to the world, but sadly there are still way too many cases like this with very little consequences. There have been numerous films focusing on elements of these events with the latest being 1992 starring Tyrese Gibson, Clé Bennett, Dylan Arnold, Christopher A’mmanuel, Michael Beasley, Ori Pfeffer, Tosin Morohunfola, Oleg Taktarov, with Scott Eastwood, and Ray Liotta from The Iceman and Criminal director Ariel Vromen.


1992 follows Mercer who is desperately trying to rebuild his life and his relationship with his son amidst the turbulent 1992 LA uprising following the Rodney King verdict. Across town, another father and son put their own strained relationship to the test as they plot a dangerous heist to steal catalytic converters, which contain valuable platinum, from the factory where Mercer works. As tensions rise in Los Angeles and chaos erupts, both families reach their boiling points when they collide in this tense crime-thriller.

While you will have to wait until August 30th to see the film in theaters you can check out the poster and trailer here now from Lionsgate and Death Row Pictures.
