John Boyega returns to the limelight in Breaking, a heist movie based on a true story.
The former rebel stormtrooper from the last Star Wars trilogy, John Boyega, had somewhat disappeared from view since the stampede of The Rise of Skywalker . The actor, who rose to prominence in Attack the Block, was notably supposed to return eventually in the sequel to the alien invasion film, but no news yet. Apart from his appearance in the series Small Axe,John Boyega has been more than discreet without a major role to get his teeth into.
Fortunately, the Breaking trailer >has just landed and marks the actor's return to good form in a dramatic thriller where he occupies a large part of the playing space. A perfect exercise for John Boyega who has everything to prove (to like the character in the film) in this robbery where he demands everyone's attention.
Based on a news item, Breaking tells the story of Marine Brian Brown-Easley who decides, because of his financial distress, to take all the employees of a bank hostage in order to have a confrontation with the police. and with as many people as possible. At the center of the plot, social drama, thriller and story of a post-traumatic syndrome.
John Boyega embodies a character tormented in freefall in American civilian life, trying everything for everything. In front of him, an embodied policeman (in one of his last roles) the very invested Michael Kenneth Williams. The trailer compares the film toA Dog's Afternoon, Sidney Lumet's masterpiece starring Al Pacino, also a heist film with similar themes. Breaking will be released on August 26 in the United States. In France, it remains for the momentwithout an official release date and without a distributor either.
