1992 Trailer: A desperate father tries to rebuild family amidst LA riots

The official trailer of Tyrese Gibson-led film 1992, set against the backdrop of the LA riots, has released on Tuesday.

The trailer video shows Tyrese as a desperate father who is trying to make amends and rebuild his family and relationship with his son before the Los Angeles Riots break out.

The official plotline reads, "Mercer (Tyrese Gibson) is desperately trying to rebuild his life and his relationship with his son (Christopher A’mmanuel) amidst the turbulent 1992 LA uprising following the Rodney King verdict. Across town, another father and son (Ray Liotta and Scott Eastwood) put their own strained relationship to the test as they plotted 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."

To put things into historical perspective, the film is set against the backdrop of the Los Angeles Riots in 1992. The riots were set off due to the acquittal of four Los Angeles Police Department officials who were caught on camera beating Rodney King (a person of colour) to arrest him. The riots resulted in 63 deaths, over 2000 injuries, and 12,111 arrests.

Apart from Tyrese Gibson, the film also stars Ray Liotta (this would be his last appearance), Scott Eastwood, Michael Beasley, Christopher Ammanuel, and Dylan Arnold.

The film's director, Ariel Vroman, shares the screenplay credits with Boaz Dekel. Cinematographer David Gurfinkel, editor Tova Asher, and music composer Berry Sakharof are part of 1992's technical crew.

The film will release in the United States on August 30 this year.
