<p>The official <a href="https://ift.tt/frXME0S> for <em>Breaking </em>has made its way online. Based on a true story, the movie features a drastically different <a href="https://ift.tt/4S0cChH from John Boyega</a> and one of the last performances from Michael K. Williams. </p> <h2>John Boyega stars as a veteran who is running out of options</h2> <figure class="wp-block-image size-custom-image-1200"><img loading="lazy" width="5000" height="3703" src="https://ift.tt/bOujQS9" alt="Breaking actor John Boyega attends the premiere of Jordan Peele's Nope" class="wp-image-3125754" srcset="https://ift.tt/YBRjlyz 5000w, https://ift.tt/Mpdzo3v 640w, https://ift.tt/QmTzns4 768w, https://ift.tt/vD9F4At 1024w, https://ift.tt/2cjM1sr 1536w, https://ift.tt/bPu1j80 2048w, https://ift.tt/o5zVDsX 1200w, https://ift.tt/y7BEQnS 81w, https://ift.tt/ybQltFf 150w" sizes="(max-width: 5000px) 100vw, 5000px" /><figcaption>Jordan Peele | JC Olivera/Getty Images</figcaption></figure> <p>In <em>Breaking</em>, Boyega plays Brian Brown-Easley, a real-life veteran who is in a desperate financial situation. After being mistreated by veterans affairs and worried about what his financial troubles will do to his daughter, Brown-Easley robs a bank with a bomb threat in 2017. Initially, Jonathan Majors was set to play Boyega’s role but had to leave the project due to scheduling conflicts with <a href="https://ift.tt/g1WUBxZ Marvel role</a>. </p> <p>The movie is directed by Abi Damaris Corbin and is co-written by Corbin and Kwame Kwei-Armah. Along with Boyega, the movie stars Williams, Jeffrey Donovan, Olivia Washington, Nicole Beharie, Selenis Leyva, and Connie Britton. Here is the official synopsis shared by Bleecker Street:</p> <p>“When Marine Veteran Brian Brown-Easley is denied support from Veteran’s Affairs, financially desperate and running out of options, he takes a bank and several of its employees hostage, setting the stage for a tense confrontation with the police.”</p> <h2>The ‘Breaking’ trailer features a tense confrontation with police</h2> <figure class="wp-block-embed is-type-video is-provider-youtube wp-block-embed-youtube wp-embed-aspect-16-9 wp-has-aspect-ratio"><div class="wp-block-embed__wrapper"> <div class="jetpack-video-wrapper"><iframe loading="lazy" title="Breaking - Official Trailer (2022) John Boyega, Nicole Beharie" width="925" height="520" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/G0lWSsbq1tU?feature=oembed" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> </div></figure> <p>The first trailer for <em>Breaking</em> promises a tense and dramatic conflict between Brown-Easley and the police. Brown-Easley does not seem like someone who wants to hurt anybody, but he is trying to bring attention to his situation. Williams plays one of the officers who is trying to calm him down and resolve the conflict peacefully. The film balances multiple tones including drama, suspense, and a touch of humor. </p> <p>Boyega has become a major star recently due to his role as Finn in the<em> </em><a href="https://ift.tt/XELF0qa Wars</em> sequel trilogy</a>. He also won a Golden Globe for his role in <em>Small Axe: Red, White, and Blue</em>. This looks like a radical shift on his acting resume, showing the range that he can bring to a role. He also has a solid American accent for someone from the UK. Many fans in the YouTube comments are impressed by his transformation. </p> <p>Fans are also looking forward to seeing Williams in one of his final roles. Williams died in September 2021 and he earned a small but passionate fan base through his role in <em>The Wire</em>. He appears to have a central role in <em>Breaking </em>and many comments show appreciation for the late actor and his career. </p> <h2 id="h-when-does-breaking-release-in-theaters">When does ‘Breaking’ release in theaters?</h2> <figure class="wp-block-embed is-type-rich is-provider-twitter wp-block-embed-twitter"><div class="wp-block-embed__wrapper"> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-width="550" data-dnt="true"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Here's the trailer for my new movie BREAKING.
