The movie, which chronicles the 1967 Detroit riots, highlights the ongoing injustices that black people face in the United States. “Yeah, I’d probably only be able to watch this every ten years,” Boyega tells GQ. “Being black, going through what we’ve been through…the past is still hanging over our heads.”

The leading man also talks about getting advice from Robert Downey Jr., taking Harrison Ford to a Nigerian restaurant in London, and his role in the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and diversity in the movie industry.
