Academy Award winner Denzel Washington’s new psychological thriller The Little Things led the domestic box office charts for a second weekend in a row, pulling in $2.1 million in its second weekend of release while simultaneously streaming on HBO Max.

Directed by John Lee Hancock, the film takes place in October 1990. Kern County Sheriff’s Deputy Joe “Deke” Deacon (Washington) is sent to Los Angeles for what should have been a quick evidence-gathering assignment.

Instead, he becomes embroiled in the search for a killer who is terrorizing the city. Leading the hunt, L.A. County Sheriff’s Homicide Department Sergeant Jim Baxter (Malek), impressed with Deke’s cop instincts, unofficially engages his help.

But as they track the killer, Baxter is unaware that the investigation is dredging up echoes of Deke’s past, uncovering disturbing secrets that could threaten more than his case.

In the video below, Denzel Washington chats about the film, how he researched for the role of Joe Deacon, what it was like to work with Malek and Leto. And… wait for it… his daughter, Olivia. Watch below:
