It is at least filmed in Missouri.  I don't know if Missouri is actually supposed to be the backdrop for the movie.
I have seen the trailer, but am not a fan of home invasion movies.  I was planning to pass up on this one in any case.

I like it. I hope they kill the whole family. You know how many movies I've seen where everyone dies for the one White girl? I keep thinking,"We'll just kill her. Duh!" If everyone in the movies dies to save the Black guy, I won't think it is racist. Say what you will about me.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who was deeply disturbed by this preview. As I said before, I haven't seen the movie so I hope it's not as deep as I'm interpreting it. Check out this link below though, it explains some very deep racial motives of this film.

The whole white savior thing is tired. White people need to stop using blacks in film unless they are superior or winning.

Damn, I seen the preview and even I had to question why they had the lone Black guy sweating like he stole something being targeted.
Seeing that preview automatically makes the viewer say "Damn, why did he try and save that nigg@".
 
There are definitely some subliminals going on under the guise of "good intentions".
I am up in the air on if I will see this movie or not.

I'll wait to see why the black guy is being targeted to make that decision. There seems to be plenty of other targets but his story is just the focus of the movie.
