This phase III trial studies how well chemotherapy and radiation therapy work with or without atezolizumab in treating patients with localized muscle invasive bladder cancer. Radiation therapy uses high energy rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as gemcitabine, cisplatin, fluorouracil and mitomycin-C, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading.
Giving chemotherapy with radiation therapy may kill more tumor cells. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as atezolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving atezolizumab with radiation therapy and chemotherapy may work better in treating patients with localized muscle invasive bladder cancer compared to radiation therapy and chemotherapy without atezolizumab.

Active Comparator: Arm I (RT, chemotherapy)
Patients undergo RT (3D CRT or IMRT) Monday-Friday for up to 7 weeks. Patients also receive chemotherapy based on physician's choice of gemcitabine IV twice weekly for 6 weeks, or cisplatin IV weekly for 6 weeks concurrent with RT, or fluorouracil IV on same days as doses 1-5 and 16-20 of radiation therapy, and mitomycin IV on day 1 of radiation therapy in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Experimental: Arm II (RT, chemotherapy, atezolizumab)
Patients undergo RT (3DCRT or IMRT) Monday-Friday for up to 7 weeks and receive chemotherapy based on physician's choice as in Arm I. Patients also receive atezolizumab IV over 60 minutes on day 1 of chemotherapy. Treatment repeats every 21 days for a total of 6 months (9 doses total) in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
