In all honesty, director Kathryn Bigelow is usually spot on with her directing. Films like Point Break, Near Dark and Strange Days have earned her the respect and reputation she so rightly deserves, but it was 2008’s The Hurt Locker which catapulted her to a brand new level of brilliance, and now with her new film Zero Dark Thirty getting set to arrive, the director is about to make headlines all over again. A risky subject, but one which has a lot of interest, Zero Dark Thirty looks at the ten year hunt for Osama Bin Laden and charts the events leading up to his death.
A trailer was released back in August which didn’t reveal too much of the film, but with the release date scheduled for 19th December in the US and 25th January here in the UK, it is time for a new trailer with more footage. Released yesterday, along with a new poster, the much longer trailer is gripping from start to finish, and features tons more footage from the film. It looks incredible, check it out below.
Kathryn Bigelow directs and Mark Boal is on writing duties. The amazing cast includes Joel Edgerton, Jessica Chastain, Edgar Ramirez, Kyle Chandler, Mark Strong, Chris Pratt, Jason Clarke, Harold Perrineau, Nash Edgerton and Jennifer Ehle.
For a decade, an elite team of intelligence and military operatives, working in secret across the globe, devoted themselves to a single goal: to find and eliminate Osama bin Laden. Zero Dark Thirty reunites the Oscar(R) winning team of director-producer Kathryn Bigelow and writer-producer Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker) for the story of history’s greatest manhunt for the world’s most dangerous man.
