New Images From Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty

Jessica Chastain stars in account of the black ops hunt for Osama bin Laden.

Four new images from Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty have been released, along with a striking poster.

The Oscar-winning director follows up her critical hit The Hurt Locker with an account of the now legendary US Navy SEAL Team Six operation, which took down Osama bin Laden. Writer and producer Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker) was researching the team on location when Bin Laden was killed, forcing a dramatic rewrite.

The cast includes Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Joel Edgerton, Jennifer Ehle, Mark Strong, Kyle Chandler and Edgar Ramirez, with Chastain the focus of these new images.

Zero Dark Thirty is released in the UK 25th January 2013.

The hunt for Osama bin Laden preoccupied the world and two American presidential administrations for more than a decade. But in the end, it took a small, brilliant team of CIA operatives to track him down. Every aspect of their mission was shrouded in secrecy. Though some of the details have since been made public, many of the most significant parts of the intelligence operation-including the central role played by that team-are brought to the screen for the first time in a gripping new film by the Oscar®-winning creative duo of Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal.

Their account of bin Laden’s pursuit and capture, vivid yet faithful to the facts, takes the viewer inside the hubs of power and to the front lines of this historic mission, culminating in the special operations assault on a mysterious, suburban Pakistani compound.
