A new trailer has been released for Zero Dark Thirty, Kathryn Bigelow’s follow-up to her Oscar-winning The Hurt Locker.
She reunites with screenwriter Mark Boal for this lengthy drama based on the black ops team that took down Osama bin Laden. The film has been gathering critics’ awards, and this week gained four Golden Globe nominations. The buzz is high on this one, and Bigelow is looking at another Oscar nomination at the very least.
Jessica Chastain leads an ensemble cast that includes Kyle Chandler, Chris Pratt, Mark Strong, Jennifer Ehle, Scott Adkins, Joel Edgerton and James Gandolfini.
Zero Dark Thirty is in UK cinemas 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.
