Oscar winning director Kathryn Bigelow returns to contemporary issues again with her Hurt Locker follow up, the strangely titled Zero Dark Thirty. An alternative title suggested by me, and not taken up, was Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden?
The film follows the top secret mission to finally bring the terrorist to justice when Team Six of the US Navy Seal delivered some well over due gunishment to the evil doer (to use a phrase from George W. Bush). Bigelow has attracted a fine cast and Mark Boal’s, writer of The Hurt Locker, also returns on pen duties. Starring is Chris Pratt, Jessica Chastain, Mark Strong, Scott Adkins, Joel Edgerton and Kyle Chandler.
A teaser US trailer has appeared online and you can watch it below. The flick is set for release December 19th in the USA and in the UK sometime in 2013. EW magazine also published some recent images. So check ‘em out.
US Release Date: 19th December
