[Teaser] – Zero Dark Thirty

6 Aug

Watch the teaser for the highly-anticipated Zero Dark Thirty after the cut.

Kathryn Bigelow‘s last film was The Hurt Locker, which focussed on a bomb disposal team in the Iraq war, and won half a dozen Oscars, including Best Director for Ms. Bigelow (becoming the first woman to win the award), Best Screenplay for Mark Boal, and, of course, Best Picture, a statue they both collected, alongside Nicolas Chartier and Greg Shapiro, as producers of the film.

Well, Ms. Bigelow and Mr. Boal are teaming up once again, and this time their new film is also about war, this one telling the story behind the capture and death of Osama bin Laden by the Navy SEAL Team Six last year. As you might imagine, the expectations are way high, and there’s obviously a bit of controvery because of the subject matter.

The first trailer for it just premiered today, and it’s super short but it looks like the film will deliver on the promise. This looks intense as hell and even if you don’t know the characters of which characters the actors here are really playing, the cast is pretty fantastic. Look for this, obviously, to be one of the heavy-hitters come Oscar night.

Directed by Kathryn Bigelow; written by Mark Boal; starring Jessica Chastain, Joel Edgerton, Mark Strong, Édgar Ramírez, Jennifer Ehle, Chris Pratt and Kyle Chandler. Zero Dark Thirty opens December 19.
