Poster for Kathryn Bigelow’s ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ Promises to Show Us the Greatest Manhunt in History
At this point in the year, we’re usually pretty sure which films will be Oscar contenders and which will languish in the land of the uncelebrated, but it seems we can’t count out Kathryn Bigelow’s upcoming war movie Zero Dark Thirty. After being celebrated by the academy for ‘The Hurt Locker’ a few years ago, this looks like a shoe-in and a difficult subject matter just increases its appeal. It’s the story of the hunt for Osama Bin Laden, and promises to show the intensity and brutality of the decade-long mission.
Starring Jessica Chastain, Joel Edgerton, Mark Strong, James Gandolfini, Chris Pratt and Mark Duplass, the film opens in limited release on December 19th.
