After an initial teaser trailer that was as mysterious as the mission itself, we finally have a full-length trailer for Kathryn Bigelow’s Osama Bin Laden thriller “Zero Dark Thirty”, and there’s plenty more exposition contained here. For one thing, it’s great to see Jessica Chastain taking prominence, as the analyst who uncovered the intelligence that ultimately led to the raid on Bin Laden’s compound by Navy SEAL Team Six, which in the film will be played by the likes of Joel Edgerton, Jason Clarke and Chris Pratt.
The parting shot of the SEALs through night vision goggles approaching Bin Laden’s compound was nothing short of heart-pounding, but I must say, it’s a relief to see just as much emphasis placed on the intelligence research that made it possible for President Obama to ultimately give the order for the SEALs to carry out the mission. In order to not sway the Presidential Election in any way – but to sway Oscar voters big time – “Zero Dark Thirty” will be released on December 19th. Watch the first trailer below.
