If you told me that someone was making a movie about the assassination of Osama Bin Laden, I would say something like "Booooring, of course someone is, and they'll probably butcher it." But if you told me that someone was making a movie about the assassination of Bin Laden and it was Kathryn Bigelow (the only woman to ever win an Oscar for Best Director) and Mark Boal (an Oscar-award winning screenwriter) I would say something like "OHMYGOD I have to see it!!" And that's basically my reaction to this trailer for their upcoming Zero Dark Thirty - which is below the jump.
Retelling the story leading up to the death of Osama Bin Laden, Jessica Chastain stars as an American intelligence operative who would not give up the hunt on one of the greatest manhunts in American history. Zero Dark Thirty opens in LA and NY on December 19th and everywhere else on January 11th.
