Even though Kathryn Bigelow’s intense Iraq war thriller The Hurt Locker hit theaters back on June 26, that sure won’t stop me from writing about it — it is perhaps the best film that will hit theaters in 2009. I know that’s a bit hyperbolic, but I can do that, I’m yet to be proven wrong by any other ’09 release.
In the Hurt Locker update column today, we have both a set of new posters and a wicked new clip. The clip, which comes to us courtesy of Apple, is from one of my favorite scenes in the entire film. It features Sgt. Will James inspecting a low-sitting car that has been parked in front of a U.N. building in Baghdad. As you will see in the clip below, he finds there to be more than one bomb — leading him to show that his methods aren’t exactly on par with those of the rest of his team. It is a great setup scene for his character. Check it out below.
Also, you can view the clip above with director and writer commentary with Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal over at Apple.
Second on my daily Hurt Locker update list is a pair of new international posters, neither of which is as incredible as the previous domestic poster, but both of which are pretty cool. Check them out by clicking the thumbnails below.
The Hurt Locker is in theaters now.
