After the Academy Award-winning success of their The Hurt Locker, director Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal really only have themselves to beat when it comes to their next drama, a film about the hunt for Osama bin Laden, Zero Dark Thirty (or as we all called it for awhile, Kill Bin Laden). So how convenient for them that the film’s first teaser trailer looks, oh, what’s the word? Awesome? It looks awesome?
It looks awesome.
The film stars Joel Edgerton, Jessica Chastain, Edgar Ramirez, Mark Strong, Kyle Chandler, Nash Edgerton, Jennifer Ehle, Harold Perrineau, and Frank Grillo. And this first teaser speaks for itself (occasionally loudly). Check it out after the break.
Zero Dark Thirty opens on December 19th. [Entertainment Weekly]
