Kathryn Bigelow’s latest, Zero Dark Thirty, is scheduled to touch down across the pond next week, and is already scoring plenty of awards. The final trailer – at least that US audiences will see before it opens there – is now online and can be watched above.
This one focuses on Jessica Chastain as Maya, one of the CIA analysts at the heart of the search for Osama Bin Laden.
The film itself is a multi-faceted look at the manhunt for the terrorist mastermind, a search, as one man seems to indicate in the trailer itself, that was increasingly feeling like a wild goose chase with no end in sight and an endless money pit waiting to happen.
But after months of controversial and questionable interrogations came an intelligence break and... well, the rest is history. Literally.
Based on the real events, albeit dramatized by Bigelow and writer Mark Boal, the movie features an impressive cast including Jason Clarke, Kyle Chandler, Jennifer Ehle, Mark Strong, James Gandolfini, Joel Edgerton, Chris Pratt and Mark Duplass.
Zero Dark Thirty lands in UK cinemas on January 25.
