‘Zero Dark Thirty’: First Teaser Trailer and Images for Kathryn Bigelow’s Latest

Columbia Pictures

We’re all familiar with the story of the special forces unit that killed Osama Bin Laden, the world’s most notorious terrorist. Kathryn Bigelow‘s latest feature, ‘Zero Dark Thirty,’ is the story of SEAL Team 6, the men responsible for bringing Bin Laden down. We’ve got an official first look at the film via a new teaser trailer and images.

The images come courtesy of Entertainment Weekly and don’t give us much to go on besides aesthetics. There’s a smoky image of members of the SEAL team, the guys outside of a compound with weapons drawn (looking kind of bad-ass), a serious-looking Joel Edgerton, Kyle Chandler doing a pretty solid thinking pose, and Mark Strong not being the villain of something (and that appears to be Mark Duplass in the background to the left in the Strong image).

A little more illuminating is the teaser, which gives us a hint of the tone of the film, featuring a male voice shouting, “When was the last time you saw Bin Laden?!” along with some overhead shots of the area where Bin Laden was found (nice graphics) and Jennifer Ehle doing some investigating. For a brief, one-minute teaser, it’s a little intense. Screenwriter Mark Boal says of the film, “There‚Äôs no political agenda in the film. Full stop. Period.” We’re into it.

‘Zero Dark Thirty’ features a huge cast, including Joel Edgerton, Kyle Chandler, Jennifer Ehle, Harold Perrineau, Mark Duplass, Nash Edgerton, Jessica Chastain, Edgar Ramirez, Mark Strong, Chris Pratt, Jason Clarke and many more. Bigelow is quoted as saying, “There are over 100 speaking roles, featuring teams of operatives, from [Department of Defense], CIA, Navy SEALs, et. al. that intersect with foreign nationals and enemy combatants.”

The film hits theaters December 19. Merry Christmas, America!
