Oscar-winning writer/director Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker) goes behind the scenes of the hunting and killing of Bin Laden in Zero Dark Thirty. This new trailer is the longest one yet, promising a whole lot of grim suspense this December.
Zero Dark Thirty is director Kathryn Bigelow's and writer Mark Boal's dramatization of the Navy SEAL Team 6 mission to kill Osama bin Laden -- and given the controversy over the source material (Bigelow and Boal were allowed access to essentially classified documents by the Obama administration), this trailer is a major letdown.
In theaters December 19.
Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., is aghast -- and rightly so -- over news that Hurt Locker director Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal were given access to Seal Team Six and information about the death of Osama bin Laden for their upcoming movie Zero Dark Thirty.
If this facility is so secret that the name cannot even be seen by the public, then why in the world would the Obama administration allow filmmakers to tour it?
The administration has shared with the filmmakers information defended from Freedom of Information Act inquiries, Congressional committees, and anyone else not involved in making movies about war zones.
