Yes, we know how the hunt for Osama Bin Laden ends, but few can say they know the full story. Zero Dark Thirty, the most recent film from Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker) attempts to tell that tale, focusing not just on the Seal Team 6 mission, but a large portion of the overarching manhunt.
For Bigelow, a film about the toll war takes on all involved isn't entirely new territory, but the fact she is re-teaming with her Hurt Locker scribe Mark Boal has us very intrigued. Not to mention, the film has already built a tremendous amount of critical buzz and Golden Globe nominations, cementing its place in this year's Oscar race. Just like last year's Lincoln, Zero Dark Thirty promises to be a somewhat familiar story as told by one of our truly exceptional cinematic storytellers.
