The first trailer for SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden has gone online.  With as historical an event as the death of bin Laden, you would think that either this film or Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty would have provided a sense of tension, raised stakes or even a question of moral ambiguity that surely came with the operation.  Neither trailer gives a sense of this, so at least SEAL Team Six isn’t out of its league with Bigelow’s bigger budget.

SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden, aka Code Name: Geronimostars Cam Gigandet, Anson Mount, Freddy Rodriquez, Xzibit, Kathleen Robertson, Eddie Kay Thomas, Kenneth Miller, Robert Knepper and William Fichtner. Written by Kendall LampkinSEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden premieres on the National Geographic Channel on Sunday November 4th, just before election day.  Hit the jump to watch the trailer.

Readers may find it a bit odd that the film is debuting on the National Geographic Channel rather than a typical theatrical release.  The NatGeo team worked with The Weinstein Company over the past few months to hone the picture into line with the network’s audiences.  While Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty will be released more than a month later and clear from any election ties, SEAL Team Six looks to be one last reminder that, hey, under Obama’s administration, the most wanted man in the world was killed.

Deadline brought the trailer for SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden to our attention.  Check it out below:
