A few new images and a new clip from director Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty have landed online. The film documents the decade-long manhunt for Osama bin Laden, focusing on a CIA analyst whose obsession with tracking the terrorist down eventually led to his assassination. The drama has picked up plenty of praise since the first critics’ screenings took place last weekend, and judging by the amount of marketing material released in the past few days, Columbia Pictures is gunning for the Oscar win.
Hit the jump to check out the images and the clip, which shows SEAL Team Six taking off for their mission. The film stars Jessica Chastain, Joel Edgerton, Kyle Chandler, Chris Pratt, Mark Strong, Scott Adkins, and James Gandolfini. Zero Dark Thirty opens in limited release on December 19th and expands nationwide on January 11th.
