A batch of new images from director Kathryn Bigelow’s upcoming drama Zero Dark Thirty has been released online. The film documents the decade-long hunt for Osama bin Laden, culminating in the now-famous SEAL Team Six operation. We only recently became aware that Jessica Chastain plays the lead in the film, a CIA operative spearheading the manhunt, and these new images feature the actress front and center. We also get a look at Kyle Chandler, who I believe plays Chastain’s superior at the CIA. It’s like Homeland, but with considerably less crazy.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Chris Pratt, Mark Strong, Scott Adkins, Joel Edgerton, and James Gandolfini. Zero Dark Thirty opens in limited release on December 19th, then expands nationwide on January 11th.
For a decade, an elite team of intelligence and military operatives, working in secret across the globe, devoted themselves to a single goal: to find and eliminate Osama bin Laden. Zero Dark Thirty reunites the Oscar(R) winning team of director-producer Kathryn Bigelow and writer-producer Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker) for the story of history’s greatest manhunt for the world’s most dangerous man.
