The Cinematic Katzenjammer: The Trailer Park: Zero Dark Thirty

The Trailer Park: Zero Dark Thirty


Zero Dark Thirty is a movie that's been hiding in the shadows. What we know is that it's a fictionalized account of man-hunt of Osama Bin Laden and it's all directed by Kathryn Bigelow, whose 2008 film, The Hurt Locker won all sorts of awards include Academy Awards for both Best Picture and Best Director. Zero Dark Thirty looks to continue Bigelow's journey into war going on in the Middle East and the trailer below finally gives us more of a look at the film (the earlier teaser was just that... it teased). 

The film stars Joel Edgerton, Jessica Chastain, Kyle Chandler, and Chris Pratt, as well as a handful of other names you'll surely recognize. While the trailer doesn't show a lot about the movie, it still shows a lot more than the first one and makes me want to see more almost immediately. Zero Dark Thirty seems to be a nice blend of both political and action elements and could easily go head to head with this week's Argo as the best "historical" drama of the year. 

I'd also like to mention that I pray to God this film does to Joel Edgerton's career that The Hurt Locker did for Jeremy Renner. After last year's Warrior, I was sure that Edgerton would break out and be a star but the underwhelming performance of the film put the guy back on the bench. I'm also excited to see a more dramatic turn for Chris Pratt who I love in everything. Can he do more than just make us laugh? He showed some acting chops in Moneyball

Here's the trailer. Let me know what you think. Could it be a Best Picture contender with the talent involved? What are your initial thoughts?

Could not agree with you more on Edgerton. Warrior was fantastic and he was terrific in it. This movie has the worst poster ever. I know the concept but it does not sell the movie. I do look forward to it, if it is half as good as ARGO, it will be a winner.

Glad to see more love for Edgerton. And yes, this poster is gross lol, but word of mouth shall do it. I hope.
