One morning the entire world woke up to find that the most wanted terrorist of the world, Osama Bin Laden, has been killed by an US air strike in his Abbottabad hide out. At that point, the writer director duo of Hurt Locker, Mark Boal and Kathryn Bigelow, were already planning to make a film on the hunt for Osama. However, they abandoned their existing script and came up with a story of the greatest manhunt in the History — Zero Dark Thirty.
The trailer of this movie is out and it begins with the quintessential satellite images of where it all began —that fateful day that is forever etched into the minds of not just every American citizen, but the rest of the world. 11 September 2001, the day the twin towers fell.
The trailer of this docudrama features a lot of black lines (Generally found on confidential documents ) and also shows the CIA’s near impossible task in trying to locate Bin Laden, whose identity is so secretive that it is like almost trying to find a ghost. That is why perhaps all you see of Osama in the trailer, is a white shadow and men inquiring ‘When was the last time you saw Bin Laden?’
The movie chronicles the hunt till the last raid in Osama’s hide out at Abbottabad, Pakistan.
The film was initially slated for an October release but it has now been shifted to December, so that it doesn’t affect the Presidential election in any way.
