Final Zero Dark Thirty trailer

ZeroDarkThirty.jpgA new trailer for Zero Dark Thirty has arrived and is being billed as the final theatrical trailer, this means we're getting close to release date and with the film coming out top in a lot of critics awards the new trailer looks to the dramatic and the personal, once again showing but generally staying clear of all the shooting at the end.

The trailer is really good, it does present a strong story with odds and events stacked up against one person who has to convince everyone else that what they believe is right and that this is the best shot they have at getting Osama Bin Laden.

Zero Dark Thirty is gaining a lot of positive press and this new trailer seems to be doing the job well. I've said it before but I really do like the way the focus is on the characters behind the hunt and making it very personal, not only will that make for a good film but an action retelling of the story wouldn't work very well nor would it be so widely accepted.

Will this be one of the big award winners? Up against Lincoln I'm not so sure.

Here's the new trailer for Zero Dark Thirty from Yahoo Movies through Deadline, I don't need to see any more as I'm sold.

I've noticed a few comments about the portrayal of torture in the film, something which you might expect considering leads to that Pakistani compound came out of the Guantanamo Bay detainment camp, a nice safe way of saying that various methods of physical and mental interrogation, which some would say are close to torture, were used to extract the information from those imprisoned there. I wonder how this will be shown and how much interrogation they will reveal was required to get the information?

Of course the film is a reflection of actual events but it also can't turn people off too early in the film, making them feel that the methods of gaining the information might have been too much. It will be interesting to see if the film does tone these events down to balance out the story, or at least slide over them a little.
