The movie is called Zero Dark Thirty, and it was originally slated to be released in October—just in time for the presidential election. But now the word is that it won’t hit theaters until December. Here’s a description of the film from Entertainment Weekly:
Zero Dark Thirty will be an unusual film in that the climax of the story is already widely known and it’s the set-up that remains mysterious. Bin Laden was killed on May 2, 2011 by the U.S. Navy’s elite SEAL Team Six, but what remains largely unknown is the true backstory behind the raid, and how intelligence agencies and the military connected the dots that eventually brought them to that compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
Kathryn Bigelow—who won an Oscar for The Hurt Locker—directs this movie and claims that it is not a political statement. You can read an interview with her and her screenwriter here.
