Don’t worry, boys, Jessica Chastain and her fiery red hair (or is that orange?) is here to get us to the finish line. Check out a new trailer for Kathryn Bigelow’s “Zero Dark Thirty”, which focuses heavily on Chastain’s character, Maya, who is based on a real character, though you’re probably not going to find out who she really is until … she quits the CIA and writes a book and it becomes a Hollywood movie. Or some such. Of course, if the real-life Maya NEVER quits the CIA to write a book and get rich, then she might possibly be as angelic and badass as Chastain portrays her in the movie. We’ll know in a few years, methinks.
Anyhoo. Here’s Chastain leading the charge to find Osama Bin Laden.
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.
“Zero Dark Thirty” also stars Joel Edgerton, Mark Strong, Scott Adkins, Jennifer Ehle, Chris Pratt, Kyle Chandler, Taylor Kinney, Harold Perrineau, Jason Clarke, Édgar Ramírez, Frank Grillo, Mark Duplass, and Stephen Dillane.
The hung begins December 19, 2012.
