KA-BLOOEY! (Or more like, KA-BOOM!) That’s what you’ll probably be seeing and hearing a lot from Kathryn Bigelow’s Iraq War-set “The Hurt Locker”, which is being sold as an action film that just happens to be set in Iraq during the war. It’s actually the smart way to go, considering how badly the recent spate of Iraq War-set films have done at the box office. Here are some new images and a new poster for the film.
Iraq. Forced to play a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse in the chaos of war, an elite Army bomb squad unit must come together in a city where everyone is a potential enemy and every object could be a deadly bomb.
Starring Jeremy Renner, Anthony Mackie, Brian Geraghty, Guy Pearce, Ralph Fiennes, David Morse, Christian Camargo, Suhail Aldabbach, and Evangeline Lilly. Kathryn Bigelow (“Point Break”) directs.
