“Zero Dark Thirty” 12/19/2012

Kathryn Bigelow is at the tail-end of her most compelling project to date, Zero Dark Thirty. The film chronicles Seal Team Six‘s mission to “capture and/or kill” UBL. Bigelow and staff were given unprecedented access to Classified information, and, the Seal team that had boots on the ground. This access caused a controversy in the intelligence community, known for tight lips.

Bigelow is best known for heart-pounding action sequences and incredible visuals. Her body of work includes:

Zero Dark Thirty caused a controversy in late 2011 when the level of access Bigelow acquired was revealed.  It was even reported in the press that she had unprecedented access to a few of the Seal team members from Seal Team Six.

Bigelow responded, “Our upcoming film project about the decade-long pursuit of bin Laden has been in the works for many years and integrates the collective efforts of three administrations, including those of Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama, as well as the cooperative strategies and implementation by the Department of Defense and the CIA.

Indeed, the dangerous work of finding the world’s most wanted man was carried out by individuals in the military and intelligence communities who put their lives at risk for the greater good without regard for political affiliation. This was an American triumph, both heroic and non-partisan, and there is no basis to suggest that our film will represent this enormous victory otherwise.” Huffington Post

The film was initially scheduled to be released in October 2012. However, political pundits argued the release would have been attempt at propoganda for President Obama’s re-election.  Hence, the 12/19/2012 release date.
