Zero Dark Thirty Oscar Contender?

Given the people involved with the new film Zero Dark Thirty dealing with the hunt for Osama Bin Laden, I knew this movie had a good chance at being in the running for various Oscar awards. After seeing the second trailer for Kathryn Bigelow’s film Zero Dark Thirty, I see nothing that changes my mind.

Kathryn Bigelow’s previous film The Hurt Locker  won her Best Director and Best Picture along with 4 other oscar wins for the film.  I was impressed by The Hurt Locker so I was glad to see that she had decided to do this movie.  Besides Bigelow and the topic the movie is covering, I like several of the actors in it, Jason Clarke (The Chicago Code) and Jessica Chastain (The Debt) among others.

For me at least, all of these factors make it a promising upcoming film. As you can tell, Zero Dark Thirty is one of the films I am excited for this fall/winter movie season.
