“Zero Dark Thirty”: First Big Image

The poster for “Zero Dark Thirty,” Kathryn Bigelow‘s upcoming movie about the bin Laden raid, is online. Looks pretty spooky: a combination of a Google Maps image (not an iPhone 5 image!) with the feel of one of those 1970s paranoid thrillers like “The Parallax View.” The “Zero” poster piques my interest in seeing the film, even as I don’t think either it or the much praised “Argo” will win the Best Picture Oscar in February: after the election I suspect that Americans, not to mention Academy voters, will be sick of anything political or terror-laden.
