With most movie marketing attempting to drill a film’s title deep into your brain with whatever flashy technique it can, one has to hand it to Sony Pictures and their handling of Kathryn Bigelow‘s The Hurt Locker follow-up, thus far. By the looks of it, with the evocative title of Zero Dark Thirty, the film surrounding the Navy SEAL Team 6 that hunted down Osama bin Laden is going for secrecy rather than candidness. Following a teaser trailer that didn’t tell us much of anything, but still managed to pique some interest, we’ve got a teaser poster that does the exact same.
Using the same scrawled-out look, the only thing given is a URL and, if you squint hard enough, the title and release month. Like the cover of whatever confidential documents these filmmakers reportedly got their hands on, I only hope they continue with this method, because we can only imagine how much discussion just the film with bring regardless of marketing. Starring Joel Edgerton, Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Édgar Ramírez, Mark Strong, Nash Edgerton, Kyle Chandler, Jennifer Ehle, Harold Perrineau, Frank Grillo and Mark Duplass, check it out below along with the trailer if you missed it.
