With the first screenings kicking off to a positive response this week, one can confirm that Kathryn Bigelow‘s hunt for Osama bin Laden film Zero Dark Thirty is one to put firmly on your must-watch list this season and while the production and Sony’s campaign has been tight-lipped, we’re now got more insight into the film thanks to two specials from ABC.
