We all know the outcome, but what about the story? With Zero Dark Thirty, director Kathryn Bigelow and writer Mark Boal are attempting to effectively dissect the hunt for Osama bin Laden while still keeping up the tension. After some veiled trailers, we’ve now got our first clip from the film, which features a heated exchange between Jessica Chastain (as the woman who spearheaded the investigation) and Kyle Chandler as the inside opposition, who isn’t interested in her personal mission. Check out the clip below, showcasing the acting, as well as a handful of new stills (via The Playlist).
Zero Dark Thirty opens on January 11th after a limited December 19th bow.
