Protect The Homeland Or Go After Bin Laden: Blistering First Clip From 'Zero Dark Thirty'

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist November 28, 2012 at 12:55PM

The hunt for Osama Bin Laden might seem like a straightforward operation on paper, but juggling politics, changes in chains of command and a focus from international threats to homegrown efforts turned that job into a decade-long task. But as Kathryn Bigelow's based-on-fact account "Zero Dark Thirty" will reveal, there was one woman at the center who always had her eye on the endgame.

Zero Dark Thirty Jessica Chastain

The hunt for Osama Bin Laden might seem like a straightforward operation on paper, but juggling politics, changes in chains of command and a focus from international threats to homegrown efforts turned that job into a decade-long task. But as Kathryn Bigelow's based-on-fact account "Zero Dark Thirty" will reveal, there was one woman at the center who always had her eye on the endgame.

The first blistering clip from the film has dropped and in it, we see Jessica Chastain dress down Kyle Chandler when he tries to reorient her priorities. The scene is taking place just after the 2010 attempted car bombing of Times Square in New York City that reminded everyone that al-Qaeda hadn't given up on their attacks on the country.

It's a pretty ferocious scene, and in case you missed it, there's even more to dig into with the "Nightline" story on the movie that aired earlier this week. "Zero Dark Thirty" opens in limited release on December 16th and goes wide on January 11th.
