It has been a very good week for "Zero Dark Thirty." The film has now pushed itself to the front of the Oscar conversation by taking three prizes from the New York Film Critics Circle on Monday and another three from the National Board Of Review today, with director Kathryn Bigelow and actress Jessica Chastain looking like the ones to beat (at the moment). While many critics and industry types have already seen the film, the rest of us have to wait, so here's a few more peeks to tide you over.

Zero Dark Thirty Jessica Chastain

It has been a very good week for "Zero Dark Thirty." The film has now pushed itself to the front of the Oscar conversation by taking three prizes from the New York Film Critics Circle on Monday and another three from the National Board Of Review today, with director Kathryn Bigelow and actress Jessica Chastain looking like the ones to beat (at the moment). While many critics and industry types have already seen the film, the rest of us have to wait, so here's a few more peeks to tide you over.

What else is there to say about this picture? Yes, you know how it ends, but the drama in the film comes from the journey that spanned years and years as intelligence officials tried to track down Osama Bin Laden until they finally made their move last year. As the Bigelow and Chastain stress in the CNN interview below, the tension is in the investigation, though yes, the finale is as white knuckle as you'd expect, even if you know the outcome.

"Zero Dark Thirty" opens in limited release on December 19th and goes wide on January 11th. Watch below followed by more images. [Filmofilia]
