Take a look at the teaser for Kathryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty," the folllow-up to her Oscar-winning "The Hurt Locker." The film, written by "Locker" scribe Mark Boal, follows the Navy SEAL Team Six that tracks down and kills terrorist Osama bin Laden on May 2, 2011. Stars include Jessica Chastain, Chris Pratt, Kyle Chandler, Mark Strong, Jennifer Ehle, Mark Duplass, Joel Edgerton, Nash Edgerton and Ricky Sekhon (as bin Laden).

Here's more background on the film, for which Bigelow and Boal were able to interview top CIA officials. "Zero Dark Thirty," which may not be the final title, hits theaters December 19, after the presidential election but just in time to be front and center in the Oscar race.

Boal tells EW “There’s no political agenda in the film. Full stop. Period,” adding that “A lot of people are going to be surprised when they see the film. For example, the president is not depicted in the movie. He’s just not in the movie.” You can check out EW's complete profile of the film here. Boal says, "I hope the film will portray this story in a way that people find surprising and believable, and moving. And I do think it’s moving, emotionally. It’s not a documentary. It’s a movie.”
