Zero Dark Thirty gets a poster

Zero Dark Thirty , Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow’s tensely-anticipated based-on-fact thriller, has revealed a new poster.

The in-theatre banner (which debuted on Yahoo! Movies ) features an aerial shot of Osama bin Laden’s Pakistan hideout.

The stark image plays up to the fact that we’re anticipating ZDT to be far removed from your average military thriller. Expect political messages to be left at the door, as Bigelow aims for as precise a recreation of events as possible.

As with Bigelow’s awards-magnet, The Hurt Locker , this could be an unbearably tense experience.

Check out the poster in full below:

Zero Dark Thirty counts Joel Edgerton, Jessica Chastain and Chris Pratt among its ensemble castmembers. It opens in the UK on 25 January 2013.
