Zero Dark Thirty Blu-ray (Pre-order Up)

Posted January 26, 2013 04:51 PM by Webmaster

Sony PicturesSony Pictures Home Entertainment has revealed that it is planning to bring to Blu-ray Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty (2012), starring Jessica Chastain, Joel Edgerton and Chris Pratt. The preliminary release date set by the studio is March 19th.

Kathryn Bigelow directs this Academy Award-nominated military action thriller about the mission by American special operations forces to capture or kill al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. Shining a light on the secretive processes behind the world's greatest manhunt, the film details the work done by the intelligence team responsible for finally tracking down bin Laden, graphically documenting the unfolding ten-year intelligence hunt through the eyes of CIA analyst Maya (Chastain), whose initial minor role assumes ever-greater importance as a crack US Navy Seal team readies itself for its most important mission ever. Chastain won a Golden Globe Award for her role in the Best Performance By an Actress in a Motion Picture - Drama category.

Exact technical specs and supplemental features to be included with this upcoming release are yet to be officially detailed.

Literally JUST got home from watching this! Was really good. Had a much noticeable slow pacing, but not in a bad way; felt intentional, because the movie spans through 2003-2011, and it's almost meant to make you feel like you're right there with protagonists feeling the anticipation and need to capture Bin Laden. Absolute great acting from every single character, especially Chastain.

I looked up 'useless commentary' in my phrase book today and saw the last three comments.
1) do you guys walk into every based on a true story movie and call BS?
2) is any film about war instantly catogorized as propaganda? Even when a film as critical to US foreign policy as this film is (depicting torture doesn't mean you endorse torture). You people go on record as to never even seeing the film yet call it propaganda! It's insane. How does this group think happen?
3) see the damn movie! Bigalow and Boal are a powerful filmmaking duo that don't suger coat OR spoon feed their thoughts and views on what we have been up to these past 10 years. The amount of research and development that was put into these events to TRY and make the story as accurate as possible in light of what they had learned from their sources at the time is unparalleled. How many filmmaker do you know who have been investigated by the senate based on what they may or may not have found out?

I'm a bleeding heart liberal and believe a great movie is, regardless of politics, A great movie. If you're a real fan of cinema you'll stop listening to the idiotic soundbites and watch the damn film with your brain turned on and your cinematic heart inspired. This is cinema. Boal and Bigalow created an American masterpiece.

I loved The Hurt Locker, but I just couldn't get into this. I respect how well-made it is, but I just wasn't a huge fan. Would love to give the Blu-ray a spin, though, if Bigelow and Boal do a commentary for it.

Even though I shouldn't waste my time with a response because you still won't see it with a clear mind and are relying on what family and friends have said (who in my everyday life I wouldn't call reliable film watchers)...

You do know Colbert is satire, right? Whatever he said was probably a poke in the face at the right-wingers who love to take the wrong side of things.

Was Il Divo Italy's propaganda white wash over their own governement's actions?
Was Battleship Potemkin ultimately the film Stalinist Russia seeked out to make to show its superiority as a nation? I think Eisenstien would tell you 'no.'

ZD30 is a raw, angry, violent, engaging breakdown of a 10 year process that yielded much bloodshed and 1 final result that begs us to ask ourselves: was it worth it? What next?

How many films made about war can you say even get that close to that sort of topicality and pathos?

Then again, you haven't seen this so I guess that answer will be few and far between. Maybe ask your parents. Or friends. I'm sure they'll have a not-so-subtle answer.

I don't like how movies are available for pre-order so early. For some reason it diminishes the "magic of the movies" for me somehow.

Great MOVIE. Hence, the caps lock on movie. But having been deployed in that area of the world on more than one occasion, I was disappointed in the Maya character. Chastain's performance is brilliant, but for Bigelow's noted attention to details, she either makes some very huge errors or she is committed to insulting the intelligence of few to get certain other aspects of the film over, along with the Maya character as some sort super heroine.

Subject matter is definitely important. But I was just not that entertained by it.
It did have some intense moments, but it didn't keep the interest for me. Compared to another based on real-life event "Argo" which I was glued to the screen(except at the end), this movie just didn't do it for me. More similar with "Syriana" = Important subject matter, but I was somewhat bored by it.
As for the Director, I did like the "Hurt Locker", but not much for this movie.

@ EVERYONE LIES

Every film -- yes, EVERY film -- is a propaganda film:

Dictionary.com defines "propaganda" as, "Information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to help or harm a person, group, movement, institution, nation, etc."

Please, for the love of God / Science: pull your head out of your anus.

State sanctioned? How so? Have you ever heard of the First Amendment?! EVERY film is "state sanctioned" if you (really want to) think about it.

And dangerous...? Films are only as dangerous as the masses allow them to be. Is "Natural Born Killers" dangerous...?

Use your head, man. Your blu-ray.com handle speaks more truth than you really know: "Everyone lies." (I agree with you there.)

Don't make a judgment until you've SEEN the f---in' thing! This isn't one of Adam Sandler's movies for crying out loud! Give this flick at least one viewing before you write it off as "propaganda" or something other. OPEN your minds, you twits!

I'm not a "Hurt Locker" fan-boy by any stretch...but "Zero Dark Thirty" kept me FLOORED.

Sony release so many technically perfect BDs of perfectly awful films, looking forward to this as a rare example of a film worthy of the Sony treatment.

@ Boothill Gunslinger - are you sure about that "vast majority" liking Sandler? 51% is a very slim majority, so "vast" must be WAY above that, and the current US population of which you need to calculate that higher percentage is c. 315,000,000......

Can't wait for a UK release Film was much better than expected given that it's one of those awkward films where you go into it "knowing" what the ending is, and the film becomes about getting to that ending.

Inaccuracies ? I suspect that only a very small number of people actually know everything that led to the real life events so lets not pretend any of us "know" everything - it's pretty clear all along that the film is based on real life and was never held up by anyone but its detractors as a 100% documentary.

Sony always do a great job so this should be cracking

Kathryn Bigelow has figured out that magical formula…WAR! She knows America has a hard on for war and if she keeps making movies about war, she knows every dumb gun wielding, constitution spewing American will rush out to see it. You guys cannot get enough of your war movies! IT”S PATHETIC!!!!

So go ahead a rate this down and tell me to go back to my parent’s basement, and that I’m not smart as all you internet folk, etc.

@ Cenobite:

Kathryn Bigelow's "magical formula" is more than just "WAR" (as you put it).

Her latest film is a showcase for well-written dialog...believable (and intricate / three-dimensional) performances...sharp (and not-too-shaky) photography...exciting (but not over-bearing) music...and clear, concise editing. All in all: her latest is a very well-made, well-rounded film.

Yes, "The Hurt Locker" and "Zero Dark Thirty" ARE war films...but regardless of a movie-goer's politics -- whether or not he or she wields a gun or spews the Constitution -- "Zero Dark Thirty" is an excellent film. Maybe you don't agree with the message...but you can't deny that the film is better than many of the films released last year.

What makes a good movie...? The DRAMA! The EXCITEMENT! The CONFLICT! "Zero Dark Thirty" delivers these in spades. War picture or not...this film is a good one. (And I think it's BETTER than "The Hurt Locker.")

"Saving Private Ryan"? "Full Metal Jacket"? "Platoon"? These are war films -- and they're some of the finest films we've seen.

Oh, and what's wrong with the Constitution -- the supreme law of the land? Have you ever heard of Rule of Law? The Constitution is pretty darn important, my friend. Don't negate its importance on this -- or ANY other -- online forum. This forum is the result of our First Amendment.

@ Cenobite:

I reckon you're a "Hellraiser" fan...am I right? Well...I am, too...so I must ask, what's more horrible than war? The "Hellraiser" films are quite horrible (and rightly so; they're HORROR films)...but in one sense...aren't war films ALSO horror films...? Think about that.

"Full Metal Jacket" certainly depicts the horror of boot camp, the horror of Vietnam, and the horror of a sniper's bullets....

And I would argue that "Zero Dark Thirty" ALSO depicts the horrors of war -- and the horror of torture -- AND obsession -- and, lest we forget...the horror of governmental bureaucracy!

I don't think many people would pay to see a film about the FAILURE to get Bin Laden. Maybe some Al Jazeera lovin' Al Qaeda members would flock to see it, but most Americans would rather tongue-clean an Andy Gump.

The "Conservatives" are still trying to camouflage their intimate ties with Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein, so no, it fails to mention that.
