Blockbuster, Oscar bait or something else? Oscar bait
Diretor Kathryn Bigelow won an Oscar for her last film, the Iraq war piece "The Hurt Locker," and she's returning to the battlefield for an account of the mission to find and take out Osama bin Laden. With a cast that includes James Gandolfini, Kyle Chandler, Taylor Kinney, Jessica Chastain, Chris Pratt and Mark Strong and the incredible source material, it promises to be an intense movie-watching experience.
