First look: Zero Dark Thirty's hunt for Osama (+trailer)

Oscar winner Kathryn Bigelow's controversial new movie about the hunt for Osama Bin Laden now has a title and a trailer.

Zero Dark Thirty, starring Joel Edgerton and Jessica Chastian, is set to hit cinemas in January next year and the brief teaser trailer was released online today.

The Hurt Locker director started work on the project at the beginning of last year, but bin Laden's real-life assassination at the hands of US Navy Seals prompted her to rethink the film.

The film chronicles the decade-long search for the bin Laden.
