Last Friday morning I posted a shot of the new Zero Dark Thirty one-sheet, but later that day a Sony rep asked me to take it down because of an exclusivity deal they have with Yahoo! Movies. Sure, I said, but if you don’t want people to discuss a new poster don’t hang it in the lobby of the Jimmy Stewart building.
Zero Dark Thirty is the second end-of-the-year film that explains how a possibly dodgy secret operation involving the hoodwinking of Islamic militants was pulled off. The first film in this vein is/was Argo. We had a goal, we put one over, they didn’t see us coming and wham!…we nailed it.
