There’s really not a lot of actual footage or dialogue in this teaser trailer for director Kathryn Bigelow and writer Mark Boal’s follow-up to their Best Picture Academy Award-winning The Hurt Locker — instead what we have here is suggestive, and very much style over content. The film about the hunt for Osama Bin Laden — which comes out on December 19 — is not set to play fall fests and is still in postproduction, and it seems from this teaser that Columbia Pictures wants to keep as much of the material under wraps as possible, at least for now. That’s all very well, but in my opinion no trailer is better than something that just feels like filler.
