<i>Zero Dark Thirty</i> Wide Release Pushed Back to Jan. 11

The wide release of Zero Dark Thirty, Kathryn Bigelow’s new film about the mission to kill Osama Bin Laden, has been pushed back to Jan. 11. It was originally scheduled to hit theaters nationwide Dec. 19. Sony has cited a particularly crowded holiday release season as a reason for the move. The film will, however, make its premiere in New York and L.A. on Dec. 19 so as to remain eligible for Academy Award consideration.

Zero Dark Thirty marks Kathryn Bigelow’s first feature film since winning the 2009 Oscar for Best Director for The Hurt Locker. Jessica Chastain, James Gandolfini, Chris Pratt, Joel Edgerton and Friday Night Lights’ Kyle Chandler are among the notable cast members.
