Zero Dark Thirty is the much talked about dramatisation of the hunt for, and killing of, Osama Bin Laden.
Directed by Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker, Point Break) the film has courted controversy for both its frank depiction of torture and the filmmakers' alleged access to classified information.
After scoring a number of awards and Oscar nominations, Zero Dark Thirty is in New Zealand cinemas now.
Also new in cinemas this week is Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, a new take on the classic fairytale which stars Jeremy Renner, who also featured in Bigelow’s Hurt Locker.
