The Hurt Locker Movie Poster

“Guess the only Iraq War film to hit it big” is a game show that never ends, and the current front runner is The Hurt Locker from director Kathryn Bigelow. Jeff Wells has a pretty cool leaked one-sheet for the wartime thriller, opening 2009, and he compares the movie—which has been widely praised at festivals like TIFF for its intense action sequences and dutiful hard knock vibe—to James Cameron’s Aliens.

As hinted at by the poster’s dirty bomb and tagline, the plot follows one of the army’s Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) units as it “plays a dangerous game of cat and mouse in the chaos of war in a city where everyone is a potential enemy.” We’re pretty psyched to see Bigelow make such a lauded comeback—with Point Break and Near Dark highlighting her resume, we’ve been waiting for years. If she goes down in the books for making the first box office hit about the occupation of Iraq on the ground level, even better.
