Trailer Watch: Second The Hurt Locker trailer

I haven’t had my eye out for this one, so this is actually the second trailer for Point Break director Kathryn Bigelow’s The Hurt Locker, but damn does it look good. It’s what looks like an intense Iraq War action-drama about three members of the Army’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) squad. It was based on “the first-hand observations of journalist and screenwriter Mark Boal, who was embedded with a special bomb unit in Iraq,” which undoubtedly lends the trailer some of its realism.

The Hurt Locker stars Jeremy Renner, Anthony Mackie, and Brian Geraghty, and it explodes onto the silver screen on June 26, in limited release. If you live in Brazil, though, it went straight to DVD and came out today (4/15). You can see the first trailer over at Apple.
