(CBS News) A new trailer has been released for "Zero Dark Thirty," the drama about the Navy SEAL Team 6's hunt for Osama bin Laden, which ended when he was killed on May 2, 2011.

The film, from Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow ("The Hurt Locker") and screenwriter Mark Boal, stars Jessica Chastain, Joel Edgarton, Chris Pratt and Kyle Chandler.

Pictures: Kathryn Bigelow

The trailer, which clocks in at just over a minute long, gives glimpses of those searching for bin Laden and makes heavy use of the black bars used to redact classified information in documents.

"Zero Dark Thirty" is scheduled to be released in theaters on Dec. 19.
