Zero Dark Thirty, and the Production Companies Involved

     Zero Dark Thirty, the 2012 American historical drama film about the manhunt that led to the eventual murder of Osama Bin Laden, was only involved with one production company, Annapurna Pictures.

The film, although written by Mark Boal and directed by Kathryn Bigelow, was financed by the production company, Annapurna Pictures, founded by Megan Ellison, one of the producers of Zero Dark Thirty. The relatively new Los Angeles based production company was created by Ellison because she believed that Hollywood had abandoned “sophisticated dramas, period pieces and the visions of auteur,” and she decided to create Annapurna Pictures to invest in original, daring movies. Her decision paid off, because it led the company to release Paul Thomas Anderson’s 2012 drama film, The Master, which has gotten mostly nothing but positive reviews, and then, of course, Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty.
