Multivision to release The Hurt Locker on 9 April

MUMBAI: Multivision Multimedia (India) Pvt. Ltd. will release The Hurt Locker on 9 April.


The film, the winner of six Oscars and an equal amount of BAFTA awards, stars Jeremy Renner (Dahmer, The Assassination of Jesse James), Anthony Mackie (Half Nelson, We Are Marshall) and Brian Geraghty (We Are Marshall, Jarhead) with cameo appearances by Ralph Fiennes (The Reader), David Morse (John Adams), Evangeline Lilly (Lost) and Guy Pearce (Memento).


Produced by Kathryn Bigelow, Mark Boal, Nicolas Chartier and Greg Shapiro and directed by Kathryn Bigelow, The Hurt Locker is an intense interpretation of elite soldiers who have one of the most dangerous jobs in the world: disarming bombs in the heat of combat.


The film is based on first-hand observation by journalist and screenwriter Mark Boal who was stationed on assignment with a special bomb unit in Iraq. The film couples grippingly realistic action with intimate human drama to portray soldier psychology in a high-risk profession where men volunteer to face deadly odds.


Avers Oscar director Kathryn Bigelow, "I hope I‘m the first of many, and of course, I‘d love to just think of myself as a filmmaker. And I long for the day when that modifier can be a moot point. Fear has a bad reputation, but I think that‘s ill-deserved. Fear is clarifying. It forces you to put important things first and discount the trivial.


"When Mark Boal came back from a reporting trip to Iraq, he told me stories about men in the Army who disarm bombs in the heat of combat - obviously, an elite job with a high mortality rate. When he mentioned that they are extremely vulnerable and use little more than a pair of pliers to disarm a bomb that can kill for 300 meters, I was shocked. When I learned that these men volunteer for this dangerous work, and often grow so fond of it that they can imagine doing nothing else, I knew I had found my next film."


With a visual and emotional intensity that makes audiences feel like they have been transported to Iraq‘s dizzying, 24-hour turmoil, The Hurt Locker is both a gripping portrayal of real-life sacrifice and heroism and a layered probing study of the soul-numbing rigors and potent allure of the modern battlefield.

Judwa remake has an advantage over Chef

Judwaa 2 hopes to entertain

*Judwaa 2 came after a long gap that was filled by mediocre and non-entertaining films. There were no films in the last few months which could draw out the families from home to watch a film. Two weeks before Diwali was not the right time to release a film but, to counter that, there was also a...
