When Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal’s film about the hunt for Osama Bin Laden, “Zero Dark Thirty,” was first announced, there was much teeth-gnashing about whether the movie would come out prior to the election, and give a boost to President Obama. Now, not only is the film coming out after Election Day, but it’ll barely make Inauguration Day.

Sony announced Thursday that the film, originally scheduled to open Dec. 19, will open in New York and Los Angeles that day, with its national release will rolling out gradually between that date and wide release date Jan. 11.

Director Bigelow and screenwriter Boal’s last collaboration, “The Hurt Locker,” won Oscars for Best Picture and Best Director.
