Just the other day Devin pondered if Steven Spielberg’s hurried production Munich would make its intended release date of December 23rd (not to mention get completed in time for various award contention), but the date emblazoned on the official site assures us that’s when we’re gonna get it.

The trailer certainly seems like one for a complete film, and Spielberg has kept things gritty and grim — it’s even conceivable that he won’t tack on a clumsy feel-good ending for a change. The long-planned and often-delayed film follows the terrorist kidnapping of Israeli Olympians at the 1972 Munich Olympics, and the subsequent vengeance sought by Eric Bana, future-007 Daniel Craig and a handful of others in dated wardrobe and hairstyles.
