Out of all the Oscar season films, Angelina Jolie’s ‘Unbroken‘ is probably the one you haven’t heard much about. The film, which is directed by Angelina Jolie, follows the extraordinary life of WWII hero and Olympian Louis “Louie” Zamperini. The first Unbroken trailer released focused more on Zamperini’s formative years; however, this new trailer concentrates more on the war and its aftermath.
The experts believe this film is an early frontrunner for the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar. The film was adapted from the great nonfiction book written by Laura Hillenbrand. It will have some tough competition with Gone Girl, The Imitation Games and Inherent Vice.
Unbroken stars Jack O’Connell, Garret Hedlund, Domhnall Gleeson and Finn Wittrock. It will open in a theater near you Christmas Day. Maybe you can ask Grandma to skip the socks this year and just buy you a ticket to see this instead.
Check out the trailer and official synopsis down below…
“Academy Award® winner Angelina Jolie directs and produces Unbroken, an epic drama that follows the incredible life of Olympian and war hero Louis “Louie” Zamperini (Jack O’Connell) who, along with two other crewmen, survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII—only to be caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp. Adapted from Laura Hillenbrand’s (“Seabiscuit: An American Legend”) enormously popular book, Unbroken brings to the big screen Zamperini’s unbelievable and inspiring true story about the resilient power of the human spirit.”
