Sadly, Louis Zamperini, the real-life subject of Angelina Jolie's sophomore directing effort Unbroken, based on Laura Hillenbrand's novel of the same name, recently passed way. But he will be honored this Christmas with the release of the film following his incredible survival on a life raft for 47 days after a plane crash left him stranded in the middle of World War II, and then captured by the Japanese Navy. We saw the first promo for this film back during the winter Olympics, and it seems Universal has a big Oscar contender on their hands by the looks of this trailer, and star Jack O'Connell is going to be a hot commodity. Watch!

Here's the full trailer for Angelina Jolie's Unbroken, originally from Apple:

Angelina Jolie (who last directed In the Land of Blood and Honey) directs Unbroken as her sophomore filmmaking effort, also producing the film which has a script from William Nicholson (Les Misérables) and Richard LaGravenese (Behind the Candelabra), later rewritten by Joel and Ethan Coen and based on Laura Hillenbrand's best-selling novel. The will to push through any obstacle, the drive to not give into defeat. The epic drama that follows the incredible life of Olympian and war hero Louis Zamperini (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. Domhnall Gleeson (About Time) also stars. Universal will release Jolie's Unbroken starting on December 25th, 2014, Christmas Day, this year.

    Roger Deakins has it looking like a heavyweight contender, not a fan of the dialogue in the trailer, almost trying too hard for them feels. Can see a lot of reviews scoring in the region of 6 - 6.5/10
    • I agree. It looks solid. But the sound bites they pulled for the trailer are a bit over the top for sure. Hopefully the rest of the movie is a little more down to earth dialogue wise and not so grandiose.

    This looks like a "MUST" see, the book was amazing...I can see Academy Awards for this movie even from just watching this trailer.
