For her second directorial feature after In the Land of Blood and Honey, Angelina Jolie could not have picked a more incredible story with Unbroken.
The film’s first trailer has premiered and what’s not to be compelled by with the true story of Olympic and war hero Louis Zamperini?
You could tell from those first Unbroken set photos, that this was a story close to Jolie’s heart and would go down, for her, as one of her great movie moments of her career.
The trailer premiered last night during the Olympics, appropriately enough, and shows how this story is even vaster than Olympic triumph.
Zamperini was also a fighter pilot in World War II. After a near-fatal crash, he would survive in a raft for 47 days, only to be rescued… by the Japanese. He would then spend what seemed like an eternity in a Japanese prisoner of war camp.
Unbroken lands in theaters December 25, and is the latest in a series of movie milestones for Jolie.
