The latest Unbroken trailer has arrived and if Angelina Jolie is not nominated for a Best Director Oscar, simply from the below teaser alone, we think it is a crime. The story has Oscar written all over it, that much is for sure.
Unbroken follows the incredible life story of Olympic gold medalist and war hero Louis “Louie” Zamperini, played by Jack O’Connell.
He made his nation proud as an Olympian and then joined the war effort when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. It was during this period that he was challenged yet again.
Zamperini’s plane was shot down over the Pacific where he and two other crewman would drift for 47 days and miraculously survive. If that wasn’t enough, they were rescued, sure, but it was by the Japanese. They were then sent to a POW camp where they would be subject to torture, starvation, disease and every other emotional weapon their captors threw at them.
Look for Unbroken in theaters December 25.
Universal also released two new posters for Unbroken. Check them out in our slideshow below and click through to see all the stunning stills from Jolie’s latest directorial effort.
