The Trailer Park: “Unbroken” (Olympics Trailer)

If you’ve been watching the Winter Olympics in Sochi you may have seen the first footage of Angelina Jolie’s next directorial effort, Unbroken. The film is a biopic about a very interesting man named Louis Zamperini, a former Olympian and POW in WWII. Zamperini is still alive, and we get some interview footage of him telling his story in the TV spot. It sounds like a very heart warming tale based on Zamperini’s best selling book. Not to mention, the Coen Brothers are listed as screenwriters on the film. I’m expecting a lot out of Unbroken. Take a look below.

If you were wondering who is the cinematographer, it’s the one and only Roger Deakins. Unbroken opens in theaters on December 25, 2014.

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.

What do you think of Unbroken and the incredible story of Louis Zamperini?

    There is a reason this is coming out in December. Look for this to be one of the big ones next year. If You know the story, you know how amazing the man is. Fight On my fellow Trojan Louis Zamperini.

    Wow. Thanks for the comment. I know a little about the story. I’ve kind of tried to not get into it too much because I’m already sold on this film.

    Fascinating story; really looking forward to this one after seeing the trailer. Curious about Jolie’s work behind the camera (didn’t see her Blood and Honey) and if the Coens are writing, I’m there! Besides, Domnhall Gleeson is in this!
