Universal Pictures Unveils the ‘Unbroken’ Film Trailer

Universal Pictures has unveiled the trailer for the Unbroken film adaptation. The video embedded above offers glimpses of actor Jack O’Connell in the lead role of Louis Zamperini.

Academy Award-winning actress Angelina Jolie helmed this project as director. The screenwriting team includes William Nicholson, Richard LaGravenese, Joel and Ethan Coen. This movie will hit the silver screen on December 25, 2014.

Here’s more from Vanity Fair: “While some Olympic promotional tie-ins might be a bit confusing (world class athletes and McNuggets??), the connection between Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken and the 2014 Sochi Games is as solid as Evgeni Plushenko’s right thigh. If you’re one of the very few people who didn’t read Laura Hillenbrand’s (Seabiscuit: An American Legend) runaway best-seller Unbroken, it tells the true story of an Olympic athlete, Louis ‘Louie’ Zamperini, who, along with two fellow crewmen, survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII.” Follow this link to read an excerpt from Hillenbrand’s book.
