"The light will always follow darkness."
The trailer I've been waiting for is finally here, and it looks phenomenal. From sophomore director Angelina Jolie comes Unbroken, an incredible true story based on the late Louis Zamperini's life, who recently passed away. I fell in love with the book written by Laura Hillenbrand of the same name, and was thrilled to hear they were adapting this inspirational, World War II story into a motion picture. This Christmas we will get to see Louis' incredible survival story of how he lived on a raft for 47 days after his plane crashed, which left him stranded in the middle of the war zone, only to be captured by the Japanese Navy. I can't wait to see it! Take a look...
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 writtenby 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 (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. Universal will release Unbroken on Christmas Day, this year.
Are you as excited to see this as I am?
