New Unbroken Trailer Continues to Prove Jack O’Connell Is One to Watch [Updated with New Images and Posters]

16 October 2014 9:41 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Who’s ready for a Jack O’Connell tour de force?  The guy’s already proven himself thanks to his work in Starred Up and the upcoming limited release ’71, but based on this new trailer for Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken, it looks as though he's got a lot more to offer.  The narrative is remarkable in and of itself, but O’Connell appears to bring such heart to the role of Louis Zamperini that his performance is bound to up the intensity of the situation tenfold.  Will it be enough to earn him some Oscar buzz?  There’s already some significant competition in the Best Actor category so it might be a reach, but Adam thinks the film’s got a chance at snagging a spot in the Best Picture race, and based on the quality of this new promo, I’m inclined to agree. Hit the jump to check out the latest Unbroken trailer. »

'Unbroken' is early frontrunner for Adapted Screenplay Oscar

17 September 2014 9:16 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

We recently opened our predictions for the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar, and the early favorite is "Unbroken," Angelina Jolie's upcoming drama about Olympian-turned-World War II-hero Louis Zamperini. Our experts, editors, and users all favor it to win, giving it 9/4 odds overall. -Break- Oscars Best Picture race led by 'Boyhood,' 'Unbroken,' 'Birdman,' 'Foxcatcher' (Photo Gallery) It's no wonder "Unbroken" is out front for the screenplay award; it has one of the strongest writing pedigrees of any film this season. Adapted from the nonfiction book by Laura Hillenbrand, who also wrote the source material for Oscar-nominated "Seabiscuit," it's credited to four writers, all of whom are familiar to academy voters. Joel Coen and Ethan Coen are already four-time Oscar champs, including a pair of writing wins for "Fargo" (1996) and "No Country for Old Men" ...' »

Roots Run Deep at Hollywood in Vienna, Where Randy Newman Is Being Honored

11 September 2014 2:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Vienna might be synonymous with Mozart and Strauss, but Sandra Tomek, founder and director of Hollywood in Vienna, perceives equally strong ties to such movie maestros as Max Steiner and Erich Wolfgang Korngold, who established themselves in the Austrian capital before blossoming as key pioneers of the Hollywood film score tradition.

So when Randy Newman receives the Max Steiner Award at the dual Sept. 24-25 event taking place at the city’s storied Vienna Concert Hall, with cousin and fellow film composer David Newman conducting, Tomek views the honor as both a link to the past and a celebration of the present.

Alfred Newman, David’s father, was a colleague of Max Steiner,” Tomek explains. “And also the Newman family came from Eastern Europe (Russia, to be exact). So there are a lot of ties which are really interesting.”

The award is determined by an international committee of 20 people who »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

’50 to 1′ is an unearned lap to victory

21 August 2014 1:19 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

50 to 1

Written by Faith Conroy and Jim Wilson

Directed by Jim Wilson

USA, 2014

Imagine, if you will, a horse race that starts and finishes in a blink of an eye. We see your choice winner bucking behind the starting gate. His chances of winning are slim to none, fifty to one in fact. You may not know anything about the horse, but you like the sound of his name on the program, and figure you can make some nice cash from a long shot. The gate opens and your horse bellows out the door. Immediately cut to the first bend and he is trailing behind the team. Now, immediately cut to the last and he strides to the finish line by a large margin. Victory is yours, but to what fulfillment? Sure you’re happy that your horse won, and heck, you might have made a serious winning. You probably »

Trailer: Unbroken

13 July 2014 9:02 AM, PDT | Pure Movies | See recent Pure Movies news »

Angelina Jolie directs and produces Unbroken, with the Coens on writing duty.

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.

Director Jolie began shooting some of the most dramatic and challenging scenes on Wednesday, October 16, on location far out at sea in Moreton Bay, Australia, with Zamperini (O’Connell) and his fellow airmen—Phil (Domhnall Gleeson) and Mac (Finn Wittrock)—having impossibly survived being adrift in the open Pacific for several weeks.

New Images and Trailer for Angelina Jolie’s WWII Drama Unbroken

10 July 2014 12:08 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Universal have released the first full-length trailer for Unbroken, the WWII drama directed by Angelina Jolie. Starring Jack O’Connell as the heroic Louis Zamperini (who passed away last week), it tells the story of the former Olympian and WWII bombardier whose plane crashed at sea in 1943.

After floating adrift in shark infested waters for 47 days and over 2000 miles, Zamperini – who competed in the 1936 Berlin Olympics as a distance runner – and two crew mates were caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a Pow camp where Zamperini was targeted by a sadistic overseer.

Unbroken has already been named as an early contender for “Best Picture” at next year’s Academy Awards, and it quickly becomes apparent that Jolie has had no trouble moving from in front of the camera to behind it. Unbroken is adapted from Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand. »

The 'Unbroken' Trailer Makes a Bid for All the Oscars (Video)

10 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Angelina Jolie can be currently seen on movie screens worldwide as the title character in Disney's blockbuster "Maleficent," which recently became Jolie's most successful movie ever, with a worldwide gross of $600 million (and climbing). And while she has certainly secured her dominance as a box office draw, this Christmas she will be gunning for a different kind of gold, as she enters the Oscar race as a director with the harrowing true-life drama "Unbroken," which now has a brand new trailer.

"Unbroken" was based on the best-selling nonfiction book by "Seabiscuit" author Laura Hillenbrand and concerns a former Olympic track star named Louis Zamperini (Jack O'Connell) who joins the Pacific campaign in World War II, spends nearly 50 days at sea after his airplane is shot down, and then is captured by the Japanese and spends more than two years in a Pow camp.

New 'Unbroken' Trailer and Pictures

10 July 2014 7:37 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The subject of Angelina Jolie's new film, Louis Zamperini, passed away on July 2, which, as callous as it may be, immediately caused many to wonder if it would hurt or help the film's Oscar chances. Personally I believe it just adds one more emotional layer to what sounds like a very emotional story. Universal has released some new pictures and a brand new trailer for the film, Unbroken, which is based on The New York Times bestselling book "Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption" by Laura Hillenbrand ("Seabiscuit: An American Legend"), following the incredible life story of Olympian and war hero Zamperini 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. The film currently sits atop my early Oscar »
