7 December 2014 10:54 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

On the heels of the film finally screening for critics and guild groups, Universal Pictures has released a batch of Unbroken movie clips.  Directed by Angelina Jolie, the film tells the true (and incredible) story of Louis Zamperini (Jack O’Connell), a former Olympian and WWII bombardier whose plane crashed at sea in 1943.  Zamperini and two crewmates floated adrift for 47 days and 2000 miles, eventually finding themselves caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a Pow camp where Zamperini was targeted by a sadistic overseer.  The film has been highly anticipated by many for its inspiring story and incredible behind-the-scenes (and in front of camera) team, so I’m looking forward to finally checking it out. Watch the Unbroken movie clips after the jump.  The film also stars MiyaviDomhnall GleesonGarrett HedlundFinn WittrockJai Courtney, and Alex Russell.  Unbroken opens in theaters on December 25th.

Angelina Jolie’s ‘Unbroken’ Draws Gasps at Premiere in Australia

17 November 2014 5:45 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Promising “a night of inspiration,” dedicated “in loving memory” to pic’s subject Louis Zamperini, director-producer Angelina Jolie presented the world premiere of her second film as director, Universal’s “Unbroken,” to a packed State Theatre in downtown Sydney, Australia, Monday evening local time.

Reaction to the often-intense film was largely positive, with the black-tie audience gasping audibly at one particularly shocking maritime moment and the unrelenting visceral wartime brutality that punctuates Zamperini’s tale of survival.

Warm applause at the end of the film drowned out the opening bars of the Coldplay tune penned just for the closing credits.

Additional inspiration was provided by the presence and exposure provided to various charities, local war heroes and those who have overcome adversity.

Based on the international bestseller by Laura Hillenbrand (“Seabiscuit”), the 137-minute film is among the last high-profile Academy Award-eligible films to open Stateside (it’s slated for Dec. »

Analysis: Movies set during the second World War can be a tough sell: so far this year, The Monuments Men fell short of $80 million, while Fury will likely wind up below that mark as well. Both of those movies had considerable on-screen starpower, which is something that Unbroken lacks.Unbroken does, however, have some pretty serious credentials behind the camera.
