Universal has released a first look, Olympics trailer at Angelina Jolie's Unbroken, the story of Louis Zamperini and his journey from Olympian to World War II prisoner of war. Narrated by Tom Brokaw this Olympics preview introduces Zamperini's story using news reel footage alongside footage from the upcoming film, based on Laura Hillenbrand's book "Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption". If you don't know the story, this is a great place to start and reason enough to look forward to the film. amz asin="B003WUYPPG" size="small"The one thing I find interesting is the cinematography, which was handled under the careful eye of Roger Deakins. The film looks a lot like something Tom Stern or another one of Clint Eastwood's DPs might have shot.

I don't know where to begin with Jason Reitman's Labor Day. Adapted from the novel by Joyce Maynard, you could have told me it was a Nicholas Sparks adaptation, directed by Lasse Hallstrom and I wouldn't have second guessed the statement.

To begin, Labor Day has something of an identity crisis as it's unsure which character it wants to focus on. The voice over that introduces the film is read by Tobey Maguire playing an older Henry Wheeler, the young 13-year-old (Gattlin Griffith) seen throughout the entirety of the film, and son to Adele (Kate Winslet), a woman that has retreated within herself forcing Henry to be the man of the house. Adele was left by »

Meryl Streep breaks Oscar record: Oscar 2014 nominations (photo: Meryl Streep in ‘August: Osage County’) The 2014 Oscar nominations were announced earlier today at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.
