Get inspired by the trailer for the Angelina Jolie-directed Unbroken

Jul. 10, 2014by: Sean Wist

Angelina Jolie's directorial debut, IN THE LAND OF BLOOD AND HONEY, was not met with many kind words. That's not stopping her from stepping up to the plate with her sophomore effort, UNBROKEN, which tells the real-life story of Olympian-turned-POW, Louis Zamperini.

Check out the trailer-iest trailer music here:

Crafting a film on a real hero is a hard task as it becomes all-too-easy to glamorize certain aspects of their life. The trailer screaming "Oscar bait" certainly doesn't help, but I can't really hold Jolie accountable for the marketing department. Given that Jolie sought out re-writes from the Coen brothers actually puts my mind at ease. I'm curious to see how tihs one will play out.

UNBROKEN will go for the gold on December 25, 2014.

This may be a first... I'm in total agreement the writer of an article on this site. The studio really dropped the ball with this trailer. They took an incredible true story about an incredible person and made it look like Michael Bay presents Pearl Harbor 2. Let me be clear, I'm talking about the trailer, which was probably outsourced to a media firm that makes movie trailers and not the movie itself (which I obviously haven't seen).

Really??? No mention that Zamperini JUST passed away? I'm sure that is playing a part in the timing of this release, but I figure the writer doesn't know. Anyway, this is an insanely incredible book. It actually reads like a movie, and becomes pretty fast-paced and thrilling. I knew it had the potential to be a great Oscar winning movie, and I immediately thought Spielberg would absolutely nail this - even more so if he made it an HBO "show" like band of brothers. This book could EASILY be

This book could EASILY be made into 4 1 hour episodes (MAAAAAAYBE even 6 or 8), and it's a concern I have that awesome stuff will be left out. I didn't see Jolie's first film, but I'm hoping she knocks this out bc this story is really amazing
