Watch: Angelina Jolie Enters the Oscar Race With Powerful Trailer for 'Unbroken'

Angelina Jolie is having one hell of a year. After seeing her latest film “Maleficent” become her highest earning project ever, today sees the release of the trailer for her sophomore directorial effort “Unbroken,” and it’s a stunner. With a Christmas Day release, Universal is clearly positioning it as an Oscar contender. If the promising trailer is anything to go by, it looks like Jolie might have a front-runner on her hands.

Based on a true story, the drama (co-scripted by the Coen Brothers) centers on Olympian runner Louis Zamperini (Jack O’Connell), who was taken prisoner by Japanese forces during World War II. Co-starring Domhnall Gleeson and Garrett Hedlund, “Unbroken” marks a huge leap for Jolie, who made her debut with the well received but smaller scaled war drama “In the Land of Blood and Honey.”

Hope it's as good as the trailer teases.

She's doing the right thing for the scope of this – assembling a good team of collaborators: Deakins, Coen Bros., Wm. Nicholson and Tim Squyres to edit.


Is it really so hard to ask actors who are playing track stars to learn a thing or two about how to run. With the lone exception of Billy Crudup's spot-on Pre impersonation in "Without Limits" they all look completely ridiculous. (I know, not what the story is about, but it is such a simple thing to fix I figured I'd rant.)


George Clooney, this is how you do it.
