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."

Watch the trailer for "Unbroken" below:
