On Thursday, July 10, trailer of Angelina Jolie’s upcoming movie, Unbroken, was released. This movie is interesting as it is inspired from a true story.
Like Laura Hillenbrand’s New York Times’, the bestselling book, the latest directorial project of Angelina is based on late Louise Zamperini’s tolerations and hardship. She has passed away last Thursday, July 3, at the age of 97.
Jack O’Connell, the British actor is portraying the role of Zamperini, the Olympian runner in 1930. He went to join the U.S. Army Air Forces during the World War II. His plane was shot down during the war over the Pacific. He survived for about 47 days on a life raft. After that, he was found alive by the Japanese and imprisoned for two years. He suffered brutality and endured torture over there.
“If I can take it, I can make it,” O’Connell said in the preview. In an interview about the movie, Brad Pitt’s fiancée said, the film is a “very personal” endeavor for her. She also says that she feels “such a huge responsibility to get it right.” Jolie added, “because I love Louis”, and that is why we can realize that the actress has a personal touch with the character of the movie.
Jolie, 39, said it was really tough to work on this movie. She had worked closely with Zamperini, who was her L.A. neighbor, and both of them sat down with Tom Brokaw for a show segment for Today in Febraury 2014. In this interview only, Jolie confessed that she has worked hardest for it. Hopefully, Jolie’s fans will definitely like Unbroken. The movie will hit the theaters on December 25, 2014. Not to forget to watch the film and for now watch its trailer. You will definitely like it for sure.
