On the heels of the film finally screening for critics and guild groups, Universal Pictures has released a batch of Unbroken movie clips. Directed by Angelina Jolie, the film tells the true (and incredible) story of Louis Zamperini (Jack O’Connell), a former Olympian and WWII bombardier whose plane crashed at sea in 1943. Zamperini and two crewmates floated adrift for 47 days and 2000 miles, eventually finding themselves caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a POW camp where Zamperini was targeted by a sadistic overseer. The film has been highly anticipated by many for its inspiring story and incredible behind-the-scenes (and in front of camera) team, so I’m looking forward to finally checking it out.
Watch the Unbroken movie clips after the jump. The film also stars Miyavi, Domhnall Gleeson, Garrett Hedlund, Finn Wittrock, Jai Courtney, and Alex Russell. Unbroken opens in theaters on December 25th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Unbroken:
Academy Award® winner Angelina Jolie directs and produces Unbroken, an epic drama that follows the incredible life of Olympian and war hero Louis “Louie” Zamperini (Jack O’Connell) who, along with two other crewmen, survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII—only to be caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp. Adapted from Laura Hillenbrand’s (“Seabiscuit: An American Legend”) enormously popular book, Unbroken brings to the big screen Zamperini’s unbelievable and inspiring true story about the resilient power of the human spirit.
