Universal Pictures have this week released the teaser trailer for their upcoming period drama film Unbroken. Directed by Maleficent's Angelina Jolie, this sure-to-be emotionally charged World War Two piece follows a real-life athlete-turned-hero named Louis Zamperini and will star About Time's Domhnall Gleeson, Divergent's Jai Courtney and a host of other up-and-coming international thespians.
Contrary to popular belief, Unbroken doesn't in fact mark Angelina Jolie's Hollywood début as a budding director. As well as helming a documentary called A Place in Time back in 2007, Jolie took to the director's chair for a not-so-critically-acclaimed romantic drama called In the Land of Blood and Honey four years later. Teaser trails such as these are of course rarely indicative of the finished product's quality, but if nothing else, provided that Jolie continues on the trajectory displayed here, viewers could be on track to respond that much more favourably this time around.
Unbroken steps onto the starting line this Christmas Day in cinemas worldwide.
