Universal released a new trailer for “Unbroken” earlier today. You can watch it below. The movie will be released on December 25, 2014 in the US and December 26 in the UK and Ireland.
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.
Domhnall and the cast of “Unbroken” are featured in Vanity Fair‘s November 2014 issue (with Jennifer Lawrence on the cover). We have added the photoshoot outtake and the magazine scan in our gallery. The magazine is on newsstands now so be sure to pick up your own copy!
Unbroken co-stars Garrett Hedlund, Jai Courtney, Miyavi, Domhnall Gleeson, Finn Wittrock, and Jack O’Connell, photographed at a sand quarry in the village of Heath and Reach, Bedfordshire, England.
Making a movie of Unbroken may be one of the biggest no-brainers in Hollywood history. Laura Hillenbrand’s World War II survival saga has been on the New York Times nonfiction best-seller list ever since it was published, three and a half years ago. The story it tells is about as movie-ish as real life gets: in 1943, Louis Zamperini, a lieutenant in the Army Air Forces and a star on America’s 1936 Olympic track team, was onboard a B-24 bomber that crashed into the Pacific; thanks to courage, smarts, and sheer will—the human spirit, as these attributes are sometimes called in movie trailers—he survived 47 days adrift on a life raft and another two years in a brutal Japanese P.O.W. camp. Yes, there were sharks and torture, but also unexpected redemption. As I said, a no-brainer. You could probably write the ad campaign yourself.
Author Colm Toibin who wrote “Brooklyn” talked about the movie adaption and the cast including Domhnall and his co-star Saoirse Ronan. The excerpt on Domhnall can be found below but be sure to head over to Independent Ireland to read the full story.
He also said there was wonderful chemistry between her and the ‘Stars Wars’ actor, who’s quickly becoming the toast of Hollywood and plays Saoirse’s love interest in the film.
“Domhnall Gleeson in Ireland plays it the other way around (to Cohen).
“He is just so sincere, so honest, so decent that he would mean pure stability and he sort of needs her and she can see that every word he says is true. So they’re playing the opposite ways against each other and she has to decide which way to go,” Toibin told Newstalk’s Pat Kenny.
While sorting some files for the site I came across some on set photos of “Brooklyn” from earlier this year which I forgot to add. Domhnall stars alongside Saoirse Ronan and the movie is expected to be released sometime next year.
