Jolie reveals her Unbroken spirit Angelina Jolie has revealed footage from her upcoming survival saga Unbroken, which she directed and produced.

"I wanted to make this film because its message is one that we all need now more than ever," said Angelina, who took to the stage in a surprise appearance at CinemaCon, the annual convention of cinema exhibitors, in Las Vegas.

Shot in Sydney, Australia, last year, the film tells the true story of Lou Zamperini, a Second World War hero and athlete who ran in the 1936 Berlin Olympics.

Zamperini, played by Jack O'Connell, survived a harrowing 47 days afloat in the Pacific Ocean following the 1943 crash of his US military plane and spent the following two years as a prisoner of war after washing up behind Japanese lines.

Unbroken, to be released in December, is based on Laura Hillenbrand's book Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, And Redemption, which chronicles Zamperini's life.

Smoking, stealing and drinking by the time he was nine, he was convinced he was worth nothing and full of darkness."

The footage teased revealed affecting scenes of Zamperini's struggles, from his efforts to escape from his military plane after it crashed into the ocean, to the beatings he underwent as a prisoner....
