'Unbroken' Trailer Puts Angelina Jolie Front And Center In The 2015 Oscar Race

All right, everyone. Pack it up. Time to go home. The Oscar race is over. Or at least that's the way the new trailer for Angelina Jolie's second directorial effort, "Unbroken," makes it seem.

The true story of Olympic track star Louis Zamperini, who enlisted in World War II and wound up spending almost three years in Japanese prisoner-of-war camps, "Unbroken" has everything voters love: history, war, inspirational undertones, a literary original source (by Laura Hillenbrand), a score by Alexandre Desplat and a script by the Coen brothers (who rewrote a draft by William Nicholson and Richard LaGravenese). It also looks wonderful. Jack O'Connell stars as Zamperini, with Garrett Hedlund, Jai Courtney and Domhnall Gleeson filling supporting roles. The movie opens Christmas Day.
