TRAILER: "Unbroken"

The Christmas release Unbroken, from Angelina Jolie, finally has a full length trailer. Based on the book by Seabiscuit author Laura Hillenbrand about the life of Olympic athlete and WWII hero Louis Zamperini (who just died a couple weeks ago), and starring Jack O'Connell in the lead role, but it looks like pretty standard Oscar bait to me. This trailer pushes hard on the oh-so-inspirational theme of the story, but I guess Seabiscuit did the same thing. I don't know- the buzz (sight unseen of course) is that this was supposed to be one of the big movies of the year, but I'm guessing it'll turn out similar to movies like War Horse and The Butler. Too middlebrow and corny to garner serious Oscar attention (aside from Roger Deakins' visuals, which look great as always). Even Wild looks less heavy-handed.
