Universal has released the first trailer for the Angelina Jolie-directed film Unbroken, which tells the incredible true story of Louis Zamperini, an Olympian and WWII pilot who was trapped at sea for 47 days after a disastrous plane crash. Jack O’Connell plays Zamperini,
Just when you thought you knew the story of Sleeping Beauty either from the original account or the 1959 Disney animated classic, Maleficent turns the fairy tale on its head and does so in a most unexpected way. I was not looking forward to seeing this movie from the trailer alone, and felt like I had seen this story before. What could be new and how laughable would Angelina Jolie be as Maleficent. Well, there are three main reasons to see this film: (1) Jolie’s performance in the title role, (2) some spectacular special effects, and (3) the surprising way in which the story unfolds which I did not see coming but which I admired. There is even some humor thrown in for good measure, something I was not expecting to see despite this being a Disney movie.
