Today Universal Pictures has announced that the World Premiere of one of 2015’s most anticipated films, Unbroken, will be hosted in Sydney by Director/Producer Angelina Jolie and cast members Jack O’Connell and Miyavi.
Unbroken saw Angelina Jolie spend six months in Australia late last year during filming so it makes sense that she return to host the world premiere in the country she has professed admiration for in the past. She will bring with her Jack O’Connell of This Is England and Skins fame, as well as Japanese star rockstar Miyavi and a whole host of Australia’s most inspiring local heroes – men and women – who embody the very essence of faith and survival captured so well in Unbroken.
Unbroken is an epic drama that follows the life of Olympian and war hero Louis “Louie” Zamperini who, along with two others, survived in a raft for 47 days after a his plane was shot down during World War II only to then be captured by the Japanese Navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp. The film will be dedicated to the loving memory of Zamperini, who passed away one week before the official trailer for Unbroken was released.
The Premiere will be held on Monday 17th November at The State Theatre, Sydney.
