There’s a New Trailer for Angelina Jolie’s ‘Unbroken,’ and It Looks Terrific

Did you ever see Angelina Jolie’s first feature as a director, 2011’s In the Land of Blood and Honey? Were you really one of the people who contributed to that $303,877 box office haul? No, I didn’t think you were. So here’s your chance to get in on Jolie’s directorial oeuvre: Unbroken, a true tale about Louis Zamperini. The man’s life was interesting enough for his biopic to simultaneously look like a sports movie, a period drama, a fighter pilot movie, an ocean survival movie, AND a WWII POW movie. Jack O’Connell stars as Zamperini, the Coen Brothers cowrote the script, and their longtime cinematographer (and 11-time Oscar nominee) Roger Deakins worked with Jolie. Zamperini actually just died last week at the age of 97 — rest in peace, sir.

Speaking of the Coen Broens: Jonah Hill might also join the very celebrified Hail, Caesar!

Azealia Banks‘s “212” hit the Internet in December 2011. She still hasn’t had an album hit stores. Maybe that day’s closer now, though, since she just left Universal Music. Back in January, Banks tweeted about the situation: “I’m really in hell here. Universal needs to just hand me over to another label who knows what to do with me … I’m tired of having to consult a group of old white guys about my black girl craft. They don’t even know what they’re listening for or to.” And now, today:
