Unbroken and Wild Trailers

As the elusive fall months begin to creep up on us, a barrage of theatrical trailers remind us that Oscar season is right around the corner. Early indicators have placed Angelina Jolie's sophomore directorial effort, Unbroken, as a serious awards contender. The gripping true story tells of Louis Zamperini, an Olympic runner who was captured and held in a Japanese prison during World War II. With a screenplay crafted by the Coen brothers, Unbroken appears to have the potential to be a truly epic feature.

One of 2013's most recognized films was Jean-Marc Vallee's Dallas Buyers Club. The filmmaker returns just one year later with his follow-up feature, Wild, which stars Reese Witherspoon as a woman with a dark past who embarks on an 1,100 mile solo hike to recover from a recent trauma. We clearly know that Vallee has the ability to bring great characters to life and perhaps Wild will give us another unforgettable one. Check out its trailer below.
