Angelina Jolie's 'Unbroken' is a Film 'We All Need Now More Than Ever'

Angelina Jolie looks absolutely gorgeous at The State of the Industry: Past, Present and Future and Universal Studios Presentation held at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace during CinemaCon on Tuesday (March 25) in Las Vegas.

The 38-year-old actress discussed her film Unbroken, which she just wrapped directing earlier this year.

“Over the years the project experienced a number of false starts,” Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley said of the project (via THR).

“I wanted to make this film because in the end its message is one that we all need now more than ever. It’s the journey of man finding his way through the darkness and into the light,” Angelina said when she walked on stage.

FYI: Angelina is wearing Juan Carlos Obando with Ferragamo shoes.

    Is it a coincidence that this uncoupling announcement comes on the day of her appearance on Glee, and it’s announced on Goop. I suggest that the ratings for Glee tonight will be large. Gwyneth doesn’t miss a trick.

    Steven Huvane doesn’t miss a trick, I should say. I can see his MO all over this.

  • Gorgeous JPs

    Angie is so elegant and articulate- Unbroken will be amazing. SO much to look forward to- Maleficent, Fury, Unbroken…and whatever fabulous surprises the JPs have in store. Sad for the Martin kids, but, it will be funny to see fishy p work the huvane divorce narrative- such a victim, but still so hot & desirable – like a 20 year old!

  • well

    @juju: I don’t care what other people say about Angelina Jolie. They don’t make me like her. I think she’s beautiful and I like what she is doing with her life. Hollywood will hype her today, but if she ever loses her beauty, you’ll see her face on the cover of STAR, etc without makeup, etc, with headlines talking about the beauty she “used to be.” It’s all in vain.

    is breathtaking beautiful
    .
    i never seen anyone as beautiful as angelina
    n everyone that has met her says that
    n that photos don’t do her justice
    that she is more beautiful in the flesh
    .
    but as i said
    physical beauty alone does nothing
    it’s her PERSONALITY n INTELLIGENCE
    that make her admirable n unique

    #140 Passing Through @Passing Through:

    …and we have yet to have even one interviewer ask her about her skin care routine, her hair, exercise routine or diet. I bet she’s already done a few major interviews for June mags for Maleficent and somehow I doubt those subjects came up in those interviews either.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    PT-

    An interviewer would never ask Angelina such base/inane questions. The interviewer would rather chew off their own arm then make an a$$ out of themselves and have Angelina give them her WTF look. LOL.

    Interviewers know that Angelina is so much more than her hair, her diet, her skin care regimen and her workout routine.

    Basically, they respect her a helluva lot more than they do Ticky.

  • Observer2

    @Rose:

    You’re really upset that Universal and Disney are going full on for both of Angelina’s movies. Unbroken and Maleficent. So, much so, that you’ve resorted to stealing a fan’s name.

    Sheesh, you trolls are as lame as your idol, Ticky.

  • Go Figure!

    Since Goop announced her split, Ticky should follow her lead and announce the split from Tacky. Lamey didn’t have too much to say about the split. And Dawne, that post you posted about the questions that Ticky should have been asked is priceless. You should send that to every TV station and correspondent. And who goes everywhere to promote nothing? Ole girl is looking like she’s been rode hard and hung out wet to dry.

  • Bizzy Bee

    Good evening Phool, I hope all is well with you and your family. I’m feeling a lot better, I can finally breathe. Getting plenty of rest and drinking lots of hot soup.
    —-

    I read in a magazine that Kathrine Heigel could only raise a mere 35k for the movie she’s trying to make. Wasn’t she the “It girl” a few years ago? Her bad attitude has a lot to do with her current situation, but there’s always a new girl waiting in the wings.

    I’ve heard some people calling the girl in Divergent the new Jennifer Lawrence. Already?? Hollywood is like a fast food joint, they just crank ‘em out.

  • Observer2

    @well:

    So, basically, you’re admitting to being a shallow twit? No wonder you’re a fan of Ticky’s. And don’t front like you’re not.

    Stopping by to say “Hello” to all the wonderful JoliePitt Fans.
    .
    Angelina is simply amazing.
    .
    Looking forward to the many exciting and much deserved and completely unexpected very big and astounding happy blessings coming her way in 2014. She, Brad and their children have so much happiness to celebrate together and let it be that way always.
    .
    So looking forward to seeing both Maleficent and Unbroken. Two films that will be very well received by the viewing public.
    .
    As always. God bless you and watch over you and keep you in His Personal care our darlings Angelina, Brad and your beautiful JoliePitt children.

    Thanks to all the fans for all the articles posted.

    @well:

    Not Angelina’s fault that you see yourself as a dried up prune. LOL.

  • well

    @juju: Like I said, that’s you. Out of all the billions of people in this world, you must be aware that there are other women with Angelina’s type of beauty, right? I happened to see 3 or 4 (one was black, another a blonde), but I’m sure there are many more all over the world, in other countries, out in the deserts, living in the jungles, etc. No one in my family has seen what I’ve seen. I was just lucky. I think it’s because I’ve been attracted to beautiful people all my life and they were just led into my path. Women like Jolie… they’re typically not famous and they are so used to getting attention for their looks that they don’t seek it.

    @LOVE BRAD:

    She cheated on him, he walked. She thought he’d come back. He didn’t. She got royally pissed off at him. Floated lies about him being the one that cheated. His people told her people if she didn’t knock that $hit off, he’d tell his side of the story. She freaked because she knew she couldn’t take sustain that kind of hit. So, she and her dad came out and said, no he didn’t cheat, he’s a great guy. Then she later came out and said their breakup was her fault, he’s a great guy and she was grateful that she got to spend part of her life with him and it took her 5 years to get over him. And Brad for years, called her Paltrow. She’s probably grateful that he didn’t call her a dead end bore. LOL.

  • Love the JoliePitts

    To my Lady Rose.
    .
    I was saddened to learn or your losses Rose. It is such a hard and very difficult thing to be separated from those you love and those you have known so long. Especially on those days you want to pick up the phone and talk to them and tell them how much you love them. What a heart wrenching thing it is to not be able to do so and only time brings some relief from the pain of that kind of loss.
    .
    I always try to remember those we love never really leave us, Rose. Even though we can no longer see them with our physical eyes nor touch them or hold them lovingly in our arms. Love keeps them with us always thru the loving memories we shared. And the knowledge that we will see them again gives us the will to go on.
    .
    I know sometimes I find myself talking directly to those I love who have left t his planet. I tell them how much I miss them and how much I need to hear from them and sometimes I will get a response via a dream that reassures me they are alright and very happy. And that gives me great peace.
    .
    Please know you and yours are in my prayers. And please also know, I understand completely your need to step away from the JJ site for a while. The troll’s insanity and their insane and very hateful posts must be bypassed and overlooked in order to enjoy reading the Real Fan’s posts, and sometimes that is hard to do.
    .
    I look forward to reading your many wonderful posts when you decide to return. Until then, God be with you and your family, my darling.
    .
    BTW – Every morning when I have my special “Rose Juice” – named after you, because you were the one who got me started on “Juicing.” I send you a special blessing, my friend. Take good care of yourself and know you are greatly loved.

    CinemaCon 2014: Angelina Jolie previews long-awaited ‘Unbroken’ LAS VEGAS —
    .
    At CinemaCon, most movie studios trot out a slew of their most recognizable actors and filmmakers. But when Angelina Jolie is in town, there’s really no need to bring any other star on stage.
    .
    That was the message Universal Studios conveyed Tuesday, when the actress surprised exhibitors by turning up to preview “Unbroken,” the World War II drama she directed, which is due out this Christmas.
    .
    It wasn’t that unusual to see a celebrity of her caliber at the event — this week, Johnny Depp, Clint Eastwood and Mark Wahlberg all are scheduled for Sin City. It was different, however, for Universal to showcase something other than big-budget summer fare. In previous years, the only studio to devote serious time to year-end releases was 20th Century Fox, which spotlighted “Life of Pi” and “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” in Las Vegas.
    .
    Universal clearly has high awards-season hopes for “Unbroken,” which the studio bought the rights to in 1957, originally hoping to develop it as a starring vehicle for Tony Curtis. After a series of false starts, the project got the green light after Laura Hillenbrand’s 2010 book about war hero Louis Zamperini became a bestseller.
    .
    “Angie made this movie happen,” studio chairman Donna Langley told the crowd of movie theater owners. “She fought for it and earned the right to direct it.”
    .
    Starring newcomer Jack O’Connell, “Unbroken” follows Zamperini as he goes from Olympic runner to Army pilot and is captured by the Japanese after his plane goes down. Jolie described the protagonist — who is 97 and lives in L.A. — as the “toughest man [she’s] ever met,” a “true hero” and a “man of faith.”
    .
    “I wanted to make this film because in the end, its message is one we all need now more than ever,” Jolie said. “It’s the journey of a man finding his way through the darkness and into the light. It is about an imperfect person — one who we and our children can relate to.”

  • Angelina the Great

    She is simply amazing and brings elegance to everything she does.
    It’s odd how Gwyneth and Jennifer work so hard at trying to come across as above it all and in the process look desperate and unlikable. Angelina manages to shine gloriously …through it all..and now she has a film that will possible become a serious Oscar contender and Brad and her beautiful family will be by her side.

    5 Burning Questions Before the Cannes Lineup Is Revealed

    1. What big movie stars will be there?


    And one or two more non-competition films will likely provide more of the same – including, possibly, Disney’s “Maleficent,” which could bring Angelina Jolie (and maybe her husband, too) to the South of France to show everybody what real movie stars are.

    Brad and Plan B really owned 2013, and I predict 2014 will be even better hopefully.

    Sad news about Gwen Paltrow and Chris Martin, especially for the kids. Best of luck to them. I don’t follow them, but I thought they had a strong marriage. Goes to show you never know what’s going on behind closed doors.

    No, she wasn’t there for her bachelorette party. Sorry.

    As thrilling as it would be to imagine Angelina Jolie in Las Vegas for a rollicking bachelorette party, the truth is she was recently in Sin City for something far more boring: work.

    The mom/actress/director/saint turned up at CinemaCon to speak during the presentation on “The State of the Industry: Past, Present and Future and Universal Studios.”

    Jolie, in a sharp white pantsuit, talked up her upcoming WWII film Unbroken during the appearance.

    Jolie, kids shop for grown-up toys in Las Vegas

    By NORM CLARKE
    LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
    .
    No @#$%& doubt about it: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie aren’t raising a brood of prudes.
    .
    For the second time in two-plus years, the Oscar-winning actress and their kids showed up at the Bonanza Gifts store on Tuesday and left with a cursing gag toy that would make a sailor blush.
    .
    This time it was a fake rubber hand that flips the bird accompanied by a torrent of x-rated language.
    .
    “It’s called the Swearing Finger and it’s really foul,” said Angie Hurt, store manager.
    .
    For Pitt’s 48th birthday, back in December 2011, his wife and kids gave him a fake parrot with a potty mouth.
    .
    She returned to the family’s favorite souvenir store with an assistant, her makeup artist and Pax, 10; Zahara, 9; Shiloh, 7; and 5-year-old twins Vivian and Knox
    .
    The flipping finger was among Pax’s items at the check-in counter, said Hurt.
    .
    “Pax bought a bunch of items of items from the gag department. He’s the jokester in the family. Everybody was giggling and all excited,” said Hurt.

    There’s just something so effortlessly chic about the way the Angelina Jolie wears fluid separates. Case in point? The ivory silk Juan Carlos Obando ensemble that the actress wore to Cinemacon in Las Vegas. Anchored by Salvatore Ferragamo pumps and worn with a shiny blowdry, Jolie’s look was the picture of understated elegance. Sigh.

    Zamerini’s survival story is a pretty amazing one that looks like it will make an equally effective film, and it’s clearly Universal’s big push for the Academy Awards this year. As a fan of Jolie’s directorial debut and this sort of genre in general, I think it’s going to be one of my favorite movies of the year just by the extensive footage shown.

    @Observer2: Angelina Jolie is naturally thin. Always been thin and she doesn’t have compulsive overeating disorders. She’s super duper busy in her life with Brad, kids, flying on jets all over the globe. Her mind is constantly engaged in a project. No time to sit down for long and gain weight. Bet you she does not exercise anymore. I can tell by her body and skin tone. She’s just really thin.
