Unbroken, director Angelina Jolie's movie about World War II hero Louis Zamperini, opens on Christmas Day and the studio has released a short documentary clip to introduce his incredible story to moviegoers who don't know Lauren Hillenbrand's bestselling book about Zamperini's life and his success as an Olympic athlete at the 1936 Berlin games and his brave WWII service.

Of course, Military.com readers already know at least the outline of that story, but this clip has some great footage of Jolie interacting with Zamperini during the preparation for the film. Louis died at 94 earlier this year and didn't have a chance to see the finished film, but his message about perseverance in the face of overwhelming odds will finally make it to theaters this month. Check out the clip below.
