The preview, narrated by Tom Brokaw, highlights the story of Olympian and war hero Louis "Louie" Zamperini, the focus of the film. Along with two other crewmen, Zamperini (played by Jack O'Connell) survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in World War II -- only to be caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp.

The movie, adapted from Laura Hillenbrand's book, also stars Domhnall Gleeson, Finn Wittrock, Garrett Hedlund, John Magaro, Alex Russell and Japanese actor Miyavi in his English debut.

Unbroken hits theaters on Christmas day via Universal.
