Universal Unveils Exclusive Faith Footage from Upcoming UNBROKEN Special Edition DVD Release

 

UNBROKEN—one of only two faith films to receive an Oscar nomination—will be available March 24th with a special LEGACY OF FAITH Bonus Disc featuring extended testimonies from Louie Zamperini, Billy Graham, Greg Laurie and others

Los Angeles, Calif, March 16, 2015 |Christian News Service| — Universal Pictures Home Entertainment is releasing exclusive new footage today from its upcoming release of UNBROKEN on Blu-Ray and DVD March 24th with a special LEGACY OF FAITH bonus disc available on the DVD. One of only two faith films nominated for an Academy Award this year—UNBROKEN has received overwhelming support from faith leaders and audiences alike. The LEGACY OF FAITH Bonus Disc features 90 minutes of rich content from Louie Zamperini, Billy Graham, Greg Laurie and others.

 

“Louie Zamperini’s story has been an inspiration to tens of millions of people of faith, and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment is responding to this outpouring of support by creating a special bonus disc that celebrates his life and his testimony,” said Matthew Faraci, spokesman for Universal Home Entertainment’s faith outreach. “The Special Edition LEGACY OF FAITH bonus disc is loaded with 90 minutes of behind-the-scenes stories, heartwarming moments, and extra surprises that will delight everyone, providing the perfect resource for faith leaders seeking to continue the conversation and examine the lessons from this film.”

The Special Edition DVD includes the feature film UNBROKEN and the LEGACY OF FAITHbonus disc which contains more than 90 minutes of extra features with an introduction by Greg Laurie. The bonus disc highlights interviews and documentary footage of the real-life Louie Zamperini, along with Billy Graham, Greg Laurie and many others. Highlights include: CBN’s “Coming Full Circle,” Greg Laurie’s Harvest Crusade Interview and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association’s “Captured By Grace” documentary.

Adapted from author Laura Hillenbrand’s enormously popular book, UNBROKEN tells the inspiring true story about the resilient power of the human spirit. Olympian and war hero Zamperini survived on a raft for 47 days along with two other crewmen after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII—only to be caught by the Japanese navy and sent to a series of prisoner-of-war camps.

Faith Organizations Praise UNBROKEN:

  • Plugged In – “UNBROKEN is hard to watch but easy to praise. The horror of the inhumanity it depicts is wrenching. The triumph of one man's spirit and heart is both astounding and deeply inspiring.”

  • Faith Driven Consumer – “UNBROKEN is an inspiring faith-friendly film that will solidly resonate with Faith Driven Consumer audiences. This movie positively presents core biblical concepts such as hard work, overcoming adversity, forgiveness, love, Christ-like self-sacrifice, and God’s sovereign hand in our lives.”

  • World Net Daily – “That such a film came out of Hollywood is exactly why I’m optimistic about what can happen when the light of God shines in the place where ‘light’ is followed by ‘camera’ and ‘action’!”
     
  • CBN – "UNBROKEN is…a real-life reminder of the healing power of forgiveness and faith. This film is fifty years in the making—and worth the wait!"

  • Movieguide – “UNBROKEN extols fighting for liberty amid injustice, refusing to compromise one's values, perseverance, holding onto hope when there seems to be no hope, committing yourself to God, prayer, and forgiving those who persecute you because Christ first forgave you.”
