Unbroken

Unbroken: Louis Zamperini, whose life story serves as inspiration for Angelina Jolie's upcoming Unbroken, has died at the age of 97. Zamperini competed in the 1936 Olympics, and later served in World War II, during which he was shot down over the Pacific Ocean, survived 47 days in a life raft, and then endured a harsh imprisonment by the Japanese military for two years. Jack O'Connell will play him in Jolie's movie, which will open in theaters on December 25. [New York Times]

 

Frozen

Frozen: Disney's Frozen has become a worldwide phenomenom, not only at the box office but also in film tourism, and Norway is the happy beneficiary. The country has been busy promoting itself as the real-life inspiration for the movie's fictional Arendelle, and visitors are reportedly flocking there as a result, joining the likes of New Zealand (The Lord of the Rings trilogy) and Northern Ireland (TV's Game of Thrones) as new destinations for film-obsessed tourists.
