Universal Pictures has set a release date for the Digital version of “Unbroken: Path to Redemption,” which tells the post-war journey of Olympian and World War II hero Louis Zamperini. The film will first release on Digital and the digital movie app Movies Anywhere on November 27th, then on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on December 11th. The movie itself is a continuation of 2014’s “Unbroken” and filled with inspiring themes of faith, love and resilience.
Directed by Harold Cronk (God’s Not Dead) and produced by Matthew Baer (Unbroken) and Mike Elliott (Peaceful Warrior), “Unbroken: Path to Redemption” is based on Laura Hillenbrand’s bestselling book and stars Samuel Hunt (Chicago P.D.) as Zamperini, Merritt Patterson (“The Royals”) as his wife, Cynthia, Will Graham as his own grandfather, evangelist Billy Graham, alongside an outstanding supporting cast including Gary Cole (“Veep”), Vincenzo Amato (Unbroken), Vanessa Bell Calloway (“Hawthorne”), Bobby Campo (The Final Destination), and Bob Gunton (The Shawshank Redemption).
The first film released in 2014 and was directed by Angelina Jolie. The film opened in third-place with a gigantic $30M weekend debut behind “Into the Woods” and “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies”. The drama went on to make over $163M for the studio. “Unbroken: Path to Redemption” only got a limited-release in theaters, opening last September the film had a $2.2M opening weekend before going on to make over $6M for the studio. Still, the film hit 1,620 locations on opening weekend and remained in the top-ten overall, against heavyweights like “Predator,” “The Nun,” “White Boy Rick,” and “A Simple Favor”.
The film also features a brand-new track by Grammy Award-winning and platinum-selling recording artists Switchfoot. The song, entitled “You Found Me,” is the lead single from the film’s soundtrack album.
