Unlike many Oscar hopefuls this year, "Unbroken" is getting a major prime-time push.
The movie was directed by Angelina Jolie, after all, and it comes from Universal, part of the NBCUniversal family along with NBC.
Former NBC anchor Tom Brokaw, author of "The Greatest Generation," interviews Jolie for the special "Angelina Jolie: Unbroken" at 10 p.m. Tuesday on NBC.
"Unbroken" is a World War II epic about Olympic track star Louis Zamperini who survived a plane crash and a Japanese POW camp to become an inspirational speaker. The special will feature Brokaw's interviews with Zamperini and his family, Japanese POW camp survivors and "Unbroken" author Laura Hillenbrand. Zamperini died in July.
In the program, Jolie discusses making the film, her marriage to Brad Pitt and her possible future in politics.
Jack O'Connell plays Zamperini. The actor and Jolie will be guests Wednesday on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," also on NBC.
