This holiday season she'll bring the true story of 'Louis Zamperini', an Olympic runner captured by Japanese forces during World War II, to the big screen to battle the likes of big screen musicals and blockbuster sequels.

These evocative and striking billboards certainly give a sense of what the period movie is about, from the crashing airplane over water, to the perseverance of a malnourished and dirty prisoner of war refusing to give up as he holds a wooden beam above his head as part of some sadistic trial from his captors.

It's powerful and intriguing imagery that catches your eye and works perfectly with the film's title.

These billboards were photographed around the streets of L.A. from November 29 to December 4, 2014, with giant billboards along Highland and Franklin Avenues in Hollywood and towering over Wilshire Boulevard in Westwood.

Obviously this compelling WWII drama is getting some impressive advertising support, but can the indomitable spirit of its subject matter shine through over alternative Christmas comedy and musical cinematic fare like The Interview, Into the Woods, Big Eyes and Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb.
