Unbroken (2014)
As a boy, Louis "Louie" Zamperini is always in trouble, but with the help of his older brother, he turns his life around and channels his energy into running, later qualifying for the 1936 Olympics. When World War II breaks out, Louie enlists in the military. After his plane crashes in the Pacific, he survives an incredible 47 days adrift in a raft, until his capture by the Japanese navy. Sent to a POW camp, Louie becomes the favorite target of a particularly cruel prison commander.

1 EXT. OCEAN 1

We are panning, from high, a horizon that is water, all

water, a world of water. It is softly, warmly lit.

We are starting to hear the distant thrum of engines.

Our high sweep of the planet has brought into frame the sun,

big, red, rising, just at the horizon.

The engine noise approaches, louder, and is now

distinguishable as being many engines not one.

Our continuing pan brings into frame nine B-24’s in combat

wing assembly, speeding toward us.

2 INT. INSIDE THE LEAD AIRCRAFT 2

Close on the pilot, RUSSEL ALLEN PHILLIPS—“PHIL”.

Droning engines. Phil’s head bobs with the motion of the

plane.

The copilot:
HUGH CUPPERNELL. Scanning the sky for enemy

aircraft.

The top turret gunner: STANLEY PILLSBURY.

He looks out:
his view to one side, of the accompanying

planes on his wing, pans forward, over his own plane’s

cockpit and nose, to the ocean before us.

A point-of-view straight down at whitecaps racing underneath

us. The view is through the hatchmarks of a sight of some

kind.

Extremely close on a blinking eye.

Close on the bombardier, LOUIE ZAMPERINI. He raises his head

from his Norden bombsight, looks forward through the belly

bubble, squints at something dead ahead.

Above him, nose gunner ROBERT MITCHELL scans the sky.

3 Back to Phil, the pilot. He also reacts to something dead 3

ahead.

His view:
a small island in the middle of the vast ocean.

He speaks into his radio:

PHIL:

We. . . are. . . here.

Cup reacts, tensing after many soporific hours of flying.
