Angelina Jolie definitely brightened things up in Sin City!

While attending CinemaCon's annual State of the Industry event at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas on Tuesday, the Oscar winner was a vision in white as she hit the stage to introduce footage from her second directorial effort, Unbroken.

"I wanted to make this film because in the end its message is one that we all need now more than ever," Jolie told the audience, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "It's the journey of man finding his way through the darkness and into the light."

Last month, Universal Pictures debuted a three-minute preview of the highly anticipated movie.

Unbroken tells the true story of former Olympian and real-life World War II hero Louis Zamperini who, as an Air Force pilot, crashed into the Pacific Ocean in 1943 and was subsequently taken captive by Japanese soldiers, who held him in a prison camp for the rest of the war.

Jack O'Connell, best known for his role on the British hit show Skins, stars as Zamperini.

Unbroken is scheduled to hit theaters on Christmas Day.
