Did you know?
Actor Takamasa Ishihara (who portrays the cruel Watanabe) had to keep his distance from Jack O'Connell (who portrays Zamperini) on set in order to perform the acts of brutality towards him that were required for his role.

Universal Studios bought the rights to the story of Louis Zamperini in 1957 in the hope of developing it for Tony Curtis. In later years, Nicolas Cage expressed an interest. The project finally got the green light after Laura Hillenbrand's 2010 book about Zamperini became a best-seller.

While Zamperini and Phil are floating out at sea on the raft, the picture of a woman that Phil looks at is actually the real photo of his sweetheart and later wife, provided by his daughter to Angelina Jolie during filming.

The national markings of the American transport plane shown near the end of the movie (1945) have a red dot in the middle of the star. That red dot was deleted from American planes in 1942 to avoid any possible confusion with the "hinomaru" red circle used by all Japanese planes.

The crew fly in their uniforms - they should have been in flight suits.

In the coal yard, Watanabe forces Louis to pick up a large lumber timber. At one point, he yells, "Pick up! Pick up!" which Loius eventually does. The scene then cuts to various views of the other prisoners watching the scene unfold. These scenes were filmed at the same time because Watanabe can be heard in the audio background saying the same line in exactly the same way.
