Brad Pitt attended the Unbroken premiere in his director wife Angelina Jolie‘s stead with three of their children and his parents in tow.

Brad Pitt & Family At ‘Unbroken’ Premiere

With Jolie sidelined with a case of the chicken pox, Pitt brought sons Maddox and Pax, daughter Shiloh and his parents, William and Jane Pitt, along on the red carpet. All three of the Jolie-Pitt children looked sharp in black and gray suits. While the kids all polished off their looks with collared shirts and ties, Pitt went a bit more casual with a simple black shirt under his black suit.

Earlier this week, Jolie announced in a video message that she would be missing a number of promotional events for Unbroken – including the Los Angeles premiere – due to the onset of chicken pox. “I just want to be clear and honest about why I will be missing the Unbroken events in the next few days,” Jolie said on NBC News. “I will be home, itching and missing everyone.”

Unbroken, Jolie’s second directorial project, tells the story of Olympic track star and World War II veteran Louis Zamperini. Starring rising British actor Jack O’Connell, it follows Zamperini from his early days as a hot-tempered youth through his brave survival story that included a 47-day span floating out on the Pacific Ocean followed by nearly a year in Japanese prison camps. The movie is based on Laura Hillenbrand 2010’s book of the same name.

Unbroken hits theaters Christmas Day, Dec. 25.
