While The Pope was unable to watch the movie, he did join Angelina for a brief audience after the screening had ended on Thursday (8 January).
Angelina directed the WWII film which charts the life of Olympic athlete-turned-solider-turned prisoner-of-war Louis Zamperini.
Universal Studios said: "Pope Francis, aware of the incredible life story of Louis Zamperini, graciously welcomed the opportunity to view the film."
Angelina said it was an "honour" to be screen the movie at The Vatican.
