Must Watch: Stunning US Trailer for J.A. Bayona's 'The Impossible'
Nothing is more powerful than the human spirit. Wow, this looks tremendous. After releasing numerous Spanish-dubbed trailers, we finally have our first full official US trailer for Juan Antonio Bayona's The Impossible, an intense drama thriller about the deadly tsunami that hit Southeast Asia in 2004. The film focuses on one family, played by Ewan McGregor, Naomi Watts and three kids, who are on vacation in Thailand when the wave comes in. I've been nervously anticipating this, because watching these events is intense, and in the trailer they capture that, especially with how real Bayona makes it all feel. Must watch!
Watch the first official US trailer for Juan Antonio Bayona's The Impossible, in high def from Apple:
Maria (Watts), Henry (McGregor) and their three sons begin their winter vacation in Thailand, looking forward to a few days in tropical paradise. But on the morning of December 26th, as the family relaxes around the pool after their Christmas festivities the night before, a terrifying roar rises up from the center of the earth. Based on a true story, The Impossible is the unforgettable account of a family caught, with tens of thousands of strangers, in the mayhem of one of the worst natural catastrophes of our time. The Impossible is directed by Spanish filmmaker Juan Antonio Bayona, of The Orphanage previously. The screenplay is by his writer Sergio G. Sánchez. This will premiere at TIFF, and arrive in theaters starting December 21st.
