The Impossible Trailer



International clips and footage from this film, The Impossible,’ starring Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor, have been making the rounds online for six months, but now we finally have a full length theatrical trailer from Juan Antonio Bayona’s new film.


Set for a Toronto International Film Festival debut, the drama recreates the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami as we follow a married couple searching for their missing children in the aftermath of the disaster.


It’s a disaster film yes, but not a typical disaster film. There are no fake earthquakes or the end of the world prophecies. An astroid is going to crash into the planet and Aliens aren’t getting ready to blow the planet up with laser beams. This film is about a real disaster, that really ruined and changed lives forever.


Here’s the official synopsis: Maria (Naomi Watts), Henry (Ewan 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. As Maria freezes in fear, a huge wall of black water races across the hotel grounds toward her. 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. But the true-life terror is tempered by the unexpected displays of compassion, courage and simple kindness that Maria and her family encounter during the darkest hours of their lives. Both epic and intimate, devastating and uplifting, THE IMPOSSIBLE is a journey to the core of the human heart.
