Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor Star in The Impossible – See the Trailer
From Juan Antonia Bayona director of El Orfanato (The Orphanage) comes a story about the survival a family in the face of a violent tsunami that hit southeast Asia in 2004. Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts star in The Impossible that looks at the aftermath of the disaster and the difficulties of surviving and finding your loved ones. Bayona’s previous film was known for how much fear it instilled in audiences. Will he be going for a different type of fear with The Impossible? If nothing else I love the pairing of McGregor and Watts and hope that the movie can live up to this exciting trailer.
The Impossible will screen at the Toronto Film Festival next month and opens in theaters on December 21st.

Here’s the synopsis for The Impossible:
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.
