Summit Entertainment has released a great trailer for their emotionally intense looking drama The Impossible. The movie is based on a true story of survival about a family who is torn apart by the deadly tsunami that hit Southeast Asia in 2004. The movie was directed by Juan Antonio Bayona (The Orphanage), and stars Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts. This looks like a great movie that I'd want to see on the big screen.
Here's the 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.
The movie will be released on December 21st. Watch the trailer and let us know if you'll be wanting to check out this movie as well.
