The Impossible trailer, a true story in the Tsunami
We've already seen one trailer for The Impossible and now there's an even better one. The film is based on the true story of a family caught in the middle of the horrifying Tsunami that looks as much at the terror of the immediate impact and the unbelievable after effects as it does the compassion and courage shown by many of the people caught in its path.
This new trailer focuses more on the people involved in the story to the backdrop of some of the shocking images. This looks incredible.
The previous Spanish trailer did show us some of the story but instead of focussing on the dramatic story of the couple it did pay the effects more than anything, now we get a trailer that tells us more of the dramatic side and plays to the human aspect of the film, the part that appears to be the strongest.
Here's the blurb 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.
Remember, if you haven't hit the previous trailer or have been following the film, this is directed by Juan Antonio Bayona who previously directed The Orphanage and is written by Sergio G. Sánchez who also wrote The Orphanage.
I have some high hopes for The Impossible now that I've seen this trailer I'm definitely going to watch out for this, mind you I have a wait, January 2013 although the US release is just a month before with a Spanish release in October.
Here's the new trailer that looks hugely impressive, the effects and sets are superb but it's the emotional drama that captures you the most.
