New trailer for tsunami film The Impossible

TheImpossible.jpgA new trailer has arrived for the film The Impossible the film that is based on the true story of a family caught in the middle of the horrifying Tsunami, one of the worst natural disasters of our time and one that provided those frightening images of unstoppable waves of water and debris.

We've had one trailer which concentrated on the effects and the immediate impact of what was happening and another trailer which turned more to the family and the story, this new trailer goes all the way to the story and promises an emotional tale.

Let's look back at the previous blurb I posted 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.

Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts lead as the couple separated by the disaster and this one plays a lot more to the role of Tom Holland in the film as one of their children who is struggling for hope and meaning in a world turned upside down.

The film is written and directed by two men who previously worked on The Orphanage, Juan Antonio Bayona directed the film and Sergio G. Sánchez wrote the screenplay.

That's a fair bit of talent involved in the film, especially in front of the camera, and with the three different trailers I'm really starting to think that The Impossible could provide for a number of different audiences however it will undoubtedly be an emotional and moving film.

Here's the latest trailer through TrailerAddict:
