Jaw Dropping Trailer For The Impossible, From The Director Of The Orphanage

Juan Antonio Bayona has skipped from the sad, lonely spook-show of The Orphanage to a real-life disaster tale, realising a cinematic account of the 2004 Southeast Asian tsunami. He’ll still want the audience on the edge of their seat with this movie, and he’ll still want to charge up the emotions, but this looks like a completely different animal.

This looks genuinely horrifying.

Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts star as two Westerners caught up in the disaster.  I could question why it isn’t a film about natives of Southeast Asia, but until I see it, I’m just going to give Bayona and screenwriter Sergio G. Sánchez the benefit of the doubt, sit back and wait for their reasons to become clear.

Now. Play this full screen.

That’s cinema, taking us places we can’t go, putting us in stories we can’t be a part of. At least – not this many places, this many stories, and still walk away.

Incidentally, there’s an MPAA rating for the film already. It was given a PG-13 for:

Intense realistic disaster sequences, including disturbing injury images and brief nudity.

Intense? Even this trailer made me make actual, out-loud noises while I was watching it. I’m almost scared of sitting down in front of a cinema screen knowing it’s going to be filled with these images.

Still, I know I won’t be able to resist it – whenever it gets a release outside Spain. I can’t see dates for the UK or US anywhere.

Thanks to Los Horas Perdidas for the embed.
