I’ve heard about this film for ages now, we’ve seen international and dubbed trailers – now the English theatrical trailer has arrived.

In what looks to be a terrifying natural disaster portrayal, The Impossible is sure to leave the audience shaking – at least during the Tsunami portion.

The drama which opens at the Toronto International Film Festival stars Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor in a recreation of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami.

Hit the jump for the trailer and synopsis. This isn’t one you should miss.

The film follows Watts and McGregor as they search for their missing children in the aftermath of the disaster.

The international trailers we saw months ago did a better job of showing the Tsunami and it’s devastating effects, this U.S. trailer gives away too much.

Just another reason for trailers to be shortened.

I’m looking forward to the disaster part of the film and the actual hunt for the family.

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.
