When people ask you if you can remember what you were doing or where you were on a particular day, probably alot of the time you wont have a clue but when it’s a anniversary for a world disaster you always seem to remember. 9-11, Haiti Earthquake, recent Japanese Tsunami & Earthquakes but on December 26th 2004 probably one of the most devastating Tsunami’s witnessed on tv worldwide South East Asia which is the focus of Juan Antonio Bayona’s new film THE IMPOSSIBLE.
The Impossible mark’s Bayona’s English Language feature debut, the director’s name may not be well known outside his native Spain however if we say he directed the Guillermo Del Toro produced The Orphanage I’m sure a few more film fans may know of his work now. His latest offering stars Naomi Watts, Ewan McGregor which tells the true story of one family’s experience during the 2004 Tsunami and over the interwebs the film’s first official teaser trailer has arrived on the disaster’s 7th anniversary. The film is in English however this new teaser trailer is dubbed in Spanish but what this trailer does do is showcase the stylish,also terrifying environment but never over stylizing in a way been disrespectful to the 300,000 people who lost their lives, it certainly teases and that’s what a teaser trailer should do.
Twitch found this trailer and have kindly translated the intertitles
