Summit Entertainment has released, via iTunes Movie Trailers, this new trailer for the true-life disaster drama ‘The Impossible.’ Starring Naomi Watts, Ewan McGregor, Tom Holland, Samuel Joslin and Oaklee Pendergast, ‘The Impossible’ marks the English-language debut of director Juan Antonio Bayona (The Orphanage). The film tells the story of a family caught in the mayhem of one of the worst natural catastrophes of our time when a devastating tsunami hit the coast of Southeast Asia in 2004. Look out for ‘The Impossible’ from December 21st in the US and January 4th in the UK. The official synopsis is as follows.

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.
