The movie trailer for The Impossible has debuted and we’ve got your first look at the heart-wrenching film that is based on a true story. The movie is an account of a family caught, with tens of thousands of strangers, in the mayhem of one of the worst natural catastrophes of our time: the 2004 tsunami in Southeast Asia.

The amazing Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor play the parents (Maria & Henry) in a family that gets split apart after disaster strikes on the morning of December 26, as the family relaxes around the pool after their Christmas festivities the night before. Out of nowhere, a frightening roar is heard and a huge wall of black water crashes through the water towards the family and others.

Not going to lie, I had nightmares for quite some time after I saw some of the images and videos of the wave moving in when this catastrophe happened. I can’t even imagine what that would have been like. The film will be released in late December, around the time if year that the tsunami happened. Check out the trailer below.
