The disaster drama The Impossible, the English-language debut of director Juan Antonio Bayona (The Orphanage), now finally has a U.S. release date.  Per Deadline, Lionsgate has slated the film for a December 21st release, pitting it against Judd Apatow’s This Is 40, the Tom Cruise-fronted Jack Reacher, and Kathryn Bigelow’s thriller Zero Dark Thirty.  That’s some formidable competition on the wide front, but The Impossible should benefit from the limited debut in New York and Los Angeles on that date.

The pic stars Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts as parents of a family caught in the tsunami that hit Thailand in 2004, with a story that promises “  “true-life terror is tempered by the unexpected displays of compassion, courage and simple kindness that Maria (Watts) and her family encounter during the darkest hours of their lives.”  The level of devastation on display in the film’s trailer is truly massive, and I’m interested in seeing how the drama plays out against the backdrop of this horrific catastrophe.

    Good to hear that this film, starring Naomi Watts in the lead as per trailer and poster credits, will hit the North American screens on Dec 21, 2012.

    I am really looking forward to seeing this movie, The Impossible. However it is not playing ANYWHERE near me! Its only playing in really big cities in CA, AZ, IL and NY and NJ. When is it slated for wide release to the rest of the country like in NC? I live in Fayetteville and most movies come here even if its for just a week like “Obama 2016″. Do they plan on releasing it anytime soon nationwide? I certainly hope so.
    Thanks, Ronald Fenn
