Juan Antonio Bayona has looked like a serious talent ever since his top-notch ghost story "The Orphanage" premiered at Cannes in 2007. Five years later, we're finally getting a follow-up from the Spanish director, with his much-anticipated and long-in-the-works tsunami drama "The Impossible" selected to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. And some new pictures have debuted, showing Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts, along with their children, as a couple torn apart by the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami in the Indian Ocean.

Juan Antonio Bayona has looked like a serious talent ever since his top-notch ghost story "The Orphanage" premiered at Cannes in 2007. Five years later, we're finally getting a follow-up from the Spanish director, with his much-anticipated and long-in-the-works tsunami drama "The Impossible" selected to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. And a brand new Spanish language and trailer, along with some new pictures have debuted, showing Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts, along with their children, as a couple torn apart by the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami in the Indian Ocean.

Summit will begin rolling the film out on December 21st, suggesting that the studio have some Oscar hopes in mind for this one; we'll find out in Toronto if they're on the right track. Here's the official synopsis: Juan Antonio Bayona (The Orphanage) recreates the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami in terrifyingly vivid detail in this grueling survival story about a married couple (Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor) searching for their missing children in the aftermath of the disaster.
