‘The impossible’ sweeps away the spanish Box Office

1 Nov

It seems like it’s time to speak about spanish cinema.

We’re talking about the Bayona’s much-anticipated film ‘The Impossible’.  It was released a few weeks ago in spanish cinemas after wide acclaim at Toronto, San Sebastian and Sitges.


The results in the box office couldn’t be better.  In the first four days the movie just smashed all records by drawing 1.4 million admissions on just 633 screens in only four days. In the spanish market that means the greatest opening in history.

The main starring cast of the movie is Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor. Based on a true story, the movie deals with the experiences of a British family holidaying in Thailand for Christmas where they are caught up in the aftermath of the devastating tsunami of 26th December 2004. The film has met with almost universal critical acclaim, while in terms of box office appeal in Spain it has already supplanted The Da Vinci Code and Pirates of the Caribbean as the biggest box office opening weekend with sales around $13.3 million for the opening four days.

Also most national and international reviews support Bayona’s movie. In words of ‘The Hollywood Reporter’: As intensely concentrated as its title, The Impossible is one of the most emotionally realistic disaster movies in recent memory.

We couldn’t wait to enjoy this movie phenomenon in Spain, and went to the cinema too. We felt terrified, thrilled and touched by this epic story of survival.

The best: that it is a true story.

The worst: Nothing. Just the pressure in the chest that comes during almost the whole movie. Thrilling.

The movie also opens in the USA, but on 21st December
