The Impossible Now Second Highest Grossing Film All Time in Spain
Here's some good news for bulls on a day when the bulls saw red. According to my records, the Impossible is now the second highest grossing movie of all time (including spanish-language movies) in Spain. It's grossed $46 million so far!!! The highest ever for Spain is Avatar, clocking in at over $100 million. I don't think we'll beat that, but I think the Impossible's performance in Spain bodes well for its December platform release!
I just watched Ewan McGregor on Tuesday's Jay Leno Show & Naomi Watts on Wednesday with Jimmy Fallon along with two different previews. I was very encouraged about what I saw and heard. This won't be a blockbuster (unless The Hobbit bombs), but should have a respectable domestic box office. (No, I don't expect The Hobbit to bomb.)
Rotten Tomatoes is giving the movie an 81 & 96 rating for critics & audience interest.

Velazquez was recently honored with the Critic’s Choice Award from the National Radio of Spain for Best Classical Music for his score for the film, which has been breaking box office records in Spain over the last couple of weeks.
