By all accounts, "The Impossible" is one of the best movies of the year. Not just heartwarming but legitimately moving, it stars Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts as a couple who, along with their three children, are flung into chaos and danger during the deadly 2004 tsunami. It's a story that is guaranteed to have you on the edge of your seat and leave a lump in your throat as you wonder if any of them can possibly survive.

Unless, of course, you've seen the trailer, in which case you know the answer — and the plot of the entire film.

This seems to be happening more and more these days. Movie studios are turning away from the classic tease, which tries to get you into the theater to find out what happens, and turning towards a new type of trailer where they show you what happens and hope you like it »
