November 3rd, 2012 11:07am EDT

The Impossible Ewan MacGregor and Naomi Watts' new disaster movie The Impossible is on course to break box office records in Spain.

Juan Antonio Bayona's drama, which chronicles a real-life family's struggles during the tsunami which lashed the coast of Thailand over Christmas in 2004, is set become the highest-grossing release for a Spanish film.

The feat will topple 2001 movie The Others, which grossed $35.5 million domestically, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Impossible opened in Spain on October 11 and has already racked up $35.4 million at the box office.

Although The Impossible, like The Others, is an English-language film, it qualifies as a Spanish movie because the director and producers are Spanish.
