The story of the ill-fated German warship Bismarck took hold of filmmaker James Cameron as a youngster, when he watched the 1960 British movie "Sink the Bismarck." He saw it again recently and was unimpressed. "Not that great a film. The special effects were terrible," said Cameron, who proved in "Titanic" and "The Abyss" that he knows a thing or two about the subject.

As in most countries, James Cameron's last two films "Avatar" and "Titanic" top the box-office list of all-time highest grossers in Spain. But that could change if native son Juan Antonio Bayona and his latest film about a family caught in the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami "The Impossible" continues its unlikely drive in the European country. Since its Oct. 11 opening, the film has grossed 29 million euros, over $37 million, in only four weeks of release. "Titanic" grossed 41 million euros in the country when it opened some 15 years ago, and only 2009's "Avatar" has beaten it. Currently the film is the highest-grossing film of the year in the country and the highest-grossing Spanish film of all time.
