Here’s a new banner for the epic new sci-fi film Cloud Atlas, directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski and Tom Tykwer. This movie looks unlike anything I’ve ever seen before, and I imagine it’s going to be an incredible movie going experience. The movie stars Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugo Weaving, Jim Sturgess, Susan Sarandon, Hugh Grant, Ben Whishaw, Keith David, Jim Broadbent, James D’Arcy, and Doona Bae. Most of these actors play several different characters in the movie.
This movie is an adaptation of David Mitchell‘s novel, Cloud Atlas, which tells six thematically related stories, and are linked by the intersections of various characters throughout the stories that takes place over the course of a thousand years.
Here’s the Synopsis:
CLOUD ATLAS explores how the actions and consequences of individual lives impact one another throughout the past, the present and the future. Action, mystery and romance weave dramatically through the story as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero and a single act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution in the distant future.
The movie is scheduled to be released on October 26th.
