A full five minute international trailer for the Wachowski Siblings & Tom Tykwer’s adaptation of David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas just dropped. It offers a fantastic look at how the Wachowskis and Tykwer have tied together the six disparate stories from the novel, with actors playing multiple roles across those various stories.
For those unfamiliar with Mitchell’s novel, it begins on a South Pacific sea voyage during the 19th Century, progresses to a post-apocalyptic future, and then winds back through each story before concluding in the South Pacific. All of the leading characters are reincarnations of the same soul.
This film 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. Warner Bros. will release Cloud Atlas October 26. [via THR]
