UPDATE: Epic 6-Minute Trailer For 'Cloud Atlas,' Directors' Intro, Synopsis, Poster
13
Cloud Atlas

Here the official release trailer, nearly 6-minutes long, of Cloud Atlas, the adaptation of David Mitchell’s epic labrynth of a novel co-directed by Tom TykwerLana Wachowski and Andy Wachowski, stars Tom HanksHalle BerrySusan SarandonKeith David, Jim Broadbent, Hugo Weaving, Jim Sturgess, Doona BaeBen WishawJames D’Arcy and Zhou Xun.

The released synopsis reads:

"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 trailer below promises something heady as you'd expect (quite chatty too), and visually captivating. Running at close to 3 hours, with this team (cast and crew), and the mix in styles/technique from all 3 filmmakers, it should be quite the ride.

Events like this are why I love the movies, and why I love what I do. 

Ahead of its October 26 release, Toronto International Film Festival attendees will get to see it first, since the film will make its world premiere there.

First watch the intro from the 3 filmmakers; then watch the epic 6-minute preview underneath that; and finally, the poster at the very bottom; enjoy!
