It seems the mysterious world of "Cloud Atlas" is slowly but surely revealing itself. Just before Christmas, the first official set photo from the movie was revealed and with everything from a hover bike to a grand piano populating the picture, it was a quick tease at what is easily one of the most ambitious movies of the new year. Well, a few more peeks at the movie have emerged, and again, they give us a look at a world that is shaping up to be one of the most unique we'll see on the big screen in the next twelve months.

Bae Doona Cloud Atlas

It seems the mysterious world of "Cloud Atlas" is slowly but surely revealing itself. Just before Christmas, the first official set photo from the movie was revealed and with everything from a hover bike to a grand piano populating the picture, it was a quick tease at what is easily one of the most ambitious movies of the new year. Well, a few more peeks at the movie have emerged, and again, they give us a look at a world that is shaping up to be one of the most unique we'll see on the big screen in the next twelve months.

Korean site Hancinema has revealed the first look at Bae Doona, who is taking the role of Sonmi-450, a clone who works at the fast food joint Papa Song's diner (kind of like McDonald's) who rebels against the capitalist totalitarian society that created her. Occupy Seoul! Speaking of which, the concept art for the futuristic 2144 version of the city is certainly eye-popping. But of course, this is hardly indicative of what the final film will look like, as sketches and pre-production doodles tend to be best-case scenario sort of stuff that tends to change and morph as developing and filming continues. But needless to say, the Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer are aiming high.

Starring Tom Hanks, Hugo Weaving, Ben Whishaw, Halle Berry, Susan Sarandon and Hugh Grant, the time-spanning, globe-hopping "Cloud Atlas" will be revealed in late 2012.
