Let’s get this out of the way up front. If you want to walk into the Tom Tykwer and the Wachowski Starship's “Cloud Atlas” pure, do not watch the video below. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. However, if you've read the book already it probably won't be too big of a deal.

Cloud Atlas, Tom Hanks

Let’s get this out of the way up front. If you want to walk into the Tom Tykwer and the Wachowski Starship's “Cloud Atlas” pure, do not watch the video below. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. However, if you've read the book already it probably won't be too big of a deal.

Now in the grand scheme of things, the clip below isn’t a huge spoiler. The film is long and sprawling and the clip itself is under two minutes. We’ll go as far as to say that even if you haven’t seen the film, you’ll know what the clip is building to anyway. And for those of you who do give it a spin, you'll be treated to a pretty good representation of how the stories interlock, with the filmmaker dipping into effective montages from time to time.

While our own reviewer was disappointed in the film, there’s no denying that it’s the biggest gamble of the year with a plot that’s hard to distill into a simple synopsis, so we’ll just remind you that it features performances by Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Hugo Weaving, Hugh Grant, Ben Whishaw, Susan Sarandon, Jim Sturgess and more. “Cloud Atlas” opens on October 26th on both IMAX and regular screens.
