An incredible, five-plus minute international trailer for Cloud Atlas, the new sci-fi epic co-written and co-directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski (The Matrix) and German filmmaker Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run), hit the 'net yesterday; however, it apparently was not supposed to be released online yet as it was quickly taken down by most sites. Fortunately, Warner Bros. has released, via EW, a score of official still images from the movie, so you can gaze in wonder at the complex, emotionally-charged sci-fi goodness to come.
Based on David Mitchell's award-winning 2004 sci-fi novel of the same name, Cloud Atlas is comprised of six interconnected storylines, each taking place in different locations and time periods. The impressive cast includes Matrix alum Hugo Weaving, Hugh Grant, Jim Sturgess, Jim Broadbent, Keith David, Doo-na Bae, Ben Whishaw, and Academy Award–winners Tom Hanks, Susan Sarandon and Halle Berry.
Here's the synopsis:
An epic story of humankind in which the actions and consequences of our lives impact one another throughout the past, present and future as one soul is shaped from a murderer into a savior and a single act of kindness ripples out for centuries to inspire a revolution.
