Everything is still connected in the brand new and beautiful poster for Cloud Atlas. Taking the seemingly impossible job of adapting David Mitchell‘s rather epic and fantastical novel are directors Tom Tyker (The International, Paris, Je t’aime) and Lana and Andy Wachowski (The Matrix).
From the 19th Century to the near future, Cloud Atlas will tell 6 intertwining stories that venture across time and different locations. The film has an all-star cast that includes Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Hugo Weaving, Jim Sturgess, Hugh Grant, Keith David and Susan Sarandon, some of which will take on many different roles.
With a budget of over $100 million, Cloud Atlas is definitely a very expensive and risky project. The film will not appeal to everyone; the sheer length of it (164 minutes) and confusing idea may already turn people away. Nonetheless, when it was shown at the Toronto International Film Festival last week the film received a standing ovation and it currently holds a very strong score of 74% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Cloud Atlas is due to hit the USA on 26th October 2012 and sadly for us in the UK, we have to wait until 22nd March 2013.
