My favorite actor Tom Hanks (my Tommy) is back with one of the most epic films we’ve seen in years! The film has an all-star cast featuring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant, Susan Sarrandon, Jim Sturgess, Ben Whishaw, Jim Broadbent, Hugo Weaving and more. “Cloud Atlas” tells six separate stories that span the lengths of time and place — from an American traveling back home by ship after a sojourn in New Zealand in 1850 to a post-apocalyptic tribesman (Hanks) living in the remnants of what was Hawaii in the distant future. (All of the actors play multiple parts.) The film is about how one act of kindness can change the course of history. If you love epics and love stories, this one if for you!
The film is an adaptation of a best-selling book and is set for release on Oct. 26. “Cloud Atlas” was penned by David Mitchell; “A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius” is Dave Eggers — but, still: As directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski (the “Matrix” trilogy) and Tom Tykwer (“Run Lola Run”), the film adaptation of “Cloud Atlas” looks like one of the most ambitious, massive and fascinating movies of 2012. I can’t wait to see my Tommy with the lovely Halle Berry for the first time. I don’t want to miss this one!
Here is the brand new 5 minute trailer released a few hours ago!
