*The TV promo for Tom Twyker and Andy and Lana Wachowski’s “Cloud Atlas” has arrived.
The centuries-spanning tale based on the novel by David Mitchell stars Halle Berry along with Tom Hanks, Jim Broadbent, Ben Whishaw, Jim Sturgess, Susan Sarandon and Hugh Grant.
The official synopsis for “Cloud Atlas” is as follows:
“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.”
The novel consists of six nested stories that take the reader from the remote South Pacific in the nineteenth century to a distant, post-apocalyptic future. Each tale is revealed to be a story that is read (or observed) by the main character in the next.
The Warner Bros movie opens October 26. Watch the trailer below.
