CLOUD ATLAS Trailer Shows Everything and Yet Nothing

Here's another book to add to your list to read before the film comes out. The Wachowskis have been hard at work on their latest endeavor, CLOUD ATLAS, which is based on the best selling 2004 novel. 

The film synopsis is described as "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." (source EPI)

Makes total sense right? Don't worry, the new trailer clears everything up for you.

I'm still a little lost, though. At least from the trailer, I'm getting a BABEL and THE FOUNTAIN. I dig the whole idea of the story lines interweaving, and I'm hoping The Wachowskis have created something unique and coherent. It's an epic cast, and I'm keeping my hopes up that the film will be just as epic and not end up in a cluster.

CLOUD ATLAS will be released October 26, 2012 starring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Hugo Weaving and Jim Sturgess.
